Scott Porter, Nora Zehetner
Fresh off his recently wrapped run on NBC/DirecTV's just-renewed Friday Night Lights, Scott Porter has joined the cast of Masterwork, a Fox drama pilot about an FBI agent (Aussie actor Matt Passmore) who tracks down stolen antiquities. (Think Indiana Jones with a badge.)

Since her breakout role on Murphy Brown, Faith Ford has become a go-to for straight-woman roles, in no small part because of her turn opposite Kelly Ripa on ABC's Hope & Faith. To mark the first season's DVD release Tuesday, TVGuide.com caught up with the 44-year-old Alexandria, La., native. She looked back on the premiere's massive food fight between her and Ripa, plus the show's madcap costume changes and a slew of special guests, including Regis Philbin as Handsome Hal. She also talked about why her first-season teenage daughter was replaced by a then-newcomer named Megan Fox.

For brevity's sake, we ruled out any one-word catchphrases (including "Blerg," "D'oh!," and "Aaaayyyy"), but feel free to
tell us how stupid we are mention those and all your other favorites after the jump.
Mark Pellegrino, whom Dexter fans for certain will remember as Rita's hate-to-hate-him druggie/abusive babydaddy, has been cast on ABC's Lost, sources confirm for TVGuide.com.
Pellegrino will likely make his first appearance in the two-hour Season 5 finale, airing May 13. His casting was first reported by EW's Ausiello.

Mel White and Mike White
Life's a beach? Not for Mel and Mike White. The father-son duo — Mel's a famed clergyman and author; Mike's written and acted in School of Rock and Freaks and Geeks — were led way off-course on Sunday's Amazing Race in search of a gorilla statue at the beach, when it was in fact at the zoo. That wasn't the only factor that led to their ouster. Find out what and who else played a part, why they think Margie really passed out at the Pit Stop and if we could be seeing Reese Witherspoon on the Race one day.

Have you missed the Osbournes? If yes, then break out the earmuffs because the family is making its television comeback.
Instead of just witnessing the dysfunction like we did on MTV's The Osbournes, Osbournes: Reloaded (premieres Tuesday, 9:20 pm/ET, Fox), the new show from the first family of rock (or, as Kelly puts it, "the first family of being f---ed up"), takes on a classic family-television format: the variety show.
It's fair to point out that the Osbournes are no Osmonds. But just don't point it out to matriarch Sharon Osbourne. One unlucky journalist recently experienced the proud mother and wife's wrath when she asked during a conference call if ...
