Anna Maria Horsford
Things are not looking bright for New Girl's resident goofball, Schmidt (Max Greenfield), in Season 2.
Schmidt already faces competition from Cece's new boyfriend, who will be played by Nelson Franklin. And now there's a second character who isn't exactly his biggest fan: Winston's mom. Television veteran Anna Maria Horsford will guest-star as the "tough-talking" Charmaine Bishop, TV Line reports.

I can't believe Glee cast a love interest for Rachel! Please give us Finchel fans some hope! — Charlie
NATALIE: Two pieces of bad news and one good one: First, executive producer Ian Brennan tells us that fans will actually like new boy Brody Weston (Dean Geyer). Second, "When we come back, Finn is a mystery; no one has heard from him," he says, noting that once Finn does return, it'll be a great season for Finn fans. And now the good news... sort of: Brennan says Rachel won't just totally forget about Finn. "Rachel has moved cities, but hasn't quite moved on, and is caught in that period between being a teenager and being an adult," he says, "So he's at the forefront of her mind, all the while the rest of her life is totally changing."
Everyone's asking about Booth's reaction to being left behind on Bones, but what about Brennan? How does she feel out on the lam? — Brittany
ADAM: Good question! "Being on the road has made her...

There may be hope for New Girl's Nick and Jess on the horizon!
The budding relationship between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and roommate Nick (Jake M. Johnson) became as adorkable as the leading lady over the first season, and fanse began rooting for the pair to take their friendship to the next level. That was exactly what executive producer Liz Meriwether wanted. "I like to torture people," she jokes of the will-they-or-won't-they tension between the duo.

Could Downton Abbey be the one to dethrone four-time defending drama series champ Mad Men at the Emmys? The upstairs/downstairs crew nabbed a whopping 16 nominations, but its haul wasn't the only shocker Thursday morning.
Forbes has released its list of the highest-paid actresses on television this year. The countdown features a variety of stars from Felicity Huffman to Mariska Hargitay, but which lovely lady earned top honors in 2012?

Question: What the heck is institutionally wrong with NBC that they can't seem to handle transitions with any class or make a choice and stick with it? I can remember the first Today show debacle when they pushed out Jane Pauley and put poor Deborah Norville in her place, only to abandon Norville to take the brunt of the backlash for their bad decision. Jump ahead to the next century where they push Jay Leno out before he's ready to go, but won't completely let go of him because they can't make up their minds. They put Leno where he's pretty much guaranteed to fail in prime time and then give up on Conan O'Brien before he's really had a chance to grow into the job. Again, treating both performers pretty shabbily considering what they'd contributed to the network.
