With Lindsay Lohan starting a 90-day stint in rehab on Thursday, we're hoping that once she gets out in August, she can keep herself busy and gainfully employed with a return to TV.
Lohan's last TV appearance on pal Charlie Sheen's Anger Management in April was a modest success. She played a caricature of her public persona -- named Lindsay, of course -- who consults Charlie (Sheen) for anger counseling, complete with shtick references to her notorious personal life, including drugs (donut powder mistaken for cocaine) and court dates. Despite receiving a mixed chorus of jeers, the Anger Management gig got this endorsement from Newsday: "There was an ember of something that seemed totally lost in all the coverage, headlines and nonsense of the last few years: Lohan actually has some talent."

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
At the FX upfront programming presentation Thursday, network chief John Landgraf officially announced plans to launch a new, younger-skewing network called FXX in September.
Fall TV Scorecard: What's renewed? What's canceled?
The new network joins FX and FXM (formerly the Fox Movie Channel) in Fox Cable Networks' suite of channels and will officially launch on Sept. 2. The channel, which Landgraf says will target adults 18-to-34 who love "outrageous characters" and "big laughs," will be bolstered by existing FX comedies It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League and Legit, all of which will now air on the new channel. (In making the announcement, Landgraf officially ordered a second season of Legit, a 10th season of Always Sunny, and a fifth and sixth season of The League).

Question: I'm thrilled that Veronica Mars fans will be getting a long-awaited movie. I have a few questions related to the Kickstarter campaign that made it possible: 1) Were you surprised that the goal of $2 million was reached in only 24 hours given the ratings challenges the show always faced as a TV series? 2) There was some controversy about whether asking fans to fund the project instead of having the studio fund it was ...
FX is developing an action/horror drama with Kurt Sutter and former Hell on Wheels showrunner John Shiban, the network announced Tuesday.
FX president and general manager John Landgraf came to the network in 2004 when the channel's scripted offerings were limited to Nip/Tuck and The Shield. Since then, he's built a stable of hits, from the recently departed Rescue Me to ratings monster Sons of Anarchy to the critically beloved Justified. Landgraf talked to TV Guide Magazine about doing Elmore Leonard justice, bucking the antihero trend — and why he didn't pick up Breaking Bad.
For many people, both pit bulls and parolees are to be feared. For Tia Maria Torres, they're what keep her going.
On the Animal Planet series Pit Bulls and Parolees, Torres runs the Villalobos Rescue Center for "bully breed" dogs. With more than 200 pups on her hands at most times, she and her daughters Maria and Tania and twin sons Mo and Kanani work tirelessly on getting them adopted into good homes. But Tia also admits her mission would never be so successful without the help of the parolees she hires to work for her — a program that was born out of an idea from her husband AJ.
Although Torres has been rescuing dogs for years, the case on Saturday's episode (10/9c) is the worst she's ever seen. "That dog should've been dead," she tells TVGuide.com.
