Chelsie HightowerAlong with the good news that 'So You Think You Can Dance' (and fiercely fabulous host Cat Deely) has finally been recognized by the Emmy Awards comes the first all-star announcement of season 8.

Judge/executive producer Nigel Lythgoe told TV Guide that the first dancer returning to the show is none other than Chelsie Hightower, current 'Dancing With the Stars' pro. "We're delighted she's coming back from 'Dancing With the Stars' for us," he told the site.

The move isn't permanent, though -- "She'll be going back to them, of course," he admitted.

'One Tree Hill' is welcoming back an old star as a series regular next year. Unfortunately, it's not Hilarie Burton or Chad Michael Murray. Fortunately, it's the smokin' hot Tyler Hilton, who will reprise his role as home-wrecking musician Chris Keller. [Zap2It, TVLine]

Shaquille O'Neal has found his first post-retirement gig. The former Lakers and Bruins star has signed on as a sports announcer for Turner. [Deadline]

Casting call: three summer series have added new actors to their ranks. Rebecca Mader is stopping by 'Alphas,' David Andrews will appear on the 'Covert Affairs' season finale and Rick Malambri will break hearts on ABC Family's new drama 'The Lying Game.' [TVLine]

Interesting about Chelsea Hightower coming back to "So You Think You Can Dance" and I agree with
dominatr27 that Shaq never played hockey, only basketball for the Lakers and Heat, etc..
I hope this clears things up.

"Former Lakers and Bruiins star"??? Excuse me, but Shaq never played hockey. Try maybe "Former Lakers, Celtics, Magic, Cavaliers and Heat Star Shaquille O'neal." Doesn;t anyone edit for content and accuracy anymore? Who even wrote that? Obviously NOT a basketball fan.
