'Glee' Sidelines Ashley Fink, 'ER' Star Joins 'Awake' & More TV Casting News

by Chris Harnick, posted Sep 9th 2011 10:45AM
Ashley FinkAnother day, another 'Glee' cast shake-up story. We're more than a little bummed to report Ashley Fink's character is heading to the sidelines.

According to TVLine, Fink's Lauren Zizes character is quitting New Directions and ending her relationship with Puck (Mark Salling).

Why? Well, she's not part of the main cast and her storyline could be picked up down the line.

The main cast has already ballooned to close to 20 people, plus the guest stars from 'The Glee Project,' Idina Menzel and new players LeMarcus Tinker and Vanessa Lengies.

However, viewers might see Fink's Lauren here and there, just like they do Max Adler's Karofsky.

With the onslaught of new shows around the corner, Ryan McGee and I decided to talk briefly about 10 returning programs we're quite interested in (we each picked five shows).

And of course, the word "brief" was in our podcast planning documents, but it didn't quite work out that way. Between our opening gabfest about the FX show 'Louie,' which concludes its second season tonight, and the discussions of the other 10 shows, the podcast ended up being about 90 minutes long.

The rundown of shows we discussed, which includes 'The Good Wife,' 'Supernatural,' 'Boardwalk Empire,' 'Luther' and 'Glee,' is below.

Ray Romano, Charisma Carpenter, Seth RogenWhile some shows have lured famous movie stars into leading roles, other shows are taking a more temporary approach this fall with big-name guest stars booked for short-term stints on the small screen.

Fall TV will host several major reunions that you definitely won't want to miss. Terry O'Quinn will head back to the island for a stint alongside former 'Lost' costar Daniel Dae Kim on 'Hawaii Five-0,' while Ray and Debra are back together (sort of) when Ray Romano stops by 'The Middle' to visit his former 'Everybody Loves Raymond' costar Patricia Heaton. And let's not forget 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters playing a married couple on an episode of 'Supernatural' this season.

Wanna know who else is heading to TV this fall? Check out some more of the biggest and best guest stars, including 'The Wire' alum Michael K. Williams (Omar!), Oscar-nominated actress Patricia Clarkson and crooner Josh Groban in AOL TV's fall guest star gallery.

Holly Robinson Peete Officially Out at 'The Talk,' 'The Good Wife' Gets Digital Magazine & More Weekend TV News

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 3rd 2011 3:00PM
Leah Remini, Holly Robinson PeeteAfter weeks of speculation, Holly Robinson Peete announced that she has officially been released from her contract at 'The Talk.'

"After weeks in limbo, I was finally 'officially' given word from CBS today that I have not been picked up for the 2nd season of 'The Talk," she wrote on her website. "I realize there have been several reports and 'leaks' for sometime to this effect but until today I was not contractually released which prevented me from moving on and finding other work. While I am relieved to have this closure, it doesn't diminish my disappointment one bit about not continuing with a show I worked very hard to launch and love dearly."

Peete thanked her fans and CBS for the ability to raise awareness about raising autism and special needs children.

Costar Leah Remini was released from her contract a week ago. Meanwhile, Molly Shannon and Kris Jenner have both signed on to guest host this season.

Julianna Margulies: 'Good Wife' Premiere Sex Scene Too Hot for Hubby (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 2nd 2011 4:55AM
Julianna Margulies, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Julianna Margulies certainly got David Letterman's attention when she started talking about the season premiere of 'The Good Wife' on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). It was her use of the word 'steamy' twice in describing one scene in particular.

"I'm inclined to believe you that it's steamy," he said. "I guess I don't know what steamy is. Nudity?"

"Semi-nudity," she said. "You can't do full frontal nudity."

But Letterman tried to get out of her just how much we were going to see, and all Margulies would confirm was a lot of thigh. She did say, though, that it's the first time she's been a little concerned about her husband watching her on television.

by Chris Harnick, posted Aug 11th 2011 4:00PM
The Good WifeOne thing CBS has made quite clear about 'The Good Wife' Season 3 is this: There's a new sultry Alicia Florrick in town.

Yep, as if the first "Don't let the name fool you." poster wasn't enough, CBS has rolled out another new sexy 'Good Wife' Season 3 poster.

This new ad features Julianna Margulies clad in a black dress, shoes to the side, curled up in a chair and staring directly into the camera. It's a far cry from the Season 1 key art that had the actress standing by her man, touching her wedding ring.

Season 3 will also see a new pairing: Eli and Kalinda. According to TVLine, now that Eli Gold (Alan Cumming) has an office at Lockhart/Gardner, he'll be using Kalinda's (Archie Panjabi) investigator services from time to time.

"What's fun about the show is you get to mix different relationship cocktails," Robert King, 'Good Wife' co-creator and executive producers, said. "And there just seemed to be something right about Archie and Alan and the way that they would be drawn together."

Check out a full version of the new Season 3 poster below.
