TV News – 5/11/10

The sun is shining and it’s Tuesday, so by law the day has to be better than Monday… doesn’t it? I had an amazing morning, interviewing Hart Hanson and Emily Deschanel of Bones, and it was a blast. Watch the site for the interview to be posted soon. That’s enough jabbering let’s get to the news.

Burt Reynolds has been cast to play a retired CIA agent on the always entertaining Burn Notice. Reynolds’ character will be an example of what Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) could become if he “succumbs to some of the demons that haunt ex-spies.” I’m excited about this because Reynolds is bound to bring lots of depth to the character and serve as a great cautionary tale for Michael. Check out Burt in the 4th season premiere of Burn Notice on June 3rd. Source

55479022Michael Steger (90210) is going to be guest starring on True Blood as a gay prostitute that gets mistaken for his lover, Talbot (Theo Alexander). He’ll appear in an episode in season 3 with the possibility of coming back in season 4. Frankly you could tell me that they are changing the color of the sky in Bon Temps to green and I’d be happy. I just can’t wait for the season premiere in June can you? Source Source

More after the jump.

Happy Town isn’t really in a happy place right now. The new mystery show has been pushed to June 2nd and then it’ll burn off it’s remaining episodes. It just hasn’t been getting good ratings, and that’s a shame because while it’s creepy and confusing, the show seems to be building up to a great conclusion. If you haven’t watched it yet, you can catch in on Wednesday, May 12th, then it’ll move to June 2nd for the rest of the time. Source

Kristin over at E!Online has some juicy spoilers for us, including some on True Blood, Cougar Town and Modern Family. For more on these spoilers and others please jump with me, but beware SPOILERS AHEAD!

Speaking of True Blood, Lara Pulver (Robin Hood) has been cast as Sookie’s fairy godmother, Claudine. If you’ve read the books you know that Claudine plays a big role in 2 of the books and I’m so stoked for this news. First of all, the more True Blood news we get the closer we are to the premiere on June 13th and second I loved Pulver in the BBC Robin Hood she was fabulous. Are you getting excited for the premiere of True Blood? Source

That’s all for today. Don’t miss all new episodes of American Idol at 8 pm and Glee at 9 pm both on FOX. Have a Glee-tastic night everyone!
