Ah, remember the good ol' days of the VMAs?

With this year's edition of the Video Music Awards set to air on Sunday night, MTV held a poll allowing viewers to vote on favorite moments and performances from past editions. The winner of "Most Outrageous VMA Moment?" The Kiss Heard 'Round the World, of course -- that infamous 2003 three-way smooch between Madonna, Britney and X-Tina. Other poll winners include Michael Jackson's 1995 medley for "Most Iconic VMA Performance" and TLC's "Waterfall" for "Best Video of the Year Winner of the 1990s." Wait a mean that won over Sir Mix-A-Lot's epic Baby Got Back video? Our anacondas don't want none of this poll then, hon.

Since Smallville has flown off the air and that old Bruce Wayne series idea remains buried in the Batcave, DC Comics and The CW are kicking around the idea of a show based around the circus performer-turned-deceased body swapper, Deadman. Supernatural creator Eric Kripke is overseeing the project, which is being eyed for a possible candidate for the 2012-2013 TV season. Our early casting pick? Adam Brody -- he's got the geek cred and is pretty damn pale already.

Say hello to your new Talk friends! With Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete out, Sheryl Underwood and Kris Jenner are joining CBS's answer to The View. Underwood has signed on as a full-time co-host, while Jenner is only appearing in a guest capacity... at least for now. These Kardashians... there's just no escaping them.

The new Charlie Sheen comedy Anger Management is deciding between three victims... uh, we mean, candidates for its showrunner slot. The trio of finalists includes Tom Straw (Night Court, Grace Under Fire), Chris Case (Mad About You, Spin City) and Bruce Helford (Roseanne, The Drew Carey Show). Whichever man wins... we lose.

Here's another batch of casting notices to finish off the week. Jamie Lee Curtis joins NCIS for a two-episode stint this November. Richard Dean Anderson will appear on Raising Hope as an overprotective father. (Does he also fight crime with ordinary household objects? We hope so.) Alan Dale, who played a bad dad on Lost, is set to guest star on ABC's Once Upon a Time as Prince Charming's royal papa. Finally, one-time Sylar and current Mr. Spock Zachary Quinto will pop up on FX's American Horror Story starting with its two-part Halloween episode.
