Today we learned a little bit more about Ashton Kutcher's new gig, GLAAD chose CBS as Most Homophobic Network Ever (kidding!), and Charlene Yi signed on to a show way past it's prime.

At long last, details on Ashton Kutcher's Two and a Half Men character have been revealed. According to CBS exec Nina Tassler, his name is "Walden Schmidt, and he is an Internet billionaire with a broken heart." Also, the Season 9 premiere "will be a two-parter [airing] over two weeks" starting September 19th at 9/8c. We're waiting with baited breath, Nina! (Please note my sarcasm there. Side note -- his character in A Lot Like Love was also an Internet billionaire with a broken heart, correct?)

GLAAD has spoken. ABC Family and The CW topped the organization's LGBT-inclusive show rankings this year. (That should cheer up our favorite Little Liar! Also, props to GLAAD for recognizing my dearly departed Greek.) CBS came in last place for broadcast networks with an "adequate" rating, up from their "failing" rating last year. Hah. Spot on.

Ugh. Charylene Yi (the whiny stoner from Knocked Up) has joined the cast of House. Well, folks, I am officially not watching House this fall. PS -- two new female hires? Cuddy, is that you?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Hagan has booked a recurring role on 90210. Love her, and love post-Buffy (and Freaks and Geeks!) success.

Honorary Oscars will be awarded to Oprah and James Earl Jones this year. BECAUSE OPRAH DOESN'T ALREADY THINK SHE'S JESUS OR ANYTHING.

Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak on Season Five: "We have a big arc and shape of where we want to go, and we kind of know our ending." Oh, man. You just know that finale's going to be a tearjerker.

Alec Baldwin will host the season premiere of Saturday Night Live this fall, and Melissa McCarthy will host the second episode. Not too shabby, SNL! (Although this will be Baldwin's sixteenth time hosting, so don't be ashamed if you feel like it's getting a little old. It is.)

Although The Glee Project has not officially been picked up for a second season, executive producer Michael Davies is confident the show will return. More Zach Woodlee, theater kids with superiority complexes, and endless almost-unbearable second-hand embarrassment? All good things!
