We might have all been under a tryptophan-induced sleep for the past few days, but the TV world never stopped making news.

Wisteria Lane is going to be getting some blasts from the past... again. Dana Delaney, Kyle MacLachlan and Andrea Bowen will all return to Desperate Housewives in coming episodes. They're joined by Brenda Strong, who will reprise her role on-screen as Mary Alice December 4. So don't be surprised if they bring Edie back from the dead, too.

One Tree Hill's Hilarie Burton will guest star on Castle as Kay Cappuccio, a Kardashian clone reality TV star who is famous for being famous. The real ones are intolerable enough -- we don't need any fictional "stars," Castle.

The CW bought Golddigger, a drama about a young, definitely too-beautiful treasure hunter who tracks down artifacts and will probably have that Kanye West song for its theme. The network also bought the interestingly-titled Swordfighting, which, believe it or not, is a couples comedy about two duos who have been friends and neighbors for years, but are put to the test when the wives fall in love with each other.

NBC gave Sarah Silverman's project a pilot order. The untitled sitcom stars Sarah Silverman as herself, a single woman who got out of a long relationship. So, it's Whitney, post-Alex breakup. Can't she just join the cast of The League instead?

FX picked up the web series Broad City -- the same series that had that hilarious boob bumping video with Amy Poehler and Kristen Schaal -- with Poehler serving as executive producer. It's like Christmas for comedy nerds!

Speaking of: Turns out Flight of the Conchords might be getting a second life, according to Bret McKenzie, as a movie. It better have a Muppets cameo.

It's family comedies abound at the major networks: ABC picked up The Cult of Mac, a half-hour comedy that focuses on Ted Macfadden, who travels back in time to visit his childhood (and crazy dad Mac) in Chicago, 1987 for parenting inspiration. NBC, meanwhile, picked up Four Play from actress Liz Vassey, which centers on four people creating an unlikely family and raising an adopted child.

One Life to Live and All My Children won't be getting second lives as online series, after all, thanks to the good ol' economy. The bright side: You won't have to teach Grandma how to use the computer.

An E! spokesperson confirmed the rumored Kardashian Christmas special will not be happening. It's okay, Kardashian fans, -- if you really wanted to know all about their Christmas, check any tabloid for the next few weeks.
