Burt Reynolds is getting animated.

Burt Reynolds is awesomely guest starring on Archer as himself, in animated form. Should provide for a good heartwarmingly awkward scene when he meets Sterling Archer, considering how obsessed the master spy is with Reynolds.

Barry the bellboy is getting a new job. True Blood's Chris Coy is joining Treme as a series regular. Maybe he can help make this show actually about something.

That backdoor pilot of the Hot in Cleveland spinoff with Cedric the Entertainer is finally turning into something. Niecy Nash will star in the untitled spinoff as the female lead, opposite Cedric's Reverend Boyce.

Summer Glau joined TNT's upcoming Scent of the Missing, which is about a K-9 search and rescue volunteer who works with her partner, Puzzle, a golden retriever. While I have no problem having Glau in a full-time job, they really should change the title of this show to something less creepy.

HBO's racetrack drama Luck will debut on December 11 following the Boardwalk Empire Season 2 finale, a month earlier than scheduled. The rest of the episodes won't air until 2012, but hey, getting the premiere a month early is pretty lucky, no? (I couldn't resist.)

Bravo renewed Million Dollar Decorators for a second season. All five of Season 1's interior designer will return. I don't really get why, though, because seeing someone get paid to decorate Joe Francis' $30 million estate for his wedding is the last thing I want to watch more of.

NBC will be launching the reality series Who's Still Standing? in December. The series, hosted by Cash Cab's Ben Bailey, will be a combination of trivia and physical comedy. At least it's a change-up from Deal or No Deal.

Following negotiations, Fox and DirecTV have reached an agreement. You're not going to lose any of the Fox Networks channels! Hooray! Now you can watch all the Fox Deportes you want!
