See, there is life after Harry Potter!

Hot on the heels of Saturday night's season-best SNL, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, the sketch comedy series has recruited a former boy wizard to keep the magic going. Daniel Radcliffe will take a moment out of his busy schedule to host the January 14th show, with musical guest Lana Del Ray. Any chance of Lindsay Lohan reprising her role as Hermione? On second thought, we'd rather not see that. Unless, of course, the ex-Harry Potter finds a way to conjure up Lohan circa 2006...

MTV has officially announced the return of Punk'd, and while Ashton Kutcher will serve as the executive producer, he won't host... and it doesn't seem like Justin Bieber will either, as we once feared. Our question: Who will be the next Dax Shepard or B.J. Novak?!

Take that, American Idol! Season 2 of The Voice will kick off with a special Super Bowl ad directed by Friday Night Lights creator, Peter Berg. The 60-second spot will feature the show's crew of judges -- that would be Xtina, Cee-Lo, Blake and Adam -- attacking each other with martial arts moves and various weapons. Wow... can we see that show instead?

Angel alum Amy Acker will be joining the Once Upon a Time universe as Lee Arenberg's character's (Leroy/Grumpy) love interest. We'll start getting excited about this as soon as we get over what happened to Graham.

Looks like Jeff Probst is thinking ahead about what he'll do when Survivor's torch is finally snuffed out. Probst's in-the-works talk show has been cleared to air in 80% of America's top TV markets, including New York, L.A., Philadelphia and St. Louis. The series, which will be devoted to "relationships, family issues and newsmakers of the day," is set to debut in September 2012, just as Survivor enters its 25th season.

Meet Heather Dubrow, your new Season 7 Real Housewives of Orange County cast member. Dubrow's husband is a plastic surgeon, though the Housewife boasts that she's never had plastic surgery herself, "other than Botox and filler." We'd laugh, but that is actually impressive -- especially if you've watched as many hours of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as we have.
