So much for no stunt casting this season on Glee.

Gloria Estefan is in talks to guest star on Glee in January as... Santana's mom. Perfect casting, but seriously, where in the world are Rachel's dads?! Ricky Martin will appear in the same episode as a Spanish teacher, probably because Mr. Schue spends all his time with New Directions and running political campaigns instead of teaching class.

The Voice's coaches seem to be doing something right. All four coaches -- Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton -- scored a Grammy nomination each. Can NBC celebrate their success by getting them less ugly chairs?

Pretty Little Liars was renewed for a third season with 24 episodes. More episodes to drag out who "A" is!

In other parent news, Ernie Hudson will play Cress's dad on Hart of Dixie. I wouldn't be surprised if he found a ghost or two to bust in Bluebell.

Although the upcoming comedy Bent isn't anywhere in NBC's midseason schedule, it's still getting action. Marcia Gay Harden will guest star opposite Jeffrey Tambor as Walt's (Tambor) flirty ex-wife.

Barry Bostwick and Julie Hagerty have joined TBS's upcoming BFF, a comedy from Conan O'Brien's production company. It focuses on a family man who quits his job and returns home, where a "quirky" childhood friend who lives with his parents (Bostwick and Hagerty) is around. Definitely a step up from the Rocky Horror Glee episode for Bostwick.

Liev Schreiber will star in Ray Donovan, a Showtime pilot about a professional "fixer" for the rich and famous that gets called in to solve embarrassing problems and keep names out of the papers. It's not quite the role I'd imagine him in, but Schreiber on TV? I'll take it.

ReelzChannel: Picking up the shows no one else wants. Following ReelzChannel's first foray into original programming with The Kennedys, it picked up True Justice, a drama series about undercover Seattle cops that fight to clean up the streets, starring Steven Seagal. The 13 episodes have already been shot, however, and released in Spain and the U.K. over the summer.

Terriers is streaming on Netflix now! So much for getting anything done today.
