Slow day for TV news today -- I was kind of hoping Snooki's baby would be born five months early for entertainment purposes.

Fox's new series Touch just scored Maria Bello for a multi-episode arc this season with possibilities to become a regular if the show gets picked up for a second season. Bello plays a mother whose daughter has the same gift as Jake.

Alyssa Milano snagged a lead in ABC's drama soap Mistresses (not to be confused with Devious Maids). The show centers on four women, chronicling their Desperate Housewives-esq romantic lives. Milano plays a rich lawyer and owner of her own firm. I guess she's the boss now -- sorry, Tony. Amanda Walsh also picking up a pilot role in Fox's comedy Rebounding.

Dakota Johnson will play the lead in Fox's comedy pilot Ned Fox Is My Manny. Johnson will play an uptight single mother who lets her brother move in to help raise her daughter. On a side note, Nat Faxon is playing the brother -- I'm sold, if only for the eye candy. (On a further side note, don't hate on my Nat Faxon attraction!)

Saturday Night Live alumnus Jenny Slate will play a nerd in CBS' comedy pilot Super Fun Night. The plot revolves around four friends determined to have a "super fun night" every Friday night. Rebecca Black and Katy Perry, you stay out of this one, you hear me?!

Hugh Dancy is set to star in NBC's new thriller based on characters from the novel Red Dragon. Dancy will play Hannibal Lecter's prodigy. Prince Charmont playing a cannibal? How dark. How scandalous.
