American Horror Story scores another returning champion.

Looks like Zachary Quinto will join Jessica Lange in returning to the FX series American Horror Story for Season 2. Remember, both actors will be playing completely new characters in a completely new setting, this time an East Coast institution rather than a Hollywood haunted home.

The BBC is working on a Saturday afternoon talk show with a Muppet-like host. The network is reportedly collaborating with The Jim Henson Company on the project, which is set to debut in 2013. Color us green with excitement... if it ever makes it across the pond, that is.

The River star Paul Blackthorne will appear in The CW's Arrow pilot as Detective Quentin Lance, who clashes with the new incarnation of DC Comics' Emerald Archer.

The Bones spin-off The Finder will finish its freshman season on Fridays, since Touch is taking over its Thursday timeslot. In case there's anyone out there who remembered this series even existed.

And lastly, here's some sad comedy to mark the end of a boring news day: 16 and Pregnant star Whitney Purvis was arrested in Georgia yesterday for shoplifting a $16 pregnancy test. You cannot make this stuff up. I guess 16 and pregnant turns into 20 and incarcerated.
