Get ready to see at least one new face on CBS' legal drama The Good Wife.

Maura Tierney will join the cast of The Good Wife next season. She will portray a self-made billionaire who is a big supporter of Peter's campaign.

If you thought that the only thing Smash was lacking was another former American Idol contestant, then you're in luck -- Jennifer Hudson will be joining Season 2 as a Tony Award-winning Broadway actress who will impact the lives of Broadway hopefuls Karen and Ivy. If this means we're going to have to relive the whole "who-gets-to-play-Marilyn-Monroe" drama again, we'd rather them just give the role to Michelle Williams and call it a day.

Though the details have been few and far between, American Horror Story creators have recently revealed a bit more about the plot of the highly-anticipated Season 2, which will follow a completely different storyline than Season 1. The new season will be set in the '60s on the East Coast, as opposed to the modern-day Los Angeles setting of Season 1. Returning cast member Jessica Lange will portray a nun who is in charge of a mental hospital, while Adam Levine (yes, THE Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and chair-spinning reality show fame) will be portraying a character known only as one of "The Lovers".

In news that should surprise no one, Roseanne Barr will join the ranks of celebrities like Donald Trump, Joan Rivers and Charlie Sheen when she is "roasted" by Comedy Central. The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne will air on August 12 at 10 PM.

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek suffered a mild heart attack last week. He is expected to make a full recovery and will be back on the show when it begins taping in July.
