Fans of Chuck: Your favorite blond secret agent will be playing detective alongside the gang at Miami Metro Homicide.

Chuck's leading lady Yvonne Strahovski will be joining the cast of Dexter for a multi-episode arc on Season 7 of the Showtime series. She'll play Hannah McKay, a woman with -- what else? -- a mysterious past who helps Miami Metro Homicide solve a new case. Hopefully her presence will distract us from the underwhelming previous season and perhaps provide a love interest who isn't Dexter's sort-of sibling.

HGTV's House Hunters has recently come under scrutiny for being "fake". According to a person who appeared on the show, her televised search for real-estate was not as it appeared and that the houses they looked at weren't even for sale -- they were just homes of friends. While we're not totally surprised that a reality show is being called out for being less-than-authentic, we're sort of surprised that it's this one and not The Bachelor.

A show is being for attacked for its lack of diversity... and no, this time it's not Girls. Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes has slammed ABC Family's Bunheads on Twitter for not having a more diverse cast of young dancers. Come to think of it, the minority population of Stars Hollow always seemed pretty small as well...

If you haven't been keeping up with the Kardashians, Oprah has done the work for you. The talk show host turned cable network entrepreneur will be interviewing the family on an episode of Oprah's Next Chapter which is scheduled to air on June 17.

Jerry O'Connell will be taking over the role of Herman Munster on the NBC Munsters reboot, Mockingbird Lane. According to O'Connell, the new series won't be a retelling of the original television series and will be a bit darker than the classic black-and-white show.

Finally, we're happy to report that American Idol winner Phillip Phillips is officially out of the hospital after having kidney surgery in Los Angeles. Phillips is said to be making a great recovery and is already booked for the Idol summer tour along with the rest of the top ten.
