The Good Wife gets yet another addition to Season 4, a model heads to the supermarket and Miley Cyrus is back on TV.

Another former Soprano star joins the cast of The Good Wife. Anabella Sciorra will guest star on Season 4 of the show as a lawyer who has an uncanny resemblance to Alicia. Hopefully Sciorra's new character will be a bit more mentally stable than the ball of crazy she played on The Sopranos or else this stint may be a cut short.

Miley Cyrus and her new hairdo are returning to television. (Uh, yay?). The actress will guest star on an episode of Two And A Half Men as "half man" Jake's love interest. Phew -- we were worried that she'd have to romance Ashton Kutcher's character instead.

In other guest star news, it's been a big year for Shiri Appleby. The Roswell actress -- who will join Season 2 of Girls in the fall -- will appear on NBC's new series Chicago Fire as Lauren German's very married and very pregnant ex-girlfriend. Of course, since the show is about one of the busiest firefighting units in the city, we're sure that these people won't have time to deal with such petty drama...oh wait...

Proving that networks are ready to make absolutely everything a television series, NBC has landed a new period drama about Cleopatra. The television series will be produced by Di Bonaventure Films and penned by Here on Earth scribe Michael Seitzman.

Lifetime has picked up a new reality competition entitled Supermarket Superstars. Hosted by model/actress Stacy Keibler -- better known for being George Clooney's girlfriend and now this, I guess -- the competition find food product inventors pitching their ideas to industry experts who will then mentor the creators on how to improve their product. The winner of each episode will receive an investment in their product and a chance to win top prize, a nationwide launch of their product. This is very exciting news for anyone who has ever wanted to eat an Oreo Flavored Cheeto or a Cool Ranch Flavored Spaghetti Hot Pocket.

In news that makes my once-tween heart weep, Nickelodeon announced that it has cancelled the series Victorious. A spin-off of Victorious and that other Nickelodeon favorite iCarly called Sam & Cat was picked up by the network.
