If there is a seventh season of Mad Men -- which there most likely will be, don't worry -- it won't just be Don smoldering sitting in his office alone.

January Jones, Elisabeth Moss and Vincent Kartheiser have all made deals keeping them on the show through a seventh season, while Christina Hendricks' contract is still being negotiated. Two seasons should leave plently of time to see Pete Campbell be punched right in the bitchface again. (RIP Lane).

Multiple TV networks want to hire Michael Phelps as a sports announcer since he revealed that the London Olympics will be his last. Because his interviews and Saturday Night Live hosting gig showed how great he is at speaking on television?

La Toya Jackson is getting her own reality show on the OWN network, to be called Life With La Toya. Now the producers just need to come up with a way to let viewers know what kinds of emotions she's trying to express when her face won't let her.

The infamous Alexa Chung will make a cameo on the upcoming sixth season of Gossip Girl as herself, which should be appreciated by the show's young, fashion-loving viewers. Twilight's Jackson Rathbone will appear on an episode of White Collar. He'll be opposite series regular and Magic Mike star Matt Bomer, which should please 50 Shades of Grey-reading middle-aged women everywhere.

In more casting news, former Witness tyke Lukas Haas will re-join his old 24 co-star Kiefer Sutherland as a regular on the second season of Touch. Maybe Elisha Cuthbert could have joined the mini-reunion if she wasn't too busy being snubbed by the Emmys. Max Greenfield may have received his well-earned Emmy nomination for Schmidt, but he'll have some romantic competition next season on New Girl when Nelson Franklin of Traffic Light appears as Cece's new boyfriend.
