Our favorite ballerinas are coming back to primetime.

The CW has renewed Breaking Pointe for another season of drama. They've also renewed Oh Sit!, which I still say would be better with celebrities.

While I'm at it, TNT also gave another season to Major Crimes, much to the delight of Closer-spinoff fans everywhere.

Project Runway's second All Star season will feature a bunch of fantastic (horribly or genuinely) faces, included Wendy Pepper, Andrae Gonzalo, Kayne Gillaspie, Althea Harper, Uli Herzner and the evil Joshua McKinley.

Olivia Munn will guest star on New Girl as a love interest for Nick, hopefully somehow making fun of The Newsroom in the process. Over at Go On, expect a visit from Lauren Graham, because it's not like Sarah Braverman is too busy at her day job or anything.

In probably less exciting casting news: This Orange is the New Black show Netflix is scrapping together just nabbed Star Trek: Voyager's alumna Kate Mulgrew, Henry Ian Cusick will be on The Mentalist (which, for the record, is not Penny's boat) and Seth Gilliam from The Wire fame landed a big role on a AMC pilot.

TV Land has sent out a press release about ordered the pilot for a Kirstie Alley vehicle called Giant Baby, which is penned by Ugly Betty's Marco Pennette and stars Alley as a Broadway diva who is contracted by the son she gave up for adoption. Good luck with that.

There might be a Scrubs musical in the works, or something? Why?

And finally, our thoughts are with the family and friends of Sons of Anarchy's Johnny Lewis after his death, as well as to the loved ones of his 81-year-old landlord who he allegedly killed.
