Apparently ruining one classic children's tale isn't enough for The CW.

The same network that's bringing you a remake of the '80s procedural Beauty & The Beast is currently developing a modern-day procedural version of Alice in Wonderland. And we thought nothing could be worse than The Catalina.

TLC is in negotiations with the family at the center of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, who want $10,000 per episode for a second season. As long as June uses some of the money to fumigate her tractor foot, it sounds like a deal.

Florence Henderson, forever known as Carol Brady, will guest star on TV Land's Happily Divorced. Congratulations Happily Divorced, you're relevant for exactly 30 minutes.

James Caan and Esai Morales have joined Magic City for its sophomore season. The show stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan so we have to ask, what exactly is attracting quality actors to this show?

The New Normal is adding a lesbian couple in the seventh episode, to be played by Entourage's Constance Zimmer and Leisha Hailey of The L Word. Of course, since this is Ryan Murphy, expect both to the most stereotypical lesbians possible.

Homeland has cast F. Murray Abraham for its second season in an important, recurring role. Isn't it a little early for 2013 Emmy bait?

HBO ordered a new drama pilot starring James Gandolfini. Criminal Justice is based on a 2008 BBC series and presumably will presumably have a horribly disappointing series finale.
