Giancarlo Esposito now has a full season to improve his equestrian skills.

NBC has given full season orders to three of its new series, The New Normal, Go On and the big kahuna of the fall so far, Revolution. Sucks to be Animal Practice right about now.

In other renewal news, HBO has unsurprisingly picked up Boardwalk Empire for another year. Champagne for all! Once Prohibition ends, of course.

After going hostless for the first weeks of its new existence, The X Factor will hand emcee duties off to the tag team of Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian. Expect The Voice to counter by replacing Carson Daly with Elizabeth Berkley and Kato Kaelin.

Continuing to prove that TLC is most definitely not The Learning Channel anymore, the network has announced a new reality series tentatively titled Starter Wives, which focuses on the former spouses and girlfriends of boldfaced names. So far, the cast includes women who used to date Floyd Mayweather, 50 Cent and Lamar Odom. Hell, an entire show could be made about George Clooney's cast-offs. Not to give TLC any additional ideas...

While she waits to find out whether Necessary Roughness will be back for another year, Callie Thorne will shoot a guest spot on CBS's Elementary as the former partner of Captain Gregson. Also nabbing a cameo on the modern-day Sherlock series is Lisa Edelstein, who will play the head of a PR firm that's apparently been targeted by a mad bomber. So at least now we know what House and Wilson have been up to after the series finale.
