Movie over Jay, Dave and Conan -- here comes Vinny.

Jersey Shore's Vinny Guadagnino has landed a new gig as the host of the MTV chat show, The Show With Vinny. Every episode will find a celebrity dropping by his Staten Island abode for a little food and conversation. Maybe Pauly can be his house DJ -- it's not like we're going to be seeing more of The Pauly D Project ever again.

Despite mixed ratings, ABC has picked up Nashville for a full season. Great. Now can we finally have another scene of Connie and Hayden in the same room? They've barely crossed paths since the pilot and it's getting kind of ridiculous.

The trainwreck that's shaping up to be Season 2 of Smash keeps on its runaway course with the announcement that Liza Minnelli will be playing herself and belting a new Marc Shaiman/Scott Whitman in a future episode. We can only hope that her appearance here can measure up to her walk-on role in Sex and the City 2.

Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker have become the latest cast members to join Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot as scientist Gemma Simmons and gadget guru Leo Fitz respectively. Amy Acker's still waiting for a phone call, Joss.

House co-showrunner Katie Jacobs is developing a new drama series for NBC based on the book I Am Victor, about a divorce attorney with his own personal problems. Like a Vicodin addiction, perhaps?

British hunk Rob Kazinsky will join Season 6 of HBO's True Blood as a new boyfriend for Sookie. Poor girl -- so many hot undead guys to sleep with, so little time.
