Oprah and Lance re-enact the Ricky Gervais classic, The Invention of Lying

4.3 million viewers tuned in to watch a certain cyclist confess his sins to Mama Oprah last night, giving the OWN Network some of its highest ratings ever. (3.2 million watched the initial broadcast, while another 1.1 million caught the repeat.) Just wait until she gets the inevitable Manti Te'o confessional.

Speaking of the Manti "Catfish" Te'o, it appears that the guy at the center of this epic hoax, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo auditioned for the fourth season of The Voice. It's unclear yet what song he sang, but we're guessing it was "Lyin' Eyes."

Stephen Colbert won't be representing South Carolina in the U.S. House of Representin' (hat tip to Mike Judge) anytime soon, but his sister just might. Elizabeth Colbert-Busch has announced that she'll be running in the state's special election to fill the seat vacated by Tim Scott. Can you still get the Colbert Bump if you're related to the guy?

24 veteran Leslie Hope will join NBC's Revolution as President Foster, the commander-in-chief of the Georgia Federation. In other casting news, Arrow's Jessica De Gouw will co-star on NBC's supernatural fall drama, Dracula, opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the titular bloodsucker; and Geena Davis will headline the TNT pilot Green, as a seasoned pirate bounty hunter.

The plot thickens over on Homeland. Showtime has announced that Diego Klattenhoff, who plays Brody's friend and Jessica's stud muffin, Mike, will not be a series regular on the show's third season. We're betting this is all Dana's fault; her whiny B.S. just drives everyone away.
