This is the series that never ends...

Remember how relieved we all were when NBC passed on the Dwight Schrute The Farm spin-off? Looks like we spoke too soon... kind of. A tweaked version of the pilot will air as an upcoming Office episode.

Oh, and speaking of Dunder Mifflin-Sabre or whatever company that show even is anymore, Jon Favreau will direct an episode.

Fox has ordered Bob's New Heart Show (say it out loud if it doesn't sound familiar), a single-camera sitcom from Conan O'Brien's production company sitcom about a young hotshot doctor who turns his life around after getting a heart transplant. Based on the track record of O'Brien and pilot writer Ben Wexler, don't expect this one to be around too long.

Ty Pennington is getting a new monthly half-hour series on HLN called American Journey, where he'll tell stories about inspiring Americans. Also, it's sponsored by Chevrolet, which sounds about right.

Justin Bieber might host Saturday Night Live, in an episode that I will most certainly never, ever watch.
