Today's TWoP News: Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Today's news is dedicated to Les Moonves's loose lips.

The CBS boss has told investors that the upcoming season of Dexter will be the show's last. If Season 8 is anywhere near as good as Season 7, then I think I'll miss the ol' gang.

For you nostalgia lovers out there, The Office had their final table read yesterday, in which Pam presumably runs off with Boom Guy Brian.

Jon Stewart will take a 12-week hiatus from The Daily Show to make his feature directorial debut this summer. On the bright side, John Oliver will fill in for him, and it's not like Stewart is trying to be an actor, or anything.

After the news of its Season 4 renewal, Raising Hope's Greg Garcia is leaving (seems there's a deal at CBS TV Studios forcing him to exit) and will be replaced by executive producer Mike Mariano.

In casting news, Sayid is going back to the island ABC in a drama pilot; Carlos Solis is moving to a NBC comedy; Orson Hodge just joined NBC's JJ Abrams drama pilot (also, am I the only person in 2013 still calling Kyle MacLachlan by his Desperate Housewives character name?) while his Portlandia neighbor Chloe Sevigny will be on The Mindy Project; James Cromwell will co-star in the ABC drama pilot Betrayal; and Brody Jenner is joining his own family in a show he's already occasionally on.

And to finally answer your question: Yes, Aaron Sorkin will probably exploit the Sandy Hook tragedy on an upcoming Newsroom episode.
