Someone out at America's Next Top Model, but before you celebrate: It's not Tyra.

Kelly Cutrone will replace André Leon Talley next season on The CW reality competition. Kind of an odd choice, especially since there's not one measly court dress in Cutrone's all-black wardrobe. RIP ALT.

Dane Cook is in development with NBC for his own sitcom. Unless Louis C.K. helps with the project, prepare yourself for the next Whitney and a whole lot of frat boy screaming.

After pursuing her lover Desmond Hume around the world on Lost, Sonya Walger (a.k.a. Penny Widmore) is staying closer to home on her new series, USA's Common Law. Walger will star as a psychiatrist that dispenses advice to a pair of odd-couple cops, played by Warren Kole and Michael Ealy. Her expertise in the areas of bad fathers and time travel will particularly come in handy.

Fred Armisen is calling in a few favors from famous friends for the second season of his IFC series Portlandia. Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg Jack McBrayer, Tim Robbins and Amber Tamblyn are just some of the boldfaced names dropping by the hipster capital of the Pacific Northwest. But we won't get really excited until Ron Effin' Swanson pays a visit.

GLAAD reports that Fox has the most LGBT characters on television. Based on last night's episode, Glee holds the record for amount of confused storylines tried to cram in about those characters.

Not afraid to kick a failing series when its down, the Parents Television Council is urging advertisers to stop buying commercial time on NBC's The Playboy Club, citing the show's poor ratings and even poorer moral standards. So far, seven advertisers - including Kraft, UPS and Subway - have taken their advice, although car manufacturer Chrysler says it'll stick with the show for the foreseeable future... which, considering the Nielsen numbers, should be about 2-3 weeks.
