It's almost time for the return of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia  and in honor of that, here's news that Glenn Howerton has agreed to a guest spot on The Mindy Project .  According to E!, "Howerton will take on the recurring role of Cliff Gilbert, a handsome mild-mannered attorney who ends up wooing (Mindy Kaling) on the Fox hit sitcom after they meet-cute in their office building. He will first appear in episode four."  I think I might need to start watching this show.  Ders from Workaholics  is a regular.  Adam Pally from Happy Endings  is about to become a regular.  James Franco is guest starring on the first 2 episodes of next season.  Bill Hader will return as a guest star and they strangely booked Boston Celtics PF Kris Humphries for a cameo.  Color me impressed and count me in.

Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles  returned last night and I tip my cap to Josh Altman.  He has become a "personality" in a TV sense of the word.  Sure he's a jackass and comes across as very unlikeable but he's worth watching no matter how fake his act is and how set up the show is.  Congrats to Josh and Heather Bilyeu on their recent engagement.

Who's watching this??  LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have been handed a reality show that is set to premiere on VH1 this Fall/Winter 2014, with six half-hour episodes.

According to VH1, the show "will bring the truth and make fun of all the gossip" surrounding the controversial couple. Tentatively titled LeAnn & Eddie, the two "look forward to sharing a bit of their world," and poking fun at what it's like to be such a high-profile couple constantly hounded by the paparazzi.

I forgot to mention yesterday that a girl popped out her glass eye on this week's Catfish.  Vulture  posted some of the more interesting Tweets during the episode.

Is it possible for CBS to declare no one the winner of $500,000 and Big Brother  champion this season?  Between the racial slurs and Spencer's reference to pedophilia, this has been the worst cast of characters in the show's 15 seasons.  I'm not rooting for any of them.  Amanda proved to be the latest bigot on the cast.  The AP reports that "[o]n the 24-hour Internet feed of the house, Amanda Zuckerman, who's white, complained about a black cast member putting a headband on her greasy, 'nappy-hair head.' She referred to another black housemate as 'the dark knight' and 'the black mamba,' mocked the accent of a Korean woman and referred to'Puerto Rican showers,' leading to a debate about whether she's racist.

"'I'm just joking,' said Zuckerman, a 28-year-old real estate agent from Boynton Beach, Fla. 'I've had sex with Puerto Rican guys before.'"

Piss poor display of humanity from Zach last night on The Challenge .  Not only did he seemingly play the role of hypochondriac, but he showed the worst display of being a gracious winner in recent memory.  The after show was a pleasant extra half hour to last night's recording.  They should make that a regular occurrence.

Red-blooded men and women from across the country are picking up their guns and competing against one another to prove they’re the best at what they do in this all-new series. But these aren’t top shots going hunting for big game; in fact, they are all incredible tattoo artists. Each week, four of the best tattoo artists from around the country will face off against each other in a competition designed to push them to their artistic and mental limits. Here, they’ll have the chance to tattoo human canvases in rounds that progressively get more difficult. The artist who can sling the best ink to take down the rest of their competition won’t just leave with bragging rights, but they’ll also be walking away with $10,000 in cash. TATTOO TITANS is produced by Original Media with executive producers Sam Berns and Charlie Corwin. Jordan Harman executive produces for CMT.
