"Celebrity Apprentice  is still weeks away from announcing its latest contestants, but TMZ spies have come through again ... with a list of celebs who will be duking it out this season.  TMZ has learned Geraldo Rivera and former Cosby Show star Keshia Knight Pulliam are among the cast members for the upcoming season. In addition, our spies say two Real Housewives -- Brandi Glanville from Bev Hills and Kenya Moore from Atlanta -- will also be doing the show.
Kate Gosselin's name has been rumored for a while now ... and TMZ can confirm she'll be trying to get on Donald Trump's good side as well."

This comes on the heels of news that former NFL WR Terrell Owens will be a contestant as well.  I will confirm this as he told me late last week that he's leaving Los Angeles tomorrow and will not be returning until April 26 or 27.  You do the math. 

I have found The Walking Dead to be quite boring and slow this season and last night's painful episode didn't do anything to help its cause, in my opinion.  If you have not yet watched, please skip ahead.  If you have, you know I'm referring to Carol and Tyrese's decision on how to rid themselves of the children that they had inherited.  Here's a more detailed recap from The Hollywood Reporter:

"Carol and Tyreese, exhausted from trying to survive on the road with three young girls, stumble on a cabin that's fully stocked, with gas and running water, and seek salvation there while debating the merits of Terminus. What they find, however, is that Lizzie was the one feeding rats to the walkers at the prison and the youngster still doesn't understand that walkers are deadly, and neither of them want to kill anyone, including the undead.

"After Carol and Tyreese briefly leave the girls, they come back to find that Lizzie has killed her kid sister, Mika, but insists that she'll "come back" because she 'didn't hurt her brain.' Lizzie, with her hands covered in blood, holds Carol and Tyreese at gunpoint with baby Judith nearby and insists that they wait to see Mika return in order to truly understand that the walkers are not dangerous. Worse: Lizzie reveals that Judith can change, too, and she was just about to kill her as well.

"It's at that moment that Carol and Tyreese realize that Lizzie is incapable of taking care of herself in this world and is now a threat to everyone else. After briefly debating alternatives, they come to the same conclusion: Lizzie must be killed. When Carol takes Lizzie for a walk, Lizzie apologizes -- not for killing her sister but for holding them at gunpoint. With tears streaming down Carol's face, she shoots Lizzie in the back of the head."

Here's the interview THR did with Melissa McBride (Carol) about last night's shocker.

Sundance debuts it's new show Loredena, Esq. tonight.  The show is described by the net as one that "follows the high-stakes world of Loredana Nesci, a former Los Angeles police officer turned criminal defense attorney. She is on a relentless quest to find people to save and problems to solve through her thriving law practice. Each episode features Loredana applying her unconventional and potent passion for discovering the truth while trying to build a successful case for clients who sorely need her help."  Here's the trailer:

Comedy Central has picked up a new show from comedian Hannibal Burress, called Unemployable, for 10 episodes.  Unemployable is described as a reality comedy series that follows Buress trying out a different job each week, with standup from him mixed in. Comedy Central ordered a pilot of the show back in May. There's no word yet on when the series will premiere.

Wayne Knight (Newman) is NOT dead.

More casting news from upcoming spinoff How I Met Your Dad (per Vulture): "Masters of Sex's Nick D'Agosto will play Frank, the dorky IT guy who falls for Sally, but D'Agosto is still expected to recur on MoS, thank God. Workaholics' Anders Holm (also recently of The Mindy Project) will play Sally's ex-husband, and Andrew Santino has been cast as Sally's overachieving lawyer brother, though that's in second position to his role as the red-headed rapist on Mixology. They join the previously cast Gerwig and Smash's Krysta Rodriguez, who plays Sally's party-hard BFF.  I'm not sure how I feel about Ders joining this cast.  He was great on The Mindy Project so hopefully it translates.

I'll never say no to some Impractical Jokers video.

EW sat down with Orphan Black's Jordan Galvis.

American Pie's Finch has signed on for CBS' new series Scorpion.
