Law & Order: SVU: There's still no deal in place for Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni to return next season, but I hear talks are "moving in the right direction."
Greek: Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) has been cast as Ashleigh's father, Brian Howard, in a season 3 episode. Pops arrives on campus to spend Father-Daughter Weekend at the ZBZ sorority with Ash.
Gilmore Girls: Nope, the show isn't returning. And I don't have an update on a possible movie. I do, however, have good news for fans of Gilmore guy Matt Czuchry. The pilot for his new CBS legal drama, The Good Wife, doesn't suck. Like, at all. (Watch a clip here.)
Blind item: The coolest casting coup in recent memory was supposed to be finalized this week. Now I'm hearing it's not happening at all. The only hint I can give you is that it involves an actress we adore and a show we're obsessed with. And no, this is not a follow-up to my Summer Glau-Dollhouse story.
