'2 Broke Girls' meet one rich girl: Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian has been a staple of the reality-show circuit for almost a decade now, but she’s adding another scripted credit to her resume—this time on a Michael Patrick King comedy.

The star tweeted that she will appear in an episode of CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, which is set to air on Monday, Oct. 27. Kardashian did not mention whether she will be playing herself or a new character on the show. Her most recent forays into comedy, both on How I Met Your Mother and a live episode of 30 Rock, however, indicate it will more likely be the former. Kardashian’s other scripted work includes a four-episode arc on Drop Dead Diva and guest spots on CSI: NY and American Dad.

Whoever she ends up playing, one has to hope Kardashian will be seen playing Kim Kardashian: Hollywood on her phone during the episode.

Carla Gugino joins HBO's 'The Brink'

Carla Gugino will play a high-powered D.C. lawyer and wife to Tim Robbins’ Secretary of State character in a multi-episode arc on HBO’s The Brink. EW confirmed the news, as first reported by Deadline.

The dark half-hour comedy from Ocean’s Eleven producer Jerry Weintraub focuses on three men in the midst of a geopolitical crisis: the Secretary of State (Robbins), a Foreign Service officer (Jack Black) and a Navy fighter pilot (Pablo Schreiber). They must team up to try to prevent World War III. Thor‘s Jamie Alexander also stars.

The Brink does not have a scheduled premiere date yet, but Gugino can also be seen on Fox’s Wayward Pines, from M. Night Shyamalan, which will air in 2015 as a mid-season replacement.

'East Los High' builds on Hulu's success among Hispanic audiences

You can’t set your DVR for East Los High, one of the most popular shows among Hispanic youth. But you can stream the show online on your laptop or tablet (or even TV, if you insist)—now in its second season on Hulu—as a nod to not only the changing nature of television, but as a telling insight on how a streaming content company has managed to build a sizeable audience among one of television’s most coveted demographics: Latino 20-somethings.

Spanish 'Breaking Bad' remake 'Metastasis' vs. the original: What's new? PHOTOS

The bad news is you’re suffering from Breaking Bad withdrawal. The good news? Fans of the hit AMC show — which wrapped up its five-season run in a gripping finale last fall — can look forward to an upcoming Spanish language remake that has plenty in common with Vince Gilligan’s Emmy-winning drama.

Or will it? Sure, true to the original, Walter Blanco — his last name means “white” — is a timid chemistry teacher who transforms into a meth-dealing mastermind after he’s diagnosed with lung cancer. But there are also a few notable differences too, which make Metástasis a blend of high-stakes telenovela drama and American cable TV storytelling. (Never fear: Gilligan consulted on the Colombian remake.) Here are a few of the most striking differences — with the promise of a lot more to come when the show premieres in July in the United States on Univision-owned network UniMás.

Fox picks up Diablo Cody, Josh Schwartz teen drama pilot

It’s a teen dream match-up.

Fox has purchased a one-hour pilot for the teen drama Prodigy, a collaboration between Juno scribe Diablo Cody and O.C. creator Josh Schwartz. Fake Empire Productions, which Schwartz founded in 2010 with his Gossip Girl co-creator Stephanie Savage, is leading the development of the show.

Prodigy focuses on a 16-year-old home schooled genius who decides to take a shot at the high school experience before heading to college. It works and then backfires when she takes up with a wild crowd. Cody, who picked up an Oscar for her original screenplay Juno, will write the show.

The release did not specify a timeline for the pilot.

Simon Cowell on low 'X Factor' ratings: 'If it's good, the ratings will go up'

For Simon Cowell, the ratings game is simple. “If it’s good, the ratings will go up. If it’s terrible they’ll go down,” the reality mogul told EW.

The X Factor’s third season got off to a rocky start, hitting a new ratings low with its season premiere and continuing to disappoint. Cowell isn’t worried, though, and sees the dip as part of the cycle that all shows must endure. “You’ve just got to do what we’ve always done over the year for these shows,” he said. “You have your high moments, you have your dips, and you roll your sleeves up and do something better than everyone else is doing.” That high moment, he hopes, could be the new Four Chair Challenge, airing Wednesday on Fox.

EP talks 'Law & Order: SVU' Trayvon Martin episode -- EXCLUSIVE

Law & Order: SVU never shies away from keeping up with the cultural zeitgeist. Executive Producer Warren Leight has said that he looks to the headlines of the day to figure out exactly what issues they should be dealing with on the procedural, which is currently in production filming its 15th season.

Wednesday, pictures from the SVU set emerged on BuzzFeed and speculation mounted about whether or not the images might suggest that the show was taking on the controversial George Zimmerman trial so soon. In fact, the SVU writers have taken things one step further and combined two of the year’s biggest headlines: The trial of Zimmerman over the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin and the Paula Deen scandal.

'The Walking Dead': Watch an exclusive deleted scene with Lori as a zombie!

Okay, let’s be honest: Rick Grimes went a little nuts last season on The Walking Dead after his wife Lori died. He started hearing things and then seeing things — things that weren’t actually there. But, as a new exclusive deleted scene from the upcoming Walking Dead season 3 DVD/Blu-ray set shows, it could have been even worse. Much worse.

Remember back in episode 10 (“Home”) when Rick had himself a tender moment with a vision of his former wife in a white dress out on a bridge past the prison yard? Well, a new deleted scene shows how the scene was originally shot — and it seems that tender moment actually turned quite terrifying. After making out for a bit — because who doesn’t love making out with hallucinations from time to time — Rick pulls back to see that his beautiful wife is now a significantly less kissable zombie version of his beautiful wife. That’s right, Sarah Wayne Callies got zombified! READ FULL STORY

Romance, careers, and moving on at 'Downton Abbey': 10 things we learned about season four

It’s 1922 and all is not well at Downton Abbey. But how could it be? Still reeling from the loss of a few significant characters, season four picks up months after that fateful car wreck to find a house in mourning.

After airing a season four promo and some character specific clips, executive producer Gareth Neame took the stage at TCA alongside Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley), Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith Crawley), Phyllis Logan (Mrs. Hughes), Joanne Froggatt (Anna), and Sophie McShera (Daisy) to tease season four and beyond. The notoriously tight-lipped cast didn’t give too much away, but we were able to glean a few key takeaways about what is in store for both the upstairs and downstairs crew in this time of transition.

ABC Family cancels 'Bunheads' after one season

Oh Bunheads, we’ll miss you so.

Monday, ABC Family announced that it would not bring back Amy Sherman-Palladino’s beloved hour-long show for a second season. A critical and cultish fan favorite, the whimsical show about a displaced Vegas showgirl and the quirky, idyllic ballet studio in Paradise, California that becomes her home never found a following significant enough to justify keeping it on the air.

Bunheads is a wonderful series that we are very proud to have aired,” said a ABC Family spokesperson. “The series had amazing storytelling, the most talented cast and a passionate and loyal fan base. Recognizing all of this, we took extra time to try and find ways to bring the series back for another season, but in the end it simply wasn’t possible.  We wish the cast and crew the best in their future endeavors.”
