It's A Guest-Star Parade on New Girl!: What happens when Olivia Munn, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Rob Reiner get guest-star arcs on a TV show? Well, for New Girl fans, it's just one piece of an already packed second season of the FOX comedy darling. According to showrunner Liz Meriwether, this new batch of guest stars made quite a mark. Having Reiner on set for the week was a challenge: "I was trying to play it cool, but every time I was around him, I was shaking a little bit! The things that he’s done are so unbelievable," said Meriwether. "I got to yell at Jamie Lee Curtis," explained actress Hannah Simone. And Munn? Well she got hit in the face during a stripper fight. Natch. "We actually just shot this huge stripper fight last night and she got hit in the face!" quipped Meriwether. Just another day with...who's that girl? Oh right, it's Jess. [Hollywood Reporter]
The Voice Changes the Rules: The folks at The Voice are switching things up for Season 3! Much like on their rival X Factor, this season, not every judge needs to have a contestant in the Final Four. Beginning on Nov. 13, the bottom two will be sent home regardless of what team they're on: which is great for viewers and teams with more than one powerhouse, but bad for coaches with subpar contestants, and those hangers-on who just want one more week.

Rebecca Romijn Pilots at TNT: Rebecca Romjin is set to play Michelle Maxwell, one-half of the titled team, King and Maxwell at TNT. Her character is reportedly a former secret services agent charged with investigating politically sensitive cases. Her partner, Sean King, will also apparently provide some sort of romantic element to the relationship. Ooh! Saucy! And, it seems there's a bit of a Homeland element to the whole thing, as Maxwell is seen as a very accomplished investigator that was forced out of the Secret Service and is determined to redeem herself. Paging Carrie Matheson! [EW]
Ethan Embry Enchanted by Once Upon: Another day, another guest star for Once Upon a Time. This time, it's Ethan Embry who has snagged a recurring role, as an out-of-town visitor to Storybrooke. Little else is known about his role, but we're sure it will be simply magical. [TVLine]
Dan Harmon Goes Adult Swimming: Looks like the Community creator will be without a show no longer! Adult Swim confirmed its picked up Rick & Morty, a new animated series slated for release in early 2014. Hopefully there's only one timeline for this show. [Dave Itzkoff]
Josh Lyman Bradley Whitford Marries a Trophy Wife: Excitement abounds for The West Wing fans, as one its most-beloved stars, Bradley Whitford has continued a bit of a career resurgence. The Emmy-winning actor has signed on to star opposite Malin Akerman in Trophy Wife, a single-camera comedy project about a former party girl (Akerman) who falls in love with a man (Whitford) with three manipulative kids and two judgmental ex-wives.

It's the biggest night in television. But will it be the most surprising one? Turns out, not quite. Though there were a few shockers during Sunday's 64th annual Emmy Awards — for instance, Homeland's Damian Lewis wins over Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston — ABC's Modern Family was, per usual, the belle of the ball with four Emmys, including Outstanding Comedy series. Other big winners of the evening? Showtime's Homeland — which also picked up four wins, including Outstanding Drama — HBO's Game Change — which won four awards, including Best Miniseries or Movie — and Louis C.K., who won Outstanding Writing for his FX darling Louie and Outstanding Writing in a Variety, Music, or Comedy Special for Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater.

In the romantic comedy What’s Your Number? Anna Faris plays Ally Darling a fun-loving 30-something who learns via a magazine article that a woman’s chances of marrying become infinitesimal if she’s slept with more than 20 men – a number which just so happens to be Ally’s exact tally. Apparently the highly suggestible sort she accepts the magazine’s somewhat dubious findings at face value. Loath to embrace a spinster future she gives up sex and concocts a scheme to revisit each of her past lovers to see if any of them might actually be The One enlisting the aid of Colin (Chris Evans) a crass but amiable ladies’ man from across the hall who dabbles in detective work to track them down.
The immutable laws of rom-com dynamics dictate what happens next. One by one Ally pursues each of her exes to see if any of her old flames might be worth reigniting even as it becomes increasingly obvious that she and Colin are meant for each other. Ally’s quixotic endeavor lands her in one awkward and humiliating situation after another. True love eludes her; laughter eludes us. Faris is one of the most skilled comedic actresses in Hollywood today but even her formidable talents can’t do much with the hackneyed scenarios proffered by Gabrielle Allan and Jennifer Crittenden’s middling script.
Faris and Evans make a pleasing pair and their chemistry is one of the few aspects of What’s Your Number? that doesn’t feel forced. It’s what keeps it afloat in between each unfunny gag. Sure Ally and Colin’s eventual union is telegraphed from the opening frames but that isn’t necessarily a problem. What is a problem is the story’s slavish adherence to formula which renders not just the outcome but also the preceding plot points achingly predictable.
What’s Your Number?’s R rating and saucy subject matter portend raunch but in truth the film’s humor is actually quite tame save for a handful of filthy lines. For all its flaws the script is not without wit. There just isn’t nearly enough of it.
Australian photographer Jamie Fawcett has been ordered to appear in court next month over allegations he planted a bug outside Nicole Kidman's home more than a year ago.
Fawcett was first charged with possessing a listening device outside Kidman's home in the waterfront Sydney suburb of Darling Point in January 2005.
Fawcett told the Sydney Daily Telegraph newspaper that he hoped the whole affair would "die a slow death" and claimed that he was being unfairly targeted by police. He adds, "I just think in this instance the police have got a hard-on for me."
Police have continued to investigate the high-profile case and issued the summons on Thursday, after a legal battle to obtain Fawcett's DNA failed.
Authorities had hoped to compare Fawcett's DNA to DNA found on a listening device that was discovered in a garden outside Kidman's home during the star's visit to Australia early last year.
Two sets of DNA were discovered on the evidence, which a security guard found, but Fawcett appealed against the order to submit a DNA sample to the Supreme Court and won.
An apprehended violence order was placed on Fawcett after the Oscar winning actress claimed he went too far in pursuing pictures of her and made her fearful of leaving her home.
An out-of-court deal was reached, allowing Fawcett to carry out his work, which he did during Nicole Kidman's wedding to country star Keith Urban in June.
Fawcett is expected to appear in Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney on Nov. 22.
