Vegas Goes All In on New Night: CBS announced on Thursday that it will keep the Theo James-led cop drama Golden Boy on Tuesday nights — in the 10 PM ET/PT slot previously belonging to Vegas— instead of moving it to Fridays at 9 PM ET/PT as planned. That means Vegas will air at 9 on Fridays beginning April 5, while a new Golden Boy episode will air this Friday as scheduled, following Undercover Boss.

Joy Behar Leaving The View: After 16 and a half years on The View, Joy Behar is leaving ABC's daytime talk show. “Joy Behar has been instrumental in the success of The View from the very beginning. We wish her all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season,” ABC said in a statement. Behar said she felt 16.5 years on The View were enough. “It seemed like the right time,” she said. “You reach a point when you say to yourself, ‘Do I want to keep doing this?’ There are other things on my plate I want to do — I’ve been writing a play, I’ve been neglecting my standup.” [Deadline]

House Vet Returns to TV: House alum Omar Epps just landed a role in ABC’s drama pilot The Returned. Based on Jason Mott’s novel, the potential series is about how the lives of the people of Arcadia are forever changed when their deceased loved ones return. Epps’ Immigration Agent Martin Bellamy is in town to figure out the identity of the mysterious kid claiming to be the long-dead child of a couple.

New Actress Selected: British actress Sarah Winter (who next appears in a U.K. TV movie about Doctor Who's origins) is set to co-star in The CW's retooled pilot The Selection. Set 300 years in the future, it is an epic romance centering on a working-class young woman, America Singer (Israeli actress Yael Grobglas), chosen by lottery to participate in a competition with 25 other women for Prince Maxon's (Michael Malarkey) hand to become the nation's next queen. Winter will play Ashley Brovillette, a naive young woman who is overjoyed to be chosen as one of the contestants for The Selection competition. [THR]

Interested Mother Joins The HundredPaige Turco, who recurs on CBS' Person of Interest, has been cast in The CW's drama pilot The Hundred. Based on the forthcoming Hundred books by Kass Morgan, the drama takes place 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization. A spaceship housing the lone human survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to investigate the possibility of re-colonizing the planet. Turco will play Abby, mother to Clarke (Eliza Taylor), who is the authoritative chief medical officer of The Ark space station. She navigates the political spectrum with tact -- especially after her husband was put to death as a traitor for revealing the truth about The Ark's limited life-expectancy. [THR]
