Summer Glau Kristin Chenoweth is taking a 150 mile trip from small-town Lima, Ohio, to the state’s pride and joy: Cleveland.

Chenoweth’s character will flee to the Cleve after breaking up with her “doctor to the stars” boyfriend, and will seek comfort in the company of her old pals. Hot in Cleveland airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TVLand. Chenoweth’s new series, G.C.B., premieres Sunday, Mar. 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. –TVGuide.

Firefly star Summer Glau

is well-versed in the world of science-fiction and fantasy television…and we love her for that. But she’s not opposed to trying out something a little more grounded in a reality other than that of the Serenity. Glau will make a guest appearance on Grey’s Anatomy. No word on what character Glau will play just yet. The news comes straight from the Twitter account of Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes. Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. –Shonda Rhimes

Julian Assange’s dark, prophetic mind will come again to our services: the founder of WikiLeaks has announced that he will be hosting a new talk show that is promised to be, as we would expect, fueled by controversy. The theme of Assange’s new series will be ““the world tomorrow,” manifested through his interviews with various “key political players, thinkers and revolutionaries” on their practices and ideologies, which Assange will work to examine and challenge. Production and distribution details about the show are still yet to be determined; in fact, Assange’s schedule might be impaired by his legal troubles in Sweden. However, WikiLeaks announces that the program will begin airing mid-March. –WikiLeaks via Washington Post
