TV Tidbits: ‘Gossip Girl’ Heats Up, Liza Minnelli Gets ‘Arrested’



Ridiculousness: MTV has renewed Rob Dyrdek’s Ridiculousness for a third season! That’s right, more amateur viral videos for all. [Deadline]

Gossip Girl: Gossip Girl’s final season is now one month away, and we knew they’d go out with a scandalous “bang!” The CW’s latest trailer shows Chuck and Blair getting it on, Serena hiding under a fake identity, and — of course — plenty of threats from Georgina. Who is on a “full-on slut spiral?” Inquiring minds need to know. Dorota, fetch us October, now. [TVLine]

Arrested Development: We couldn’t really read this particular tidbit — it’s basically a brown spot, with points. But from what we can see, it looks like there will be two loose seals in Netflix’s limited revival of Arrested Development. Sorry Jessica Walter — Lucille Two (Liza Minnelli) is back, and Buster is sure to take notice. [TV Guide]

Shonda Rhimes: Grey’s Anatomy producer Shonda Rhimes is about to make a giant leap — from ABC to NBC. Rhimes, her production company, and the Peacock have joined heads for an upcoming FBI drama called Under the Gun. NBC has already made a script commitment for the series, which will focus on a young female agent with a dark past. [Hollywood Reporter]

X Factor: Simon Cowell has already told us that newcomers Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have some teeth, but now we know that the contestants do, too. In Fox’s latest promo, one guy goes a bit too far with Lovato, causing Spears to lash out. [EW]
