Law & Order: SVU: In tomorrow’s season finale, Olivia seduces one character and bitch slaps another. Care to guess which one is Stabler? BTW, there’s still no deal in place for Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni to return next season, but I hear talks are “moving in the right direction.”
Greek: Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) has been cast as Ashleigh’s father, Brian Howard, in a season 3 episode. Pops arrives on campus to spend Father-Daughter Weekend at the ZBZ sorority with Ash.
Gilmore Girls: Nope, the show isn’t returning. And I don’t have an update on a possible movie. I do, however, have good news for fans of Gilmore guy Matt Czuchry. The pilot for his new CBS legal drama, The Good Wife, doesn’t suck. Like, at all. (Watch a clip here.)

Smurf Village my office later this week to discuss some pressing Mother issues as well as his stint hosting this Sunday’s Tony Awards. Send your Qs to firstname.lastname@example.org sooner rather than later.
Blind item: The coolest casting coup in recent memory was supposed to be finalized this week. Now I’m hearing it’s not happening at all.
