-30 Rock will be throwing in a Saturday Night Live-esque twist this fall. On October 14, actors from the NBC comedy will do two live primetime tapings—one for each coast.
-Mary Hart has announced that she will leave Entertainment Tonight after completing her 30th year with the program. It’s believed Lara Spencer, host of The Insider, will eventually take over her spot.
-You knew she couldn’t keep away for long. Former talk show host Rosie O’Donnell will once again return to daytime with a new show next year. The program will air on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN.
-Can’t think of a better show title for Cougar Town? Well, neither can the producers. Although the comedy is considered to be an ensemble program, the ABC series will be keeping its name.
-Actor Jeff Goldblum has decided to leave Law & Order: Criminal Intent after two years with the program. “Uncertainty” about the show’s future reportedly played a part in his decision.
Here’s a quick look at some of the casting announcements made recently:
The Young and the Restless: Is CBS prepared for a visit from The Hoff? Later this June, David Hasselhoff will make a return to the show that helped launch his career. David will reprise the role of Dr. William “Snapper” Foster, Jr., his character on the soap from 1975 to 1982. “Being asked to come back to appear in several episodes gives me a chance to say thanks,” Hasselhoff said. “I just hope I can remember all those lines.”

After leaving his mark on two different Law & Order franchises, Chris Noth has decided to leave the Dick Wolf family once again.
Noth, who has been playing Det. Mike Logan on Law & Order: Criminal Intent for three years, originated the character when the first series unfolded on NBC back in 1990. (He stuck around that time through 1995.)
When the USA Network program returns for its 8th season (it’s still in the middle of its seventh), Jurassic Park‘s Jeff Goldblum will be the new face sharing screen time with Vincent D’Onofrio.
In a statement, USA’s executive vice-president of original programming said, “Jeff is one of the most exciting actors around and is a perfect addition to the Law & Order: Criminal Intent ensemble. We are very excited to see what new moves he will bring to the Major Case Squad.” Well, I hope he brings a lot - especially since he’ll reportedly be getting about $250,000 per episode.
There’s been no word as to how or when Noth will be making his exit.
