KYLE XY's Matt Dallas Heads to ABC Family's BABY DADDY
Dallas will reunite with his former KYLE XY co-star Bilodeau and play the hardworking Fitch Douglas, the typical perfect guy who's rugged but sensitive, dedicated but laid back and sets a high bar. He instantly sweeps Riley off her feet and unwittingly evokes Ben's wrath after the single dad was just starting to develop feelings for her. He'll recur in at least three episodes of the second season, which begins production next week.

THE WALKING DEAD just skipped a controversial comic story line
In the first two episodes of season three, viewers have been introduced to the world of "The Prison," in which Rick and his wily gang of survivors are hunkering down hoping to find a safe place to ride out the end of the world.

Fair enough. But, in the comics that storyline also included a gay male couple among the prisoners who were still hiding out in the prison. The characters, Dexter and Andrew, will apparently not be a part of the television series. There was no Dexter among the prisoners introduced in Sunday's episode, and the character of Andrew met a quick end at the business side of a zombie mob.

Dan O'Connor leaving HOLLYOAKS
Producers are keeping tight-lipped over exactly how and when Ally will make his exit.

The CW Developing Teenage Drama About Mary Queen Of Scots
The CW is developing REIGN, from writers/executive producers Laurie McCarthy and Stephanie SenGupta. The project, which was sold directly to the CW and laid off at CBS TV Studios, is a fantastical reimagining of the teenage Mary Queen of Scots.

Dick Wolf thanks Lady Gaga for promoting CHICAGO FIRE, which stars her boyfriend
Wolf took some time to thank the pop star in a conference call with television critics, where he also dished out compliments for Kinney and co-star Jesse Spencer.

“They are both doing an absolutely spectacular job and I also, because I haven’t spoken to her about it, but a shout out to Gaga for her tweets, which have been a bonus beyond measure,” the TV producer admits.
