Are we in for a very different kind of Jersey Shore this season
• Tim Daly has already been axed from Private Practice, and according to a new report from Deadline, Kate Walsh may also be on her way out. The actress, who has played Dr. Addison Montgomery for seven years (two on Grey's Anatomy and five on Private Practice), signed on for the show's upcoming 13 episodes, but after that she will reportedly depart the series.
• The fourth season of White Collar premieres on July 10 at 9/8c on USA, and we've got your first look at what's in store for Neal (Matt "Congrats on Your Face" Bomer) and Peter (Tim DeKay). You can check out the new Season 4 trailer here to find out what's in store for our favorite con man and his ex-FBI handler.
• Swedish born actress Katia Winter is joining the seventh season of Dexter. The actress, who is best known for her role opposite Kellan Lutz in the feature film Arena, will play a Russian stripper who works in a Miami club. Jason Gedrick was previously cast as the owner of the club where Winter's character works.
• Stand-up great Jerry Seinfeld is rumored to be making an appearance on the upcoming season of FX's Louie, which premieres on June 28. FX would not comment on the rumor, but we're just going to go ahead and cross our fingers and toes that it's true.
• DVR Watch: Best Friends Forever wraps up its funny, underwatched first season with two back-to-back episodes (NBC, 8pm & 8:30pm), Fairly Legal has Ben and Kate going to Tahoe to settle a dispute but they end up getting caught up in an unsolved murder (USA, 9pm), Curtis does community service on Tyler Perry's House of Payne (TBS, 9pm), and a woman's murder is linked to an online dating site on Common Law (USA, 10pm).
Are we in for a very different kind of Jersey Shore this season?
We already know that Snooki is pregnant and will therefore not be the font of drunken debauchery that she once was. Now word comes that when the cast of the Shore went out to a bar last night, NO ONE drank. Apparently Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, who recently spent time in rehab for problems related to perscription pills and alcohol abuse, chose not to drink and the rest of the cast followed his lead in a show of solidarity.
While it's tremendous that Sorrentino and his castmates are committed to his recovery, booze-free bar nights just don't feel like the Jersey Shore we all know and love. Are our favorite guidos and guidettes finally growing up? Are we in for a season of Scrabble nights and polite discourse? Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
