Jennifer Aniston will be guest starring in NBC's "30 Rock," her rep confirms. This will be her first appearance in the network since her "Friends" stint.
Her publicist, Steven Huvane, tells E! news, "She is shooting now. We are not giving any specifics on her character."
Aniston is the second "Friends" alum to guest on the series. Her on-cam love interest, David Schwimmer, also appeared on the Tina Fey-created sitcom last season.
The kids on "Desperate Housewives" certainly grow up fast. Maybe that's because when the show returns in September for its fifth season, it will have fast-forwarded five years -- which means the kids will go from tots to teens.
The show's five-year jump has opened the door for new cast members in the Scavo family. Goodbye to the terrible twins, little red-headed Parker and baby Penny who never really said anything -- and welcome to a whole gang of actors.
Celebrity News Service took a look at the new actors who will play the troubled brood belonging to Tom and Lynette Scavo and found out that the new actors seem to be in for some juicy story lines.
NBC's late night talk shows continue their Olympic theme Friday night, as Jay Leno will welcome gold medal gymnast Shawn Johnson and Conan O'Brien will welcome Bob Costas, who spent two weeks in Beijing as a commentator.
Jimmy Kimmel will welcome Lauren Conrad, from "The Hills," where some possible gossip from her show may be revealed.
David Letterman has Kim Kardashian on as a guest, as she continues to make the late night talk show rounds.
Country singer John Rich, who is host of the CMT show "Gone Country," will take his country-wannabes on a tour bus Friday night. The group won't be singing in stadiums, however, because Rich is taking them to prison to entertain some hardened convicts.
Friday night will also be the season finale of "Queen Bees." After seven weeks of competition, the mean girl who has become the nicest will win $25,000.
"Real Time With Bill Maher" also returns Friday night for 13 new weeks of shows.
Ricky Schroder has come a long way since his days as a child star on "Silver Spoons." Now, a respected director and actor, he has signed to direct "Hellhounds," a telefilm that will air next year on Sci Fi Channel.
Celebrity News Service was happy to learn that the star of the show will be Scott Elrod, who had a recurring role as Cash on ABC's "Men in Trees." Thank goodness he has found more work because he is definitely ranks up there among the good-looking actors. Someone needs to alert Schroder that Elrod looks best when filmed without a shirt. We only know this because he spent much of his "Men in Trees" time in freezing Alaska without a shirt. He may have been cold, but it still worked and almost makes it surprising that the show didn't make it.
The good news is, the movie is set in 500 B.C., and stars Elrod as Kleitos, a Greek warrior who with his companions fights against the hellhounds of Hades to rescue his bride from the Underworld and bring her back to life.
NBC is having a great summer. First they had a ratings hit with the Olympics, and to make things a little better they also had a hit with the summer series "America's Got Talent." Thanks to the success of the show, and the talent of Americans, the show has been renewed for a fourth season.
NBC announced Thursday that the show will continue, claiming it is the "most successful winner in reality television history."
Celebrity News Service isn't sure it is the most successful -- after all, "Survivor" is headed into its 17th installment and "American Idol" has produced some real stars. If you stop and think about it, even "The Bachelor" has produced one real and lasting relationship. Ok, so maybe "The Bachelor" doesn't count.
Rumer Willis has been cast in hit U.S. TV show "Army Wives." The 20-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore - who can soon be seen in "The House Bunny," a comedy set in Hugh Hefner's Los Angeles' Playboy mansion - will play the wife of a young soldier injured in Iraq in one episode.
Rumer's appearance on the show will be aired in the U.S. on TV network Lifetime on October 12.
The actress - who is to be Miss Golden Globe at this year's awards, a role traditionally given to the child of a famous star - recently revealed starring in "The House Bunny" was a "massive learning experience" and she enjoyed working with "Scary Movie" actress Anna Faris.
Celebrity fashion stylist Rachel Zoe has helped "auf'd" the latest designer on Wednesday's "Project Runway" as she guest judges on the "Fashion that Drives You" episode of the show.
There are actually two guest judges for the week. Zoe, who helped made Nicole Richie and other young stars a fashion icon, and season 3's former contestant Laura Bennet, who fills in for Nina Garcia.
For the week's challenge, host Heidi Klum sends the remaining 10 designers to a roof of a parking garage full of Saturn Hybrid cars spare parts and raw materials. They were told to collect as much materials as they can within four minutes, which they will use as materials for their dresses.
Since swimming his way to Olympic victory, Michael Phelps has scored morning and late night show guest appearances, "SNL" hosting gig, MTV VMA presenting job, and now, an "Entourage" cameo.
E! News confirms that the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics' eight-time gold medalist has filmed a "spontaneous" cameo with the cast of the Emmy Award-winning HBO original series.
The swimmer's "Entourage" small role is his second on-cam appearance since coming back home from the Asian country.
NBC, which aired the Olympics, continues to shine gold as Olympic athletes stop in for visits with late night talk show hosts Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien, which are of course NBC shows. On Thursday night Jay will have a visit from swimmer Natalie Coughlin while Conan welcomes Aaron Peirsol.
Craig Ferguson will welcome Stockard Channing and Bill Engvall to his stage, while David Letterman will spend quality time with Brad Garrett and Blake Lively.
A list of Thursday night late show guests, according to Celebrity News Service, is as follows:
The CW is only days away from launching the new "Beverly Hills, 90210," a remake of a teen show that sparked drama and fashion in the '90s.
As the show's promos have been promising, it's the same zip code, but new drama. Celebrity News Service remembers the old drama of the '90s. All the guys and gals of Beverly Hills and all the drama they went through. But what about the new cast of characters, will they be just as memorable?
Here's a look at the new cast:
Sen. Barack Obama will accept his presidential nomination Thursday night in Denver, on the 45th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. That will surely call for some comparison between the two, all of which will be captured live on the major networks.
Also Thursday night, the Sundance channel will air "Live From Abbey Road," featuring Bryan Adams, Ben Harper and Justin Currie. Yes, this is the legendary recording studio made famous by The Beatles.
Meanwhile on CBS, another houseguest will be evicted on "Big Brother 10," while on Comedy Central we will see that America has some unusual talent on "Gong Show with Dave Attell."
The world's nerdiest secret agent will return in the fall with a full season of shows. NBC announced Thursday that "Chuck" is returning in September and nine new shows have been ordered to fill out the year.
Celebrity News Service was pleased to hear NBC's announcement, after all, who doesn't enjoy a show about a geeky guy who reluctantly becomes a super spy. The best part of the show is the characters are sharp, it's action-packed and it even tickles the funny bone. In case you didn't watch the first season of "Chuck," here is the basis of the show:
Chuck Bartowski, played by Zachary Levi, is a computer geek who is catapulted into a new career as the government's most vital secret agent. When Chuck opens an e-mail subliminally encoded with government secrets, he unwittingly downloads an entire server of sensitive data into his brain.
It doesn't seem possible that the CBS show "Survivor" is about to embark on its 17th installment, but it is, and this time the new cast of survivors are headed to Africa for "Survivor: Gabon - Earth's Last Eden."
If you are a survivor fan that has stuck with the show since the beginning, that means you made 16 prior trips into the wilderness with people you didn't know, but who seemed like family at the end. Are you ready to do it again?
CBS has announced that 18 castaways will be battling it out in Africa this time around and -- here is the network's big news -- it will all be captured in high-definition. Yes, that means we will be able to see each little hair on the heads of those poor little caterpillars before the castaways eat them.
Addison Forbes Montgomery's love life will be heating up on ABC's "Private Practice" this season, and this is good news for her alter ego Kate Walsh. We were first introduced to Addison on "Grey's Anatomy," where the lovely doctor was part of a miserable love triangle -- and Addison lost out to Derek and Meredith.
So ABC gave Addison a spin-off show, "Private Practice," were she did some practicing, but mostly medically speaking. In the upcoming season, however, creator Shonda Rhimes has said that Addison is going to add a little love into the mix.
Celebrity News Service is gung-ho for Addison to have some romance, especially because her new suitor is actor David Sutcliffe. If his name doesn't ring a bell, how about Christopher Hayden? Yes, that would be Lorelai's Christopher, father of Rory Gilmore, on our much-loved and sadly-departed show "Gilmore Girls." Oh, how we miss Chris, and the Gilmore ladies.
Olympic star swimmer Michael Phelps has been tapped to host NBC's "Saturday Night Live" in its 34th season premiere on September 13.
This will be the 23-year-old 14-time Olympic gold medalist's first acting gig.
Phelps joins the ranks of skater Nancy Kerrigan and skier Jonny Mosely as past Olympians who have hosted the live comedy sketch show.
Even our superheroes on NBC's "Heroes" couldn't fight the worst television villain of all -- the dreaded writers' strike.
While "Heroes" fans know that the writers' strike affected the ending of the show, and canceled an eight-episode volume called "Exodus," what Celebrity News Service recently learned was that the newly released season two "Heroes" DVD set deals a little differently with the writers' strike.
It's almost like Hiro went back in time and changed the ending of the show. In the December cliff-hanger of "Heroes," Peter (played by the terminally hot Milo Ventimiglia) grabs a vial of the Shanti virus as it falls and keeps it from breaking. That wasn't always the plan, however.
More viewers tuned in to watch Monday's Democratic National Convention from Denver, Colorado than they did four years ago when the party nominated Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) to run against President George W. Bush.
According to Nielsen Media Research, approximately 21.4 million people watched Barack Obama's wife, Michelle Obama, deliver her speech on opening night, Monday, up some 3 million from the 18.4 million who tuned in to watch the first night of the convention four years ago.
According to Nielsen, the 8.9 million viewers who tuned in to the three cable networks (CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News) during this year's convention's 8 to 11 p.m. prime-time, almost doubled the 4.8 million viewers who watched Kerry's Democratic convention in 2004.
Wednesday is day three of the Democratic National Convention, and former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to speak as is Barack Obama's new running mate, Sen. Joe Biden.
Over on Bravo, things are heating up faster than a curling iron as the three remaining contestants battle it out for good hair days, and the grand prize of $100,000. The show will conclude with its season two finale Wednesday night.
NBC has just finished airing two weeks of Olympics, and now they will host two hours of "America's Got Talent" in which ten of the Top 40 acts take to the stage.
The late night talk shows are scoring some gold medal moments, most noticeably the fact that Michael Phelps has finally signed on for an appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno." The winner of the eight gold medals will visit with Leno on September 8. Must be something about the number eight.
That doesn't mean Wednesday night will have any less golden moments, as wrestling gold medalist Henry Cejudo will stop by for a visit with Leno.
Beach volleyball gold medalists Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor will make an appearance on the "Late Show With David Letterman."
