TVLine Items: Much Glee for Charice, The CW Gets Witchy, and Other TV News to Know

Wondering if you’ll ever see Rachel’s pint-size rival Sunshine again? Well, the answer is yes — and lots of her.

Pop starlet Charice told Tuesday night that she’ll be back on Glee soon enough, and not just for a quick cameo.

”I’m doing Glee, of course,” she said. “I’m on for four more episodes, which is exciting.” Details on Sunshine’s return are scarce, but she’s hoping she’ll get to showcase her diva side, with songs like “Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy In Love.’” We concur.

Curious about other things happening in TV land today? Well…

• The CW has officially picked up its latest supernatural drama pilot, The Secret Circle, Deadline reports. The Vampire Diaries‘ Kevin Williamson recently joined the project as executive producer of the witch-based series, and co-writer of its pilot episode.

Saturday Night Live alum Norm MacDonald is returning to TV in the aptly titled Sports Show with Norm MacDonald. The eight-episode series is set to premiere on Comedy Central in April.

• Kerry Washington (Ray, Boston Legal) has joined Shonda Rhimes’ latest TV venture, In Crisis, says Deadline. The pilot is based on famed crisis management consultant Judy Smith, and “revolves around the life and work of professional fixer Olivia Price and her dysfunctional staff.”

• Ageless Lost wonder Nestor Carbonell has signed on to Sarah Michelle Gellar’s much-talked about CBS pilot, Ringer, per Deadline.

• The latest Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover will once again be revealed on Late Show with David Letterman, Monday, February 14.

• The inaugural season of Top Chef All-Stars will head abroad for the four-part finale, per usual, and TV Guide Magazine says the destination is the Bahamas. Cue the lovely Padma Lashmi in a bikini!

  • I LOVE The Secret Circle. SO excited about this, moreso than I ever was for Vampire Diaries even though I’m a fan. I just HOPE Kevin leaves the characters from the books alone. Smith already gave us the perfect assortment of characters originally. Definitely her best book. I can’t wait to hear who they cast.

  • Wait…Charice is going to do “Crazy in Love”???? Didn’t the cast already do that (mashed up with “Hair”, sung by Mercedes and Artie)? Are we repeating songs now?

    • Calm down. They are not repeating songs. She would like to do similar songs “With songs like…”

  • Glee has become more more excited to watch with charice in it….

  • A lot of people care about Charice! Isn’t glee all about singing more than acting? But with the passage of time, I’m sure she will be better at acting in her next glee appearance. And I believe one of the reasons why she is given four more episodes is Ryan Murphy believes in her talent . besides with everything going on in her career between her first glee appearance and the next she has bloomed and grown to stardom

    Comment by Cecile jl – February 12, 2011 02:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The reason why Ryan murphy won’t allow Charice to appear in every episode because she can easily take the spotlight from rachelle and other so called singers in glee club…it’s true Charice is not a good actress but the girl really has a phenomenal vocal talent and charisma imagine if she’s a great actress at the same time.

    • hahaha who’s rachelle? fyi, if you want to be on the number 1 show in the U.S., you need to be a good actress otherwise, they will not keep you. charice has no charisma just like her character sunshine.

  • Just stumbled on this video of Charice singing “Seasons of Love” with Rent’s Adam Pascal and the Backbeats at a recent fundraiser:

  • FYI, starlet = a wanna be actress who poses for porn mags and can’t act. Charice is a class on her own. she can sing even without a group behind her

    Comment by Phoenix – March 11, 2011 11:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The acting by charice was good as one commented. Her acting was perfect as an innocent exchange student. She is not a spy, her manager pull her out of the benifit show. So there might be some explaning to for the next episode.
    They show her life story in the Phillipines where she act as herself and the mother as one of the famous actress there. Her acting was great. She also surprise me on her 2011 TV 90 min concert “Home for Valentine”, with short practice with guest done in perfection.
