TVLine Items: The Rock's WWE Encore, Sister Wives Scoop, and Other TV News to Know

Can you still smell what The Rock is cookin’?

Hope so, because Dwayne Johnson, People’s Champion-turned-movie star, ended his seven-year wrestling hiatus Monday night by returning to the WWE RAW ring to announce his plans to host Wrestlemania XXVII this April.

“The most electrifying man of all of entertainment is hosting the most electrifying event of all of entertainment!” Johnson (as The Rock) exclaimed — looking better than ever! — in this behind-the-scenes video.

Ready for more TV dish? Well…

Sister Wives returns to TLC Sunday, March 13, EW.com confirms, and it’s going to be more dramatic than ever. The controversial series’ second season will embrace the real-life events Kody Brown and his four wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn — have encountered over the past year, including those felony bigamy charges in Utah.

Two and a Half Men boss Chuck Lorre once again (brilliantly) used his famed end-of-episode vanity cards to address some Charlie Sheen woes, this time stating:

“I exercise regularly. I eat moderate amounts of healthy food. I make sure to get plenty of rest. I see my doctor once a year and my dentist twice a year. I floss every night. I’ve had chest x-rays, cardio stress tests, EKG’s and colonoscopies. I see a psychologist and have a variety of hobbies to reduce stress. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t do drugs. I don’t have crazy, reckless sex with strangers.”

“If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I’m gonna be really pissed.”

• Lauren Conrad tells Us Weekly that her recently scrapped MTV series isn’t dead yet. In fact, said an enthusiastic Conrad, “The amount of offers I’ve gotten [from other networks] has been very flattering.”

The Social Network (and West Wing) scribe Aaron Sorkin is set to appear as himself on an upcoming episode of NBC’s 30 Rock, per EW.com. Details surrounding the episode are still under wraps, but it is set to air near the end of March or beginning of April.

    I could care less about WWE but as soon as I saw The Rock, I stopped channel-surfing and stayed right there. Mmmhm, The Rock.

    I was into wrestling for a few years when The Rock was at his peak. My husband was watching Raw last night as usual for him, and I could hear the screaming audience back in my bedroom. I came out to find out what was going on and was excited to see The Rock back “home.” There’s no more enjoyable smacktalker than him! I will definitely tune in to this year’s Wrestlemania!

    I quit watching WWE when the Attitude era was coming to an end, and it started to aim towards the younger kids. The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin couldn’t be beat.
