Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

• Midseason TV scoop! Work It, ABC’s Bosom Buddies-like comedy about two guys who pose as gals to land jobs, will play host to a Lost reunion when Sam Anderson (aka “Bernard”) guest-stars opposite series regular Rebecca Mader. “I was at a table read when I turned to my left and saw Sam’s cheeky grin! I squealed with delight,” the British beauty tells us of the surprise crossing of paths. “It was wicked to see him in a comedic role; he was hilarious!”

• Molly Sims (Las Vegas) has been tapped to host Lifetime’s eight-episode Project Runway spinoff, Project Accessory. Lifestyle expert Eva Lorenzotti will mentor contestants, with designer Kenneth Cole and InStyle editor Ariel Foxman forming the judge’s panel.

• Fox’s buzzy Locke & Key pilot might not be dead after all. According to Deadline, the series is being shopped around to other networks, and while Syfy passed, MTV has shown interest.

• NBC is developing a new buddy comedy — only there’s a twist. My Best Friend Is A Lesbo (actual title…for now) is about two female BFFs — one straight, the other gay — who decide to move in together to make life in Los Angeles easier.

• Fido, call your agent! TNT has picked up Scent of the Missing, a crime-drama pilot from CSI showrunner Carol Mendelsohn, per Deadline that centers on the “leader of a canine search-and-rescue team who assists various law enforcement agencies with her best friend and partner, a golden retriever.”

• ESPN has locked in the rights to continue airing Monday Night Football through the end of the 2021 season.

• Legendary actress Mary Tyler Moore will receive the Life Achievement Award at the 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony, to be held Jan. 29, 2012.

    • I think a good name for the show is Girl on Girl.

    • Can we all just effing agree that if it isn’t 4 main characters together it isn’t a Lost reunion? I am sick of all of these Lost reunion stories that get my hopes up only for it to be two people and in this case two peripheral characters unlike the Hawaii 5-0 casting of Jin and Locke.

      • I agree. To call this a lost reunion is ridiculous. Truly, no one cares about Rebecca Mader and Sam Anderson was never even a series regular!

  • Scent Of The Missing sounds like that show Sarah Marshall was starring in at the end of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, “Animal Instincts”.

    • That’s the first thing I thought of!

  • Except for the prospect of Locke & Key, it all looks bad.

    Comment by Lisa – September 8, 2011 10:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • And Mary Tyler Moore. But the prospect of seeing Locke and Key, even just the trailer, is really exciting!

  • I have missed Psych so much!! My summer just wasn’t the same without it.
    “you know that’s right”

    I think it’s nice thing that USA is doing for the fans.

    • Yeah, Psych and Summer go together like Shawn and Gus – I’ve missed them too! Whaaaaaat? :D

  • I used to love Psych in the beginning. But then, somewhere around S3 or 4 it started getting so over the top silly that I just couldn’t stomach it anymore. I’m actually surprised it is still on the air.

  • i’dd watch that lesbo show. even the tittle’s funny.

  • I’m dying for new episodes of “Psych”. This hiatus has been waaay too long and I need my Shawn and Gus fix.

    Comment by Carrie – September 8, 2011 12:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Lesbo show could actually be good/funny if they do it right. I’m intrigued.

    Comment by Lauren – September 8, 2011 04:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Can’t wait for “Scent of the Missing!”

  • Oh, how I wish I lived in New York! Oh well, I’ll be watching Psych Fan Appreciation Day over the internet, I guess. It’s awesome that they’re doing that! Right up there with the college tour last season.

  • Even if you win tickets to the Psych preview, you aren’t guaranteed admission. I found this buried in the rules:

    “Seating at Event is subject to availability and is on a first come, first serve basis. Prize and/or ticket confirmation do not guarantee entry into Event”
