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

Lost alum Terry O’Quinn, who just last week made his Hawaii Five-0 debut, has thus far extended his run with the CBS drama from six to nine episodes — and maybe “even more,” hopeful EP Peter Lenkov tells TV Guide Magazine.

• Former West Winger Richard Schiff will play dad to working mom Christina Applegate on NBC’s Up All Night, reports. Schiff’s character is described as a “psychologist who’s expected to be distant, quiet, and always analyzing.” As first reported by Deadline, Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents) will play Reagan’s mom.

 Matthew Morrison will make his directorial debut on Episode 8 of Glee‘s third season, per

• Grey’s Anatomy vet Kate Burton will portray the Vice President of the United States on Shonda Rhimes’ midseason ABC drama, Scandal.

The Vampire Diaries executive producer Kevin Williamson is channeling his inner Dexter with a new serial killer drama pilot for Fox. Per Deadline, the Scream king’s new project is “an edge-of-the-seat thriller about a diabolical serial killer who uses technology to create a cult of serial killers.”

• Precious director Lee Daniels is set to adapt the 1960s classic novel Valley of the Dolls for NBC, per Deadline. Dolls spans two decades of the scandalous lives of three female best friends.

• Lifetime has renewed its over-the-top docu-series Dance Moms for a second season, with the first cycle set to wrap on Oct. 5.

• Season 4 of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta will premiere Sunday, Nov. 6.

    I’m happy about Terry O’Quinn staying on H50 longer, but I really dislike the new girl. They were underusing Chin and Kono as it was without adding yet another person team member.

  2. Lynn says:

    I agree Kate! I’m happy to have more Terry O’Quinn on H50…but I’m not a fan of the new girl, Lori Weston. At least not yet. I like Kono so much better…and I miss her with the team.

  3. Curious says:

    Always happy to see Terry O’Quinn. The new girl isn’t so bad but I want Kono back as well.

    Interesting that no mentioned the departure of the CIA girl. And no mention of the season premiere ending when she was in the car with Wo Fat! What is she up to? I’m sure we’ll be seeing her again at some point. Good cop or bad cop?

    • Kate says:

      I’m thinking bad cop, because otherwise I feel like at least Steve would know she was undercover.

    • K says:

      Oh she’s not a cop at all. And I don’t believe for a second that she’s CIA. She’s a plant from Wo Fat’s organization.
      Not sure exactly why, but I’m sure we will get to that eventually.

      • Dennis says:

        Don’t be surprised if it is revealed that McGarret was onto her to begin with. I’d say he allowed her to think he bought the fiance story, when in reality he wanted her out. He will probably be hoping she will lead him to Wo Fat. More chum in the water.

    I like the new girl, hope they get rid of Kono she does not seem
    to blend in with the other cast members, she hesitates in her
    delivery of her dialogue.

  5. Isabelle says:

    About HF0 I was a big fan of the new girl, I like that she and Steve had chemistry and she could handle herself. I liked Kono alot season 1 but now I just find her boring, I hated when they would jump to her scenes since because they held no interest

  6. Guess says:

    I can’t wait for The Walking Dead!
