TVLine Items: Steven Weber Gets Hot in Cleveland, Baranski Back on Big Bang and More!

Steven Weber has booked a cool gig on Hot in Cleveland.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the veteran actor has landed a guest spot in an upcoming episode of the TV Land comedy, playing the man who left Jane Leeves’ Joy standing alone at the altar.

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

• Big Bang Theory executive producer Bill Prady revealed via Twitter that Good Wife‘s Christine Baranski will reprise her role as Leonard’s mother on the CBS sitcom’s upcoming 100th episode. “Christine’s cameo will be shot in New York, uploaded and appear as a Skype conversation on Leonard’s laptop for the show [shooting] tonight,” Prady wrote.

Sunday’s killer Boardwalk Empire finale brought in 3 million viewers — a season high. A sneak preview of Luck followed with 1.1 million viewers.

Sounds like Pretty Little Liars‘ winter run (premiering Monday, Jan. 2) is going to be a doozy. According to EW.com, the ABC Family drama will finally reveal the identity of elusive tormentor “A” in the March 19 season finale.

Netflix is close to giving a series order to Hemlock Grove, a thriller exec-produced and directed by big screen horror master Eli Roth, per Deadline.

• Seth Rogen has been named as host of the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards, airing Sunday, Feb. 25 on IFC.

    Darn! I was all excited about seeing Mrs. Hofstadter again on TBBT, but it’s only a skype conversation?! Boo! She’s an awesome character and needs to come back in person soon!!!

    • CJ says:

      Having a guest appearance, however brief, by a person who stars on another show filmed on the opposite coast, is pretty special.

  2. Jake says:

  3. chase says:

    Baranski is awesome as Mrs Hofstadter. Can’t wait to see her cameo even if it is only online.

  4. Cloudy Knight says:

    It should be funny, no matter where it’s shot and where it’s seen. That character is awesome.

    Darn! I was hoping that Leonard’s mother would actually appear on the show, so she can finally meet Amy and Bernadette. :)
