TVLine Items: James Denton's Post-Housewives Gig, NCIS: Los Angeles Hot Shots and More!

Erstwhile Desperate Housewives star James Denton has nabbed his first post-Wisteria Lane gig — and it finds him right smack in the middle of Ohio.

Per TV Guide Magazine, the actor will guest-star in the May 16 episode of Hot In Cleveland as a love interest for Jane Leeves’ Joy.

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

• Showtime is heating up this summer with the premieres of two returning series. First up, Season 2 of the Lisa Kudrow-led Web Therapy launches Monday, July 2 at 11/10c, and then The Real L Word returns Thursday, July 12 at 10 pm for its bound-to-be racy third season.

• It’s official: Téa Delgado is Port Charles-bound! TVLine has confirmed reports that One Live to Live alumna Florencia Lozano has been put on contract at General Hospital and will debut the week of May 7. GH vet Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) already has tweeted her welcome to Lozano’s legal eagle, saying, “Could use some help around the office. Unless of course ur on other side to which I say Game On!”

• And in wrapping up today’s column, we leave you with some pretty new shots of the NCIS: Los Angeles cast. For some unexplained reason Daniela Ruah (who plays Kensi) received two portraits, but TVLine’s Matt Mitovich says in an exclusive statement, “I’ll allow it.”

    Word of warning: “The Catalina” is produced by wrestling star Eric Bischoff.

    Is Breaking Pointe the new series by the Gilmore Girls people? I thought that was Bunheads or something like that.

  7. how did i already know James was on the show for joy, I rather see him be the one for melanie

    Why is Eric Christian Olsen so stern? He has such a sexy smile! Barely even looks like him. :(

    Florencia Lozano’s on contract?! Or is it recurring?

    I am so disappointed that ABC’s The Revolution has been cancelled. Is there nothing that can be done to save it. The hosts and hostesses were so helpful with all aspects of an individual’s life–fashion ideas offered by Tim Gunn, home improvement ideas from Ty Pennington, ways to cope with self esteem from Dr. Tiffanie, and home health remedies and physical health issues from Dr. Jenn and weight loss and exercise suggestions from Harley. The show was extremely inspiring from all aspects of one’s life.

    Disappointed that ABC keeps trying to find a niche for Katie Couric. Send her out in the field to do special assignments. Is she really that well liked by the ABC audience?

    The way our world is these days, murders, kidnapped children etc I have decided that as much as I’ve always loved General Hospital I will not watch it anymore. Them kidnapping Sam’s baby was the last straw. The story line was not necessary………..
