For those of you who forsook Thursday night’s Jersey Shore series finale — end of the world or not — there is one announcement that you missed: “It” comedienne Rebel Wilson will host the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, airing Sunday, April 14.

* Rosie O? More like, “Rosie, no.” A spokesperson for NBC has rebuked a rumor — perpetuated by Rosie O’Donnell herself and one gossip blog — that the comedienne/talk show host is filling a seat on the America’s Got Talent dais. “NBC is not in talks with Rosie O’Donnell for America’s Got Talent and has no future plans for her to be a judge,” the network rep told our sister site Deadline.
* Showtime will explore The Vatican via a pilot to be directed by Ridley Scott, penned by Paul Attanasio (House) and which promises “a provocative contemporary genre thriller about spirituality, power and politics – set against the modern-day political machinations within the Catholic church.”
* Sorry, Vlada Gelman: The L.A. Complex appears shuttered for good. Per The Hollywood Reporter, The CW has passed on plucking the undersampled Canadian-based sudser from the ashes.
* Adult Swim has renewed the animated series Black Dynamite for a second, 10-episode season to air in late 2013/early 2014, Deadline reports.
