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

American Horror Story: Coven may get a companion series. FX Networks CEO John Landgraf tells The Hollywood Reporter that “there’s a decent possibility” that the upcoming installment of AHS will feature a corresponding chatfest. However, unlike AMC’s The Talking Dead, Coven‘s companion show might run online instead of on TV.

• ABC is close to giving a straight-to-series, 13-episode order to The Black Box, Deadline reports. The drama, written by Amy Holden Jones (Mystic Pizza), is about a world-renowned neuroscientist who appears to have it all but constantly struggles with her mental illness. Ilene Chaiken (The L Word) will serve as showrunner.

So much for staying out of the media: Bristol Palin and her sis Willow will trade lives with Joan Rivers and  daughter Melissa on the June 23 episode of Celebrity Wife Swap.

LeAnn Rimes will guest-star on FX’s Anger Management as the sister of Charlie’s prison-group member Wayne, per In Touch. And yes, she will hook-up with Charlie.

The latest installment of Adam Scott’s The Greatest Event in Television History aired on Adult Swim last night, complete with a recreation of the Hart to Hart opening credits. Check it out below, alongside the original (thanks to the folks at Vulture), and then let us know how it compares (to Chuck‘s Hart-felt tribute).

  • Abc really needs to rethink their definitions of the words ‘wife’ and ‘celebrity’.

    • I both agree and disagree. I can only imagine how Bristol and Willow will end up treating Joan’s group of gay friends…and how Joan will treat the other Palin’s. Should be funny.

  • on either last weeks or the week befores WTF Sutter video, Kurt Sutter talked about doing the exact same thing for SOA as that AHS item. Wonder if that means those plans are going to be scrapped or if itll become an FX network regular thing for all their hit shows

  • Where I come from Bristols are a pair of tits. Somehow it sounds very appropriate.

  • FX should do a companion series for both AHS and SOA but they should air on TV not online.
    Talking Dead has been a VERY successful companion to TWD.

  • I think the “great character” which turns will be Rick… I know I sound crazy but personaly I thinkg.

  • I really hope Lunarick is over, it makes him seem weak ( he is the only character acting nuts). I’m also not thrilled with the Gov being a regular ( I don’t want him to be the Big Bad again). But, I can’t wait for SoA, AHS, and TWD to return, all three are favorites of mine. I wonder who would host SoA or AHS talk shows, I would probably give those a try. I like Chris Hardwick on Talking Dead and The Nerdist.

  • Character turns could be a veer off the character..not as turning into a zombie…They just die…??

  • that walking dead thing isn’t a spoiler or preview. it just shows season 3 clips and discusses a mysterious action sequence that will happen in the premiere.
