Breaking Bad beauty Betsy Brandt (say that three times fast!) is the latest in a long line of ladies stopping by ABC’s No Ordinary Family.

Brandt will appear in the February 8 episode of NOF as a research scientist pal of Stephanie’s (Julie Benz) who falls victim to a crime. So it looks like Brandt isn’t following in the footsteps of villainous guest star Tricia Helfer.

Here’s a rundown of a few other things happening in the world of TV today:

EW.com reports that the CW is developing a new reality series titled H8R. Details on the project are scarce because it’s still early, but it will reportedly involve teaming up celebrities and the run-of-the-mill folk who really, really hate them.

• Larry Hagman will reprise his legendary J.R. Ewing role in TNT’s new Dallas reboot, confirms TV Guide Magazine.

• Starz’ Spartacus: God of the Arena, which launched Friday, got off to a strong start, per Deadline. The series’ debut ratings were 66% higher than the original just one year ago.

• Reality trainwreck Tila Tequila will guest star on an upcoming episode of CBS’ S#*! My Dad Says, says TV Guide. So, yeah. There’s that.
