TVLine Items: Lip Sync Holiday Special, Schitt's Creek Return Date and More

Ever wanted to see an A-list celeb mouth the words to “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer”? Well, Lip Sync Battle is making all your dreams come true.

Although the Spike TV series doesn’t return for Season 2 until January, a holiday special will air Nov. 19, Vulture reports.

The bonus episode will feature stars of the upcoming Christmas film The Night Before, including Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie, as well as surprise guests.

As always, LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen will host the holiday-themed hour.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Schitt’s Creek will return for its second season on Wednesday, March 16, at 8/7c, with a two-episode premiere on Pop.

* Tony Award-winning actress Nikki M. James (Broadway’s The Book of Mormon) has joined the cast of BrainDead, CBS’ upcoming comic-thriller from Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King. In the series — about a fresh-faced Capitol Hill staffer who discovers that alien spawn are eating the brains of government officials — James will play Rochelle, a medical resident who teams up with Laurel (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to learn the truth about her father’s mysterious death.

* Pop singer Meghan Trainor will guest-star on Undateable‘s Oct. 30 episode, creator Bill Lawrence tweeted Thursday.

* My Big Fat Greek Wedding actress Nia Vardalos will recur on Graves, Epix’s political satire about a former U.S. president (played by Nick Nolte) who tries to reverse his administration’s mistakes long after he has left office. Vardalos will play Annie Novak, a top political consultant with killer instincts, who is hired to manage the potential Senate campaign of Margaret Graves (Sela Ward), the former POTUS’ wife.

* She is…renewed. E! confirmed on Thursday the long-rumored news that it has ordered a second season of Caitlyn Jenner’s reality series, I Am Cait.

* Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy) has landed the female lead in Still the King, CMT’s upcoming scripted comedy starring Billy Ray Cyrus as a washed-up country singer who discovers he has a 15-year-old daughter. Adams will play Debbie Lynn Cook, the teenager’s fiery and feisty mother.

    Schitt’s Creek return January 12th in Canada.

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    Really wish Drew Carey should host one more year of The Price is Right (if it gets renewed) despite his contract because I can’t stand him mostly for his weird attitude and erratic behavior and I think that plugging a daytime or late night talk show would be a great fit for Mr. Carey instead of hosting a tired and boring game show that’s been on for 40+ years. BTW, TPIR should change it to TV-PG.
