Lucy, Spartacus Princess: A more-svelte and blonde Lucy Lawless is headed back to TV, with the new series ‘Spartacus’. The former Xena: Warrior Princess will join Andy Whitfield in the Starz show, which was developed by Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi, original creators of Xena.

Reiner’s Brains: Nine-time Emmy award-winner Carl Reiner will guest star on the season finale of ‘House.’ The actor will play a man whose left and right brains function independently, and who will probably wreak havoc on the cranky nature of Dr. House. The episode “Both Sides Now” will air May 11.

The Real World, Now Older Than You! The Real World has been picked up for four additional seasons, extending the series well into its 26th year. The series, currently based in Brooklyn, sees its season finale this Wednesday. The upcoming season is now being shot in the very spring-break friendly Cancun.
