Regis Philbin's replacement on ABC could be Rob Lowe, reports say.

Lowe just finished a two-day stint guest hosting with Kelly Ripa and an ABC source says the top network brass "loved the chemistry between them."

Network executives have spoken with Lowe's reps about making it a permanent gig, but Lowe, who stars on Parks and Recreation, is non-committal.

There's a big surprise. One of the more itinerant actors around, Lowe has departed in the middle of numerous programs' runs in pursuit of other projects.

Rob was just asked by TMZ whether he's moving to New York.

He said: "We were just talking about that. I love New York. I love the energy. It would be a change of pace. I'm a California boy, but it could be fun."

Thoughts? Rob Lowe replacing Regis Philbin ...

A Real Housewife is about to make a real impact on Glee.

NeNe Leakes confirmed today via Twitter that she's coming on board this Fox hit as a rival to Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester, writing on the social network:

Running through the house screaming Gleeeeee! Coach Roz Washington is gonna get that Sue Sylvester! I'm so proud of myself... Running through the house screaming Gleeeeee! Coach Roz Washington is gonna get that Sue Sylvester! I'm so proud of myself.

NeNe Leakeson Bravo

It's unclear whether or not Leakes will sing on the series, but she'll be featured because a returning Chord Overstreet - as Sam Evans - will join her synchronized swimming squad.

Step outside, Game of Thrones fans. Can you feel it? Oh yes, the colds winds are coming.

So teases the following promo, which premiered last night on HBO and which previews the second season of this enormous hit. It will kick off in April and continue the battle for the Iron Throne, as the trailer is narrated by Robert Baratheon's brother and makes very clear his intentions to soon wear the crown.

"The Iron Throne is mine by right," he intones, telling his enemies to "bend the knee," or... well: "I will destroy them."

Did you miss her?

About seven months after signing off from her iconic daytime talk show, Oprah Winfrey will return to the small screen. The mega star will host a primetime series on OWN titled "Oprah's Next Chapter." It will focus on her visits with other celebrities around the world.

Oooooprah!

"After 25 years, I got myself out of the studio chairs," Winfrey said in a statement. "I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever - moving around the country and the world talking to people I'm really interested in getting to know and I think viewers will be, too. It is so energizing to be out and about in the world exploring new people, new places and new ideas."

The premiere will air on January 1 and feature an interview with Steven Tyler at his home in New Hampshire. Future episodes will include guests such as Paula Deen,  George Lucas and Sean Penn.

Glee will take on the topic of teenage sex tonight, airing an episode titled "The First Time" for the reason you might expect: two couples will share their first sexual experience with each other.

In response, the Parents Television Council has issued a statement condemning the storylines, which will center around Blaine and Kurt, Rachel and Finn.

“The fact that Glee intends to not only broadcast, but celebrate children having sex is reprehensible,” said PTC president Tim Winter. “The gender of the high school characters involved is irrelevant. Teen sex is now more prevalent on TV than adult sex and Glee is only playing into that trend. Research proves that television is a teen sexual super peer that can, and likely will, influence a teen’s decision to become sexually active. Fox knows the show inherently attracts kids; celebrating teen sex constitutes gross recklessness.”

This isn't the first time the PTC has called out Glee for sensationalizing sex.

What do you think? Is it wrong to air a storyline based on teenagers having intercourse?

Conan O’Brien is resurrecting an old standby tonight.

For the first time since moving to TBS last year, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog will join O’Brien on stage. Conan tweeted the news via this pic from New York, where he's broadcasting this week. He's not looking too pleased about the insults to come:

Triumph and Conan

Technically, O’Brien’s content from NBC is property of that network, but the TBS host has already brought the Masturbating Bear back without repercussions.

It's go time for Triumph tonight. This sock puppet pooch drops comedic bombs on foolz like no other, and we can only pity who his victim(s) might be.

If you haven't seen this crass canine in action, you're in luck. We've dug deep and posted Triumph at the premiere of Star Wars: Episode II below ...
