Blake Jenner has earned a role on Glee Season 4.

Following an opening season in which Ryan Murphy actually awarded all three finalists with at least some appearance on his Fox hit, the creator said prior to Season 2 that only the actual winner would appear on Glee in 2012-2013.

The Glee Project Final Three

So, how did Jenner pull it out and earn himself a seven-episode stint?

He took on "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain for his final performance, tossing the microphone in a bit of fun showboating - and also writing a poem! That likely put him over the winning edge in the judges' eyes.

The panelists conferred and while all admired Aylin for her personal story, they gushed over Blake's acting skills and Ali's personality.

In the end, the acting won out. But should have? Did Blake Jenner deserve to win season two The Glee Project?

Ryan Lochte and his abs are coming to the CW.

The 11-time Olympic medalist will guest star on 90210's upcoming Season 5 in a pivotal role as ... Ryan Lochte, who's apparently a guest at the resort where Naomi and Max are staying in an attempt to strengthen their relationship.

A far cry from the next Bachelor, but hey.

The 28-year-old, who made his "acting" debut with a Funny or Die video breakdown of peeing in pools, has shown definite interest in the entertainment world.

Will the swimming great build upon this 90210 appearance or will Ryan quickly fade now that the 2012 London Olympics are over? That remains to be seen.

In any case, he's indicated he will try to extend his amazing career through the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, so expect him back in the pool before long.

We're very sorry, Brandon and Dylan. But you've been dissed once again.

In a new commercial for Old Navy, Jason Priestley and Luke Perry reunite with former Beverly Hills 90210 castmate Jennie Garth and pay homage to both the Fox series and one of its most memorable moments: when Kelly Taylor chose herself over a pair of handsome suitors.

A bit random to reference a series that went off the air 12 years ago? Yes. But, for long-time fans of the primetime soap opera, a bit awesome as well:

In another spot, Priestley costars with Gabrielle Carteris, who famously portrayed Andrea Zuckerman on 90210 and whose character had a crush on Priestley's Brandon.

And who, based on this commercial, is apparently still smitten:

With Jessica Sanchez already in negotiations to appear on Glee Season 4, sources now say the Fox hit may not be finished with American Idol finalists:

Pia Toscano is rumored to be closing in on a guest-starring gig.

The beautiful and talented singer was given the boot fairly early on in Season 10, in what many consider to be the most shocking elimination in show history. She's done just fine for herself since, however.

Toscano both sang on Dancing with the Stars and dated hot professional Mark Ballas for awhile. She has also signed a record deal.

As for Glee? Pia has no acting experience, but an insider tells E! News she has read for a role and "they absolutely loved her. She's a huge fan of the show."

Whether or not she ends up on television, Toscano has booked a part in Grace Unplugged, an upcoming film about a struggling musician. It starts filming this month in Alabama.

"I'm so excited about my very first acting role in Grace Unplugged," Toscano says. "I'm honored to be a part of this amazing film, and my character is a reflection of me, which makes this special for me."

The halls of Seattle Grace are about to get a whole lot less steamy. McSteamy, that is, as star Eric Dane has announced his intentions to leave Grey's Anatomy.

“I am extremely grateful to everyone at Grey’s, ABC and Shondaland for the experience and memories I have had over the course of this run,” Dane told TV Line in a statement. “It has been wonderful to work alongside and learn from a creative force such as [creator] Shonda Rhimes.”

Eric Dane as Mark Sloane

Dane will stick around to finish off his character's storyline - Season 8 concluded with Mark Sloane's long-time love, Lexie, dying in a plane crash - as Rhimes said the actor "did not come to this decision lightly," adding:

"We’re a big family here at Grey’s with a long history together and Eric will always remain an important part of our family. I wish him the best and I look forward to watching him as he continues to steam up the big and small screen.”

Grey's Anatomy Season 9 premiere on ABC September 27.

This move should free Dane up with more time to film another naked movie.

The Comedy in Comedy Central will remain intact during the 11 p.m. hour for at least another few years:

The network announced today that both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have signed new deals to remain in their respective posts at The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert

Stewart's pact calls for him to continue at the helm - as writer, host and executive producer - through 2015, while Colbert's contract runs through 2014.

Both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report have enjoyed surges in the ratings this year, with the former up 10 percent in adults 18-49 and the latter improvng by 11 percent in that key demographic.

There are television shows about families with 19 kids. And television shows about teenage mothers. There's even one that features strange addictions such as eating laundry detergent.

Yet One Million Moms - a conservative group that went after JC Penney after it hired Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson - believes an upcoming NBC sitcom titled The New Normal is "attempting to desensitize America and our children" because it centers on a gay couple and a surrogate.

The series stars Justin Bartha and Andrew Rannells as partner looking to adopt. That's the entire premise. And this is the statement One Million Moms has released in response to it:

NBC is using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage. These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture. Millions of Americans strongly believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman.

As for the millions of Americans who believe marriage should be between any two people in love and/or don't believe that their beliefs ought to dictate the airwaves?

The organization appears to have no comment.

He may or may not be on his way to American Idol.

But Adam Lambert is definitely stopping by Rosewood.

The singer has confirmed, via Twitter, that he will appear as himself later this year on an episode of Pretty Little Liars, the special standalone installment of the ABC Family drama based around Halloween to be specific.

Adam Lambert in the UK

"When we heard Adam was a fan of the show we knew that he would be a perfect fit for our Halloween episode," executive producer I. Marlene King told E! News of the casting. "He's oh so Rosewood!"

Look for Lambert to share a scene with Lucy Hale's Aria and to perform a pair of singles at a theme party during the hour.

This A should be slightly less scary than the one typically featured on the show.
