The Disney Channel has ordered a season of the highly anticipated Boy Meets World sequel, Girl Meets World. The comedy is expected to debut sometime in 2014.

In today’s ‘ugh’ news, TMZ says that Charlie Sheen is trying to get the faboo Selma Blair fired from their sitcom Anger Management after Blair complained about her co-star being late. Remember how Sheen was on his best behavior when he was trying to sell the show to a network? That’s over now.

When TV Guide asked Max Greenfield what he’s doing over the summer, his list promised, “I’ll be doing some CrossFit, because I know New Girl’s going to start off strong with the nudity.”

Max GreenfieldLike I needed more reason to be looking forward to the return of New Girl.

The Hollywood Reporter promised to ask former The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara about “killing a beloved character” but ended up talking about Andrea instead. I think that’s supposed to be a joke.

Lifetime has yet to order a third season of The Client List and Deadline claims the issue is how the show will deal with Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s pregnancy. The pregnancy will be written into the show but the star wants her real-life fiance Brian Hallisay to also father the baby in the series, even if the network disagrees.

The Client List, that’s probably a reason to veto the idea.

The family of a man who’s suicide was aired live on Fox News is suing the channel, which failed to cut the video feed despite Shepard Smith repeatedly calling for the feed to be cut. The lawsuit claims emotional distress for the three sons who saw their father kill himself on video sites that would not have had the footage if Fox had cut the video in time.

Gabriel Mann is visiting today’s show, hopefully to talk about getting an interesting love interest on Revenge this season.

Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family) 8:00 PM ET
Mrs. DiLaurentis gives Hannah the family a parrot as a gift, which sounds like a bit of a pain until the bird starts repeating some of Alison‘s last words. I’m pretty sure there was a Three’s Company like that, except instead of all the threats and stalking, the bird was talking about a treasure that turned out to be cheap ceramics. (That started as a joke but now I think I remember that episode.)

Pretty Little Liars, "Turn of the Shoe"If only we could count on “A” to switch the bird with the racist parrot from Happy Endings.

So You Think You Can Dance (Fox) 8:00 PM ET
The auditions are over, now it’s time to debut the top twenty.

The Haves and Have Nots (OWN) 9:00 PM ET
One of the few characters who has only hinted at having a secret is Kathryn, who doesn’t like to be bothered when she gets tired and decides to lie down. It turns out Hanna‘s on a secret-learning roll as she finds out what Kathryn is hiding. That comes as Hanna’s dealing with the other secret she learned, that Benny mortgaged her house.

Twisted (ABC Family) 9:00 PM ET
Hmm, was I the only one watching and thinking this was like Bates Motel if told from the perspective of Emma and Bradley? I’m not sure how long that will last since tonight sees a counselor (the faboo and underused Keiko Agena) come to help students deal with their grief. Since Bates Motel happens in a town where the traffic is occasionally jammed by outbreaks of vigilante justice, I don’t think they need grief counseling.

Twisted, "Grief is a Five-Letter Word"

Chopped (Food Network) 10:00 PM ET
This week’s surprise ingredients include tempeh, dandelion greens, chia seeds and a, er, “local sweetener”. Okay, I’m intrigued by what that means — a stevia plant Ted grew on his windowsil?

The Voice (NBC) 9:00 PM ET
For the live finale, Cher will be performing “Woman’s World” the first single from her new album.

Cher, "Woman's World"

Awkward.: Most Awkward Moments (MTV) 10:00 PM ET
I guess MTV isn’t sure if its viewers can remember what happened in the recent half-season (I guess they’re presuming they’re all fans of The Challenge), so it’s debuting a recap special a week after the finale.

Watch What Happens Live (Bravo) 11:00 PM ET
Andy‘s chatting with Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer. I expect either they’ll either sit for the interview naked or face Andy’s questions about why they’re willing to drop trou for Piers Morgan but not him.

What will you be watching tonight? Please share in the comments!
