Comic-Con wrapped up over the weekend, Variety has an article about some of the hits and misses presented by TV and film studios at this year’s convention. Zap2It has a page devoted to all of their reports from the convention, and The Futon Critic filed reports from dozens of TV show panel discussions.

One of the bits of news to come out of Comic-Con was that Mitch Pileggi, best known as Assistant Director Skinner on The X-Files, will guest star on Supernatural this season.

Over at CBS, Greatest American Dog swapped time slots with the Wednesday edition of Big Brother.

TV Guide went inside reality TV school to get some tips for success from cast members of shows like A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. That’s definitely who I’d turn to for career advice.

Dancing with the Stars‘ Marissa Jaret Winokur became a mom last week.

In other DwtS news, Tom Bergeron will join all of the other nominees in the reality TV host category in hosting the 60th annual Primetime Emmys.
