'90210' casts Teddy's new love interest; Phyllis Frelich cast as Grissom's mom on 'CSI'
Tony award-winning actress Phyllis Frelich has been cast on "CSI" as Gil Grissom's long lost mother. The episode, which is set to air Feb. 3, will feature a murder at a school for the death with Frelich's character teaches at. Grissom's wife Sara goes to investigate and goes head-to-head with her mother-in-law. Funnily enough, Frelich's on-screen son, William Petersen, will not appear in the episode. [EW]
Pint-size "Jersey Shore" star Snooki will be placed inside a ball that will drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve for MTV's "New Year's Bash." The rest of the cast will get the crowd fist-pumping to try and break a Guiness world record. The hour-long show is hosted by comedian Whitney Cummings and will feature a performance by Flo Rida.
