There’s a word to describe the reaction of fans of the late great show "Veronica Mars" and "Heroes": geekgasm. Kristen Bell will be guest-starring in a multi-episode story arc on "Heroes" next season. That’s a big “get” for the show, as “Lost” was also wooing her for a role. Variety reports that Bell will play play "Elle, a character described as a sexy, mysterious young lady who has ties to the supposed death of Peter, H.R.G.’s past and the future of Claire. Elle will kick off her arc by committing a serious crime, though it’s unclear whether she’s good or bad."

File under “irony”: YouTube yanks clip of Colbert & Jon Stewart talking about YouTube deposition. A clip of them talking about getting deposed has been replaced by the message: "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Viacom International Inc."

HBO has renewed "Flight of the Conchords" and "Entourage" HBO also cancelled David Milch’s show “John From Cincinnati”, but bad news for fans of Milch’s former show “Deadwood”: it’s pretty unlikely that we’ll get those movies that were suggested as a way to wrap up the series. Alan Sepinwall explains why "Deadwood" movies are likely not going to happen.
