TV quick hits: News on ‘2 Broke Girls,’ Josh Duhamel, ‘Teen Wolf,’ Tom Bergeron, and more

It could happen -There’s a lot of stuff to get to today in this new edition of TV quick hits, so with that in mind, let’s dive right in here with the big news regarding Tom Bergeron.

Tom leaves “AFV” – After spending fifteen years watching people get hit in the crotch with a ball, Bergeron has decided that next year will be his last as the main personality behind “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” While this show was first made famous thanks to Bob Saget, Tom brought it stability, and was the longest-tenured person to ever be involved in the proceedings over on ABC

Tom himself confirmed the news in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, and the good news is that there is no indication that he will be leaving his other show in “Dancing with the Stars” anytime soon:

“I’m embracing change this month … DWTS will sure have plenty of it. And I’ve decided that, after 15 wonderful seasons as host of AFV, next year, the show’s 25th anniversary(!!), will be my last. As Doctor Who fans know, every so often a regeneration is a good thing.”

Oh, and Tom: The “Doctor Who” reference is amazing.

Now, we turn to things from the world of castings:

Lindsay Lohan’s new gig – Based on the fact that there are photos of Lindsay trying to block the paparazzi with a script for “2 Broke Girls,” we’re guessing that there is something coming up there for the actress on the show. Lindsay recently guest-starred on “Anger Management,” and also has a documentary series on OWN right now entitled “Lindsay.”

Josh Duhamel joins “Battle Creek” – This is great news for Duhamel, given that this series (which also stars Dean Winters and Kal Penn) from CBS is the first new project on TV from Vince Gilligan not affiliated with “Breaking Bad.” David Shore (“House”) is going to be more of the day-to-day showrunner. Duhamel’s character will work alongside Winters, and his name is FBI Special Agent Milton Chamberlain.

“Teen Wolf’s” new character – “Teen Wolf” has announced one of their new characters, and this should be a progressive one for the show. According to E! News, Mason Dye (“Flowers in the Attic”) is going to play a lacrosse player ironically named Mason, who is a gay freshman with a great sense of humor about himself.

“About a Boy” snags Tony Hale – Per Entertainment Weekly, the “Veep” / “Arrested Development” favorite will appear in an upcoming episode as Fiona’s ex and Marcus’ father.
