While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

Was Marc Anthony somewhere backstage, weeping tears of regret? And lastly, did she keep the sparkly suit on when she supposedly gave her 24-year-old rumored beau Casper Smart a private lap dance at an AMAs after party? [Celebuzz; THR; Page Six]

ABC announces midseason schedule, but where's 'Cougar Town'?

Say it ain't so, Courteney Cox! Entertainment Weekly reports that ABC is cutting back on its order of new "Cougar Town" episodes after the comedy was mysteriously missing from the network's midseason schedule, which was released Friday.

As was the case with "Community," there was confusion from "Cougar Town" fans when they didn't spot a premiere date and time for the ABC show.

The network has lined up slots for "Celebrity Wife Swap," "Work It," and "GCB (formerly "Good Christian Belles," and before that, "Good Christian Bitches")," but not for two other anticipated new series: Shonda Rhimes' "Scandal" and Krysten Ritter's "Don't Trust the B-- in Apartment 23."

'How to Make It In America': On their own

Time flies when you’re sleeping with cougars, warring with Jamaicans, eating tomatoes with Neanderthals and looking at hard time in a medium security prison.

That’s the past eight episodes of “How to Make It” in a nutshell, as the much-improved, fast-paced adventure that was season 2 came to an end Sunday night.

We kicked things off with Ben and Cam not being on speaking terms. As Cam tells his girlfriend and the show’s nominee for best- and worst-dressed character, Lulu, "Honestly, I have nothing to say to him.”
