While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • The CW will kick off its fall season in October, with the return of "Hart of Dixie" on October 2; "Supernatural" on October 3; and "90210" and "Gossip Girl" on October 9. Their modern spin on "Beauty and the Beast" begins October 11 after "The Vampire Diaries" - check out the oh-so-cheesy trailer below. [EW]
  • Dan Harmon has been replaced as showrunner, but thankfully the entire cast of "Community" will return in October - including Chevy Chase. [Deadline]
  • It's a "New Day" for Alicia Keys - and that's also the title of her newest single, which dropped Thursday. Listen to it at the link. [RS]
  • In random couple news: Johnny Depp is said to be "100 percent dating" Amber Heard, who's rumored to have split with her girlfriend. We guess we're supposed to know that it's serious because it's been reported that Depp bought her a horse. [Us Weekly]
  • Following in their older sisters' footsteps, Kendall and Kylie Jenner are getting into the book business, and are co-writing a young adult novel with a sci-fi theme. [E!]
  • Jennifer Lawrence is holding on to her title of hardest working woman in Hollywood (OK, so we gave her that title - roll with it), because when she's not starring in blockbuster franchises, she's making an adorable, seemingly hilarious rom-com with the likes of Bradley Cooper. Check out the trailer for "The Silver Linings Playbook":
  • And lastly, in today's heavy video clip rotation, the music video for Jordin Sparks' duet with the late Whitney Houston, "Celebrate," from the soundtrack for the upcoming movie "Sparkle":

Critics: Sheen's 'Anger Management' more of the same

Tonight marks Charlie Sheen's big comeback after getting fired from CBS' "Two and a Half Men" last year, but reviews for his new FX show, "Anger Management," aren't leaving us with high expectations. Essentially, it sounds like you've probably seen it all before.

Sheen stars in the new series as baseball player-turned-therapist Charlie Goodson. His character counsels those in need of anger management .... even though he has some issues of his own. His anger is so prominent it ended his baseball career. (And yes, the show draws inspiration from Jack Nicholson's 2003 movie of the same name.)
