Morning Brew – Fri. March 9: “The Talk” gets renewed, “Lip Service” is finally on the way, and where in the world is Dianna Agron?


Good morning! Welcome to Friday! We made it to the weekend!

You know how I was lamenting a lack of Lip Service news yesterday morning? Well, Diva magazine came through almost immediately, tweeting a photo of the gang’s first series two magazine cover. Which means it’s officially time to start getting excited!

How does Heather Peace manage to convey her swagger even in a photo? It’s uncanny.

Love being represented by a lesbian lady at the daytime talkshow roundtable? Well, good news for you: CBS has renewed The Talk for a third season. Sara Gilbert will be back, along with co-hosts Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler. CBS prez David Stapg told EW:

We’re proud that The Talk has already established great brand identity in only its second season. Much of the success can be attributed to our hosts’ chemistry and the work of our producers, whose selection of topics and guests are clearly resonating with viewers.

Would you get a load of that sandwich? GIVE THAT TO ME.

Our friends over at NewNowNext are starting to worry about Dianna Agron‘s Glee future.

Usually an avid Tweeter, Ms. Agron has not written of being on set or tweeted any photos of the cast since her departure. Her last set pic came from what may perhaps be her final scene at the side of the road. What’s more, the actress made an appearance in Paris for the Louis Vuitton show yesterday while her perhaps-former costars wrote of filming a group scene on their own Twitter accounts.

Well, maybe Paris doesn’t run over her with cars and give her solos to leprechauns and refuse to let her speak for weeks on end, like her abusive partner Glee! (Am I only writing about this so I’ll have an excuse to look at Dianna Agron photos first thing in the morning? Maybe, I am. And you can’t stop me!)

Anyone But Me‘s series finale is fast approaching. (March 20th, sniffle.) And fans of the show got a big surprise when YouTube decided to nominate the web series as an “On the Rise” participant. If it wins the poll —  which you can vote on here (upper right-hand corner of the page) —  they’ll be featured on YouTube’s homepage. This show has given me us so much; let’s give back with some click-click-clicks! Also, it’s a lesbian web series. Visibility vigilantes unite!

Series co-creator Susan Miller sent over this photo from the finale, and oh, how it makes my heart thump-thump.
