Russell BrandRussell Brand's TV show has been cancelled. Brand X, the comedian's late night talk show on FX, will not be renewed for a third series although the actor will work on other projects for the channel, including a "scripted live-action comedy."

"I don't think we're going to bring Brand X back. I think we're going to do another show with Russell that's going to be a scripted, live-action comedy. So the relationship is going to continue," said Joh Landgraf, who was promoted to CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions this week.

Russell's new show for the channel is expected to be similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm and will be loosely based on his own life.

Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell is set to fill the gap left by Brand X and according to Mr. Landgraf, host Kamau and executive producer Chris Rock were "ready to convert to a daily show" and "we saw more potential and more upside [in Totally Biased] in the audience reaction."

Stephen King

"Justified, Bates Motel, The Walking Dead. The best show of the year is The Americans. I don't watch Mad Men. I think it’s basically soap opera, and if I want soap opera, I watch Revenge. That show is crazy, but they have great clothes."

Evan Peters and Emma RobertsEmma Roberts is set to join the cast of American Horror Story: Coven.

The 22-year-old actress - whose Fox pilot Delirium was not picked up - is close to signing a deal to star in the third season of Ryan Murphy's FX drama alongside her boyfriend Evan Peters, according to TVLine. Emma will join fellow newcomers Kathy Bates and Gabourey Sidibe and returning castmembers Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy and Lily Rabe.

Although it will focus on witches, Ryan recently promised the third season of the show will be more upbeat than before. "It's a really cool story that we've been talking for a couple years, and this seemed to be the year to do it. What season three is about is more historical in nature. I'm also interested in getting into a horror romance. That's certainly something that's going to be in the water for season three. You're going to see a very different tone in season three, but that's the joy of the show. I think as a person right now I do feel lighter and wanting to embrace something a little bit more fun," he said.

Kathy BatesKathy Bates has joined the cast of American Horror Story.

The Misery actress will star in the third season of the show as the frenemy of Jessica Lange's character, and creator Ryan Murphy promises she will be a "bad, bad woman":

"Oh, Kathy's never [played] someone this bad. Her [character] is a bad, bad woman! [The character is] five times worse than [her] Misery character -- which is why she liked it. When I pitched this to Kathy, her mouth was drop-jawed because what I was pitching actually happened. It's a true event ... You'll see. It's some good stuff."

Kathy revealed late last year she was looking forward to returning to work after taking time off to undergo a double mastectomy following her breast cancer diagnosis: ''After much consideration, I underwent a double mastectomy. Luckily, I don't have to undergo radiation or chemo. My family call me Kat because I always land on my feet and thankfully this is no exception. My doctors have assured me I'm going to be around for a long time. I'm looking forward to getting back to work doing what I love."

American Horror Story: AsylumAmerican Horror Story has been renewed for a third series.

The show - created by Glee showrunner Ryan Murphy and featuring Zachary Quinto, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Adam Levine - will return for a new 13-episode season in 2013. "With American Horror Story: Asylum, [executive producers] Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have raised the bar in every way from Murder House. And their original idea -- the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast - has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting," FX president John Landgraf said in a statement.

Season two Asylum is up 19 per cent in viewers over Murder House.

Zachary recently revealed he was thrilled he decided to return for American Horror Story: Asylum. The star was initially hesitant about returning to the series which this year changed location and characters from a haunted Los Angeles mansion to an institution for the criminally insane in the 1960s, but is delighted Ryan talked him into it. "I was [hesitant]. But once Ryan explained to me what he wanted to do, and we talked about how all of us would play different characters, it became infinitely more appealing to me. I'm so glad I decided to double down," he explained.
