walking dead woman 320 CBS plans celebrity switcheroo show; zombie invasion set for TuesdayMini lasagna-esque TV news bites for your case of the Mondays:

Is your name Michael Bolton (like that guy in “Office Space”)? Well, you could swap your life for the singer’s and vice versa. CBS’ “The Same Name” is a celebrity life switcheroo show in which the star will have to perform the day-to-day tasks/jobs with the regular Joe with whom he shares his name. [The Live Feed]

Have your Zombie Apocalypse plan in order on Tuesday. In advance of AMC’s debut of “The Walking Dead” on Halloween, the network is kicking off a global zombie invasion stunt (we’re so happy to have just typed that) beginning at daybreak in Taipei and Hong Kong on Tuesday (Oct. 26) and moving across the globe, culminating at the Los Angeles premiere.

Showtime is loading up on guest stars. “Ugly Betty’s” Judith Light will sub for Blythe Danner as one of Peter Facinelli’s lesbian moms (with Swoozie Kurtz) for the upcoming third season of “Nurse Jackie.” Over on “Shameless,” “Prison Break’s” Robert Knepper will appear in two episodes as a guy who had a scam going with William H. Macy’s character. [Deadline]

Oops, parody is not the same as stealing. The “South Park” guys apologize for their recent episode “Insheeption,” in which it used portions of dialogue from CollegeHumor.com’s video “Inception Characters Don’t Understand Inception.” Says Matt Stone: “It’s just because we do the show in six days, and we’re stupid and we just threw it together. But in the end, there are some lines that we had to call and apologize for. [It] was a mistake, and it was an honest mistake.” [New York Times]

Showtime’s second season of the “Dexter” webisodes is up. The six chapters of “Dexter Early Cuts: Dark Echo” cover Dexter’s medical student years during which he finds out another student ahs witnessed one of his kills and has started copycat murders of his own. [Showtime]

“The Real Housewives” network is here. Okay, not really, but it’s practically true. Bravo has announced that it’s expanding to five nights of original programming starting Nov. 7 with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” anchoring Sunday nights, followed by Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens: Live.” The rest of the week: “Thintervention” Mondays, “Millionaire Matchmaker” Tuesdays, “Top Chef Just Desserts” Wednesdays and “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and another “Watch What Happens: Live” on Thursdays. [Bravo]

“Family Guy” writer and voice of Lois, Alex Bornstein, has signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to develop, write and executive produce two pilot scripts — one animated, one comedy — in which she may co-star. [The Hollywood Reporter]

NBC has snagged two projects. “Tommy’s Little Girl” is a drama from Jamie Foxx that stars Selma Blair as a mafia daughter who was hidden in an orphanage when her family was slain by a rival crime boss. She grows up to be an attorney who moonlights as a vengeful killer. “Life Is Good” (from “Hangover 2” writer Scot Armstrong and the creative team behind “Unhitched”) is a comedy Andy, a husband and father to two young girls who suddenly discovers he’s also the dad of 19-year-old mixed race son Dru.
