miranda cosgrove the good wife 'iCarly' is 'The Good Wife's' latest iClient, 'Sesame Street' spoofs 'True Blood'Though it’s way past their bedtime, here’s a particularly kid-centric serving of TV snacks. Now turn those lights off!

“iCarly” star Miranda Cosgrove is thankfully leaving the trashy antics that plague most child stars to the tube. She’ll play a troubled pop star in an upcoming episode of “The Good Wife,” who Alicia (Julianna Margulies) signs as a client after she’s charged with a DUI. (EW)

“Californication” set its Season 4 premiere date for January 9 — which is also the same night Showtime will debut new series “Shameless” (starring William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum) and Matt Leblanc’s “Episodes.” (Showtime)

Whoa, that was fast. J.J. Abrams’ potential series for “Lost” stars Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson has already landed at NBC, with a likely pilot commitment from the network. The duo could be back on the tube this time next year. [Deadline]

With the start of Season 41 of “Sesame Street” just around the corner, a fresh crop of celebrity cameos and pop culture parodies are popping up online. And while the latest, a muppet series called “True Mud,” is pretty hilarious — do “True Blood” references have any place in children’s programming? (Video below, via THR)
