Kim Kardashian in Toronto, Conan’s first guests, Jersey Shore Season 3 and more

Kim Kardashian was in Toronto on Tuesday to help launch FusionBeauty’s “Objects of Desire” Holiday Collection and Illumifill, a line filling facial highlighter. I have no idea what all that stuff is, but it was nice to see her again. She hit up Sherway Gardens where she was greeted by fans and the media. You can check out my photos from the event here. Also, Miranda got a chance to do a quick interview, which you can read here. Kim’s next E! reality venture, Kourtney and Kim Take New York will premiere in early 2011. The series will focus on the sisters opening a new D-A-S-H store in Manhattan. Here are some of the pics.

The following night will have Tom Hanks, Jack McBrayer and Soundgarden. The rest of the week will feature Jon Hamm, Charlyne Yi, Fistful of Mercy, Michael Cera, Julie Bowen and Canadian Jon Dore. According to The Hollywood Reporter, TBS has also promised that there will also be some surprise guests and performances. The show will air in Canada on CTV.

Michelle Trachtenberg is set to star in Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s new series about a young criminology student who has a gift for profiling and a dark past. If picked up, the series which I’d like to call Dawn Sparks – the Spy would air on The CW.

— The CW is still looking for the next Buffy, according to Vulture, the network is developing two supernatural projects with female leads. Secret Circle would be the television adaptation of L.J. Smith’s novel (also wrote The Vampire Diaries series) about a Califonia teen who discovers that she’s a witch and will be penned by Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain who worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer with Joss Whedon. The series would be produced by Andrew Miller, who’s the mastermind behind the Imaginary Bitches web series which stars his wife, Eden Riegel (Heather, The Young and the Restless; ex-Bianca, All My Children).

— Canadian specialty network, Bite, gets a makeover tomorrow when it debuts its new fall lineup. The new focus will be comedy and they’ll be airing a 7 p.m. power block featuring It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Arrested Development. The Sunny episodes will air from the beginning, which is unfortunate because Showcase has kept Canadian viewers (who watch the show legally) really behind. Hopefully, Bite will add some more comedic programming in the near future. We’re still waiting for a Canadian network to pick up Chelsea Lately since Canwest’s E! shut down last year.

— While the second season of Jersey Shore comes to an end tonight, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that MTV will premiere the third season on January 6th.
