Apparently Jessica Simpson is still "in." The singer/actress was spotted at New York Fashion Week beside Nina Garcia, Michael Kors and Heidi Klum as the guest judge on the upcoming season finale of "Project Runway." No word what say dad Joe Simpson will have in choosing the winner. [ US]

Therapy can get expensive, so it's a good thing HBO is only an extra $10 or $20 a month. Psychiatry serial "In Treatment" just made an appointment for Season 3. Starting October 25, the network will air back-to-back episodes at 9 p.m. ET on Mondays and Tuesdays. Season 3 marks a lighter load for the series, which originally boasted 5 original episodes a week. [ HBO]

And speaking of return dates, fans of SyFy's "Caprica" won't have to wait until 2011 for the second half of Season 1 after all. Producer Jane Espenson tweeted the good news today that the show will be back October 5. [ Twitter]

Remember yesterday's speculation about Jennifer Morrison ("House") joining "How I Met Your Mother" as a major recurring love interest for Ted (Josh Radnor)? Speculation no more. She'll make her play to be Ted's baby early on in Season 6. [ EW]

For the 5 or 6 of you who think Bravo doesn't air enough of the "Real Housewives" franchise, Christmas just came early. The Orange County, New York and New Jersey editions of the series start local syndication on September 13. [ Futon Critic]

There's no rest for the weary -- or J.J. Abrams. The TV and film producer/director/scribe might have yet another new TV series on the horizon. He's currently shopping around a thriller by Jonah Nolan, brother and collaborator of "Dark Knight" and "Inception" director Christopher Nolan. Sounds like an ace in the hole. [ EW]
