joy-behar-current-tv-gi.jpgBite-sized TV news, including items on Cee Lo Green and a dubious achievement for "Game of Thrones." Enjoy:

- "The View" co-host Joy Behar, who exited her evening HLN show last year, has a new gig at Current TV. She'll host a daily news-and-talk show that touches on "relevant topics that impact the American zeitgeist." The show premieres in the fall, but Behar will be a guest host for Eliot Spitzer's "Viewpoint" the week of June 18. [ Current]

- Another "NCIS" regular is returning to the fold for the show's 10th season. Rocky Carroll has signed a new deal to remain on the CBS drama, joining the recently re-upped David McCallum. Negotiations with regulars Sean Murray, Pauley Perrette and Michael Weatherly are ongoing. [ TVLine]

- The increasingly ubiquitous Cee Lo Green will pop up on TV Land's new comedy "Soul Man" later this summer. The show stars Cedric the Entertainer as a former R&B singer-turned-preacher; Green will guest star as a rival minister who's stealing members of Cedric's congregation. [ EW]

- "Game of Thrones" has the, uh, honor of being the most-pirated TV series of the 2011-12 TV season, averaging close to 4 million illegal downloads per episode. "How I Met Your Mother" is No. 2 on the list; "The Big Bang Theory," "House" and "Mad Men" round out the Top 5. [ TorrentFreak]

- MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan is leaving the cable news channel later this month. Ratigan, who has hosted an afternoon show for the past three years, says he wants to take time to figure out what his next move will be. [ The New York Times]
