'Up All Night' snags Dean Winters; 'Web Therapy' gets a second season on Showtime

dean-winters-gi.jpgThe latest serving of TV Snacks includes items on "House," Aaron Sorkin's new HBO show and a couple of CBS midseason series. Eat up:

- The Brinkley family is growing a little on "Up All Night." The NBC comedy has booked Dean Winters ("30 Rock," "Rescue Me") for a guest role as Chris' ( Will Arnett) rather competitive brother. (Kudos on that casting, by the way -- Winters and Arnett could easily pass as siblings). Winters will first appear on the show early next year. [ TV Guide]

- Showtime has ordered a second season of "Web Therapy," Lisa Kudrow's online-to-on-air comedy about a not entirely competent or qualified therapist. Guests for the second season include Meryl Streep, Conan O'Brien and Minnie Driver. [ Showtime]

- Both scripted shows that CBS has on tap for midseason have changed their titles a little. Rob Schneider's comedy, formerly "¡Rob!," has dropped the Spanish punctuation and will simply go with "Rob." The rookie-cops drama "The 2-2" is now "NYC 22." [ CBS]

- In other title-change news, HBO's Aaron Sorkin pilot about a cable news channel is likely to change its name from "More As This Story Develops" to the more straightforward "Newsroom." [ TVNewser]

- Remember "House's" green-card wife from last season? She's still in the picture. Karolina Wydra is set to make a return appearance on the FOX drama later this season -- and yes, she and House ( Hugh Laurie) are still married. [ TVLine]
