Old friends risen from the grave to haunt me

Huzzah for long-term televisory inter-series continuity, part one: Chi McBride will reprise his role of Steven Harper from "Boston Public" in an upcoming controversial episode of "Boston Legal," it's been announced. McBride will play a school principal who bans certain network news coverage on school grounds. The episode, entitled "Let Sales Ring," will air on SUNDAY, MARCH 13 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (An aside: Boston Public was on the air right around the time Stephen Harper came to national prominence. Hilarity, it might be imagined, ensued, if not terribly widely.) And part two: LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Noth's guest appearance this weekend on Law & Order: Criminal Intent is the start of something big. Noth, who left the original Law & Order 10 years ago, will become a regular on the spinoff beginning next season, series spokeswoman Pam Ruben Golum said Tuesday. In a perfect world, Peter MacNicol or Michael Moriarty would also be involved in one or the other of these stuntcasts, but I'm not complaining. (Especially since Moriarty is as much of a loon as Vincent D'Onofrio, and said instability seems to be most of the reason why he's getting half-bumped from L&O: CI.) (Via TV Tattle.)
