Sewn up: The USA Network has ordered a 16-episode fourth season of the original drama "Suits."

Season three continues in early 2014, following the Olympics, with six episodes featuring guest star appearances by Michael Phelps and Gabriel Macht's father, Stephen Macht ("The Monster Squad," "General Hospital"). Picking up in the wake of an emotional and shattering murder trial, Harvey and Jessica address the firm's future, while Louis threatens to expose the truth about Mike.

"Rock" solid: TNT has ordered a new series starring and executive-produced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who most recently headlined TNT's "The Hero." In "In Wake Up Call," Johnson will lend a helping hand to everyday people who are facing enormous challenges in their lives. TNT has ordered eight one-hour episodes.

Interesting "Development": Bravo's "Inside the Actors Studio," hosted by James Lipton, brings together cast members and the creator of "Arrested Development" at 8 p.m. Nov. 7.

The series has won six Primetime Emmy awards including "Outstanding Comedy Series" in 2004 and Time Magazine included it in its "All-Time 100 TV Shows" list.

Lipton, who has a recurring guest role on "Arrested Development" as Prison Warden Stefan Gentiles, will be joined by Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter and creator Mitch Hurwitz.

In the episode, Hurwitz unveils his real-life inspiration behind the Banana Stand and the personal meaning behind the name "Maeby."
