It's Wednesday, which means that I'm just sitting here trying to will the time to move faster (where's Faraday when I need him?) so that I can get home to indulge in a gluttonous amount of TV, including (but not necessarily limited to) Lost, American Idol, Biggest Loser, Top Chef, Little Miss Perfect and Man v. Food. I have a problem. Do you think Faraday could also find a way to invent a DVR that can record like four things at once? That'd be helpful too. Anyway, to help make the time pass a little more quickly, here's some news.
Andy Richter got a new job! And it's kind of like his old job... but with less actual work involved. Good for him. That's living the American Dream. He's going back to work for Conan, but he won't be in his old sidekick role. Instead he'll be announcing and maybe doing some comedy sketches. Sounds good. Now if he could get a day job on a TV show that lasts more than a handful of episodes, then I'd be really happy.
In the dumb idea of the day category, NBC is considering adapting the British reality show I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here. Yes. ABC already tried this -- unsuccessfully -- a few years ago with such stellar talent as J.Lo's ex husband and Melissa Rivers and it was painful. Did NBC learn nothing from its foray into Celebrity Circus this summer?
L.L. Cool J is heading to TV. He's going to be a "tough but charming" Navy SEAL on the upcoming NCIS spinoff. Which is probably exciting to some people out there...
In other ridiculously nonsensical news of the day, Smallville got renewed. CW decided to give it a ninth season. It also inexplicably renewed the never-ending series One Tree Hill. Supernatural, Gossip Girl, Top Model and even 90210 got nods for next season.
Phil Keoghan is going on an Amazing bike ride. The Aussie host is going cross-country to convince people not to be so fat and lazy, and to raise money for charity. Do you think people will start riding with him? Like in Forrest Gump? I have to admit it is tempting...
