Today's TWoP News: March 24, 2009

Today's TWoP News: March 24, 2009 Peter Krause's employed again, which is great, but you are not going to believe what bad idea express Dr. Cox just tied himself to the tracks in front of.

Aww, aren't Eddie Cibrian affair rumors spread by Leann Rimes's own publicists the best? 4.5 million idiots watched her crappy Lifetime movie on Saturday, and I was totally one of them. They solved the case of the stolen fishing rods with the power of their true love, people!

That uncomfortable-sounding 9/11-themed drama Back, starring Skeet Ulrich and Sherry Stringfield, has just added the incomparable John C. McGinley to its cast. McGinley will be playing the new husband of a 9/11 widow (Stringfield) who discovers her first husband (Ulrich) is not actually dead. See what I mean about uncomfortable? It's like Castaway with a bigger national exposed nerve being stabbed repeatedly in terrible taste.

Stephen Colbert has won yet another arbitrary battle with an unsuspecting foe -- after urging his viewers to write-in "Colbert" as the suggestion for the name of a room in NASA's international space station, he has won the contest, beating out the previous frontrunner "Serenity." I guess we know now whose fans would win in a Colbert/Whedon NASA write-in war. I'm actually surprised.

CBS has suckered three theme parks I've never heard of into turning Survivor into a stage show, with actors portraying "famous" contestants who I guess get the crowd to participate in Survivor-like challenges? Whatever, it's just a dumb Survivor thing. You get it.

I forgot that NBC was making a TV show out of Parenthood (yes, the Ron Howard movie), but they're still doing it, and while it may sound like a dumb idea on paper, Friday Night Lights creator Jason Katims is running the show, and the cast is shaping up to be nothing but delightful. Peter Krause will be playing the Steve Martin character, Maura Tierney is in negotiations for the Dianne Wiest character (electric ear cleaner! Aak!), Craig T. Nelson will be playing the family's patriarch, and, less delightfully, Dax Shephard will fill Tom Hulce's gambler addict role. You know who should play Cool? Bobbi Christina. My TV misses her.
