Woohoo, it's Friday! And it's finally time to ask the question that's been on everyone's minds (okay, maybe not everyone's, but still!) all month: who watches the Watchmen? The answer: not you, if you're reading this. So kill a couple minutes with these TV newsbites before heading off into the night to check out Billy Crudup's giant, blue naked body, or get drunk, or whatever else you may have planned for the weekend. Here at TWoP, we don't judge.
The Dancing with the Stars curse has claimed yet another victim! Now Nancy O'Dell has been forced to call it quits due to knee injuries that will require surgery. The producers of the show have stated that they are going to have to rethink their rehearsal process, but note that older performers who "know their limits" have been able to avoid injury on the show. So does this mean that from now on the cast of Dancing should all be over the age of 60? That would certainly be an interesting development. And one with a profound effect on the costume department, we hope.
Seinfeld is coming back to television! And no, I'm not talking about a reunion show! Or any sort of new comedy pilot! Or The Marriage Ref! No, I'm talking about the fact that the cast of Seinfeld will be making a group cameo on the next season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. I actually sort of thought this had happened already, but learned that in fact the four have not made a television appearance all together since Seinfeld ended. See? It's important!
Wishing you could catch the ladies of The View outside the show's timeslot? Whoopi and Barbara certainly get around, and now Sherri Shepherd will star in a pilot for Lifetime based on her life, meaning that the series will involve Sherri's character allowing her husband's mistress and child to move in with her. Gosh, who hasn't that happened to?
Apparently Conan O'Brien has yet to watch an episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The reason? Not jealousy, but the fact that Conan is "too old" to stay up until 12:30. Well, he is 45... Wow, in a few years he'll be able to join the cast of Dancing with the Stars!
Hoping the residual drama from The Bachelor will be coming to an end sometime soon? Hahaha...please. The latest news, straight from Melissa's interview on Ellen, is that she has a new man! And his name is Ty... but don't worry, he's not Jason's 4-year-old son. (Eeew, what's wrong with you?) Not to be outdone, Jason and Molly showed up on Ellen a mere day after Melissa's appearance to give his side of the story. When when when are we going to be done with these people?
Rorschach from Watchmen is coming to TV! But not as a masked vigilante with a penchant for brutal justice, unfortunately. Instead, Jackie Earle Haley will be joining the cast of Human Target as an information gatherer for the mysterious Chance, who assumes the identities of marked men to help them to safety for a price. Maybe JEH could still bring the shapeshifting mask, though?
