Attention, attention everyone! Pushing Daisies news! About when ABC (bastards...) is airing the final episodes! Plus a little bit more, assuming you can actually read this through the tears I've brought on by mentioning Pushing Daisies' tragic, tragic cancellation. And we've also got a shout-out to President Obama, because his G-20 trip prevented him from interrupting your primetime television viewing this week and we know you missed him.
ABC has announced its summer lineup -- and they'll be airing the final episodes of Pushing Daisies starting Saturday, May 30 at 10PM. Also on the schedule are the back episodes of canceled Eli Stone and Dirty, Sexy Money, plus The Bachelorette starring the only lady finalist that Jason Mesnick didn't publicly humiliate and a series where couples date without seeing each other and we watch (or not...).
Because NBC wasn't having enough trouble replacing its 10PM lineup with Jay Leno, newly-timeslotted Law & Order: SVU may be in danger of losing stars Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay over contract negotiations. I personally think that without Detectives Benson and Stabler, NBC might as well cut their losses and fill the spot with...hey, how about Kings! Hahahaha just kidding, that makes too much sense.
Leonard Nimoy is behind Massive Dynamic! Okay not literally, Fringe fans, but he will play William Bell, the sinister corporation's founder and Walter Bishop's former lab partner at Harvard, in the May 12th finale episode. P.S. You can also see the former Mr. Spock as... Mr. Spock in the new Star Trek movie!
Fox has announced that Prison Break's series finale will air in a two-hour episode on May 15. And apparently, there will be "two major deaths!" Major!
And speaking of major (sorry...), Victoria Beckham is for some reason set to voice Queen Amphrite, goddess of the sea, on a summer 2010 episode of SpongeBob SquarePants. First, you may be wondering why SpongeBob is getting so many good guest stars lately -- Johnny Depp recently guest voiced for the April 17 episode. And second, you may be wondering how Posh Spice equates to Captain Jack Sparrow/Edward Scissorhands/any other Johnny Depp character in the world of the SpongeBob producers. The answer is: I don't know.
In other kid-related news but not in a good way, InTouch Magazine has reported that Octomom is filming a reality show - about her search for love! Think Jon & Kate Plus 8 plus six more kids meets The Bachelorette minus any semblance of normalcy or dignity, and that's only a teeny tiny fraction of the horribleness that this could potentially be. Luckily, Octomom (who InTouch reports has banned all use of that moniker on the show) denies these rumors -- though as we know, she's not always so good when it comes to truth-tellin'.
How about some news that won't make you want to vomit? (Best not to start Thirsty Thursday on empty, right?) Looks like SyFy (ugh, do I really have to type that?) has cast their 2010 Phantom miniseries: Ryan Carnes, a.k.a. Bree's gay son's boyfriend on Desperate Housewives in 2006, will play the purple-suited one while Isabella Rosselini has been tapped to play villain Lithia. Plus, they've released concept sketches of the costumes -- no more Spandex, people!
In case you haven't been getting enough Joan Rivers on The Celebrity Apprentice, I have good news! Joan has been chosen as the next subject of Comedy Central's Roast series, which doesn't make too much sense to me because isn't that woman basically roasting herself every time we see her? But hey, I'd rather watch that than sit through anything involving Dane Cook.
And finally, in case you weren't already convinced that Obama is the coolest man alive, it turns out he loves Entourage! And The Wire! 44 loves Entourage so much, in fact, that he apparently rearranged his campaign schedule so as not to miss an episode. And to this we say: Mr. President, buy yourself a TiVo. We think you've earned it.
