So much news about so many of my favorite shows! I've noticed that my TWoP News installments are more sci-fi centric than other people's. Is it luck that I get the good stuff, or is it just me being a massive nerd? I say both! Read on.
Whoever came up with the brilliant idea to put Janice Dickinson and Stephen Baldwin on the same show together deserves an Emmy. And whoever thought it would be a good idea to put them both on a conference call together deserves whatever award is given out to conference call coordinators. (A Groupie?) Listening to the two of them go back and forth, weighing in on Sanjaya, Speidi and Starbucks, almost makes me want to tune in and watch every episode of this show. And considering that I'm pretty sure these two will go all the way, I'll have to watch every episode, too. Luckily, Speidi told Janice they'll be dropping out early to do other stuff, so at least I won't have to watch a Pratt be crowned champion. Read more below!
Another slow news day. I think it is going to be a very long summer for TWoP News. Is it wrong that I kind of miss the days of daily updates on whether Simon or Kara would leave American Idol, or reading stories about Paula? At least there was some Idol news today.
So apparently, the news that Twitter has signed up with a production company to make a competitive television show is not true. In truth, Twitter has made agreements with a whole bunch of production companies, and not just one, and there are probably more shows in the works that they don't even know about yet. While the stalker-sounding "putting ordinary people on the trail of celebrities" format could be a winner, we came up with a few more Twitter-based game shows that we think would do gangbusters.
It's been a busy week with all the networks announcing their fall lineups and the midseason programming they've got on tap. While some shows didn't get picked up (Samantha Who?, My Name Is Earl, According to Jim), others found new homes (like Medium, which is now smartly paired with Ghost Whisperer on CBS) and many others got bumped to new nights and times. It's a lot to take in, but here were the highlights of this fall preview week.
