Today's TWoP News: July 30, 2009

Today's TWoP News: July 30, 2009 Jillian Harris is writing a book. I have never wished for illiteracy so desperately in my entire life.

The Emmys are just on a damn housecleaning kick this year. Eight awards -- outstanding movie and miniseries; writing for dramatic series and movies/miniseries; directing for variety, music and comedy and movie/miniseries; and the supporting actor and actress awards in the longform arena -- and their acceptances will be pre-recorded and then edited into the broadcast in order to keep the speeches as short as possible and the show's boring parts to a minimum. Blasphemous and disrespectful to writers and everything, but holy crap, finally! Anything to make this show shorter!

Diane Keaton will lead up a new HBO comedy in which she plays some kind of combination of herself and Gloria Steinem. So she's a feminist, you see, but with turtlenecks. High concept. How much is Michael Bay kicking himself right now for not thinking of that?

House creator David Shore is rebooting The Rockford Files for NBC, because there are no original ideas left in this world.

I don't know why this keeps happening on days when TWoP News is my beat, but Joan Rivers found some people with access to publishing systems and instantly started trashing every famous person she's ever met again.

Jillian Harris is writing an anecdotal dating advice book based on her hot dog theory, because she's trying to kill Daniel.

Oh, and Kelsey Grammer can talk to the dead now.
