You learn valuable lessons from Mad Men every day (don't have a heart attack while cheating on your wife, don't impregnate your coworker, don't work in an ad agency if you're a raging alcoholic) and now your kids can, too! Also, another BSG actor shows up on Dollhouse, and Sugar Ray likes cougars. It's an eclectic day in news.
Let's Make a Deal is officially the game show that just won't die. Wayne Brady will host the gazillionth (not an exaggeration, I swear) revival of the show, which will be conveniently taped in Las Vegas, the original hotbed for gambling and greed.
In other CBS news, the network announced that the series Flashpoint will return for nine more episodes later this season, although they don't yet have a time slot for the show. I've never seen Flashpoint but Canadian shows are welcome on my TV any day!
Even networks that thrive on reality TV love to hate on reality TV. E! is creating Reality Hell, which will mock other reality shows by featuring one unsuspecting contestant competing on a "reality show" that is actually a scripted program with a cast of actors. On second thought, this doesn't sound that different from other reality shows.
You know who doesn't hate reality TV? Sugar Ray. In fact, Mark McGrath said their song "She's Got The (Woo-Hoo!)" was inspired by Vicki Gunvalson of The Real Housewives of Orange County. I'm not sure what's more surprising -- the fact that someone wrote a song about Vicki, or the fact that Sugar Ray still exists.
In case you haven't figured it out yet, Joss Whedon really, really likes Battlestar Galactica. Michael Hogan (Colonel Tigh) will guest on the second episode of Whedon's Dollhouse next season, making him the fourth BSG cast member to appear on the show.
It seems everyone is addicted to the new MadMenYourself game -- even Big Bird. A future episode of Sesame Street will parody Mad Men in the same style as its Desperate Houseplants skit. This is awesome, even if it's guaranteed to be much more after school special than after work cocktail.
