Today's TWoP News: Friday, November 6, 2009

As long as Joss Whedon TV series are getting unceremoniously canceled (so, forever), there will always be comic book sequels to supply a much-needed fix. And while we're sure a Dollhouse comic will be a necessity in the future, in the meantime, you can enjoy more Dr. Horrible. Plus, what movie star is Jack Donaghy making out with now?

NPH fans, find out where your nearest comic book shop is, because Joss Whedon's brother and co-writer Zack has penned a prequel to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog that chronicles the character's first meeting with Captain Hammer. "Bam," said the lady!

HBO is developing a drama about a woman undergoing gender transformation into a man, called simply T. Let's hope they don't put T on opposite V, or I am going to have to make a difficult decision.

Children's TV show host Fred "Mister" Rogers has received a statue in his hometown of Pittsburgh of him tying his shoe. Meanwhile, the Benny Hill stamp has been rejected in Britain because his chasing of bikini-clad ladies goes against the British Post Office's rules about harassment in the work place. Guys, guys, guys -- you're not giving Benny Hill a job, you're giving him a stamp.

It has been confirmed, visually, that Julianne Moore will play Alec Baldwin's new love interest on 30 Rock for four episodes. I'm willing to bet she won't wear a Battlestar Galactica T-shirt, though.

24 alumni Reiko Aylesworth and Sarah Wynter have both signed up for recurring roles on Damages. Evacuate New York, before terrorists and/or Jack Bauer show up.

Tracy Jordan tried to kill Betty White on a recent 30 Rock, but he should have gone after another Golden Girl. Rue McClanahan recently underwent heart bypass surgery, but is reportedly doing well. Keep Tracy far, far away.

The Onion, America's leading satirical newspaper, will bring its Onion Sports Network to Comedy Central as a half-hour scripted show mocking sports and its fans. Now the network has something to air after its 800th broadcast of Major League!

The Cartoon Network is developing two live-action series: one about a kid who's a prisoner at a mysterious prep school and another about a kid who investigates mysteries at a Washington D.C. museum. So, basically, The Prisoner Jr. and Bones Jr. Hopefully, the Bones Jr. characters won't hallucinate and see cartoon characters, but given the network, we aren't placing any bets.
