Tonight, Robocop himself, Peter Weller, is guest-starring on Fringe. To promote the hugely geeky stuntcasting event, we hopped on a media conference call with the lovely man to hear all about the episode, how wonderful the cast and crew are, and why he thinks Darren Aronofsky's Robocop movie could suck. Very scientific highlights after the jump.
Glee news is so much more pleasant to report now that the show is back on. And I no longer get depressed hearing Madonna songs! Never leave us again, show!
Can you believe the series finale of Ugly Betty is tonight? Be sure to brace yourself for some tears! Get it? You get it.
My sincerest apologies: Los Angeles dominates the news today.
We're thrilled to report that TWoP has been recognized by the 14th Annual Webby Awards, the leading international award for achievement on the Internet, for both our website and our mobile site.

Before Jennifer Love Hewitt whispered to ghosts and lulled them into a sense of peace and tranquility with her heaving bosom, Matthew Fox tried the same thing, and it went about as well as you'd expect.
Coco has gone LoCo! Seriously, the man is insane. Also insane? Jon Gosselin. Also also insane? William Shatner. But we all knew that.
Post-Katrina New Orleans gets the David Simon treatment with HBO's Treme, a new series about one of the city's neighborhoods trying to rebuild after the disaster. The pilot aired last night, and at 80 minutes, it was a lot to take in, but much of it was pleasantly surprising. I expected it to be good, of course, considering the pedigree behind it and many of the actors cast (does it get better than Clarke Peters, Melissa Leo and John Goodman?), but I was blown away mainly by how joyful it managed to be despite the subject matter.
For months, rumors have abounded as to where Conan O'Brien would end up to start his new talk show. While it appeared as if it was going to be Fox, various affiliate issues bollixed the deal, leading Conan to his new home at... TBS? Apparently, current TBS talk show host George Lopez was willing to bump his own Lopez Tonight back an hour in order to give Conan the 11:00 time slot, but not every other basic-cable network was willing to make such a sacrifice. Here are some of the offers on the table that Conan felt it necessary to walk away from.
Happy Friday to you! Personally, my day has been a little loopy; I watched this clip from Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman earlier, so I'm feeling tense!
