Either I am an insanely gullible April Fool's victim, or these are today's real TV news stories.
Precious star Gabourey Sidibe will be hosting Saturday Night Live. My question is: Will Kenan be dressed as Mo'Nique for the entire episode? Probably.
WE is coming out with what is essentially a senior citizen version of Jersey Shore. Set to premiere April 28th, Sunset Daze focuses on sassy old Gail Leibowitz as she romps around her retirement community. The series even has its own page over at WE, so I'm inclined to think it's real. I have no either whether or not I'll hate this show, but I'll definitely watch it for the sake of journalism. And if Leibowitz is anything like my Bubby, I will love her and call her once a week.
True Blood's Anna Paquin (aka my second favorite Sookie) came out as a bisexual to support equal rights for LGBT. Looks like someone's riding Ricky Martin's coattails! Just kidding! Go Anna! I actually liked that ridiculous dress you wore at the Globes!
Monica Breen and Alison Schapker, former showrunners of Brothers & Sisters are now becoming co-executive producers on Fringe. I realize how random that sounds, but the ladies used to work under J.J. Abrams on both Alias and Lost, so it's not that out of nowhere.
High School Musical is getting a Sharpay movie spinoff. Ashley Tisdale will be back playing the lead, but sadly, there's no Zefron, so we can just pretend this doesn't exist.
And finally, here's a nice little collection of the best TV-related April Fool's gags on the Internet today. I find it depressing, because now I really want that Dharma clock!
