Today's TWOP News: July 21, 2010

Why isn't there a talk show with Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Leah Remini, and other random women? When will there be a reality show about taxidermy? Which of the Jersey Shore juicebags (juiceheads + douchebags) are returning to Sleazeside Heights for Season 3? All your pondering (and kinda weird) questions answered here in today's news...

Filling the time slot for soap As the World Turns, CBS will have a talk show with random B and C-list women (Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete, Marissa Jaret Winokur), not at all resembling The View (difference: filmed in LA). I really can't tell yet who will be the Hasselbeck idiotic quote-spouting machine of the show, but we'll be on the lookout.

As difficult as it will be to replace the only blunt and honest judge from American Idol, Fox has met with a few choices that are not only actual (and talented) singers (judging a singing competition? unheard of!), but they are also familiar with being on television themselves. Chris Isaak and Harry Connick Jr. are being considered to attempt to fill the void that Simon Cowell will leave behind on the 10th season. Not surprising for a man whose ego size competes on a daily basis with the size of his combover, Donald Trump is vying for the spot himself, which if granted, would probably make people wish even trainwreck Paula Abdul was still a judge.

Hate her or love her, Daily Show's new Asian correspondent, Olivia Munn, will be on NBC's Chuck, as an intimidating CIA agent that shows up Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Morgan (Joshua Gomez) skills-wise. Are there any more random show appearances she won't decline? She's clearly executing the don't-say-no-to-a-cameo methods of Betty White and Jane Lynch.

Speaking of geriatrics, 67-year-old former Dallas Cowboys' coach Jimmy Johnson will be competing on the next season of Survivor in Nicaragua, making him the oldest (and one of the wealthiest) contestant on the series. Good news for Giants' fans like myself, but I think it may be a little wrong for me to revel in an AARP subscriber getting his ass kicked by nature.

Thanks to MTV's parent-spoiling-child ways, the Jersey Shore whiners have received the pay increase in their contract and resumed filming, much to my dismay. Everyone will be returning for the third season except Angelina, which would be good news if I could tell the difference between any of the busted orange ladies of this trashtastic show.

Hole in the Wall, the Japanese-based show once featured on Fox where spandex-clad idiots try to form shapes of the spaces in a wall with their body in order to clear through it (I know, you're thinking, "why was this EVER cancelled?") will be revived by Cartoon Network. As enticing as this sounds, you're probably better off just getting your Tetris fix on your cell phone.

Amidst its lineup of shows about families with lots of kids, families that own bakeries, and families with little people, TLC will target a new (twisted) demographic with the installment of a reality series revolved around taxidermy. I wonder if anyone featured on the show will be a veteran of A&E's Hoarders, based purely on the fact that those catastrophic messes they call homes always have an inhumane amount of dead cats and stuffed animals. Hey, it's a thought.
