A female football coach will replace Glee's Coach Ken Tanaka and SYTYCD EP and judge Nigel Lythgoe may return to Idol to get rid of the current judges...this isn't just wishful thinking, this is today's news...
McKinley High adds a little estrogen to its football team -- and no, I don't mean a sex change for Finn (what would Kurt think?!) -- actress Dot Jones will play a new football coach on Glee, replacing Patrick Gallagher. In other Glee casting news, iCarly's Chord Overstreet will portray Sam, who looks up to Finn until he becomes his competition. If this role doesn't work out for him, he can always fall back on starting a crappy boy band with a name like that.
Nigel Lythgoe, executive producer and judge on So You Think You Can Dance, may go back to his former job as EP on American Idol. If he does return, it's likely he will replace all of the current judges, though he can rule out Justin Timberlake and Elton John, because they're too busy leading actual successful careers. Although that's promising news to revive the 10-year-old reality competition, I suggest a swifter solution: replace the whole damn show and stop televising Ryan Seacrest's increasing love for himself.
As if the new 90210, wasn't painful enough, original 90210 stars Luke Perry and Jason Priestley will team up to star in a western movie for the Hallmark channel. Like Jennifer Love Hewitt, at least they know their place in life for actors who peaked in the '90s: bad made-for-TV movies.
HBO's Broadway-themed The Miraculous Year has nabbed Oscar winner Susan Sarandon to play Patty Atwood, the play's director and choreographer. Based on its description, this show seems like a glimpse into the future of the Glee kids.
The O.C.'s Jeff Hephner will replace Ben Browder on CW's new series Hellcats. But this doesn't change the fact that this show is basically a TV version of another Bring It On storyline. I lost track -- have they surpassed American Pie in terrible straight-to-DVD films yet?
King of Queens' Leah Remini adds another CBS project to her résumé, signing up to star in a new half-hour comedy, because one unfunny CBS show wasn't enough for her. I'm sure CBS is in the process of looking for a fat husband now.
Jersey Shore gets a new cast member and she actually happens to be from New Jersey and is BFF with Snooki, who can use a friend after her brutally accurate NY Times profile from Sunday. I hope they do The Situation next.
