Today's TWoP News: July 8, 2010

No real big news stories today. Oh, what's that? You heard that nominations for some fancy (but not soul-suckingly pretentious! Looking at you, Oscars) awards show were announced this morning? And that they actually kind of, dare we say it -- made sense? Well aren't you on top of things. Here's our take on it. On to other must-knows of the day, including an imminent farewell to Mr. Jack Donaghy, a permanent place in TV Land (and our receptive hearts) for Betty White, and a questionable but lucrative stint in rehab for notorious kidnappee Jeremy London.

Alec Baldwin, who has already won two Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes for his portrayal of endearingly pompous GE executive Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock, implied in a CNN interview earlier this week that he'll be done with the character once his contract expires in 2012. He supposedly needs a life outside of winning everything, every time. Imagine.

Another much-loved character despite blatant self-aggrandizement? Rachel Berry from Glee. Lea Michele says that though an opportunity to come back to New York and reprise Barbra Streisand's iconic turn as Fanny Brice in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl would be an "incredible role," she needs to make sure Rachel graduates from high school first. But the real concern here is: do these William McKinley kids even go to class?

Olivia Munn talks candidly about the feminist outrage caused by her recently landed gig on The Daily Show as senior Asian correspondent. Too bad no amount of mudslinging will change the fact that she is probably just better than you.

Comic brilliance in the form of I-hope-I'm-that-funny-when-I'm-90 Betty White will grace our screens for at least another season, as TV Land's Hot in Cleveland will return for round two in January.

Team CoCo, rejoice! As if his Emmy nod this morning wasn't vindication enough, the New York Times reports that Jay Leno's much-disputed return to The Tonight Show is reaping less-than-stellar results compared to his second quarter numbers two years prior.

Jeremy London -- recovering drug addict, supposed victim of kidnapping while voluntarily taking pills and smoking crack during the same incident, model citizen of humanity -- will seek treatment on Celebrity Rehab and be paid $40,000 for his appearance. We're guessing this is one type of employment that isn't too strict on background checks.
