NBC is doing something awesome. I'm serious!
For the first time in ages, I can report good news from NBC. After this season of The Apprentice limps to its finish, the network will turn the 10 PM Thursday night slot into the third hour of its comedy block, and move the whole night all around. It will go: Community at 8, Perfect Couples (the ensemble sitcom Olivia Munn is in) at 8:30, The Office at 9, Parks & Recreation at 9:30, 30 Rock at 10, and Outsourced at 10:30. Also, The Event is really pulling a Flashforward and going away entirely between January and March, because we're the only ones who like that show, and even then it's mostly only to laugh at it. Poor Jason Ritter. Poor, unfortunately-bearded Jason Ritter.
The Skating with the Stars pros may be nobodies, but at least the judges are Johnny Weir and Dick Button! Sadly, the third judge is some choreographer and not Elvis Stojko like I wanted, because obviously ABC has something against Canadians. I blame Jillian Harris.
Can't believe Bristol Palin is still on Dancing With the Stars? Host Tom Bergeron has a message for you: "Fuck you." Really, he said that. Well, his full statement was: "I'm a liberal Democrat, and I state that proudly. But I have no patience with my friends who believe there is a conspiracy keeping Bristol on the show... My response to that is similar to my response to the midterm elections. I'll say, 'OK, right. So who did you vote for instead of Bristol?' 'Uh, well, I don't vote!' 'Well, then, f*ck you.' ... If you don't participate to create a different outcome -- and this can be true in national politics or a TV reality show -- then don't piss and moan if you don't like the way it's playing out." We suddenly wish Tom had an MSNBC talk show.
One of the Discovery Channels is going to air a special about a charity group called "Hookers for Jesus" (natch) this December, but it's not as much fun as it sounds -- it's about an ex-hooker who turns other hookers into ex-hookers. And now that I know that, I'm going to stop talking about it forever now.
Remember a couple months ago, when some source at NBC said they were making a Survivor-meets-The Bachelor reality show? Well, that show is official now, and it has a name: Love in the Wild. Can't wait 'til Oxygen gets the "fat" version in two years -- More to Love in the Wild.
Taylor Momsen used to be four years old, and she was so much less horrible then! Watch, as she adorably injects sodium into pieces of chicken in her Shake N' Bake commercial from the '90s.
