Today's TWoP News: December 28, 2010

Today's TWoP News: December 28, 2010

Same-sex sparks fly on Glee (the non-cheerleader kind) for Kurt and Blaine, and Cablevision makes a deal to air Oprah's new network (though I can't imagine them having much choice against the ruler of the TV world), in today's news...

Chris Colfer's and Darren Criss's characters on Glee will finally become more than friends during the Valentine's Day episode, when they'll serenade each other with Robin Thicke's "When I Get You Alone" in front of a Gap store. I can't imagine the over-the-top fashionable Kurt ever being caught dead near a Gap, but I'm sure they paid enough for product placement to convince Fox otherwise.

Just in time before Oprah's new network, OWN, launches on January 1st, Cablevision has signed a deal with them to carry it. Further allowing Oprah's control of the world in 2011.

It's a possibility that this may be the last SAG Awards, with the AFTRA union dominating many of the major television series categories. TV shows are no longer entirely represented by SAG as they were before the writers strike, so a merger of the two unions in 2011 could result in a new awards show. Either way, I'm sure it won't break the tradition of ridiculously unnecessary nominations and snubs.

And speaking of unnecessary SAG nominations, TV Land will be airing a marathon of Hot in Cleveland on New Year's Day. So if your resolution is to watch more bad television shows, you could start the year off abiding by that.

After airing a similar joke video of Sarah Palin shooting down Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer which was first shown on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan O'Brien apologized on his show to Kimmel. What a nice thing to do, even when he wasn't initially aware that he had stolen that bit. I mean, it's not like he stole his entire show and timeslot away from the guy. I can't imagine anyone not apologizing in that scenario.
