Today's TWoP News: February 24, 2011

R.I.P. short-lived TBS sitcom Glory Daze. Not enough viewers knew thee well.

TBS has canceled Glory Daze after only one season. A television series starring a group of macho guys didn't make it, but the Warblers and tune-loving misfits of Glee ride out to high ratings. Oh, how the tables have turned since high school.

MTV has resurrected Craig Wright back into television. Wright's penning a new comedy for MTV featuring five college graduates in Chicago struggling to find employment. Wright's last show, ABC's Dirty Sexy Money, was about an enormously wealthy, older family, but it tanked. Maybe he'll hit the mark this time going to the other end of the spectrum?

FOX has renewed Hell's Kitchen for two more seasons with Gordon Ramsey. Aren't we over this Top Chef knock-off by now? Or am I just a donut?

IFC has greenlit their original comedy series The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret for a second season. Bring back Will Arnett and Janeane Garofalo!

Leelee Sobieski has a cop-mate now. The Robert De Niro produced pilot Rookies has found its second cop in Adam Goldberg, who has been cast in the CBS cop drama. My high hopes for this show are slowly descending...

Melinda Clarke returns to CSI this April as sexy Dr. Lady Heather. Melinda Clarke? Sexy? Never seen that before. Zzzzzzz.

The Silver fox has found his executive producer. Jim Murphy is set to work on Anderson, a one-hour daily talk show starring Anderson Cooper this fall. New Rule: You don't get to title your talk show with just your first name unless you are a pop legend. Otherwise, it comes off as pretension.

Log onto Facebook to vote for your American Idol. Online voting will start next Wednesday. Welcome to the digital age, A.I.! It only took you ten seasons to get there.

MTV will launch digital music awards show the OMAs this April. They're keeping mum about what the "O" stands for. How about obnoxious for overhyping what will probably be a webcast C-rated award show? Educated guess.
