Today's TWoP News: April 18, 2011

Just like the news today, a lovely spring day always brings the promise of renewal.

You have probably never heard of him but Armondo Iannucci is the funny man behind both the UK show The Thick of It and IFC-fodder In the Loop. And now he's bringing his brand of political satire over to the states with a new show starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The show, Veep, will focus on Louis-Dreyfus as a senator who becomes the vice president and learns just how little she really has to do in her new position of almost power. I fully expect this show to enjoy a long run, and as long as Joe Biden is around they will always have good source material

BET has decided to renew The Game. And not only that, they are probably going to order 22 episodes instead of just 13. Let's just hope they don't try to raise production values though.

Also returning for another season are both of RuPaul's shows. Hopefully, this will be the year that RuPaul is able to convince the rest of the world that all reality competitions would be made better by having people lip sync for their lives.

For the first time in years NBC has shown that it might actually understand the American public by cutting down on the amount of time it will spend on coverage of the upcoming Royal Wedding. Now if they could only realize that no one cares about their sitcom stars from the 90s they might be able to figure out how to make people watch their shows.

Oxygen let us know today that season 7 of Bad Girls Club will be taking place in New Orleans. So this season we can rank just how bad the girls are by how tasteless their hurricane jokes are.
