Today's TWoP News: May 4, 2011

Happy Star Wars Day everyone, may the fourth be with you! It's really too sad that not every holiday could be based around a terrible pun.

Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting the Tony Awards again this year. At this point, NPH would probably only have to stand on stage and smile at the camera and we would be happy with him hosting everything the next decade.

Remember when A&E at least pretended to be classy? Neither does A&E. Today they released a list of the shows they are working on for the next year, including a new Storage Wars. Although, I have to say, I am really looking forward to Family Bonding which looks like it involves handcuff and siblings.

In its quest to totally take over PBS's programing BBC America has announced plans for a late night comedy block. Don't worry though PBS, they can't take Lawrence Welk away.

MTV is yet again hoping that Jersey Shore is some kind of worm that can survive being cut up. The Situation is getting his own show. But is America ready for a solid half hour of ab pride and hot tub humping?

Just when it seemed like there weren't any more reality shows that could be spiced up with famous people, Celebrity Wife Swap has suddenly come into our lives. It's suddenly a huge disappointment that Gary Busey is single.

In a bid to attract stoned college students away from [adult swim] Jimmy Fallon is going to spend next week paying tribute to Bob Marley for the 30th anniversary of Marley's last concert. As excited as I am for some awesome covers by The Roots, I am scared of the prospect of Jimmy wearing a wig with dreads at any point during the week.
