This fall season, there are some truly dreadful sitcoms slated: there's one with Reba playing a down-on-her-luck version of herself, one with aliens living amongst us and one with a monkey doctor. Yet despite all of those terrible premises, this simple show about best friends turned out to be the most excruciating pilot of them all.
I can't tell if this is tasteful or tasteless. Either way, I guess E! is going to hit the ratings jackpot.
There's been buzz about a musical episode of Ugly Betty for ages now, and the show even centered a whole episode around the Broadway production of Wicked but now there's talk right from the gossipy queens mouth. Michael Urie (aka Wilhelmina's bitchtastically gay assistant Marc) has been spreading the word that there could be an actual staged production of Ugly Betty heading towards Broadway, with singing and dancing and transvestites and fashion and magic and puppies or whatever. Urie even delightfully naively expressed hope that the cast -- who have a mixed amount of theater experience (Vanessa Williams rocked in Into the Woods and America Ferrara in Dog Sees God, an off-Broadway stage production of a twisted Peanuts cartoon) -- would star in the staged version. This is the most insanely awesome thing I've heard since they announced they were making a live-action Tetris game show.
