I was going to put where she belongs, but maybe where I can tolerate her is more accurate. I just didn't buy her recent portrayal as a mean tabloid magazine editor, perhaps it is just my small mind not being able to see her as anything but Monica Gellar for the rest of her life, but Ted Danson sold the transition from chummy bartender Sam Malone to villainous CEO Arthur on Damages, so I'm thinking its got something to do with Courteney. Anyway, Cox is on a new comedy about a 40-year-old with a 17-year-old son who is newly single. It is unsurprisingly called Cougar Town.
I'm really not sure what to think about the news that Fox has picked up a new show by Arrested Development
creator Mitchell Hurwtiz. The still-untitled show boasts a coupla AD
's original directors, which bodes well for the general awesomeness of the program, but the plot's description has me scratching the old headfordshire in confusion. NY Mag's Vulture blog
spoke to producer Jeff Rake, who says the show is a "high-octane action dramedy" (hmmmmm?) about "a Pentagon-based inventor who decided he couldn't live another day standing on the sidelines while Rome burns and accordingly sets out to put his inventions to very real use, behind the backs of friends, family and the entire U.S. government." (Double hmmmmmmm????!) But! He adds that "The heart and fun of the show is the lead character, who, while a badass in his own way, is a very grounded, relatable guy." Huh. Sounds ... confusing, am I right?
As you may have seen, Amy Poehler is leaving Saturday Night Live. Not only is she becoming a for-real "baby mama" with her husband Will Arnett, but once that's over she's gonna be starring in the new show from the creators of The Office. First of all, congratulations, Amy! The offspring of you and Arnett will be hysterically adorable, and your new show will be adorably hysterical. Second of all, this sucks. SNL just got a lot less adorable, and a whole lot less hysterical.
There are a lot of great things about summer. It's not cold outside anymore, your seasonal depression clears up all on its own, and you can give your Tivo a break because none of the important shows are on for a while! OK, OK, there are a few exceptions, but for every Mad Men
there are about a hundred I Love Money
s. Here are the reasons we're most excited for life to get back to normal next month, TV-wise.

First, news of a Hawaii 5-0
remake and now I hear ABC's turning JLo's rom-com from hell, Maid in Manhattan, into a series
? Wow, it's been a rough week. There is a silver lining, however. The pilot's writer Chad Hodge assures us, "The show is a different maid in a different Manhattan." Well thank god
, because those were the only two things wrong with the movie version. I was like, "Ugh! I'm over this maid! She's so maid-y, with the cleaning and the uniform-wearing, and stop it with the skyscrapers already! Oh! Would that those two things weren't before my eyes, I would be all over
this convoluted story and JLo's acting! Why is Ralph Fiennes in this?" the whole time.
I realize that just yesterday I said that I couldn't see myself getting into any more dance shows because the TV is so oversaturated with them at the moment... but then I saw that Chris Brown is getting his sexy smooth groove on and I might have changed my mind. It happens. Chris Brown is teaming up with Mark Burnett (reality show mastermind/guy who basically knows how to print money) and J.D. Roth (producer of Biggest Loser and host of that creepy show where they all had to live underground in a bunker) and basically the show will be You Got Served... please, oh, please let Shane Sparks be judging. That would just make me so freakin' happy. Even happier than the mere prospect that I get to stare at Chris Brown for an hour a week.
It is with sadness that we must now mourn the death of Sarah Jessica Parker's Mole. Mole, born in 1965 in Nelsonville, Ohio, made its debut on the lower quarter of Sarah Jessica Parker's face about two millimeters below the right corner of her mouth, and subsequently went on to star as Annie on Broadway, in the cult '80s show Square Pegs
, and opposite a youthful Helen Hunt in the movie Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
. In the late '80s, Mole dated notorious bad boy Robert Downey, Jr. but wisely severed ties with the troubled actor in order to focus on its career. It also had a relationship with the late John F. Kennedy, Jr.

I'm so confused! Is Fox a soul-less trash receptacle for right-wing news media and dehumanizing reality shows or a haven for groundbreaking comedy programming?
Maybe, like that Young Republican you dated who could simultaneously defend Scalia and crack jokes that made you pee, it's a little bit of both?
It seems the suits over there are finally coming to their senses, because The Hollywood Reporter
is dishing dirt that the network inked a first-look deal with the one and only Jason Bateman to develop a slew of new series. This two years after they cancelled
the Bateman vehicle (and stroke of comic genius) Arrested Development
. But now the B-Man -- who recently directed the pilot for the new Fox comedy series Do Not Disturb
and will lend his voice to the upcoming Mitchell Hurwitz cartoon chucklefest Sit Down and Shut Up
-- is back in the saddle.
The recruiting process for a show like Celebrity Rehab
is much more discriminating than you might imagine. Like The Surreal Life
and other reality shows of its ilk, CR
requires a very specific mix of celebrities who fall into precise pop culture-based categories. The more a categories a celeb belongs to, the more incentive, to my mind, there is to cast him or her (and the more likely he or she will be to provoke all manner of drama on the show). Taking cues from last season's diverse lineup, I've devised a crib sheet of pre-req's that stars must satisfy to be eligible for the show from here on out.

A marginally less disappointing crop of commercials than previous years', overall; Keckler reviews the standouts, after the jump.
