TWoP 10: Bubble Shows That Shouldn't Be Renewed

It's that time of year when networks are finalizing their fall line-ups and deciding which current shows to keep or cancel. And while we'd like to see underrated procedural Detroit 1-8-7 get another chance, as well as the ridiculous, nonsensical guilty pleasure Off the Map continue, there are a plenty of other "bubble" shows that truly deserve to get their bubbles burst, freeing their casts and producers to seek better luck elsewhere. Here are the ones that most need to be axed, for everyone's sake:

Fox: More Singing, More Dancing, More Action

Fox: More Singing, More Dancing, More Action

It's the start of upfront week, and while Fox revealed their schedule this morning, the presentation showing off their actual new programming until this afternoon. It took place at City Center in Manhattan, but thanks to the magic of the web, I got to watch it from my mostly comfy desk chair. It started off with a guide to surviving the onslaught of new TV. Using clips of Homer telling us about nutrition, Bones keeping us hip with lingo and something with The Family Guy's Peter. Then they revealed the stage, which was filled with Fox stars. People from each show came to the front and took a quick bow, while the announcer said their names. Or tried to. He brutalized everyone from Chi McBride to Tyler Labine to, most egregiously, Lie to Me's Brenda Hines. He (being Brendan) got a good laugh out of it. They all trickled off stage, leaving only Kiefer "Jack Bauer" Sutherland.

Balthazar Getty: Fired for Being a Slut (Basically)

Balthazar Getty: Fired for Being a Slut (Basically) The rumor that Balthazar Getty's gig on Brothers & Sisters is ending soon has been swirling around ever since he started being photographed smooching a topless Sienna Miller on the high seas months ago, and now Ausiello is reporting that it's pretty much officially true now. Well, it's still technically a rumor because ABC hasn't confirmed, but it's Ausiello and he knows things from time to time so I'm inclined to believe it.

Dee Snider is one Twisted Guest-Star

Dee Snider is one Twisted Guest-Star

If you haven't been watching IFC's Z Rock, about a rock band in New York City that plays gigs by night and kids' parties by day, you may want to tune in this Sunday. The show -- a hybrid of Flight of the Conchords, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Curb Your Enthusiasm, but with a lot fewer words in the title -- has a new guest-star in every episode, from rockers like Sebastian Bach and Dave Navarro to comedians like Dave Attell and Gilbert Gottfried, and this week's is no exception. I'd build up to it some more, but as you've probably already read in the title, it's Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider.

J.O.N.A.S. Goes FOTC and Its Driving Me M.A.D.

<I>J.O.N.A.S.</I> Goes <I>FOTC</I> and Its Driving Me M.A.D.

So the uberpopular Jonas Brothers with their mop top hair and their innocent sugar music and non-threatening teenage appeal have long had a Disney channel show in the works. Their surefire ratings hit dubbed J.O.N.A.S was going to take the trio of brothers and set them in the wild world of spies. Now that actually sounds like it could be mildly entertaining if I was 12. A little Alias, a little Spy Kids and a little Monkees and bam, you've got a series. What could be wrong with that? It's better than the premise of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Clutch the Heartstrings! More Greg Berlanti!

Clutch the Heartstrings! More Greg Berlanti! ABC's love affair with writer/producer/perpetual hit series creator/dude who doesn't seem to require sleep Greg Berlanti marches on with today's news that he has signed on for five more years and likely a boatload more cash (The Hollywood Reporter even calls it a "megadeal" - oooh! Megadeal!) with the network. Berlanti's already quite the busy bee over at ABC, as he has his hand in Brothers & Sisters, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money all simultaneously, which frankly makes me think of that "How many jobs you got?!" In Living Color sketch, which in turn makes me feel uncomfortable. But I digress...

10 Things I'd Rather Be Doing Than Watching Miley Cyrus Host Teen Choice 2008

Underwhelmed by the so-not-surprising- I-can't-even-believe-people-are-reporting-it news that Miley Cyrus will be hosting Fox's "Teen Choice 2008" this August, I've compiled a concise list of more compelling things I could do instead. Drumroll!
