Out with the old, in with the new.
In today's headlines, we've got records set, rules adjusted and new endeavors breaking ground. Oh, what tumultuous gales sweep through our TV wasteland.
When Brian Austin Green wisely backed out of a lucrative One Tree Hill guest stint because the internet made fun of it, I was so relieved. I know One Tree Hill has a devoted fanbase, but my god, that show is hilariously horrible, and BAG just proved himself as a very capable actor on Terminator (no really! He did!). He deserves better material than that. Which is why it struck me as odd that he just turned around and accepted a job on Smallville, a show that is not as bad as One Tree Hill, but still a show he shouldn't be doing. He's only signed up for two episodes so far, so it's not like he's on board for life, but I worry that he'll get suckered into more for the easy money, when he could be making just as easy money on a better show that won't be as damaging to his career. So, BAG, if you're reading this, here are some other shows you should send your resume to the minute you're done with those two Smallville eps.
Some sad news today for Kung Fu fans, but some great news for Hell's Kitchen fans and pervs, so it's not all bad.
So a sad rumor leaked today for all of us Sarah Connor Chronicles fans (the few! The proud!). Apparently Fox is fed up with the show's low ratings -- particularly the fact that it's not being watched by those sexy 18 to 49-year-olds advertisers are obsessed with for no good reason. They're also terrified that the show is bringing down their beloved Prison Break's ratings by being a less than stellar lead-in. So they're pretty much just going to cancel it, possibly as early as tomorrow. Literally. Tomorrow. It's no secret that the show is inconsistent and has a lot of storytelling problems, and I'm still in the camp that believes Lena Headey was miscast as Sarah Connor (I do, however, think she's a good actress. I just don't think she's right for this particular role), but Summer Glau and Brian Austin Green are fantastic, and so are a lot of the other actors and characters. The show has many, many moments of sheer fun, and I honestly do kind of miss it already. Wow, sorry to go all Maudlin Mindy all over everyone. I didn't mean to! Now go watch some cyborgs get the party started after the jump!
Disclaimer: Today's TWoP news is riddled with a moderately high dose of OMG moments. Those other than rabid fangirls should click at their own risk. Or skip down to that sophisticated stuff about the Emmys, football, drugs, and other American staples.
Finally, ham you can eat in the bathroom.
Casting news abounds today, from BAG replacements to new ghost-busters to heavyweight hostesses. Also, an Idol gets a record deal, and it's not Gokey. Hooray!!!
