I believe this is what they call "the light at the end of the tunnel."
Today is officially Bad New Reality Show Idea Day.
Start saving your Cake Boss T-shirts, mouse pads and baseball caps -- they're about to become collector's items. The TLC show, which has been on for over a year now, was ordered by a judge to change its name, because CakeBoss has been the name of a cake-making software program since 2007. I'm going to repeat that: a cake-making software program. While we were hoping that it was a program that produced delicious cakes out of your printer, or possibly even a video game in which you battled other chefs as you ran around the tiers of the world's largest cake, it's actually a tool made to help bakers keep track of orders, price cakes appropriately and manage recipes and ingredients, which is... still pretty incredible that it exists. Anyway, we don't want the show to go anywhere, so we figured we'd try to come up with some new names for the producers to choose from.
Debra Messing gets a cameo on Law and Order: SVU, Kathy Griffin gets four comedy specials on Bravo, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson is one of the co-hosts of the WGA Awards. In a rare case, it's a good day to be a ginger...
This week we finally get a classic bit of '90s kids television. Hopefully it holds up...
There's so much news today; I didn't even have room to include anything Oprah-related! Ahhh!
It's Emmy day, so it's kind of difficult to care about "other" news, at least until tomorrow, but I will do my best!
Some good TV comes out today, all of which would make great gifts for the holiday season. And you know who appreciates your gifts the most, don't you? That's right, yourself. So give yourself a little Cake Boss -- you deserve it.
Surprisingly, even though Idol wasn't on last night, there's a heck of a lot of talk about it today. Not that any of it amounts to much of anything, but hey, it's a slow news day (again), and I'll take what I can get. If that means random Idol speculation from Simon Cowell, so be it. Also, there's some news on that Gossip Girl spinoff that's making this TV nerd pretty happy.
