A female football coach will replace Glee's Coach Ken Tanaka and SYTYCD EP and judge Nigel Lythgoe may return to Idol to get rid of the current judges...this isn't just wishful thinking, this is today's news...
The latest entry into the world of daytime chatfests started yesterday afternoon. Just what the world needed! Actually, I'm probably more inclined to watch this show than The View, but mostly because of my undying fascination with Julie Chen. Seriously, even in seasons when Big Brother sucks, I still watch to see what she's wearing. And while I usually can't catch The Early Show, I can totally DVR The Talk and watch it while I'm fixing dinner (and by that I mean calling for take out).
Now that the fall TV season is in full swing the time has come for a deluge of the second most exciting kind of pilot news in the biz. I am of course talking about the mid-season replacement shows! They are upon us! They are among us! They are being made in Tinsel Town as we speak! One in particular caught my eye this morning, first and foremost for its fabulous cast and then for its potential for being family-friendly without being a piece of crap. ABC has ordered 13 episodes of In the Motherhood, starring Chelsea Handler, Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines as three moms and best girlfriends who (I hope) make great television and are able to blaze a new trail for family shows that are not According to Jim. Or it could go... another way.
King of Queens alum Leah Remini is the latest actor trying to make it in the harsh world of daytime talk. The project is coming together now over at CBS and THR has heard rumblings that, while it may be a daytime show, it probably won't be "along the lines of a traditional talk show," whatever the hell that means. I guess we'll see, but the question of course is whether Remini is a Tyra Banks or if she's a Megan Mullally. Let's weigh the pros and cons, shall we?
