In the run-up to the Olympics, there was much hype about Ryan Seacrest joining the broadcast team and bringing something new to the coverage. He hasn't. But in a surprise twist, the person who has conducted interesting interviews has been John McEnroe. Who would have expected that the former temperamental tennis pro would have such a knack for interviewing Olympians?
Now that the US government has successfully dealt with the world's most wanted terrorist we finally start thinking about things that matter, like musicals based on reality TV.
Ryan Seacrest is not wanted dead or alive.
There is life after Lost (on other dead-end series) for Henry Ian Cusick, a comeback for deranged duo Beavis and Butthead (do we really want them back, Mike Judge??), and an Oscar winner takes a hit at Showtime's Weeds. Not a bong hit as far as we know yet...
Today is officially Bad New Reality Show Idea Day.
For some reason, Fox won't admit J.Lo is back for the next season of American Idol...
RIP Party Down.
Today we've got Bret Michaels, Grey's, Glee, Jake & Vienna, Top Model, and Lost news. Big stuff! Why are you wasting your time reading this intro paragraph?!
You done good, AMC.
It's early yet, but American Idol is already cleaning house for next season. Not all of it is official, but most of the news seems pretty definite, at least for the time being. Ellen's out (that's been confirmed). Kara's probably out, and being replaced by J.Lo. Randy, easily the most universally hated judge in the show's history, is reportedly staying, for reasons I cannot for the life of me discern. Seacrest isn't going anywhere, of course, and then there's the most baffling of all the news: Steven Tyler may replace Simon. Well, that should be terrifying.
