Because we need a celebrity version of everything, ABC has ordered Celebrity Wife Swap, wherein celebrities from opposing walks of life will switch spouses for a week in the same chaste extended key party format as the regular people edition -- but better! Rumor has it the show is gunning for SNL alum and noted homophobe Victoria Jackson for an episode, so I think it's safe to say they're really reaching for the crazy stars here. And since I live to help the networks with these kinds of things, here are some fun swap ideas I know I for one would watch the hell out of.
Idol is promising big changes... back to the changes we've already seen before. It's less complicated than it sounds.
Good news for anyone DVRing Sarah Palin's Alaska, and MTV tackles abortion in today's news... what would Mama Bear Palin think?!
You know what? I know this sounds crazy, but I bet if Sarah Palin took over a network it would be number one forever.
Absolutely Fabulous will be making a comeback this summer with new episodes. Where else can you find women that make "Mommie Dearest look like Winnie-the-Bloody-Pooh"?
From Spy Kids to... dealing human organs on the black market?
Same-sex sparks fly on Glee (the non-cheerleader kind) for Kurt and Blaine, and Cablevision makes a deal to air Oprah's new network (though I can't imagine them having much choice against the ruler of the TV world), in today's news...
Glee won somethin' fancy! And other things.
I normally stay away from politics (well, unless they are on 24 or The West Wing) but I couldn't help myself when we saw that Sarah Palin (John McCain's running mate) had give all her children unusual names (Track, Bristol and Trig? Really?) and that two of the girls just happened to share names with famous TV witches. No, there's not a Sabrina or Samantha, but instead she's named them Piper and Willow (see clips after the jump if you have no idea who we're talking about, or are suffering through withdrawal). Palin is only 44 and clearly could have been a fan of the addictive WB dramas, and been inspired to give her kids these TV-centric names. Seems too unusual to just be random. Now do you think it is just a coincidence that a probable fan of The WB is plucked out of relative obscurity (she lives in Alaska) the very same week the WB launched their new site with these shows on them?
It's the middle of summer, and for some, season premieres are only weeks away. So here's an update on guest stars (ahem, a certain former Disney tween sensation), new directors, possibly a new talk show with a certain ex-governor, and future TV shows.
