Today's TWoP News: February 10, 2009

So this is a new thing we're trying out in the Telefile -- quick, newsy snippets from the TV world to keep us all informed and on the same page, with some brief commentary. Learning together! It's so great! Tell us if you love it or hate it in the comments, and please feel free to rip on the news itself as well. Lord knows I'm going to, because get a load of this crap...

Another day, another Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are up and quitting Grey's Anatomy rumor. This one comes from co-star James Pickens Jr., who insists the two are in fact leaving, for real this time. Personally, I don't buy it. Katherine Heigl can't keep her mouth shut about anything, much less finally being given permission to leave a show she clearly hates being on so much. She'd have lit up some Shonda-punched-in-the-face bat signal all over Los Angeles if this were true.

ABC Family has renewed The Secret Life of the American Teenager for a second season, even though, as I've said a million times before, this show exposes no "secrets" about the lives of American teenagers whatsoever, unless you consider the fact that teenagers have sex with each other to be a secret, which of course you don't, because teenagers have been having sex with each other since forever. So okay, it's a bit of a misnomer, but that aside, I guess people like it, because it's coming back. Yay for Molly.

Kelsey Grammer will be directing Cybill Shepherd in a Lifetime pilot called Alligator Point, about a Florida woman who owns an oyster bar/home-away-from-home for ne'er-do-wells. You know, those. Actually, if this was going to be on any other network than Lifetime, I'd say it's going to be amazing, but of course it won't be. Also Kelsey Grammer is the worst, even when he's just behind the camera.

Hey, Tony Robbins got a Dr. Phil-like NBC reality show. Great job, NBC! Only five or six years after Tony Robbins' relevancy expired!

I feel like I heard this a long time ago, but the trades are reporting it as new news, so I guess I'm crazy: Anne Heche will be co-starring with Thomas Jane on that Thomas-Jane-plays-a-guy-with-a-giant-penis HBO show. (It's called Hung, by the way. Yes, I am thoroughly grossed out as well.)
