Today's TWoP News: March 10, 2009

Today's TWoP News: March 10, 2009 In the news today: phone sex apologies, an ailing TV detective, a senseless battered woman exploitation, ridiculous nerd happenings, witchy casting news and a new Joss musical. It's a real roller-coaster of emotions, I tell you.

If you accidentally got some dirty-talking chippie on the line when you voted for Idol last week, you're not alone. Apparently two of the numbers were just one number off from a couple of explicit phone sex lines, an oversight that has been corrected for tonight's broadcast. Though weighing whether calling a phone sex line is more embarrassing than voting for American Idol remains entirely up to you.

Alright, nerds: George Lucas is casting a live action Star Wars series. I'm a Trekkie (yes, I say Trekkie -- it sounds better than Trekker!), so I'm abstaining from further comment.

Joss Whedon has written a musical for a very special episode of This American Life, and you can watch it in a movie theater maybe!

That Witches of Eastwick series has added Rebecca Romijn to its cast, and I like Rebecca Romijn and Lindsay Price (who is also cast), but I still say there's no hope for that thing being good. They could cast Michael Cera, Paul Rudd and Nathan Fillion in drag in the lead roles and there's still no liking that show.

Mariska Hargitay has undergone a second surgery to repair the collapsed lung she suffered in January, and will be off the SVU set for the next few weeks. So weird and scary; hope she gets better.

Oprah's turning Rihanna's recent very public domestic violence scandal into a ratings stunt, devoting an entire episode to "all the Rihannas of the world" with Tyra Banks as a co-host. BRB, gotta vomit.
