Today's TWoP News: August 11, 2009

Today's TWoP News: August 11, 2009

Fox hogs the news today with the good (pseudo-Arrested Development reunion!), the bad (Octomom special), the overdone (another cop show?!) and some other stuff, too. Gossip Girl launches its new "WTF?" ad campaign, and Paula Abdul continues to be tossed around like the oh-so-desired commodity she is.

Will Arnett is teaming up with former Arrested Development producers Mitch Hurwitz and Jim Vallely to write and star in a new Fox comedy. Arnett will play a "rich Beverly Hills jackass" who falls in love with one of those granola do-gooder types, and we'll probably love him just as much as ever.

Mark Ballas said that he doesn't want Paula to be a judge on Dancing With the Stars, but rather a contestant, even though she can already dance. Sounds like a lame excuse to fill up what's going to be the (gasp!) biggest cast ever!

For some reason Fox missed the memo that nobody gives a crap about Octomom, because they've decided to air a two-hour special on the frighteningly fertile Nadya Suleman on August 19. And still nobody will agree to air her reality show.

Dane Cook made a nudey pics joke about Vanessa Hudgens at the Teen Choice Awards, but Fox cut it out. Fortunately, the good folks over at MTV have made it possible for us to witness Vadge and her pissy face here.

King of the Hill will end its 13-year run on Fox with an hour-long series finale, making room in the network lineup for a new police drama. Ridealong will be set in the Windy City because "Chicago has become the center of the universe," according to creator Shawn Ryan. Seriously. He said that.

Gossip Girl season 3 teasers are up! Blair is going to be a loser in college! Dan is an alcoholic! Serena is (still) a whore! This is going to be the best season ever!

Oh, and TNT is renewing HawthoRNe for a second season, because somehow 3.8 million people managed to stay awake while watching it.
