Today's TWoP News: August 7, 2009

Today's TWoP News: August 7, 2009

Another old TV show makes its way to the big screen, and a not-so-old TV show makes its way to the big... table? There's also some news about 24 and House, but it's not all good, so brace yourself and click.

We'll be seeing a lot more of Gordon Ramsay and his chin, as Fox signed on for an eighth season of Hell's Kitchen. Ramsay will also be presenting a live cooking show in December called CookALong Live, during which he'll teach us domestically challenged folk how to prepare a three-course meal. Oh, and get this -- he says he's going to be nice on this show. What's the fun in that?

Louis C.K. is either exceptionally talented, or just really ambitious. The stand-up star will cast, direct, edit and star in a new show on FX that is based on his life as a comedian and single father. All of this is in addition to his new role as a potential love interest for Amy Poehler on Parks and Recreation.

First, don't shoot the messenger. Second, this could be the last season of 24. Third, don't shoot the messenger.

The classic Western series Gunsmoke is being adapted to film, and will act as a prequel that will explore "how the characters came to be that way." Pardon the circular definition.

In casting news, Skeet Ulrich (Jericho) will play a murderer for three episodes of CSI:NY, and Paula Abdul will be making a second appearance in Drop Dead Diva, because now she has nothing better to do.

It's not that surprising that Fox's conservative views got in the way of the racy Family Guy, but that didn't make us any less disappointed when the network refused to air the now infamous "abortion episode." Those in Hollywood next week are in luck -- the cast will be doing a live table reading of the episode.

Huddy haters, rejoice! House's David Shore announced plans to focus away from the House and Cuddy romance this season, probably because they have to spend all that time on the Foreman/Thirteen romance everybody's just clamoring for, right?
