Today's TWoP News: November 10, 2009

Today's TWoP News: November 10, 2009 Fox, I'm begging you -- please leave Fringe alone.

In the most irritating news I've heard in quite some time, Ugly Betty is expected to move into the recently canceled Eastwick's Wednesday night timeslot. Which means that all my hopes that the formerly enjoyable show had been sent on a Friday ice float to die at the end of the season are likely dashed against the rocks. Thanks a lot, Updike!

You know that ABC show Kathy Griffin was going to host in a couple weeks where celebrities were going to reenact famous dance scenes from movies and television? The network couldn't cast it in time, so it's been pulled from the schedule. Oh well, we'll always have 13 Going on 30...

The Twitter account Shit My Dad Says is being turned into a sitcom over at CBS, where it will undoubtedly be stripped of all its brilliance and swear words and just kind of watered down into the same "Old men say some shoooocking things!" schtick we've seen a million times over. But hey, at least that kid can probably move out of his dad's house now, right? Silver lining!

The Real Housewives producers are looking to create an all-male counterpart of the franchise, hilariously titled Boys Club: ATL. It... doesn't sound like it's as much fun as its predecessors, unless Dwight and Kim's wig-maker round out the cast of regulars or something, that is.

J.J. Abrams is remaining suspiciously optimistic regarding the fate of Fringe in the face of its terrible timeslot resulting in teensy ratings, so I'm getting pretty worried about my little ridiculous faux science show. Because really -- Fox is "insanely supportive" of a genre show that is getting awful ratings? That ain't the Fox I know. Someone involved with this story has just got to be a lying liar who lies.

This isn't really news, but it is satisfying -- Ben Mackenzie, star of Southland, dressed as Jay Leno for Halloween as an homage to the man who got his show canceled. Heh.
