What you see here is the future of what the kids are watching.
Fran Drescher is getting a trial run at her own talk show this November, with Fox airing a non-committal three weeks of The Fran Drescher Show. Do your worst, Fox. We've been listening to Hasselbeck for years now. Our ears can handle anything at this point.
Fox has picked up two new cartoons: one based on Napoleon Dynamite (with many of the original actors -- including John Heder -- returning, if you care), and one from Jonah Hill, about an exceptional elementary school boy trying to go to school with regular kids. Great for those guys, but better for us would have been a cartoon based on Gentlemen Broncos and another cartoon based on Seth from Superbad. How is that not obvious?
Speaking of Fox, Banksy got 'em real good in his special sweatshop-tastic Simpsons' opening last night. That all sounds very progressive (and in a way, it is), until you find out that it was originally supposed to be even more depressing. Consider us deflated.
Just a quick note: There will never be a Real Housewives franchise set in the Midwest, because Andy Cohen thinks the ladies there are gross (I'm paraphrasing).
T-Bag himself, Robert Knepper, may join the cast of the Prison Break producers' other show about prison-breaking, Breakout Kings. But only if they agree to follow him around everywhere while holding onto his inside-out pants pocket.
Other quick things:
- Your eyes could have told you this years ago, but now it's official (official!): Minka Kelly is the sexiest woman alive.
- If you were confused by Abed delivering a baby in the background of last week's Community, it was apparently all part of a secret subliminal storyline Abed had going on all episode. Even if you somehow don't like that show you should watch it just to marvel at the astounding amount of effort they put into every single episode.
- TNT is the latest network to want a piece of that retro Mad Men awards pie, as they've ordered Hollywood & Vine, a noir pilot about a 1950s PI. Bids on what washed-up '90s actor will be playing that 1950s PI? Unleash them below! My guess is Eric McCormack. Or Frankie Muniz. But my hope is Kevin Bacon.
