Today's TWoP News: Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Prepare yourself for many a monologue about the industry...

...Because HBO just picked up Aaron Sorkin's cable newsroom pilot! It's been five years since Studio 60 and we are legitimately pumped.

Congrats to Mary Tyler Moore, who just scored herself a SAG Life Achievement Award. Must've been her Hot in Cleveland performance that wooed the Guild.

Supernatural star Julie McNiven will be guest starring on Nikita in the second season's second episode. She'll be playing "a young woman with a troubled past who is completely unaware that she is a sleeper assassin". Sounds about right.

In today's Sex and the City-milking news, Mark Gordon and Candace Bushnell are working with Josh Safran on adapting chick lit sensation One Fifth Avenue into a pilot for ABC.

Oxygen has just greenlighted Best Ink, a competition reality series for tattoo artists. Let's just hope none of the contestants are graduates of TLC's Tattoo School.

Surely tired of handing out roses, Chris Harrison is moving on to bigger and better other ABC game shows. This one's about giving money to people who might actually deserve it... also, he will never, ever leave The Bachelor.

And finally, an idea we desperately hope becomes a reality: Ricky Gervais wants to do a live Golden Globes podcast, complete with fellow comedians including Louis CK, Chris Rock, Karl Pilkington, John Stewart and Larry David. We'd even watch that thing a year later were they to animate it for HBO.
