Great news for my favorite new show of the season. Rob Lowe, who was to guest star on a few episodes of Brothers & Sisters, will continue his stay for the rest of the season. The reason? You might guess that it’s his magical ability to never age (I mean, seriously, this guy looks fantastic). Well, perhaps that fountain of youth is responsible for the show’s highest ratings of the season. Lowe plays U.S. senator …

Ah, syndication—the promise land. Well, at least it gives fans of shows the opportunity to see their favorite episodes again, while picking up brand new viewers who might have missed the show the first time around. The latest shows heading for syndication in the fall are Reno 911! and Chappelle’s Show, both from Comedy Central. “The sitcom arena is always one that works well for stations, but there’s not as much product coming down the …

Tiffani Thiessen Joins Cast of What About Brian

With the recent news that Stacy Keibler, of Dancing With the Stars, is joining What About Brian, and now Tiffani Thiessen, it seems that the show is desperately scrambling to build viewer interest. How best to do that? Hiring on a couple of hot women certainly can’t hurt. Of course, maintaining some more interesting storylines would be a good start too. I don’t know what happened to this show—this mid-season replacement was so great last …

Megan Mullally Show Canceled

I feel really bad about this cancellation. I loved Megan Mullally on Will & Grace, and when I heard she would have her own show, I thought it would be a really good fit. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of spare time to watch daytime talk shows, but what little I saw of The Megan Mullally Show, I wasn’t thrilled. Some of it was interesting, but I think Mullally’s interviewing could have had a …

The O.C. to Take Final Bow

There was a lot of speculation about what would become of The O.C. once Marissa Cooper (Mischa Barton) was killed off. Looks like the show, which was given an abbreviated order for season four, will be wrapping up in late February. Fox announced Wednesday that The O.C. was canned, and the season finale will be the series finale. The last episode (ever!) of The O.C. will air February 22nd. O.C. creator and executive producer Josh …

Mario Lopez Next Miss America Host

Fresh off of his successful turn on Dancing With the Stars, Mario Lopez will next be taking on hosting duties for the Miss America pageant. No stranger to hosting duties, Lopez hosted Pet Star on Animal Planet, a contest looking for the most talented animal. So maybe hosting a beauty pageant won’t be too much of a stretch. I kid! He also hosted the Miss Teen USA pageant in 2003, so he has experience with …
