In addition to Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show, he will also be hosting a game show on ABC, called Set for Life. The new show starts production next week—pitting contestants against each other as they compete to win a monthly cash amount for the rest of their life.

  Here’s some good news for fans of both Scrubs and musicals—the series’ sixth episode this season will be a musical. For non-musical fans, this may not be such a great thing, but I’m curious to see how they pull it off. TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello had the opportunity to interview Scubs creator Bill Lawrence about the episode.

I had read a couple of days ago that the new season of Survivor would pit races against each other, but quickly dismissed it as rumor.

The cast of Survivor: Cook Islands will have 20 contestants divided into four tribes: black, white, Asian and Latino. Said creator and executive …

Did you know that of all the regular characters on major networks last year, less than 2% of them in primetime were gay, lesbian or bisexual?  And the numbers don’t fare much better this year.  GLAAD (The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) has been analyzing …
