And while tabloids have leaked erroneous names over the past few years, it appears they’ve rounded up better sources this time around. It also turns out that Donny Osmond wasn’t lying when he said he was lying about competing. (Get that?)

For the show’s eighth installment, we’ll once again start off with an uneven 13 contestants. (This meant a Week 1 double-elimination last fall.) We’ll also see the series’ youngest performer to date.

MONDAY (10/13)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Sarah’s ex-flame and partner, Bryce Larkin, makes an unforeseen return and goes undercover with Sarah as an overly affectionate couple.” Unforeseen return? I predicted he would come back last year!
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 9pm):  Season 5 premiere. “Matt travels to Baghdad to help dwarf children in need of medical attention.” By doing so, he has now milked new meaning out of the show’s title.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30pm):  Season 2 premiere. “Sam teams with her mom in a dance competition against Regina’s nemesis (Cybill Shepherd) and her partner, who just happens to be a ringer.” Why do I always find myself rooting against Cybill Shepherd?
  • My Own Worst Enemy (NBC, 10pm):  Series premiere. “The implant in Henry Spivey’s brain that separates the two identities begins to malfunction, leaving each side fighting for dominance.” On one side, we have the who excelled in Heathers. On the other side, we have the Slater who stunk in Mobsters.

UPDATE: Christina Aguilera reports on her own website that her son, Max Liron Bratman, was actually born on Saturday.

Thanks to Britney Spears’ hospitalization and overdosed babies, LA’s Cedars-Sinai hospital has been receiving a lot of unwanted publicity lately.  Hopefully two highly-anticipated deliveries at the facility yesterday will (temporarily) direct the media’s attention toward other celebrity matters.

  • Celebutante and boyfriend welcomed a a 6 lb., 7 oz. baby Friday.  (This birth officially brings Richie’s weight back down to “0”.) The girl, named Harlow Winter Kate Madden, is the first child for both star, 26, and the rocker, 28.  Plans for a wedding will be set at a later time.
  • Same place, different time.  E! Online is reporting that singer , 27, and husband , 30, are also proud new parents.  According to a text message sent out yesterday, the couple welcomed their child sometime around 4pm yesterday.  No other details have yet been released.

In other baby news, actress (According to Jim) and her husband, Roger Fishman, introduced a son Friday: Jacob Emerson Fishman.  One day prior, (In Living Color) and his wife, Christine Y. Kim, said hello to daughter Luisa Danbi Grier-Kim.  Both couples are first-time parents.

Congrats to all the new moms and dads!

Damon Wayans Returns to TV

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, ABC,

Damon WayansRemember when the Wayans brothers were a force to be reckoned with? I’m not sure what Marlon, Shawn or Keenen Ivory are up to these days, but Damon is giving TV another go. And he hasn’t been away for long, seeing as his popular show My Wife and Kids, which premiered in 2001, just ended in 2005. He’s coming back to ABC and has another pilot in the works. Of course, you can expect laughs from Wayans (that’s what he does best), but there will be a little sorrow too—he plays a widower who has to look after his estranged teenage stepson. Again, he’ll be playing the dad and this show will feature multiple cameras versus the single camera comedies of late. Wayans doesn’t seem to be fading from the spotlight anytime soon—after My Wife and Kids, he also exec produced a Showtime series called The Underground. Is anyone else hoping for the In Living Color reunion? How great would it be to get the Wayans family, David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx, Tommy Davidson and Jim Carrey together again?

Improv Series Coming to NBC

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, Reality, NBC,

David Alan GrierNow here’s a show that sounds like it could be a good time. NBC has ordered six episodes of the improv series Thank God You’re Here. The show is nothing too groundbreaking—you’ve seen it before with Who’s Line is it Anyway? and this exact series is already enjoying popularity in other countries. Hosting duties will be performed by David Alan Grier (In Living Color), while Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall, Newsradio) serves as judge. I’m excited because I love these two, and I love improv. Check out the pilot, featuring Bryan Cranston (Malcolm in the Middle), Joel McHale (E!‘s The Soup), Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie), and Wayne Knight (Seinfeld). No details yet on when exactly you can catch the premiere of this show, but be on the lookout for what should prove an entertaining diversion from ordinary television offerings.
