Channel Surfing – April 26, 2010

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Kudos to NBC for the get-well message to Celebrity Apprentice contestant Bret Michaels at the end of last night’s show. Not so much for Apprentice host Donald Trump, who’s spouting off today about the supposed negative prognosis for the rocker and his brain hemorrhage … often he’s amusing, but sometimes, Trump should just keep his mouth shut.

Madonna got her own episode of Glee, and now Britney Spears wants one, too. And series creator Ryan Murphy says he’s into the idea.

– More Glee news: Murphy’s description of this summer’s Glee tour makes it sound like it’ll be sort of a live performance of a TV episode.

– has a first look at Rob Lowe and Party Down‘s Adam Scott as the new cast members of the most improved show of the season, Parks and Recreation, which means season three could be even better.

– Another show that’s likely to be even better in its third season: FX’s Sons of Anarchy, which started filming on season three last week. The new season, set to premiere this fall, will feature Hal Holbrook playing the father of (the so Emmy-worthy) Katey Sagal‘s Gemma. Holbrook, whose last TV guest gig was on ER in 2008, was married to Designing Women star Dixie Carter, who died earlier this month.

– And a show I hope improves upon its last season, which was the lamest in the show’s history: Entourage, which makes its seventh season premiere on June 27, along with season two of Hung and season three of True Blood. According to the current plan for Entourage, by the way, season seven will be the show’s penultimate one, with a big-screen Entourage movie in development for after the show’s eighth season.

– After a year on The CW, the Daytime Emmys are headed to CBS. They’ll air live – from Las Vegas, for the first time – on June 27.

– The Lost series finale just keeps getting bigger. ABC will now air the Lost two-hour pilot on May 22, the night before the series ender that (hopefully) will answer most of fans’ big lingering questions.

– If you have HDNet, check out the list of awesome performers the channel will host for concerts in May and June, including Green Day, Paul McCartney, Jack Johnson and John Legend.

– One of my fave TV critics, Alan Sepinwall, says the last six season three episodes of Chuck, which begin airing tonight (8PM ET, NBC) are even better, thanks to the Chuck and Sarah romance.

– And Mad Men star Vincent Kartheiser is definitely the opposite of those people on Hoarders, but he may be taking it too far: He has no toilet in his house.

Channel Surfing – August 31, 2009

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Big winners at last night’s Daytime Emmys awards: The Bold and the Beautiful for Outstanding Drama (the show’s first ever), The View for Outstanding Talk Show Host (the show’s first ever in that category), Cash Cab for Outstanding Game Show, The Young and the RestlessChristian LeBlanc as Outstanding Lead Actor, One Life to Live‘s Susan Haskell as Outstanding Lead Actress, Rachael Ray as Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment and The Tyra Banks Show as Outstanding Talk Show/Informative.

Rescue Me ends its fifth season Tuesday night, and FX has announced that the show will air its series finale in 2011.

– MTV is up in the air about whether or not to air Gone Too Far, the reality series starring the late DJ AM. AM – real name: Adam Goldberg – was found dead Friday in New York, with reports suggesting a drug overdose as the cause; Gone Too Far revolves around him helping other young people battling addictions.

– The first of several soundtracks for the musical dramedy Glee, which premieres on Sept. 9 (after last spring’s pilot preview), will hit stores on Nov. 3 and feature the cast’s covers of “Gold Digger,” “Sweet Caroline” and “Somebody to Love,” among others.

– More info on The Jay Leno Show premiere: First guest Jerry Seinfeld will be joined by first musical guest Jay Z, with Rihanna and Kanye West. Tom Cruise, Halle Berry and Eric Clapton are among Leno’s other premiere week guests.

– The most-watched cable telecast of 2009 (so far): Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place movie.

– Former First Kid Jenna Bush has landed a part-time gig as a reporter on Today. That must make broadcast journalism grads everywhere proud.
