Channel Surfing – March 16, 2010

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– The best new TV drama since Sons of Anarchy premieres tonight: Justified, starring Deadwood‘s Timothy Olyphant as a Kentucky marshal. Check out my mini-review here, or better yet. just check out the show (10PM ET, FX).

– Mac and Sweet Dee are having a baby! Actually, it’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia stars – and real-life marrieds – Rob McElhenney and Kaitlin Olson, who are expecting their first child in August.

– What will the American Idol contestants sing for tonight’s Rolling Stones-themed performances? Here are my suggestions.

– Most TV types have been assuming that ex-American Idol judge Paula Abdul will reunite with Simon Cowell at the judge’s table of his upcoming U.S. version of The X Factor, but rumors leaked earlier this week that she was being wooed by ABC to host yet another revamp of Star Search. Now, The Daily Beast reports that loopy Paula actually passed on gobs of cash from ABC and may be holding out to work with Simon again after all.

– Seems like every day brings a new Betty White story, and there’s nothing wrong with that! Today, we learn that the Golden Girls alum will not only star in the pilot episode of TV Land’s summer sitcom Hot in Cleveland, but that she’s now been made a regular cast member.

– It’s looking good for an eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, says Larry David.

– I know lots of TV fans hate the big-screen makeovers of boob tube classics, but the premiere of the upcoming MacGruber movie was met with a very positive response from fans at the SXSW festival.

24 moving from Fox to NBC? Eh, I guess there have been worse ideas. I guess.

– This is certainly a contender for the weirdest show ever: Mike Tyson – yes, that Mike Tyson – is going to star in an Animal Planet reality series called Taking on Tyson, which will find the former boxing champ raising and racing pigeons. Wow.

– And wanna co-star with As the World Turns diva Eileen Fulton before the soap sadly bites the dust next fall? Here’s your chance.
