Channel Surfing – February 23, 2010

Channel Surfing – February 23, 2010

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Bravo has announced the dates for the two-part Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special (March 10 and 11), and teases that Tamra “drops a bombshell” in the season five finale on March 4. I’m guessing we already know what it is since her soon-to-be-ex-husband Simon spilled the details in a Bravo Website blog.

– Speaking of the Real Housewives, cast members from all the spin-offs are making guest appearances on the Meredith Viera-hosted syndicated version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire this week.

Kathy Griffin as the leader of a lesbian rights org, Mischa Barton as a hooker, Jaclyn Smith as a cop and Sharon Stone as a D.A. … just some of the upcoming guest stars for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Katee Sackhoff, who’s been mucking up the new season of 24 with her wooden acting, has signed on to star in an ABC crime pilot next season, which hopefully means she won’t return to CTU (assuming CTU, or rather 24, returns to Fox) next season.

Growing Pains actor Andrew Koenig is still MIA, and one of his friends’ description of his recent behavior makes his disappearance sound all the more troubling. But the latest: Radaronline.com reports that police in Vancouver believe Koenig is still alive.

– The First Lady and First Daughters are reportedly big Glee fans, which is why the cast will likely be performing at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll in April. By the way, beginning on Thursday, you can submit your entry to try and snag tickets for your 12-years-old and younger kids to the Easter egg event.

Jamie Foxx, Lindsey Vonn, Sarah Palin and the cast of Jersey Shore will be among Jay Leno‘s guests during the first week of his return to The Tonight Show.

Conan O’Brien fans, meanwhile, think he should be the first guest on the new (or is that the new, old?) Tonight Show. I’d rather see this rumored live show Coco is putting together.

– I love the Twitter musings at Shit My Dad Says and I love William Shatner, so here’s hoping when the two meet, it will result in a hilarious sitcom.

– On the flip side, Jim Belushi as a Las Vegas defense attorney with a bad marriage and a drinking problem in a CBS hour-long legal drama? Just sounds painful.

– It’s likely that Scrubs is really headed to that big sitcom graveyard in the sky after a pair of March episodes air on ABC. Oh well … we’ll always have the Turk “Poison” dance. And in honor of The Todd, cancellation high-five.

– And, sure, Pam and Jim are having their baby next week on The Office (March 4, 9PM ET, NBC), but when V returns to the ABC line-up at the end of March, human Valerie is going to give birth to a lizard.
