Channel Surfing – June 24, 2010

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Yes, they’ve broken up and a he said/she said drama continues to unfold, but Bachelor Jake Pavelka and his ex-fiancé Vienna Girardi will reunite on the July 5 episode of The Bachelorette to dish their relationship for the audience that watched them hook up in the first place.

PS – If you want to know who the infamous “Reality Steve” says current Bachelorette Ali picks – or doesn’t – this season, click here. Biiiiig spoilers if you do. In fact, spoilers so big that you won’t need to even watch the rest of the season.

– has a fun interview with How I Met Your Mother and Freaks and Geeks star Jason Segal, including his take on his upcoming Muppets movie, his dream project.

– Check out this preview of the Lost complete series DVDs. Gonna be on lots of holiday wish lists this year.

– As if there aren’t already enough cop shows on the air (check out my feature on this summer’s new crop of ’em), Lifetime alone is adding three new police dramas to the mix.

– By the way, the most successful of the new summer cop shows so far: Jason Lee‘s post-My Name Is Earl return to the tube in TNT’s Memphis Beat, in which he plays an Elvis-lovin’ Memphis cop.

– This sounds like the infamous Joan Collins/Linda Evans pond fight on Dynasty: ’80s pop stars Tiffany and Debbie Gibson will duke it out – in a swamp – in an upcoming Saturday night cheesefest flick on Syfy.

Sex and the City‘s Cynthia Nixon has signed on for a recurring role in Showtime’s new August drama The Big C, where she’ll play the friend of star Laura Linney‘s Cathy, an unhappy wife/mother/teacher who finds out she has cancer and decides to make some big changes in her life.

– Disgraced New York governor Eliot Spitzer is going to co-host a new CNN talk show. Will you watch, or is he just too big a creep? Or will you watch because he’s a big creep (that has to account for at least a portion of Bill O’Reilly‘s audience)?

– The next big trend in primetime might be mob dramas: Starz is developing one, Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is developing one and the New York Daily News reports that the son of a real-life mobster is pitching a reality show in which he would star.

– And, Betty White is not the only Hot in Cleveland cast member in the midst of a comeback. Valerie Bertinelli is not only one of the gang on Cleveland, but she also taped the pilot for a talk show that may replace As the World Turns when the daytime soap airs its series finale in September.
