Channel Surfing – Weekend Edition July 10-12

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Can’t. Wait. For the July 21 season premiere of Hell’s Kitchen, when one of the contestants finally stands up to Gordon Ramsay‘s verbal abuse by inviting him to step outside. Sometimes Ramsay is funny, and sometimes he’s just a tool, so I doubt I’ll be the only one cheering when the reality TV bully gets some feedback from a contestant, who happens to also be a non-active Marine.

– TNT is launching cool new role playing games for its new Dylan McDermott undercover cop drama Dark Blue and the return of its Timothy Hutton con drama Leverage. The games will officially kick off on July 15, the shows’ premiere date.

– The already rich and ubiquitous Ryan Seacrest is about to become even richer and ubiquitous-er (simmer down, I know it’s not a word): The American Idol and E! host is finalizing a new contract that will reportedly make him among the highest-paid reality hosts on TV. Sounds right to me … who deserves it more than the hard-working Seacrest, who really does make his many hosting gigs, from TV to radio, look effortless?

Napoleon Dynamite star Jon Heder has signed on to star in a new Comedy Central series that will be produced and written by FunnyorDie.com‘s Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy. The series, which will find Heder playing an unemployed tech guy who moves back in with his ‘rents, is said to cost $50 million, as the initial 10-episode order could lead the network to pick up 90 episodes, a la TBS’ House of Payne and Meet the Browns deals with Tyler Perry.

– Think a teenage version of Hung and that’s MTV’s upcoming comedy Hard Times, about a 15-year-old boy who becomes infamous when his classmates see that he’s really a Big Man on Campus (emphasis on the “Big”).

– SyFy’s dramedy Warehouse 13, which has been described as “Indiana Jones-meets-Moonlighting-meets-The X-Files,” drew the third highest premiere ratings in the network’s history. Check out my interview with charming series star Eddie McClintock at AOL TV.

– Since the movie biz seems to have little use for her these days, Lindsay Lohan has set up a production company to pitch TV shows, including what is being called “Entourage for the fashion world.”

– Speaking of fashion, whether you knew it or not, this is what your wardrobe has been missing: Selections from the Gene Simmons Moneybag line.

– Wanna know how to have the kind of body that will land you a, ahem, swell guy like Spencer Pratt? It’s all in The Heidi Workout.
