Channel Surfing – July 21

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Things probably aren’t going to be less tense on the Grey’s Anatomy set this year, especially after Katherine Heigl‘s appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, in which she all but laughs at her character’s storyline. No, actually, she does laugh at it.

– How rampant is Twilight fever? So rampant that ReelzChannel is launching a weekly series devoted to all things vampire-y and Robert Pattinson-y.

– Can Shaquille O’Neal outswim Michael Phelps? We’ll see, when Shaq Vs., a new series in which the NBA star competes against other superstar athletes in their sports, premieres on ABC on Aug. 18.

Brooke Burns has joined the cast of the Melrose Place remake, where she’ll play the wife of Michael Mancini. If we can ignore the poor acting skills of Ashlee Simpson, this thing just might not suck after all.

– How does Gossip Girl plan to avoid the boredom that often follows when a favorite TV couple finally hooks up? Apparently, angry sex with Chuck and Blair.

– Fans still bummed about the cancellation of The Unit can at least look forward to the complete series DVD box set Fox Home Entertainment will release on Sept. 29.
