Channel Surfing – July 23

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– In the wake of Walter Cronkite‘s death, who’s now America’s most trusted newsman? A poll says it’s Jon Stewart.

– Speaking of Cronkite, the Discovery Channel is airing the news legend’s eight-part documentary on the 20th century, Cronkite Remembers, this Sunday.

Nip/Tuck star Joely Richardson will play Henry VIII‘s last wife, Catherine Parr, on the upcoming final season of Showtime’s The Tudors.

– Comedy Central is planning a straight-to-DVD movie version of its politically incorrect (to put it mildly) ‘toon Drawn Together.

– What’s wrong with kiddie beauty pageants? Check out a clip from last night’s Toddlers & Tiaras season premiere, in which a four-year-old describes her mom’s talking hands as her best friends. Really, just watch it.

The Jay Leno Show will have a different director than Leno’s Tonight Show, and the new helmer is an old Conan O’Brien director. BTW, “Stuttering” John Melendez will be a part of Leno’s new primetime show, but as a writer instead of an announcer. The official Website for the comedian’s new show is up on, where fans can watch The Jay Leno Show set being constructed.

– The Bio Channel is premiering new TV-related Biography episodes in August, including installments on Family Ties, Roseanne and Three’s Company.

– TV’s complete guide to Comic Con just makes me regret not planning a trip to the San Diego event this year … so many great TV happenings there.

– There’s a great line-up for HBO’s special on the 25th anniversary celebration for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, including Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Stevie Wonder, Metallica, Simon and Garfunkel and Aretha Franklin. Just one quibble: Since the Rock Hall of Fame is in Cleveland, couldn’t organizers have planned the event for that city, which could certainly use the potential influx of tourist cash the concert would bring, instead of Madison Square Garden?

– And tonight in primetime:

– Sadly, it’s officially the end of the road for Samantha Who? (8PM ET, ABC), as back-to-back episodes make up the series finale
