>> An E! spokesperson denied a flurry of reports that say Denise Richards’ reality show is canceled:
“’Denise Richards: It’s Complicated’ has not been canceled. The series has performed well for us and decisions are still being made regarding a second season.”
Make of that what you will. Networks do try to avoid going on the record to continue fueling speculation about the fate of a show they’ve firmly ruled out. Then again, it’s E!, they might just like the drama.
>> Better late than never: ABC renews “Here Come the Newlyweds” for eight episodes.
>> Received this message in my Inbox. Struggling to wrap my brain around it:
“Shelby, a 10-yearold girl who created www.jericho4kids.com who has raised moneycharities [and] helped raise money to send Jericho Season 1 DVD’s to ourtroops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and who has interviewed many actors andmusic stars was granted an interview with Alex O’Loughlin on Monday,August 25, 2008. During the interview Alex said he thinks ‘Moonlight’ would make a good movie.”
Now … wha– okay. Let’s … let’s. Okay. First … there’s a “Jericho For Kids” Web site? Well, it’s homepage is … interesting. Not a nuclear explosion drawn in crayons … but … still actually combines a kiddie style and “Jericho.” The tagline: “Where kids and ‘Jericho’ meet.” Second, the site is sending “Jericho” DVDs to troops in Iraq? I don’t … really? Third, the kid just interviewed Alex O’Loughlin for the site? Okay, O’Loughlin has … absolutely nothing to do with “Jericho,” but … that’s pretty darn impressive none the less (I’ve written a half dozen posts on “Moonlight” and never interviewed O’Loughlin). And Shelby, it should be noted, asks better questions than some TV critics. Seems O’Loughlin wanted to be a fighter pilot when he grew up.
>> Janeane Garofalo reads a “Hills” episode, the result: “Lauren simply comes off as aleech, her neediness sucking her victims dry until they’ve got nothingleft to give.” While on the subject, “Hills” ratings bounced backthis week (2.2/6), up 10% from its premiere now that its out from under theOlympics.
>> If “Deal or No Deal” fared best in viewer recall from Olympics ads, yet only scored a 12% boost in the ratings Monday, what does that mean for the rest of NBC’s fall lineup?
