Gary Coleman is in Trouble With the Law Again

... What we are talking 'bout are domestic violence allegations. Diff'rent Strokes star Gary Coleman, not to be confused with Gary Cole or a Thermos, was arrested in Utah this weekend on a domestic-violence warrant. And if you thought that was surprising, you'll never guess who else was arrested this weekend: Andy Dick! [LA Times]

... The multi-network Hope For Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief was a smashing success, earning more than $57 million for the ravaged nation. I gave money, did you? You didn't? Well, I guess there will be an extra slice of pie in heaven for me, then. [The Live Feed]

... Someone give Brett Favre a show! Every time that guy is on television, people watch. Yesterday's NFC Championship game between the New Orleans Saints and Favre's Minnesota Vikings was viewed by 52 million people and clocked a 19 rating among adults. It's the biggest television event of the season so far and should stay there for two weeks! In other news, figure skating was caught the eye of only 3 million people and drew a 3 rating. Take that, figure skating! [TV by the Numbers]

... That next big thing at NBC, Rex is Not Your Lawyer, may already be in trouble. Rumor has it that the sets for the show, which stars Doctor Who himself, Brit actor David Tennant, are already coming down and the show may jettisoned before it ever even airs. Welcome to American television, David. We do things differently over here. [EW]

... Those TV-based porn parodies of television keep on coming. Hustler Video is thrusting out naughty versions of Glee (kinky!), The Hills, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and The Soup. I'm not sure how those last two are going to work, and frankly, I don't want to know. [The Live Feed]

... Joanna Garcia, that lovable darling from that show we all once loved, will be back on screen making us love her even more. Garcia will star in an upcoming ABC comedy about two sisters whose lives are heading in opposite directions. Garcia will play the sis that has just married because she got pregnant. I'm guessing that's the bad direction. [THR]

... All My Children's James Mitchell has passed away at the age of 89. I never knew him and I never watched All My Children, but according to all the obituaries I read, he was a good man. [THR]

    Gary Colmen is pretty much a loser. No one cares about him. Alright great news about Joanna Garcia that's awesome.
