Stephen Colbert Really Loves Our Troops

By Stefanie Lee

Aug 20, 2010

... On September 8 and 9, Stephen Colbert is airing two episodes of The Colbert Report just for the American troops returning home from Iraq. The specials will be called "Been There, Won That: The Returnification of the American-Do Troopscape!" and, presumably, they will be awesome. [Comedy Central]

... We're not rid of Larry King just yet. It turns out that his replacement, Piers Morgan, is having a hard time getting a work visa (Aren't there people he can hire to take care of that?) so King will probably be hosting his CNN talk show through the end of the year. [THR]

... Michael Vick has canceled his own reality show. I guess it's just not his thing anymore. [CSN Philly]

... USA's new crime-team-duo show, Covert Affairs, got picked up for a second season! The CW's 18 to Life, however, did not. It's okay, though, because no one watched 18 to Life. Then again, no one watches Last Call with Carson Daly, but it just got renewed for a tenth season anyway. Yeah. [Orlando Sentinel, Live Feed, & Variety]

... Casting news! Josh Holloway might replace Dermot Mulroney in the re-boot of The Rockford Files, John Glover is returning to Smallville to play Lionel Luther, Numb3rs actress Diane Farr is heading to Grey's Anatomy, Michael J. Fox will guest-star on The Good Wife, Stephen Collins is going to woo one of the Brothers and Sisters, and Ryan Devlin should be thanking his lucky stars he was dropped from $#*! My Dad Says—he's returning to both Cougar Town and Grey's Anatomy. [Ausiello, Ausiello, Ausiello, Orlando Sentinel, Watch with Kristin, & Ausiello]

... Cameo news! Stan Lee is going to play himself on Eureka, and Perez Hilton will do the same on Nickelodeon's Victorious. [TVGuide & The Frisky]

... Voicing news! You'll hear the voices of Katee Sackhoff and Matt Groening on next week's episode of Futurama. Now that's full circle. [Comedy Central]

... T.I. is developing a cartoon series called Lil' Homies. I hope he does all the voices for it, too. [Rap Radar]

... Bravo has released the cast list for Season 3 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes are still on it! Sheree and Kandi are also returning next season. Lisa Wu Hartwell, however, is not. But you'll see two new faces: Cynthia Bailey, a model, and Phaedra Parks, a lawyer. Countdown to the catfights! [People]

... Spencer Pratt is releasing a tell-all book about his ex-wife Heidi. Due to her chronic case of fame-whoredom, it will not tell us anything that we don't already know. [US Magazine]

    OMG Liionel is back! I'm so exicted! I really hope Lex also will be back this season.

    I thought he still was but he was released earlier this year.

    That must mean TI is a rapper then since he's been in prison and I've never heard of him!!

    Can I just say HaHa America, please keep Piers Morgan over there if you could, the man is an ex-tabloid hack turned talentless talent show judge.

    Isn't T.I. still in prison? Or more to the point...shouldn't he be?
