Stewart/Colbert in 2012!

By Tim Surette

... Comedy Central is keeping a firm grip on its moneymakers, extending its contracts with both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert through 2012, when they can mock potential presidents on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. This is good news. [NY Times]

... This just in to our e-mail inboxes! HBO has renewed Curb Your Enthusiasm for an eighth season. [HBO press release]

... The super amazing Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights' Coach Eric Taylor) is being courted for Steven Spielberg and Fox's upcoming series Terra Nova, about a family that travels back to the days of the dinosaurs. Chandler has quietly become one of television's best actors, so it's good to see him get some high-profile offers. Plus, he's already proved he can play opposite gigantic beasts, in King Kong. [EW]

... Morpheus Laurence Fishburne has renewed his contract with CBS and will remain on CSI as Raymond Langston through next season. Fishburne has gotten mixed reviews since taking over for William Petersen's Gil Grissom, but c'mon people, it's Larry Fish! He's the man! [THR]

... Bad boys, bad boys, you guys still have a chance to get on TV! Fox has renewed Cops for a 23rd season! So dust off that crack pipe, take off your pants, and get out and be somebody! [THR]

... All those ladies Tiger Woods and Jesse James cheated with would make great stars for a reality show! Aww darnit, some lowlife already beat me to it. [TMZ]

... Mark your calendars: Mad Men will return on July 25. And though show creator Matt Weiner has said the show would probably end after six seasons, AMC has said they'd like to drag it out as long as possible because that's what they HAD to say. [THR]

... The 24 movie has a script! Kiefer Sutherland confirmed that the script for a feature-length movie is finished, meaning the possible spin-off film can begin getting delayed immediately and never make it to the big screen. [IGN]

    People always like celebrities, but I think those in uniform deserve more respect. They defend our country and safeguard our policy. Join Mil itaryf lir tin g dot c o m, show your love and respect to our military heroes.

    Kyle chandler was great ever before Early Edition - Go back to the show "Tour of Duty" - great actor!

    Love Kyle Chandler, he has this old movie star appeal that's great to watch. I remember Early Edition too, that's when he first caught my eye and i've been watching him since. Fantastic that he's finally moving on to bigger things!

    I LOVE STEPHEN COLBERT :-)

    I actually don't mind Laurence Fishburne on CSI. I prefer Grissom (William Petersen) but Ray isn't that bad.

  • KingofIPirates Apr 20, 2010

    Eh, they're already done with the script?

  • kravitzfan12 Apr 20, 2010

    I'm very excited about Curb - there's been a lot of rumors and confirmation from cast members, but to hear it from HBO is good news!
