Archer Gets Its Second Round of Assignments

... The best animated spy comedy on television has been renewed for a second season. That show is, of course, FX's Archer. If you aren't offended by jokes about interracial porn, drug abuse, and baby-killing, you should check it out. Besides, haven't you seen that I'm quoted in the latest television promo? Me! Hollywood, here I come! [Broadcasting & Cable]

... Al Franken, the subject of my children's book "The Funniest Little Senator," is using his power for the people. Franken, an opponent of the merger between Comcast and NBC, is asking both corporations to make all their programming available on the Internet should the 30-billion-dollar deal go through. You go, Al. [LA Times]

... Jim Belushi is baaaaaaaaaaaack. After According to Jim was finally mercy-killed, you thought you'd seen the last of him. But no, like Jason Vorhees, Freddy Krueger, and Perez Hilton, he just won't go away. He's set to star in the new CBS show Defenders, about Las Vegas attorneys that fight for the little guy. It's supposedly a drama, but let's face it, if Jim Belushi is involved, it's a comedy whether it wants to be or not. [THR]

... Sports bettors have already picked the contestant to win American Idol: 24-year-old Andrew Garcia from Moreno Valley, California. He's currently a 4:1 favorite, meaning a one-dollar bet stands to make four dollars. So mortgage that house and bet it all! [some betting site]

... Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Season 4 finale set a new record for E!, duping 4.8 million viewers into watching the antics of fake celebs. If we were somehow able to "erase" these 4.8 million people from the planet, it wouldn't be such a bad thing, right? I know a guy who knows a guy, we just need to chip in. [Variety]

... TLC has renewed The Little Couple for a third season, meaning all its programming will remain about making cakes or little people. [THR]

... NBC is already pimping Jay Leno's return to The Tonight Show Without Conan O'Brien, and Team Coco has remixed the spot for its own evil purposes. Add Radiohead's "Creep" to the ad, and you get genius. [from the video below]

Gotta love the Archer bit. I read that it might be a long-shot. I am glad to see that it is going to be around for a second season.
