... The Hills aren't alive with the sound of music or anything else. This season of the pointless reality show will be its last, says MTV. "I think we've told the story of struggle and of finding yourself in L.A.," said show creator Adam DiVello. "We've also successfully lowered the I.Q. of Americans, thus completing our goal of destroying the country." I might have made that last bit up. [EW]

... At the Movies, the show that made Roger Ebert a household name, has also been cancelled after more than two decades. Damn you Internet! [Chicago Tribune]

... Buck Rogers is being turned into a movie. Paul W.S. Anderson (all that Resident Evil garbage) is helming the project, which will be released in 3D. This film could make as much as $20,000 at the box office. [Deadline Hollywood]

... I Spy star Robert Culp has passed away at the age of 79. Culp starred opposite Bill Cosby in the 1960s series about globetrotting spies and later in The Greatest American Hero. It is believed Culp died of a heart attack while on a jog. [THR]

... Carrie Fisher and Cheryl Hines have joined the ABC pilot Wright vs. Wrong, joining star Debra Messing in the dramedy about a right-wing political pundit (Messing). Fisher (Princess Leia) will play her manager and Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm) will play her liberal rival. Sweet! [EW]

... The showrunners of Private Practice have left the series. Robert Rovner and Jon Cowan have voluntarily stepped down from the position for unknown reasons, but let's just assume it's because the show is an insufferable mess. Is it? I don't know, I've never watched it. [THR]

... This one Web site which tracks ratings and shows' chances of renewal says Chuck is in grave danger of being cancelled. Now would be a good time to buy stock in Subway. [TV By the Numbers]
