Former NCIS Star Joins New TNT Cop Show

...Comedy Central has ordered six episodes of a new sketch show starring Nick Swardson--who played Terry, everyone's favorite roller-skating meth-addicted street hustler, on Reno: 911!. The show will feature sketches, digital shorts, and man-on-the-street interview stuff. And you can bet there will be lots of gay jokes. [Variety]

...Sasha Alexander, who you probably know from NCIS (she played Kate) but should really remember as Pacey's sister on the experimental art-house series Dawson's Creek, is joining the cast of that TNT/Angie Harmon show Rizzoli. Also in the cast will be veteran actor Bruce McGill, who you probably saw in... everything. [THR]

...As if we needed more proof that mediocrity can flourish in America, Fox has ordered a sixth, count 'em sixth, season of their animated groanfest American Dad!. Upon hearing the news, Arrested Development was seen stomping out of the room and sulking alone by the pool for an hour. [Variety]

...Oh, that's too bad. The fun and flamboyant Hugh Jackman will not be hosting next year's Oscars, it seems. He didn't want to do it two years in a row. I know many of you will think "Oh, now Neil Patrick Harris can do it!", to which I say "Pah!" What it really means is that now Conan O'Brien can do it. Pleeeease? [EW]

...Ah yes, here's that whole mediocrity thing again. Josh Heald, writer of the upcoming film Hot Tub Time Machine--starring Helen Mirren and Stephen Dillane--has two TV projects currently in development. One is called Sausagefest and stars Norm MacDonald. This bodes well for the success of my original pilot script, Farts!, starring Jim Breuer. [THR]

...HBO is developing a series based on The Follower, a novel about a stalker in New York City. The show will be sort of a really dark comedy, about the love lives of busy New Yorkers as seen through the eyes of a guy that's stalking all of them. So, wait... heh. Is this based on truth? Because, hah. Um... how did... I mean, I'm not stalking, it's just... I have an active interest in... Sigh. OK, fine. I'll move. [Variety]

Glad to hear Sasha Alexander is coming back to a series. Her character was much more enjoyable to watch than de Pablo's. Although de Pablo's isn't bad.

congrats to american dad for getting another season ordered. but i still worry for it since they've only been ordering 1 at a time which doesn't bode well.

Arrested Development is my favorite show of all time, but American Dad! is awesome. This season has especially been great.

I would like to see Neil Patrick Harris run the Oscars, because I think that he would hit it out of the park.

...Interesting. Turns out that complete tools get to opine about television shows America won't watch and ridicule quality shows. Seems the only requirements are an unhealthy obsession with Conan O'Brien and an inability to get jokes above second grade humor (adding a series of dots beofre each paragraph helps, too).
