HBO Will Continue to Make it in America

... HBO has renewed freshman series How To Make it in America, probably because they realize that they should've canceled Entourage years ago but they still want to tell what ultimately amounts to the same story. Except this time with a steady diet of Nas and other mid-'90s hip hop thrown in. Everyone knows '80s hip hop is where it's at. Sheesh. [Variety]

... That's not all, folks! Cartoon Network is launching a new version of Looney Tunes, bringing back Bugs Bunny and his fellow furries and plopping them down in the suburbs. The kids should really love this show—until they realize the characters don't transform into cars. Cartoon Network announced a bunch of other stuff too, including the premiere dates of those damn live-action shows that will ruin the brand. [THR]

... Hulu.com, TV.com's mortal enemy (INTERNET FIIIIGHT!), will begin offering a premium subscription called Hulu Plus for $9.95 a month. Visitors to the site who don't have the Plus version will only be able to see the five most recent episodes of current TV shows, whereas those who do subscribe to Plus will be able to watch everything in Hulu's library. Screw this, I'm illegally downloading everything from now on! (TV.com does not endorse illegal downloading or anything else that Tim does.) [LA Times]

... Heather Locklear, once America's darling little girl, continues to spiral down a path of Charlie-Sheenness. She's been popping pills, spending time in rehab, and getting arrested, and now she's been charged with hit-and-run. The victim: a No Parking sign. She still looks pretty hot, though, so she's got that going for her. [TMZ]

... Oh God, kill me now. TruTV, which carries such enlightening fare as Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura and Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel, has okayed Wicked Summah, a reality show in the same vein as Jersey Shore but with "Massholes"—those white-hat, Tom-Brady-jersey-wearing, frat heads—instead of Guidos. Hopefully the house they film the show in will be right next door to the the house where they film I'm Going to Kill My Annoying Neighbors. [Broadcasting & Cable]

... Brothers & Sisters has a game-changer planned for its season finale. E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos, who never ever ever ever ever ever ever uses hyperbole, says, "It's an event that will leave you breathless and that no one will see coming." I definitely won't see it coming... because I won't see it at all. [E! Online]

From what I have seen How to Make it in America looks like a really promising show, I really enjoyed the episodes that I have seen and as a college student I have seen some of my friends go through these phases which makes this show totally relateable to anyone between the ages of 18 and 30. Plus it totally appeals to teenagers, their desire to get out on there own and make mistakes and find themselves.

I used to love Bugs Bunny when I was a kid! Boo to Hulu.com. The rumor is already out about Brothers & Sisters - Rob Lowe is not going to return next season because he does not feel like he gets enough on-air time. Poor baby! But that's what happens when you join a show with a large cast. I guess he did not learn his lesson on The West Wing, because he left that show too for the same reason. Actors who think they are the most important person out of an entire well-known cast and act like this are just a-holes.

Tim, are you drunk? Anyway, I won't pay for Hulu, so I'll have to be content to have only the last 5 episodes. I can deal with it. BTW, didn't somebody already make that cartoon and call it Tiny Toon Adventures?
