  • 24comments

... Have no fear, Heroes fans. The show will be back for another season... says an actor who has a vested interested in the show's return. Greg Grunberg says his Matt Parkman and the rest of the Heroes are definitely coming back, because they just filmed the season finale and there's a lot of cliffhanger-y goodness going on. And how could a show ever be canceled with an unresolved cliffhanger ending? [EW]

... New Orleans is still recovering from Hurricane Katrina's devastation, and MTV isn't helping. The Real World's 24th season will be set in The Big Easy, which should boost the local economy's Margarita-by-the-yard sales and potential Girls Gone Wild videos. "Hurricane Katrina threw New Orleans for a punch, but the city is coming back, and we're hoping our cast members and the series can play a small role in the city's rebirth," said a clueless and exploitative MTV exec.

... Fox has pulled Our Little Genius, their Who Wants to be a Millionare for adorable suit-wearing kids, from its schedule. Why? The network screwed up big time. Producer Mark Burnett said, "I recently discovered that there was an issue with how some information was related to contestants during pre-production." Translation: We gave kids the answers to make the show cooler. Oops! [Fox]

... Bones is dipping into its past by bringing back Zack! Unfortunately, I don't watch this show and have no idea who Zack is, but it sounds pretty awesome, especially since Zack rhymes with back. Actor Eric Millegan will return for the show's 100th episode in April, which flashes back to Booth and Brennan's first assignment together. [EW]

... A future episode of Glee will feature an all-Madonna soundtrack, and MadonnaTribe has scooped the song list. "Borderline," "Open Your Heart," "Burning Up," "Crazy For You," both "Like a Virgin" and "Prayer," and "Vogue" are among those songs reported to be in. In other news, imagine an entire tribe of Madonnas. Scary! [MadonnaTribe]

... Howard Stern sidekick and Dirty Work star Artie Lange tried to Elliot Smith himself by inserting a knife into his own chest. Nine times. Reports say he sustained six "hesitation wounds" and "three deep plunges," which sounds absolutely God-awful. Of the attempted suicide, Stern said, "We all have our demons." Lange's abrasive comedic style may be off-putting to some, but he's funny. Take care of yourself, Artie. [NY Post]
