... Inspirational guru Tony Robbins probably isn't flashing his blinding smile right now. Robbins' reality show Breakthrough With Tony Robbins tanked on NBC and has been pulled after only two episodes. It will be replaced by an hour of some bleach-haired guy giving people money to attempt stupid stunts in 60 seconds. Seriously, who is running things over at that network? [Associated Press]

... Entertainment Tonight is saying goodbye to Mary Hart, or maybe it's the other way around. Hart joined the show as a host in 1982, back when Chariots of Fire won the Academy Award for Best Picture. In other words, she's old. [THR]

... Motorcycle cop show CHiPs is being eyed as the next candidate for a series remake/reimagining/reboot. Warner Bros. Television is working with Topher Grace (That 70s Show) on an updated version of the show that made Erik Estrada a household name outside of the Estrada household, and made that other white guy known as "that guy who starred in CHiPs with Erik Estrada." [Deadline Hollywood]

... The first-ever reality television fan convention is taking place next April in Los Angeles. Dubbed "Reality Rocks Expo," the convention will allow fans to meet their favorite stars from reality television, such as The Racist Guy from Real World, the overly sensitive lesbian from that bisexual dating show, and that guy who burned toast on that cooking show.

... Fox has finally made it official: Nigel Lythgoe is returning to American Idol as executive producer. Jesus, it's about f***ing time. [Fox via press release]

... NBC, always right on the pulse of "what's hip with the kids these days," is taking a stab at not just the vampire genre, but also the zombie genre! The network has purchased the script Zombies vs. Vampires, about two cops (one of which is secretly a vampire) who deal with zombie-related crime. NBC, the home of cutting edge entertainment. [Deadline Hollywood]

... And finally, the thing you've all been waiting for. The name of Lost's Man in Black is... (disappointment in 1... 2... 3...) [/Film]
