... Comedy Central has canceled The Sarah Silverman Program after three seasons, leaving a gaping hole on television where comedies featuring a hot chick making poop jokes should be. The show barely survived the axe last season, so the cancellation this time around shouldn't be a big surprise. May your path to re-employment be paved with doody, Sarah. [Doodyline Hollypoop]

... ABC's Happy Town is getting the same treatment as all other whimsical, weird, and wacky ABC shows: YANK! The show described as "Twin Peaks lite" is being pulled off the network's schedule after a few crummy weeks in ratings. The network will air the final five episodes starting June 2, in case you still care. And in case you can't read between the lines, this show won't be back. [The Live Feed]

... The Daytime Emmy Award nominees have been announced, and General Hospital leads the soaps with 18 nods. It's just barely ahead of the ghost of its evil twin brother, who was thought to be dead in a car crash but is now pregnant with the son of his grandfather's uncle! [Variety]

... Slow-moving (but oh so riveting!) documentarian Ken Burns is revisiting one of his best works with an addendum to 1994's epic Baseball. His new two-part, four-hour film, The Tenth Inning, is set to air near the end of the current season in late September and will focus on the modern era of baseball, which includes 'roid-raged players, ridiculous contracts, and $10 beers. Hopefully Burns won't spend too much time on the stupid Red Sox. Go A's! [USA Today]

... Follow-up from yesterday: Glee's Lea Michele has responded to reports of her diva-like behavior toward a celebrity photographer at an event hosted by Time Magazine. She tweeted: "Big apology to [photographer] @PatrickMcMullan. Totally didn't expect you (or anyone) @Time 100 to know who I was w/all the amazin people there." First of all, you don't get off scot-free with a tweet saying you're sorry. Second of all, you're totally lying. [LA Times]
