TV News – 8/5/09

It’s Wednesday, halfway to that weekend 🙂 A few bits of news, some big, some small, So let’s get started.

Paula Abdul’s twitter announcement has been confirmed by Fox, she is indeed leaving American Idol. Her twitter feed read as follows: “With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to # IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day 1 become an international phenomenon.” (Obviously it was two tweets 😉 ) Ryan Seacrest was saddened by the news, and shocked as he’s been saying all along that he thought Abdul would return to Idol. I don’t think the show will be the same without her crazy antics, whether she’s crying, fighting with Simon or simply supporting the contestants. I’ve always enjoyed her. We’ll miss you Paula, but you got to do what you believe is best, all the best. Source

More news after the jump

Chandra Wilson (Grey’s Anatomy) is going to be doing some cross over episodes on Private Practice, when Bailey will travel to L.A. to visit Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) and assist in a medical procedure. We’ll also see some of the attraction and flirting between Bailey and Sam (Taye Diggs) that was present in the last crossovers. I’m very excited for this as I love both Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, but most of all I adore Chandra. Source

Here’s a link to a press tour live blog by The TV Addict about the new show Stargate Universe. I’m not a Stargate fan, but I am a Lou Diamond Phillips fan, so I may tune in to give it a chance, check out the live blog HERE
