TV News – 8/12/09

It’s Wednesday and I’m back. Both my daughter and I are sick, so I just wasn’t well enough to get yesterday’s news out. I’ll make it up today, though. 🙂 I’ll also have the recap of Hell’s Kitchen for you later today. Any Canadians out there watch So You Think You Can Dance Canada last night? Some pretty amazing dancers, and Mary Murphy was a judge and was in top form as usual. You can watch another new episode tonight at 8 pm on CTV. Anyways on to the news.

Hawthorne, a medical drama on TNT, has been renewed for a second season of 10 episodes set to air sometime in 2010. The series, which stars Jada Pinkett Smith (The Women) and Michael Vartan (Alias), focuses on the role of the nurse in the hospital with Smith’s character being a very strong, opinionated Chief of Nursing. I think the show is okay, but I was surprised that it got renewed. It hasn’t gotten great reviews. Who knows though, next season may be even better. Source

More news after the jump

Ausiello is handing out a small spoiler on NCIS concerning Tony and Ziva’s relationship. If you love this show and are interested, head over to Ausiello’s site and read the article. That’s all I’m going to say because I don’t want to spoil anything 🙂

Also according to Ausiello, Zach Gilford, who plays Matt on Friday Night Lights has had his arc this season extended. He’ll be in at least 7 episodes as opposed to the previous thought 4. I think this a good choice, because it means more Matt and Julie scenes. What do you think?

America’s Next Top Model contestant, Yaya DaCosta, will be playing Nico, Wilhelmina’s (Vanessa Williams) daughter, on the next season of Ugly Betty. The role was previously played by Jowharah Jones. DaCosta will appear in the season premiere on October 9th and be a part of one of the new mysteries of the season. Any thoughts? Source

In other Ugly Betty news, Paula Abdul is negotiations to guest star of the show, possibly as a new temp at Mode. The details are all being kept hush-hush right now. Abdul has become quite the hot commodity since she quit American Idol via Twitter, and why shouldn’t she? I’m sure she’d make a great guest star on any show and would be a boost in ratings from all the Idol fans that would watch. What do you think? Source

Zachary Ray Sherman has been cast to play Jasper Herman on 90210 this season. The character is said to be slightly disconcerting and strange. He will have a connection to Annie, and will stick around most of the season to mess with her. I won’t post anymore but if you want to read the article, be warned, it’s slightly spoilerish as far as Annie and the accident from the finale is concerned. Check out the article here

Okay that’s it for today, I hope I made up for not being around yesterday. 🙂 Look for my review of Hell’s Kitchen later today as well.
