TV News – 4/8/10

Today’s news is mixed with good, bad and stuff that makes you go ‘What were they thinking’? Let’s get to it!

Showtime has picked up an American version of Shameless, which is a British show originally. William H. Macy (ER) will play the father who struggles with alcohol addiction, and his “blue collar…working-class family”. It looks promising and I love Macy so I’m willing to give it a shot. Are you?

Luke Wilson (3:10 to Yuma), will be coming to HBO in a new comedy series, Enlightened. The show follows a married woman (Laura Dern) who is struggling to break her bad habits, and it causes problems at home and work. I think it’ll be a great show and I enjoy Wilson, so time will tell. Expect the show to start production this summer. Source

More after the jump, including chat about the American Idol results show last night.

Last night’s American Idol results show was jam packed. We got performances by David Archuleta, Rhianna and Jason Derulo and they were all great. Archuleta still looks like a cute little boy. That’s not the interesting part, though. Michael Lynche had the lowest votes.. YAY! Wait NO! He’s saved by the judges, and I think that’s a stupid move. What if Crystal, Siobhan, Lee or even Casey go next week? Then what? Oh well, there you have it, Big Mike was saved for another week and two Idols go home next week. Boo.

Ausiello is serving us up some yummy spoilers on some of our favorite shows, such as Fringe, Supernatural and others. As always if you don’t like spoilers then don’t click the link. For those of us who can’t say no to temptations, here’s the link.. Beware SPOILERS!

I’m not a fan of Kate Gosselin, or Jon Gosselin I don’t have a side. Well, that’s not true I’m on the side of the children, which makes me wonder how they’re going to be once their ‘mommy’ starts her new show on TLC. Twist of Kate will have Kate travelling around helping families through their issues etc. She’ll walk a few steps in the shoes of another mom, at home and at her job. Really? TLC also says that they’ll have a few episodes of Kate Plus 8, minus Jon who is currently seeking custody of their eight children. These poor children are going to be in therapy for a long time. I mean Kate travelling around helping families, what about her kids? *sigh* This is the reason I don’t usually report on this, because I get aggravated. Anyways, look for the reality show to start this summer, hey maybe she’ll teach the parents how to be bad dancers too? šŸ˜‰ Source

That’s all I’ve got for you today, don’t miss an all new episode of Bones tonight on FOX. It’s the 100th episode, not to be missed! Happy viewing.
