American Idol—complete with a new judges panel, including JLO and Steven Tyler—debuted last night and... oh. Had a 13% drop off from previous years, making it their most disappointing debut yet. TOO BAD.

ABC is remaking Charlie's Angels, and have already cast the role of "Kate" who—oh, shit! SHE'S HOT!

MTV's version of Skins—which is a wildly toned down version of the frightfully naughty British teen soap—may just violate federal child pornography statutes.

The currently most hated man in Hollywood, Ricky Gervais, will make a "blink and you'll miss it" cameo on the January 27th episode of The Office.

ABC is picking up a sitcom—possibly to star Tim Allen—called The Last Days of Man, about "a man who fights for his manhood in a world increasingly dominated by women." In a related story, FUCK YOU, ABC.

Battlestar reboot creator Ron Moore is developing a show for NBC that's being called "a Harry Potter for grownups set in a police station." I'm not quite ready to say FUCK YOU, NBC—but I do suspect I'm being insulted.

And finally, here's a clip from the AH-MAY-ZING show My Strange Addiction (TLC, Wednesdays) in which we see a woman addicted to... eating the foam from her couch cushions??

Part two here!
