The game of programming roulette continued Monday as several more shows were picked up by the networks -- each hopeful to have locked in the next big thing.

Fans of 'The O.C.' and 'Gossip Girl' have reason to rejoice. Creative wunderkind, Josh Schwartz and his 'Chuck' co-exec producer, Matt Miller, have sold a new sitcom called 'Hitched' to CBS. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the half-hour, mulitcamera comedy will focus on a young newlywed couple trying to figure each other - and marriage - out.

Joining 'Hitched' on the eye network will be a new untitled comedy from Tad Quill. Quill, a longtime collaborator with Bill Lawrence on such hits as 'Spin CIty' and 'Scrubs', has written a still untitled comedy about a widower dad who grapples with raising his 12 year-old son and getting back in the dating scene.

Arianna_HuffingtonWhen I first read the headline about Arianna Huffington getting into the TV comedy business, I had visions of her as Maude or something equally as bizarre.

Fortunately, it was just my skewed sense of humor at work, because Arianna Huffington, the political talking head and co-creator of The Huffington Post, is not starring in a sitcom. ABC has bought Huffington's idea for a multicamera sitcom. And just to make sure it's funny, they've hired executive producer Greg Malins (Friends, How I Met Your Mother) to develop the project.

20th Century Fox TV is producing the show for ABC and, yes, it is about politics. See, there are these three freshman members of the House of Representatives, two men and a woman (but no pizza place). They share an apartment in the D.C. area. "One is swept up in the movement of change... one has been in politics for a long time, and one is a master of the media and sound bites," said Malins.
