Tina FeyFirst, Tina Fey and '30 Rock' gave us their take on 'Survivor' with 'MILF Island.' Now, they're taking on the hottest reality franchise on cable right now: 'The Real Housewives.'

According to TV Guide, Angie Jordan (Sherri Shepherd) gets cast in a 'Real Housewives'-esque series that puts cameras on Tracy (Tracy Morgan) 24/7. What's this do to him? "Having the cameras around forces Tracy to act on better behavior,"'30 Rock' executive producer Robert Carlock told TV Guide.

Look for a potential appearance from Bravo's Andy Cohen. "Tina certainly enjoys him and we have joked about having him on," Carlock said. "Maybe we will."

Should We Still Be Talking About Tiger Woods and His Wife? (VIDEO)

Should We Still Be Talking About Tiger Woods and His Wife?You may have heard about the marital troubles of golfer Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren. There was some cheating on Tiger's part -- with a ton of girls. Then there were some voicemails, a situation involving attacking a car with a golf club, and now -- reportedly -- Elin is considering a divorce from Tiger and wants a $750 million settlement.

But should we still be talking about all of this? On 'SportsNation' (weekdays, 4PM ET on ESPN2), hosts Colin and Michelle debate whether the marriage of the golfer is an appropriate topic for discussion. This is in response to a press conference where Tiger was asked about his relationship with Elin, and replied: "That's none of your business."

Host Michelle Beadle says we should stop talking about the whole affair; co-host Colin Cowherd disagrees. Hmm. So which position is right?

Happy 30th birthday, ESPN!

ESPN_logoToday marks 30 years since the premiere of ESPN. Happy birthday, ESPN! Hard to believe there was actually a time when there wasn't a cable channel devoted completely to sports. In fact, the idea of a cable network that just covered sports was considered as ridiculous as one that only reported the news. Don't even get me started on the radical notion of an all-food channel or one that specialized in weather!

Yes, once upon a time, all those concepts were deemed losers. Back in 1979, if you wanted to know the score of a game in progress, you had to hope it was playing on the radio or TV to tune in. Or, more often than not, wait till the local news broadcast at six o'clock for the score. How did we ever get by?

Will ESPN enter the late night talk show game?

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 27th 2008 8:23AM
ESPN redThis is an interesting notion -- ESPN is looking to launch a late night TV show. The sports network has reportedly approached three prominent sports journalists to anchor the show, but not one of them has shown any interest. The names are Dan LeBatard, Miami Herald columnist and local sports radio host; Colin Cowherd, ESPN national radio voice; and Jason Whitlock, Kansas City Star sports writer.

While I believe that ESPN has real interest in a late night sports show -- maybe a talk format about sports and entertainment -- I have real questions about the validity of the names floated in this report, especially with regard to Whitlock.

Jason was once a regular fill-in on Pardon The Interruption. He is very smart and funny and opinionated. Apparently he was too opinionated for some at the Disney-owned network. When he refused to pull his punches in his criticism, he was dropped by ESPN. Are we to think that now ESPN has asked him to not only come back, but possibly host a show for them?
