TV Suffering from 'Slumdog Millionaire' Fever

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 1st 2010 7:29PM
(In my best Christopher Walken voice, which really isn't all that good) Guess what? Your TV has a fever! And the only prescription... is more 'Slumdog Millionaire' type shows!

The critical and financial success of the plucky little independent Bollywood-esque drama that brought 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?' back into your consciousness just as it was leaving has inspired several upcoming TV comedies with heavy Indian-themes.

Fox has greenlit 'Nirvana,' an Indian-American family sitcom and NBC has picked up 'Outsourced,' another office comedy about an American manager who is sent to India to manage a customer service department. Would you be interested in watching these shows, even if you had never heard of 'Slumdog Millionaire'?

CBS' Tassler on Jericho, Minds' Patinkin and CSI's Dourdan - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 18th 2007 7:42PM

Mandy Patinkin, Gary Jourdan, Skeet UlrichCSI: Miami's Horatio Cane is getting a son, those kids on How I Met Your Mother are getting a Mom and Jericho fans are getting seven more episodes -- for now.

CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler offered up some news and story tidbits and fielded inquiries from the press about the off-screen lives of Eye network stars as Wednesday morning's press session got underway.

First up: the story tidbits and other show-related news. "Viewers will get hints about the identity of the mother in How I Met Your Mother," Tassler revealed. (Me, I've always guessed it's Alyson Hannigan -- but I'm not sure I want to see Hannigan's Lily and Jason Segel's Marshall not live happily ever after.)

American Idol wants Courtney Love

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 31st 2007 8:27AM
courtney loveThis bit of news is according to Courtney Love and US Magazine... so two strikes against it already. Courtney tells the gossip rag that American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe contacted her about appearing as a judge. The magazine takes that to mean that Love will replace Paula Abdul but that sounds like a load of crap to me. I imagine that she's been invited to appear as a guest judge, which is a common practice for American Idol.

Plus, she'll make Paula look good.

*Update: US magazine says an 'imposter' phoned Courtney, which makes a lot more sense than her appearing on American Idol.

Martha Stewart to invest in Nirvana?

by Karina Longworth, posted Dec 22nd 2005 2:54PM
From the Totally Unsubstantiated Rumor file: Page Six is "reporting" this morning that a cashed-strapped Courtney Love - slimmed down and drug free but apparently broke as all get out – is working on selling the rights to her late husband Kurt Cobain's musical output. This comes after a messy, multi-year battle between Love and Cobain's former band mates Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic (as well as original drummer Chad Channing, at least according to the Sixers) over the future of the Nirvana catalogue: if I remember correctly, the boys wanted to put everything in the hands of the fans, whilst Love wanted to slowly parcel out the outakes and rarities to ensure the maximum padding for Frances Bean's college fund. Page Six says Love is looking for $100 million.
