A&E, the cable network that is slowly becoming no arts nor entertainment, has signed on another tabloid favorite celebrity to bare her life for the camera.

Kirstie Alley will join the network's neverending list of celebrity reality shows. This one will focus on her neverending battle with weight loss as she raises her kids. The network has ordered 10 episodes of the new series.

In other words, it's every other family-related reality show you've ever seen except this one will star Kirstie Alley.

Grease is the wordHey you! Wanna be in Grease?

NBC is holding cattle calls for a new reality series: You're the One that I Want, starting late October in Chicago, New York City and Los Angeles. They're looking for gals and guys to compete in a reality series for the lead roles of Sandy and Danny (played by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta in the movie) in a new Broadway stage production of the musical.

You should be 18 years old and older with singing, acting and dancing ability. You know: skillz. Have two songs ready, one from Grease, and one non-Grease related. More details are available at NBC.com according to a network press release, but I couldn't turn them up in an admittedly cursory search.

Arrive early. Those in line earliest will get wristbands guaranteeing an audition. Show up late, and you may or may not get seen. Casting call times and locations after the jump:

Carville and Matalin to star in reality series

Mary Matalin and James CarvilleInteresting tidbit from, of all places, Time magazine: James Carville and Mary Matalin, political strategists on opposite sides of the fence who just happen to be husband and wife, will be participating in a Lifetime reality series called Election. In the show Carville, who managed Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign, and Matalin, who is a well-regarded Republican strategist, will each advise a high school student that's running for school president.

I've always wanted to see Carville and Matalin in a reality show, considering they have a successful marriage despite their opposing political views, and also because both of them have made-for-TV personalities (especially Carville, whose character was already immortalized by Billy Bob Thornton on the sitcom Hearts Afire in the movie Primary Colors). I just wish they'd put cameras on their everyday life, instead of doing this this contrived idea. Imagine: a fight about government wiretapping turns into a night of wild passion. It'd be a hundred times better than The West Wing, I tell you that.
