Good News, Bad News: Katie Holmes, Amy Poehler, THE SHIELD and Hayden Panettiere

Good News: ELI STONE should get a much needed ratings boost when it returns to TV this fall. Bad News: Courtesy of Mrs. Tom Cruise Katie Holmes. Or as I like to call her, the artist formerly known as Joey Potter. Who is said to be reuniting with DAWSON’S CREEK executive producer and ELI STONE co-creator Greg Berlanti for a one-off guest appearance this fall. Or as this TV Addict is now calling it: “A Britney” [Source]

Good News: The hilarious and radiant Amy Poehler is rumoured to be in top-secret negotiations to head up the highly anticipated and incredibly secretive spin-off of THE OFFICE. Bad News: Which means, if it’s possible, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE just became even less funny. [Source]

Good News: At yesterday’s Television Critics Association Press Tour, THE SHIELD creative team and cast promise a more satisfying ending than THE SOPRANOS. Bad News: THE SHIELD is ending. [Source]

    surprised that Fringe’s decision to shift filming in Toronto to NYC didn’t make this post.

    Good News: The beloved cow in the pilot gets to stay in Ontario and not catch mad cow disease. Bad News: more unemployed workers in Toronto’s film industry.

    While definitely sad news as a proud Torontonian, I didn’t include FRINGE’s move to New York simply because I thought it was ‘old’ news.

    Believe me, I was definitely looking forward to FRINGE shooting in Toronto. Talk about the ideal opportunity to accidently bump into J.J. Abrams.

    God, I can’t wait for The Shield. This wait till ¿september? is a bitch!

    Since I’m a huge fan of both Amy Poehler and Joey Potter, there’s no bad news here.

    Amy Poehler starring in The Office spinoff would be incredible. It’d be a huge loss for SNL, but a good move for Amy. SNL is hit and miss these days, leaning towards miss.

    Hayden’s song sounds awful.

    scsc,why is it that you canucks(thats the term,right?)always Hate on the USA?I try not to let the arrogance influence the way i feel about your country.
    After all you gave us Cobie Smulders(How i met your mother)one of the funniest,hottest ladies on the planet.
    As for Katie Holmes on Eli Stone, it sounds alright to me for one EP.
    Also i don’t get the love fest for Amy Poehler but i will still check it out…

    Since when did an actress guest staring on a show become the same as a pop star guest staring on a show? Katie Holmes may be more famous now for being married to Tom Cruise, but you’d think her 6 seasons of Dawsons Creek would qualify her as being an actress.
