Good News, Bad News: CHUCK, SNL, 90210 and More!

Good News: NBC has already gone ahead and picked up CHUCK for its entire second season Bad News: Which as much as we love CHUCK, probably says a lot more about the sorry state of the Peacock Network’s fall slate. We’re just sayin’, NBC President Ben Silverman, it’s probably about time you updated your resume. [Source]

Good News: The TV Addict correctly predicted prior to yesterday’s announcement that NBC would snag Michael Phelps to host the 34th season opener of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. Bad News: When was the last time a sports personality didn’t stink up Studio 8H? [Source]

Good News: AMERICAN IDOL winner Ruben Studdard managed to extend his fifteen minutes of fame by making headlines once again. Bad News: For reportedly squandering his earnings and not being able to pay nearly 200,000 in state and federal taxes. I mean seriously, has Richard Hatch not taught reality TV stars anything? [Source]

Good News: The CW threw a spectacular launch party for 90210 on Saturday. Bad News: Obviously this TV Addict’s invite got lost in the mail. [see pics]

    Peyton Manning was easily one of the best guests last year :)

    I was going to the same thing, Seat! And I hate the Colts.

    So excited about Chuck. Let’s just hope NBC decides to AIR all those 22 episodes.

    Well, dude, maybe if you hadn’t come out and immediately trashed the idea of Shannen Doherty reprising her “Brenda Walsh” character, your invite would’ve been hand-delivered. I always say, it’s best not to criticize something before you’ve got all the facts or before you see the finished product.

    When did I ever come out and immediately trash the idea of Shannen Doherty joining the show? I for one can’t wait for the 90210 re-boot. But that’s not to say I’m incredible skeptical that it can be pulled off.

    Yeah, 42F pointed out, Peyton Manning was pretty hilarious (and his Oreo commercials with brother Eli, and the Williams sisters AND the one about the games they play off-football season are both pretty hilarious)!

    That said. not sure how funny Phelps actually would be.

    I like your little advice to Ben Silverman.
