Morning Static: Heather Locklear, SMALLVILLE, SNL & More!

Welcome to our new morning round-up of big/interesting TV news that you may have missed over the past 24 hours because unlike us, there’s a fairly good chance that have a life outside of the small screen.

Proof that dreams do come true: Heather Locklear is in talks to reprise her now iconic role as conniving ad executive Amanda Woodward in the CW’s upcoming MELROSE PLACE re-boot. [People]

Lifetime made PROJECT RUNWAY work, with Thursday’s season premiere netting 4.2 million viewers, and a practically unheard of 45% jump from last season’s premiere [The Live Feed]

Reports are flooding in that Megan Fox will open the 35th season of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. In related news, we’ve already got a feeling we know what co-star Andy Samberg’s opening night gift will be! [Life&Style]

Is the CW’s non-existent marketing push for the new season of SMALLVILLE forgiven with this killer trailer for season 9. In a word, “Yes!” [EW Ausiello]

    Oh I hope Heather Locklear comes back for “Melrose 2.0” even if it’s long enough to cause trouble. lol Wonder if she’ll get the ‘special guest star’ title in the opening credits. lol
    Adam Sandberg giving Megan Fox an opening night gift? lol That was funny. No mother loving that night. lol

    True!!! That Smallville Trailer makes up for a multitude of sins.

  • Common Sense

    Let’s put it this way: Since Melrose Place and, later, Spin City, ended…I couldn’t tell you anyplace I’ve seen Heather Locklear. Besides tabloid stories about her marriage breakup and dating David Spade…and *that* sure ain’t payin’ the freight.

    Joining this project is such a no-brainer career move for Heather, a role she was beloved for…at an age where good roles aren’t in abundance. This role would put her smack dab at the top of the entertainment stories, back on magazine covers (in a good way), and revive a career on the downside. Do it, girl, America loves ya and wants you back on weekly TV in a familiar setting.
