Good News, Bad News: SMASH, DEXTER, THE SIMPSONS & More!

Good News: In preparation for a retooled second season, newly-minted SMASH showrunner Josh Safran has officially handed Ellis (Jaime Cepero), Dev (Raza Jaffrey), Michael Swift (Will Chase) and Frank (Brian d’Arcy James) their walking papers. Bad News: Reports indicate that Julia’s son Leo (Emory Cohen) has been spared from what would otherwise be characterized as a smashing shakeup. [Source]

Good News: Showtime has just announced that a sexy killer has signed onto DEXTER for a multi-episode seventh season arc. Bad News: By killer, we of course mean notorious showkiller Jason Gedrick. [Source]

Good News: The hunt continues for DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER. Bad News: More specifically, the hunt for a new job, as A&E opts to cancel the popular eight year-old series after failing to reach an agreement with star Duane “Dog” Chapman. [Source]

Good News: THE SIMPSONS is making a return to the big screen. Bad News: The Maggie-centric four-and-a-half-minute dialogue-free short film will require fans of THE SIMPSONS to pony up the cost of a movie ticket (D’oh! dough!) since The Longest Daycare will only be shown before Fox’s upcoming animated film cash-cow Ice Age: Continental Drift.

    The SMASH news is great. Things are already looking up. Looking through what was strong with s1 and getting rid of the fat is the right move. Too bad they couldn’t get rid of more fat.
