E! Still Doesn't Get It

Devastating news: E! Entertainment Television is returning Star Jones Reynolds to the red carpet.

Despite rumors that her contract would not be renewed, Jones Reynolds will host the network's Emmy Awards arrivals show, Live From the Red Carpet, on September 18th.

It will be her second year covering Emmy arrivals, and the umpteenth year she's bugged the living shit out of me.

Park It: Three More Years for Comedy Central

Dave Chappelle may not want their money, but Matt Stone and Trey Parker will happily continue to spend some serious Comedy Central cash for three more years.

The network has renewed South Park through 2008. The show returns with new episodes in October, and the new contract will kick in starting with the next season.

Personally, I think Stone and Parker should be focussing more energy on a Team America sequel. (Fuck, yeah!)

Will Stars Run Their Mouth On The Katrina Telethon?

Who will be the next performer to call President Bush a racist on national television?

Tune in to Friday's Shelter From the Storm: A Concert for the Gulf Coast, playing on a network or station near you, to find out.

Recording stars Sheryl Crow, Alicia Keys, Paul Simon, Neil Young and the Dixie Chicks, along with comedian Chris Rock and movie star Jack Nicholson, will headline the telethon, set to air air around the world. But it's not clear if networks will tolerate any straying from the script (a la Kanye West, who accused the President of racism on an NBC fundraiser last week).

The King Is Dead

King of the Hill creator Mike Judge says this season, the show's tenth, will be its last.

To which we say: King of the Hill is still on?

Fox says no official decision has been made about the show's future.

Arrested: Fonzie Out, Chachie In

With Henry Winkler now busy with his own series, CBS' Out of Practice, what will Arrested Development's Bluth do for legal representation?

Well, producers have their answer- and Happy Days are here again. Another Days veteran, Scott Baio, will guest star in at least one episode as the Bluths' new lawyer.

Surprising he took the role, since he has virtually no chance of scoring with chick-lovin' co-star Portia DeRossi.
