Wolf To Trade In "Chung CHUNG!" For Clark, Laugh Track

If you're like me, you think of former O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark as one of the funniest broads on the planet.

... I imagine that line of people goes around the building, and back...

So it just makes perfect sense that she's teaming up with Law and Orderian megaproducer Dick Wolf for a trip into sitcom hell.

...hey, Marcia and Dick: we'll have Al Roker save you a seat at the cancellation table...

The plot centers on a hot up-and-coming prosecutor sent to a small courthouse in the Los Angeles area to get taken down a few pegs, where, we assume, wackiness ensues.

The show has received a script commitment from NBC.

Night Moves

ABC's short-lived, shitcanned remake of Night Stalker is moving to Sci Fi Channel.

... giving you an entire new network to ignore the show on!...

The network has picked up all 10 episodes of the series, including three never-before-seen episodes.

... for me and almost countless millions of others, the other seven shows are certainly in the same category...
