One of our favorite movies ever, hosted by one of our favorite actors ever, coming to our favorite entertainment medium ever…could it get any better? The adorable and multi-talented Jack Black will host a special two and a half hour television premiere of School of Rock May 5, on FOX.
In case you missed it, School of Rock is a wonderful comedy/drama centering on Black’s character, a diehard rock-n-roll musician who just can’t give up his dream. When he jumps at the opportunity to turn a bunch of stuffy private school kids into the ultimate rock band, everybody benefits. The television premiere will include Jack Black revealing his favorite scenes from the movie, and will showcase a full-length trailer of Black’s new movie, Nacho Libre.

Television is increasingly utilizing other technologies to involve viewers in their favorite shows, and mobile phones are one of the hottest items to do that.
In association with Toyota, FOX will air Prison Break: Proof of Innocence on Sprint mobile phones. The viewer will be subjected to a Toyota commercial, then be able to enjoy a 10-minute mini episode. The new show will have completely new characters and storylines. If you don’t use Sprint as your cell phone carrier, you’ll be able to view the episodes on Toyota’s website.
Really, what will they think of next? TV is already seeping into iPods, the Internet, and cell phones…obviously, the medium is preparing for a world takeover. That’s okay with us!

Apparently. Although the star of the popular sitcom Two and A Half Men has long been known for his bad boy ways, he’s claiming that his wife, Denise Richards, is much, much, worse.
In response to a restraining order filed by the seemingly angelic Richards, Sheen alleges that his marriage is absolutely miserable…and it’s all his wife’s fault. In a scathing interview on Entertainment Tonight, Sheen responds to his wife’s allegations that he is addicted to painkillers, gambles away loads of money online, and is quite perverted, continually surfing Internet porn sites. Ouch!
According to Sheen, it’s all a pack of lies. He says, “It is a reaction to a failed marriage, a reaction to some twisted desire, real or imagined, to hurt, to punish, to discredit, to completely torpedo, to undermine my perception as a responsible father…I find that as unacceptable as anything I’ve ever encountered.”
Oh, boy. This is going to be one ugly divorce. Should make for pretty good TV.

ABC has high ambitions: they claim that an online game version of Lost will be “the largest interactive game ever based on a TV show.” Considering the popularity of the mystery-laden drama, this seems entirely possible.
The game is entitled The Lost Experience and will feature a bonus storyline not seen on the show. Intriguing! Viewers will become detectives, collecting clues such as important telephone numbers along the way. As the show airs around the world, each geographical location will receive different clues. Producers promise that anyone can play, even those viewers completely new to the show.
The first clue will air May 3rd, so pay special attention to the episode. Even though we lose patience with the sloooow build-up of Lost at times, there’s no denying this game sounds like a blast. Will you be playing?

Move over, American Idol. There’s serious girl power in the room. Kathy Valentine and Charlotte Caffey of the Go-Gos and Susanna Hoffs and Vicki Peterson of the Bangles fame are rockin’ out a new reality show for the CW’s first season. These women, members of the wildly popular—at least in the 1980s—‘girl bands’ the Go-Gos and the Bangles, are searching for women who know how to rock. And singing isn’t enough. Unlike the
neophytes on American Idol, these contestants will have to know how to play an instrument, too. Now that’s reality!
The project began as a passion of Kathy Valentine’s, who lamented the lack of women rockers today. (We hear ya, Kathy!) With three more powerful gal musicians aboard, the show’s concept developed and is already promising to be a hit.
“Basically, we believe there are amazing female artists out there waiting for the opportunity to find each other,” Hoffs said. “We’re looking to find them and then be their fairy godmothers.”
Are you a rock-n-roll Cinderella in need of such a fairy godmother? Then get going! The music world needs you…and so does TV.

While it’s a good bet that the popular family drama Gilmore Girls will continue into a seventh season on the new CW network, it’s an absolute certainty it will be doing so without its creators and long-time writers and producers, Daniel Palladino and Amy Sherman-Palladino.
Sources fear that fans will rebel, but perhaps there isn’t as much to worry about as they may think. Fans have not been pleased with the husband/wife creative team for quite a while, when it comes to their favorite blue-eyed mother and daughter. Could this sudden departure explain some things?
Is this why the show has been so…well, lousy as of late? Fans have continually protested the ridiculous storylines and character choices found on the show for the past two seasons, including such eye-rollers as Luke’s ‘long lost daughter’ and the ever-doomed ‘L&L’ love story.
Perhaps the Palladinos lost interest long ago, and have been trying to amuse themselves by manipulating the characters into some sort of grotesque facsimile of the vibrant personalities we used to know and love. Was it boredom that led this show from ‘quirky’ and ‘eccentric’ to ‘outlandish’ and ‘poorly written soap opera’ status? Will bringing in fresh blood give the show back its luster? Will this allow Gilmore Girls to go out with a bang, rather than the whimper it’s been heading for? It may seem like dark days now with this news, but there may be a glimmer of a silver lining there after all.

Is the island getting even roomier? This could be considered spoiler information, so the fully story continues after the jump.
Ah, it’s almost sweeps month. Wonderful sweeps, when television throws caution and common sense to the wind, intent only on grabbing viewers anyway they can. Get ready for a month full of wild plot lines and ratings stunts.
What better way to hook viewers than by convincing them they’re going to die? ABC will launch one of the first sweeps efforts on Tuesday, May 9. The thrillingly titled thriller Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America will examine what would happen if a major outbreak were to hit America.
Although experts have proven that this would be extremely unlikely, when has logic and common sense ever stood in the way of good TV? Nip Tuck’s Joely Richardson will play a beautiful epidemiologist who travels to China to study an avian flu outbreak that has mutated into a form that can easily infect humans. Eek!
Guaranteed to make hypochondriacs of us all, Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America may be worth a look.
