-Could Portia DeGeneres find herself waltzing with a female professional on Dancing with the Stars? It’s believed American audiences could soon see its first same-sex DWTS pairing since the Israeli version recently did the same.
-Is Disney's Sonny with a Chance in jeopardy? It’s unclear how Demi Lovato’s decision to seek treatment for personal issues will affect production. The show was set to resume filming in mid-January.
-Today will be Gene Shalit’s final morning on the Today show. The longtime film critic will be signing off the program after 40 years. “It’s enough already,” the 85-year-old said.
-Speaking of retirement, this will be Jo Frost’s last season as Supernanny. "[Having children] is not an option when you are traveling and working 46 weeks out of the year. Proper balance will allow me to date and have a relationship and look at my own future of having a family," she explained.

- Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm): “Sarah meets a stranger (Brian Austin Green) who shares a similar past.” They were once both white rappers?
- Dance War (ABC, 8pm): “The touring company of ‘High School Musical’ performs.” The contestants, now left with inferiority complexes, are unable to go on.
- Flavor of Love (VH1, 9pm): Third season premiere. Is it a coincidence that a Flav-ex has since show up on Celebrity Rehab?
- Prison Break (FOX, 8pm): “The escape attempt is successful for some, if not all, of the escapees.” Apparently you can miss weeks of this show and not miss a thing.
Now that The Moment of Truth has successfully breezed through its two-week trial run, the show is being rewarded with a nice bonus. FOX - apparently believing the reality show’s gimmick won’t tire quickly - has added on another 13 episodes to its initial 12-pack order. (I’m guessing it was the program’s stellar debut that instilled the network with such confidence.)
Although a list of potential seatwarmers dwindled after the show’s first two airings (seems the attention seekers weren’t too thrilled about what they had seen), other ballsy contestants will be stepping up. Production on the additional segments will begin on Feb. 11th.
Just when you think the Trumpster is down and out, he just keeps coming back for more.
Even though his ‘recruitment’ show once faced cancellation, it’s had a reversal of fortune and now been granted an extension. Impressive numbers for Celebrity Apprentice has made NBC think twice about letting Donald Trump and the reality staple go too soon. (No rush decisions should ever be made during a writers’ strike.) Come this time next year, we will be seeing a second round of stars vie for credibility and airtime.
Seriously, a boardroom full of D-listers is really the only thing that keeps viewers attracted to the show these days. It’s not like anyone really believes The Apprentice winners do anything for Trump’s organization anymore.

- Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2008 (ABC, 10pm): Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest will co-host the event. Is Miley Cyrus old enough to be associated with a drinking holiday?
- New Year’s Eve Live (FOX, 11pm): Idol alums Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis will perform. In just a few short weeks, we’ll start caring about a new batch of idols.
- Tila Tequila’s New Year’s Eve Masquerade (MTV, 11pm): NYC masked ball will include Kid Rock and Mary J. Blige. Has it already been a year since we were forced to watch Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo kiss?
- NBC’s New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly (NBC, 11:35pm): Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz will be performing. This may be the first time in a while someone has stayed awake to watch Daly’s show.
