HEROES, JERICHO, and UGLY BETTY have all been given full season orders, so you'll get at least 22 episodes of each. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, however, should get the axe within two weeks.
David Bowie is doing a character called 'Lord Royal Highness' on an extra special hour-long episode of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS. There isn't an air date for it yet.
Eddie Izzard has been dropped from the next season of 24. The new season, which starts up in January, will take place almost two years after the ending of last season.
Dan Hedaya will be playing the long lost father af Adrian Monk, later this season on MONK. Good casting on this one.
Because we all care about these things... Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are back 'together' and will be doing another season of THE SIMPLE LIFE. I can't wait to see how this lasts...
Spike has cancelled BLADE... was that still on?
Sci-Fi has renewed STARGATE: ATLANTIS for a fifth season and cancelled STARGATE: SG-1. On the plus side, MGM is ponying up the cash for two movies, one to tie up the series and one for possible theatrical release. This is great, if the second one is released into theatres, it'll be the first time Richard Dean Anderson's been on the big screen since YOUNG DOCTOR IN LOVE. (I wish I was kidding on that...)
I was trying to get into FNL, but after the first 10 minutes, it felt like I was watching a repeat of the movie, and lost interest quickly. Plus, being near the area of FNL, I was disappointed they didn't get to keep the Odessa Permian name.
If this season's 24 starts two years after the ending of the last season, how many years have actually gone by in the 24-verse? It's got to be close to a decade, if not more.
Scene: Mark DeRosa's brain. The year is 2005. Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Come on, another position change? One day it's second base, the next day right field, now it's third? Why, I oughta go into Buck's office and throw his talking fish on the floor! Other part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Hold on, other part of the brain. We're making $500,000 this year. Last year we made $725,000. All for playing a damn kids' game. This is, as they say in Brainland, a no-"us"-er. We're not going to complain. Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: You're right, dude. Let's go back to looking at this crazy porn Teixeira gave us!

According to Wikipedia:
Season 2: 18 months after S1 S3: 3 years after S2. S4: 18 months after S3. S5: 18 months after S4. S6: 20 months after S5.
Total time since the first day: 9 years, 2 months.

I like the idea, since the series finale was pretty weak and I think Jack Bauer deserves a real ending. But, I have a feeling that if this limited series does well, they're banking on doing more because of $$$ which might mean another weak ending.
