ONE WEEK AWAY TO THE FULL RETURN * ABC's Monday night movie is Batman Begins. This is the last airing of America's Toughest Jobs on Monday night. Later this week, it moves to its fall Friday timeslot. * Tuesday brings us season premieres of The Biggest Loser (6th season), and House (5th season), along with the timeslot premiere of FOX's Fringe. We say goodbye to ABC's Wipeout and CBS's Big Brother, each of which have their season finales tonight. * Thursday's news is the 8th season premiere of Smallville, and the 4th season premiere of Supernatural. Like last week there's a special 30-minute episode of America's Got Talent. We say goodbye to Flashpoint, which airs its 9th episode of the season. They made 13 episodes, and there's no word on when or if we'll see those other 4 episodes. Maybe it could fill-in for a canceled show in the fall. * As noted, the first episode of America's Toughest Jobs on Friday airs this week. We also get the 31st season premiere of 20/20. * ABC's Saturday Night Football game features Georgia @ Arizona State. NBC's Sunday Night Football is Dallas @ Green Bay. In cable news, G4 is airing the first four episodes of Spaceballs: The Animated Series. Um, what? ABC is all special programming on Sunday, airing Jimmy Kimmel's Big Night of Stars followed by the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Wow, I remember when G4 was making a big advertising push for this show during the 2007 Comic-Con ... then they just sorta stopped talking about it.
The fact that they delayed the premiere for over a year (and that this post is first place where I've actually heard that they're finally going to start airing episodes) does not bode well for the quality of this show ...
But I'm still gonna watch it :)
The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"
It felt like a cross between 30 Rock and the Office (but the last two seasons of the Office, unfortunately). The actual concept of the show is really strong, updating the "Muppet Show" to a late-night talk show hosted by Miss Piggy.
