Today in TV News - 'Heroes' Creator Decides to Revamp, Clooney/'ER' Rumor and more!

  • CMT is bringing back it's singing competition series "Gone Country" for season 3.  This is the reality show where celebs take a swing at country music and in store for us this time are George Clinton, Sheila E., Taylor Dayne, Mikey Dolenz, Richard Greico, American Idol Finalist Justin Guarini and Miss USA Tara Conner.  It is currently in production.  
  • Not only did ABC call it quits for the new show "Single With Parents", now they've also cut down on two more new series "Castle" and "The Unusuals".  "Castle" (about a horror novelist who helps solve crimes for the NYPD) has been cut from 13 to 10 episodes and it looks like "The Unusuals" (a dramedy about a NY police precinct) wil be recieving the same treatment. source
  • Tim Kring, creator of Heroes, has heard our cries and decided to take the hit series, that appears to be jumping the shark, back to the drawing board. Kring says he will be simplifying the show, adding in more character development and tossing old plot twists. IMO, it's about time. I hope it works!  source
  • Noah Wyle went ahead and announced to TV Guide that from what he heard "George said 'absolutley' schedule permitting," referring to the possibility of Mr. Clooney returning for the "ER" season finale. He also said we can definitely expect to see Eriq La Salle (Dr. Benton).  Guess we just have to keep waiting!  source
