What's Brewin in TV News - Sarah Jessica Goes Reality, DTV Date Extension Vote Denied (so far) and More

  • Well the switch to digital was delayed by the Senate but unfortunately the House had a harder time passing the bill. The vote failed by 32 votes (258 in favor, 168 opposed).  However people are still keeping their hopes up that it will be put to yet another vote and passed before the looming February 17th deadline.  source
  • NBC's new reality show "Who Do You Think You Are?", which takes a unique look into the personal lives of celebrities, just landed two big names to star: Sarah Jessica Parker and Susan Sarandon.  Executive producer Lisa Kudrow ("Friends") will also be featured in the new show which is due to begin airing on April 20th.  source
  • ABC greenlighted three pilots: "Inside the Box", "I, Claudia" and an untitled based on the Argentinian drama "Brothers & Detectives".  "Box" centers around a female news producer and her colleagues at a Washington network news bureau.  "Claudia" follows a young prosecuting attorney who doesn't know that one day she'll be in the running for president.  The untitled project is about a low-level detective who finds out he has a brilliant 11-year old borther who happens to be good at helping solve crimes.  source
  • Yesterday, we and others reported that Donnie Osmond squealed about being a contestant on the upcoming "Dancing With the Stars".  Well like most rumors, this turns out to be false.  Donnie came out today saying he would not be appearing on the dance show after all and woops...he might not have even been asked.  However, if they do ask him, he'll be happy to dance in the fall.  source
