What's Brewin' in TV News: CBS Wants Your Obama Thoughts, NBC Makes Renewals and More!

  • As if this is a big surprise, but just in case you were actually wondering...NBC has officially renewed "The Office" and "30 Rock"!  Also "Heroes" and "The Biggest Loser".  But after all this announcing, the one show we're all curious about, "Lipstick Jungle", is still left hanging in the balance.  Some people jumped the gun this morning when they claimed "Jungle" was coming back, however the truth of the matter is the show is not canceled yet, but it's also not safe.  Sounds like the network is just waiting to see if something better comes along.  source
  • FOX is a breath away from greenlighting new dramas "Maggie Hill" and "Human Target".  "Hill" is about a female heart surgeoun suffering from schizophrenia (that sounds...interesting) and "Target" is the latest in comic book shows. This one from DC Comics.  source
  • Lifetime is adding another one to their original programming with "Drop Dead Diva", a "comedic drama".  Starring Brooke Elliott, the series is about a gorgeous model wannabe that's been killed in car accident and reincarnated into the body of Jane (Elliott) who's not so perfect on the outside, but very smart.  The network has orderd 12 episodes which are due to debut this summer.  source
  • Hey!  CBS and CBSNews.com want you!  The network is looking to chronicle the first 100 days of Obama's presidency as seen by us average Americans.  The network is looking for videos made by us, the people, that talk about what we think Obama's first steps should be.  Also, they're giving out 50 Flip MinoHD camcorders (one in each state) to make it even easier!  source
  • Just for fun, here's some of the first shots of Jon Hamm and Tina Fey on the set of "30 Rock".  Check it out!
