What's Brewin' in TV News: Obama on the Big Screen, 'Prison Break' Canceled and More...

  • So Barack Obama is about to be sworn in and you're thinking your TV just isn't big enough?  Fear not!  MSNBC and Screenvision got together and have decided to air the inaugural coverage in 27 movie theaters across the country!  Admission is free and apparently MSNBC.com is handing them out. source
  • Howie Mandel was rushed to a Toronto hospital yesterday for an irregular heart beat.  Today he's doing fine and reports are that it wasn't a heart attack and he'll be back at work tomorrow. source
  • I hate saying this because when it first began I was a fan of the show but....FINALLY 'Prison Break' has seen it's last days.  Fox officially canceled the series,  announced a 'Til Death' renewal and also plans to greenlight 5 (live action) comedy pilots. As far as 'Prison' goes, there are still 4 more episodes to air with the possibility of a couple more to close out the series. source
  • Two big ABC shows are losing two big stars: Ashely Jensen (Christina) is leaving "Ugly Betty" and Melissa George (Sadie) is leaving "Grey's Anatomy". Word is Melissa is leaving on good terms and just wants to "do something else".  Ashley is asking to be let out of her contract which apparently isn't a big deal because she wasn't going to play much of a role next season anyhow.  source

It's definitely time for Prison Break to go. I haven't watched for a couple of years and I just kind of assumed that was the case all around, but saw that the ratings are still decent. They have some serious die hard fans.

I love Ashley Jensen. Maybe this means another season of Extras?
