Everybody wants Amy Poehler. And rumor has it, she’s going to give it to primetime! SNL’s Emmy-nominated, crazysexycool comedianne has been in talks to join the cast of a much buzzed about spin-off of The Office. So far, one of the funny men of Human Giant, Aziz Ansari, is slated for the show, but there’s still no word on who is going to play the Steve Carrell-style boss role. While Amy seems to be the top contender, the problem is she’s knocked up for reals, like her character in Baby Mama — except with her real husband, Will Arnett, not Tina Fey. The spin-off was set to start taping in the fall so it could air after the Superbowl, but that would also coincide with her baby bump making its debut. But we think Amy can do anything! NBC, she’s worth waiting for. Amy, go and get your show, baby! [Reuters] Keep reading »

I never forgot your betrayal Kelly! [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »
Well, clearly the producers of the recently announced 90210 spin-off haven’t had a chance to read our perfectly outlined concept for their show. Variety now has details on the project, which sadly does not include Guidance Counselor Valentine, Principal Sanders, or school nerd Hannah Zuckerman. Lame! That said, as opposed the original series’ all-white cast, the spin-off already has an African-American character and a character of Middle-Eastern descent, not to mention a “wannabe socialite who hosts her own YouTube series” named Silver. As in…David Silver?! One can hope! [Variety] Keep reading »
Ugh. Why haven’t TV producers learned not to eff with a good thing? Have we learned nothing from the crapfest that was Saved By The Bell: The New Class? Apparently not, because the CW network is developing a spin-off of the greatest teen high school drama ever, Beverly Hills 90210, possibly to include stars from the original series — because, you know, none of them are doing anything of note. I can already envision it now….
