RIP Society: Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst Is Developing An Autobiographical Drama For The CW

I just went cross-eyed writing that headline. I can’t process this nonsense. First of all, Fred Durst, of the terrrrrrrrrrible rap-rock group Limp Bizkit, still exists. I had forgotten about him, which was really quite pleasant. Secondly, the CW, a network stocked with mostly shows for teenage girls, has given the guy the green light to…

CW Morning Show Host Calls Sarah Jessica Parker A “Dog”

While I am empathetic to the plight of the CW’s morning show “Eye Opener,” which I did not know existed until I saw this clip, and their desperate need to drum up controversy and attention, their sexist stunt right on the heels of chitchatting about a sexist stunt is beyond idiotic. On Friday, two male…

The CW Is Developing A “Hunger Games”-Like Show Based On The Young Adult Novel “The Selection”

The huge success of The Hunger Games film adaptation did not go unnoticed. Hollywood is currently doing everything it can to figure out how to replicate the success of that project with their own and that includes scooping up similar young adult book series. In steps Kiera Cass’ The Selection and the CW network.

All Up In The Upfronts: The Fall Shows We Are Pumped For, Part 4

Okay, fine, I’ll admit it. I’m a little mad at The CW for canceling “Hellcats,” the show starring Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale as competitive college cheerleaders that happened to be loosely based on my book, CHEER!. That said, I’m getting over it because they are bringing two of my favorites—Sarah Michelle Gellar and Rachel

Tyra Banks, Hilary Duff, And The 90 Bazillion Guest Stars On CW Shows

The CW has gone guest-star crazy! On last night’s episode of “Gossip Girl,” Hilary Duff and Tyra Banks both had major roles, and socialite/designer Tory Burch popped up in a cameo, as did Georgina Chapman, the designer for Marchesa. Hilary is Dan’s new love interest; she plays actress Olivia Burke who enrolls at NYU…

The 90210 Spinoff Preview

My heart literally skips a beat when I hear the opening riff to the 90210 theme song. The CW has released a promo video for the new spin-off, based totally on the original’s opening credits, and I am so so so so excited. I think we can be assured that the fashion i…

No More Watching Gossip Girl Episodes At Work

The Gossip Girl folks are certainly working hard to get us all hot and bothered about the show’s upcoming episodes, but they’re also doing a really good job of annoying us. Not only did The CW move the show’s air day and time from Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST to Mondays at 8 p.m. EST,…
