TV Tues, Supplemental - Curse You, CW!

As many of you have probably heard by now, UPN and WB will be merging together in the Fall to create a new network, which at this point they're planning on calling "The CW" for some insane reason. The new channel is going to follow the current WB programming schedule of airing two hours of programming M-F, and three hours on Sunday. Of course, this means that some shows are going to get dropped from the lineup, and several in development shows are now very questionable. I'm not exactly saddened that the proposed Aquaman series might not make it to air (not because I don't like Aquaman, but because the series proposal makes Smallville sound like Shakespeare), but the news that they've pulled the plug on this one bums me out; it sounded like it had a lot of promise in that premise. Meanwhile, this article about Supernatural gives me a little bit of hope that it will be back, but as it says, everything's up in the air right now. Also questionable: Everwood. At least it sounds like Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars are safe . . . for the moment.

Now, on a lighter note: an interview with Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs

And on an even lighter note: Triumph does the weather
