I love Neil Patrick Harris, it’s amazing really, he went from being Doogie Houser, to obscurity and all of a sudden a few years ago he bounces back into the public spotlight. That’s called endurance people. Fresh from two successful hosting gigs, NPH is set to take on the Emmy Awards. According to our blog partner TV.com “Harris has the hosting bug, and that’s perfectly fine with us as he’s damn good at it. Earlier this year, he hosted The 63rd Annual Tony Awards and The 7th Annual TV Land Awards, both to positive reviews, and also delivered a memorable segment at CBS’ upfronts in which he illustrated the "Bro Code." Now it looks as though he’s getting ready for his biggest hosting challenge yet — the Emmys.” Check out the full story here.
Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello reports that NBC has cancelled the quirky, love-it-or-hate-it cop/conspiracy series, Life [a series which I gave a glowing review last fall – that being the way life goes…].
Ausiello is also reporting that My Name is Earl and Law & Order have joined Chuck and Medium on the list of shows whose fates will be determined later – May 19, to be exact.
Further, Ausiello notes that if Chuck returns, it will be on a new night – and one the network’s new shows [likely Parenthood] would lead out from Heroes.
NBC is also prepared to carry on with Law & Order: SVU, with or without Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni – Ausiello reports that NBC has made them an offer to continue as Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler.
