• TV Power Couple Shuts Down? It seems that the lovely Lindsay Price may have hit a rough patch in her life. First came news that ABC wasn't picking up new episodes of her witch dramedy, Eastwick, and now E! News reports that she and boyfriend Josh Radnor, star of CBS' hit How I Met Your Mother, have parted ways. Reps have declined to comment on the report. We feel bad for the poor sweet kid if it's true. Oh well, at least she's still beautiful and talented.
• Not a Shock: To the great disappointment of almost no one (or, to be fair and specific, only 3.6 percent of voters in our fall TV Save One Show poll), the Hollywood Reporter says that ABC is shutting down the Kelsey Grammer sitcom Hank and taking it off the air post-hasty.
• Don't Panic, Space Travelers: Ratings for the second episode of ABC's V dropped a sharp 29 percent in the 18-49 demographic, but we don't care. Elizabeth Mitchell and Morena Baccarin remain awesome.
Celia in Michigan: Please tell us that Gossip Girl isn't get canceled! If that happens, I will be so upset.
OK, we just got the CW's 2010 schedule announcements, and the good news is (1) the lovely Life UneXpected (or LUX for short) is premiering this winter, and (2) contrary to fan paranoia, Gossip Girl isn't getting canceled. Fear not. Gossip Girl is the CW's creative crown jewel, and it's not going anywhere.
Life UneXpected, if you are unfamiliar with it, is a new CW show reminiscent of Everwood and Gilmore Girls that stars Roswell alum Shiri Appleby. Check out the promo above to see for yourself, but we're pretty sure you will love it.
Now, here's the bad news: Due to some scheduler's predilection for "all-new programming" schemes, figuring out what's airing Mondays on the CW for the next few months is going to suck.
Here's the deal:
On the Mondays from Jan. 18 to Mar. 1, you can watch One Tree Hill at 8 and Life UneXpected at 9.
On Mondays from Mar. 8 to April 12, you can watch Life UneXpected at 8 and Gossip Girl at 9.
And then on Mondays from April 19 to the end of the season in late May, you can watch One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl again in their current slots of 8 and 9 p.m.
To which we can say only, "Isn't there an empty-ish slot on Wednesdays after Top Model? Why not just air LUX there?"
Hank's pretty much a goner, but you can still vote in our Save One Show poll to protect another endangered fall show like Eastwick, Trauma or Melrose Place.
