The Simpsons

Fox

Jen here with a superquick Fox exec session rundown, because I'm totally messed up from reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows cover to cover last night. And don't worry, no HP spoilers here. We're not monsters, you know!

  • Jon Stewart (hells yeah), Stephen Colbert and Lionel Richie are all guesting on this season of The Simpsons. BTW, just between you, me and the fly on the wall, the Lionel Richie part was originally offered to Smokey Robinson, but he didn't like the storyline as written. Apparently, there was a private-plane crash that spooked him.

  • As first reported by the Hollywood Reporter on Friday night, Ms. Cherry Jones (the Broadway star who played the lady sheriff in M. Night Shyamalan's Signs) is gonna be the new chick prez on 24. You go, girl.

  • More Hell's Kitchen coming to you. I mention this only because they sponsored the breakfast  this morning, and I really needed some coffee.

  • Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton showed up for the Back to You panel. I have to say, I think this may be an awesome show. It's getting little to no buzz, but it's one of those television thoroughbreds I can't help but put a little money on. Of course, fat lot of good being a thoroughbred did for Studio 60, but still, these people got mad skills.

Okay, that's all for now. Tune in later for more from So You Think You Can Dance and Bones.
