Scooplets: 'House,' 'Big Bang,' and more!

TV-Scooplets-house_l •    Greek: ABC Family’s fratastic soap is firming up plans for Father-Daughter Weekend with the hiring of Everwood‘s great Tom Amandes as Jordan’s father. An ex-jock and avid sports fan, Pops is under the impression that his little girl is dating a football player. Imagine his surprise (read: horror) when he meets her real BF, Rusty.

•    House: With production slated to resume next week, House is looking to cast an actress in her early 20s to mid 30s who is proficient at playing the cello. Sounds like a run-of-the-mill patient-of-the-week, right? That’s what I thought. But then I read the fine print on the casting notice: Interested parties must be available from June 15 through July 15.  (Rumor has it this could be another one of House’s fellow cuckoo nesters.)

•    Pushing Daisies: Never underestimate the power of Ask Ausiello to right the wrongs of the world. Per an Emmy insider, hours after I reported that Pushing Daisies leads Lee Pace and Anna Friel had yet to enter their names for Emmy consideration, Academy officials approached their reps and gave them one last chance to get their clients on the ballot before the Thursday-night deadline. Jump ahead 24 hours: The official ballots are released and both Pace and Friel are on it!

•    Burn Notice: Producers of the USA smash are courting Tyne Daly to appear opposite her former Cagney & Lacey partner, Sharon Gless, for an episode to air in early 2010.  BTW, last Thursday’s Burn attracted 6 million viewers — the show’s most-watched season premiere yet. (Look for my ATV interview with Jeffrey Donovan later this week!)

    Hey Ausiello I’ve got a scoop for you! What website is annoying the $%$#%#$ out of everyone that goes there with a stupid endless ass showtime promos? HHMM you get three guesses in the comments section.

    Bern, there’s a thing called adblock, you might want to look into it. And anger management classes as well.

  • calm down over there bern…

    hey bern, in case you haven’t noticed, the economy isn’t doing too well and the only thing paying for these sites to stay afloat right now are these things called ads…

    What a great show of the cast of BBT. I love it.

  • sally

    Well, that’s not really news on House, I’ve heard that before, but still, I’m excited to hear that they will actually deal with House’s stay at Mayfield and not just pretend it never happened!

  • ada

    the question that really deserves an answer is : will House suck this season as much as last season? Soon we’ll see it featured in Soap Digest.
    I’m guessing as long as House is in the mental institution it can’t be tooooooo bad and soap-opera-ish but I hope he won’t have that huge beard Hugh Laurie is growing for a long time.

  • Michael

    Burn Notice is a great show with one of the best casts around.

  • pai

    Yay for Lee Pace and Anna Friel. I hope they and Kristin Chenoweth and Chi McBride get their due for Daisies!

  • asaki

    Looking forward to House next season!

  • ann

    I can’t wait for weeds and nurse jackie to start…cause then maybe they’ll take those horrible ads down.

  • bern

    Ha good one ann! hey nicholars there’s also this thing called my @#$%^&. Why don’t you suck it.

  • Maserda

    Nice magazine cover page! Nice to see them all dressed up.
    And good news about Emmy ballots includine Lee Pace and Anna Friel! Not as good as say Pushing Daisies being put back on the air, but it’s right that they deserve to be recognized.

  • mel

    I didn’t click on this story but the stupid Ad that pop up clicked me onto it. This is the third time that’s happened. Fvck this site until they stop the sh!t.

  • Luisa

    Well, I got a wee bit too excited when I saw Daisies on your tweet. But still. That’s great. Lee and Anna should both be nominated at the very least. I miss PD…
