Everything Old is New Again: Nickelodeon's GUTS
Remember Nickelodeon's old game show, GUTS, with all the games, obstacle courses and slime? (For a refresher, watch the video above.) Well, the show is getting a new lease on life, in an updated version that will most likely air next TV season. The new show, called My Family's Got GUTS will no doubt include a lot of the same elements as that old school fave, Family Double Dare.
And move over Mark Summers. Nickelodeon has tapped E! News movie expert, Ben Lyons, to host.
Children of the 90s, you can go home again...

Pushing Daisies: What's the Haps for Season 2?
Nothing is more certain in the world of Pushing Daisies than non-touching kisses, murder, and oh yeah, pie. So, what's in store for season 2? Lots and lots of goodies. The spoilerific tidbits coming out of Comic Con include a plotline involving Olive living at a nunnery, Emerson facing ghosts from his past and erm, some of the most delicious guest stars to add to the entertaining cast of characters. Who, pray tell? Well, as mentioned before, Debra Mooney will guest as Emerson's mamma (!), Diana Scarwid (Wonderfalls) and as you'll see in the video below, French Stewart and Missi Pyle.

Everwood Star Will Be Pushing Up 'Daisies'
I don't know about you, but this casting coup has me giddy with excitement. I love my Everwood peeps and the idea of seeing Debra Mooney on the boob tube again has made my day!

Weeds: No Man is Pudding
Nency then takes her out to find Andy at the border crossing. But alas, Andy isn't there. And again, Celia gets the brunt of Nancy's anger, courtesy of a drive with her head in the car window that I'm sure would make anyone else barf all over the Prius. When they get that settled, Nancy gets back to finding Andy...
And what's our favorite Botwin uncle been up to? Oh nothing much. Just latching on to a coyote while making the trip back to the US. And his fee for crossing the border? Not much, if you think about it. Just $6 and his Fall Guyz belt buckle. But he soon finds out the others don't have it so lucky. The coyote is breaking arms, stealing money and exacting sexual favors. Andy decides to fight back since he still has the gun Nancy gave him. He pops the coyote in the knee, gets back his $6 and delivers an amusing punchline that, unfortunately, no one hears, "Who's the fall guy now, coyote ugly?"
Back home at Botwin Central, Bubbi's death and Lenny's disappearance allow the family to be more open with the weed business. Silas starts drilling a hole in the wall, only to discover a bee hive. The bees are none to happy about this turn of events and Shane, Silas and poor allergic Doug end up with the brunt of the stings.
Well, at least Nancy didn't get stung. At least, not yet. She blackmails Captain Till into conveniently "forgetting" about her and Celia. As for where she stands with Guillermo, he incorrectly assumes that Celia is Nancy's crazy lesbian lover. And then gives her a new job: manager of a women's maternity store.
Considering customer service is hardly Nancy's strong suit, I don't see this working to her advantage. And certainly not if there's a excavation going on underneath the store that gives off a distinct feeling of hell. WTF, indeed. So, what do you think is going on underneath the maternity store? And what exactly has Nancy gotten herself into?

OMFG! It's Bluck.
Well, what would Diddy's all-white Hamptons party be without some Chuck and Blair action? While the terrible twosome look fairly cozy in this pic, don't expect their relationship to be smooth sailing next season. I'm hearing the duo will spend season 2 duking it out, in part because of Chuck's dalliances over the summer. Ah, music to my ears. Nothing disturbed me more than the lovey-dovey scene last year's finale.

Chuck and Hellboy
The GE Empire strikes again. In an effort to promote Universal's latest flick in the Hellboy franchise, the red giant teams up with NBC's very own super computer, Chuck Bartowski. Watch the marketing possibilities open up above!

Brenda Could Be Back!!!
According to Ausiello, the stalling point is three-fold. There's the ever-present issue of money, her actual storyline, and oh yeah, half the original cast hated her guts. The now infamous catfights between Jennie Garth, who's already agreed to guest star, and Doherty, could get another go-around. For her part, Garth says, "A lot of time has passed, and I'm a big girl. I'd have no problem with her coming on the show."
I guess only time will tell. And while we wait, let's hope the show gets Luke Perry on board. I tried to call him, but all I got was an answering machine with the message, "This is Dylan. You know the drill." Argh.
