Twitter feed "Shit My Dad Says" gets picked up by CBS for a sitcom

The Escapist : News : Sh*t My Dad Says Becoming a Sitcom I know I'm not alone in thinking he makes up most of the stuff his dad says, right?
The popular Twitter feed Sh*t My Dad Says is reportedly being developed into a sitcom for CBS. Sh*t My Dad Says debuted on Twitter in August and has since grown into a genuine sensation, with over 700,000 people following the nuggets of oft-profane wisdom dispensed by Justin Halpern's 73-year-old father. "The baby will talk when he talks, relax," the elder Halpern said in one gem. "It ain't like he knows the cure for cancer and he just ain't spitting it out." That, apparently, is all CBS needs to make a sitcom. The network has picked up a project based on the feed (which will no doubt be relabeled to Stuff My Dad Says or something similar) being co-written by Halpern and Patrick Schumacker. David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, the creators of Will & Grace, are serving as executive producers and will supervise the writing.

Fox cancels Dollhouse

Fox cancels 'Dollhouse'--The Live Feed | THR Surprising absolutely no one.
"Dollhouse" is closing its doors at Fox. The network has canceled Joss Whedon's cult fave, which in May beat the odds with a second-season pickup despite low ratings. The sci-fi series, which is filming episode 11, is expected to finish its 13-episode order, and Whedon is expected to give the show a proper ending. After some dismal performance this fall, despite the ratings bumps "Dollhouse" got from DVR viewing, Fox benched the show for the November sweep after four episodes.

Parents group calling on local stations to not air new episode of "Gossip Girl" over threesome scene

Group urges CW stations not to air 'Gossip Girl' - Yahoo! News So murder, rape, suicide and all the other things you see every night on tv are okay, but if some teenagers have a threesome it's time to freak the fuck out? Nice priorities, Parents Television Council. But these are the kind of people who assume tv and video games should all be made for children, and that kids' minds are easily warped little eggshells that need protecting.
NEW YORK – On-air promos for a sexual threesome on an upcoming episode of "Gossip Girl" have spurred the Parents Television Council to ask affiliates of the CW network to pre-empt the show. Airing the teen tryst, which is being teased in an ad as a "3SOME," is "reckless and irresponsible," said PTC president Tim Winter in a statement Wednesday. The threesome involves three main characters in the show but they are not identified in the promos. The PTC has urged CW affiliate stations not to air the episode, scheduled for Nov. 9. In a letter to the affiliates, Winter asked: "Will you now be complicit in establishing a precedent and expectation that teenagers should engage in behaviors heretofore associated primarily with adult films?"
Funny, I thought threesomes were primarily associated with post-college drinking.

Gore Vidal comments on the Polanski thing

Lawyers, Guns and Money: Misogynist Crank of the Day
In September, director Roman Polanski was arrested in Switzerland for leaving the U.S. in 1978 before being sentenced to prison for raping a 13-year-old girl at Jack Nicholson’s house in Hollywood. During the time of the original incident, you were working in the industry, and you and Polanski had a common friend in theater critic and producer Kenneth Tynan. So what’s your take on Polanski, this many years later? I really don’t give a fuck. Look, am I going to sit and weep every time a young hooker feels as though she’s been taken advantage of? I’ve certainly never heard that take on the story before. First, I was in the middle of all that. Back then, we all were. Everybody knew everybody else. There was a totally different story at the time that doesn’t resemble anything that we’re now being told. What do you mean? The media can’t get anything straight. Plus, there’s usually an anti-Semitic and anti-fag thing going on with the press – lots of crazy things. The idea that this girl was in her communion dress, a little angel all in white, being raped by this awful Jew, Polacko – that’s what people were calling him – well, the story is totally different now from what it was then.
