This (mostly) Just In...

The Office: The Soap Opera Continues - Everyone's favorite comedy (after 30 Rock, natch) returns tonight with an hour long episode. When we left the Dunder-Mifflinites, Jim's proposal to Pam was cockblocked by Andy's proposal to Angela...who was later spotted by Phyllis getting it on with Dwight. Oh the drama! I'm most looking forward to seeing what happens with the new Toby (Amy Ryan) and Michael. They seem like a match made in heaven, but I'm still not convinced she not just placating him. All will, hopefully, be revealed.

Ricky Gervais: Oscar Host? - After his hilarious appearance on the Emmy's, rumors are swirling Ricky could be next year's Oscar host. This may be filed under the "who really cares" area of your brain, but I'd love to spend 3 hours with Ricky next February...or anytime really.

Survivor: Now in HD - The show no one still watches also returns tonight in the "earth's last Eden," Gabon, Africa. The show will be broadcast in HD for the first time in it's billion year history. Should make for some really gorgeous TV (except when the horribly unwashed humans appear on screen).

Clay Aiken: Gay - I don't know if you've heard (and I'm sure you are shocked if you haven't), but everyone (read: my grandma's) favorite American Idol runner-up is gay. Sorry Grandma.

Hunter Johansson: Future Husband - Why did no one ever tell me Scarlett Johansson has a twin brother? Did it just escape your mind to mention it, people? You really want me to just die alone with 20 cats, don't you? Jerks.

I don't think the Oscars are cool enough to pick Ricky Gervais as a host. Although they did pick Jon Stewart ...

Can't wait for The Office to start! My life is hollow!

I am ridiculously excited about The Office as well. I'm more hollow than Liz! Nyah nyah!

Ricky Gervais as Oscars host? Ooh, not sure what to think about that. He makes me laugh and cringe in equal measures, but it could be worth it to hear his undoubtably sarcastic comments for best costume and best sound editing.

The early rumors were that they were considering asking Justin Timberlake to host to attract larger numbers, but that was before the announcement that next year's producers would be Bill Condon (Oscar winning screenwriter of Gods and Monsters, who also wrote and directed Kinsey and Dreamgirls) and his Dreamgirls co-producer Laurence Mark. I see them as the kind of producers that would be on board for a JT hosted Oscars. The Academy is looking for larger ratings and I don't think Ricky Gervais is the one who can deliver, but I would rather see him host than Timberlake.

I think the Oscars should get someone timely, like Amos and possibly Andy. Those radio serials are something else.
