LJ, kindly stop crashing so I can post important thoughts like these.

1. Apparently this is old news, but it's new to me: "Zach Gilford has been cast as the male lead in the Fox single-camera pilot Iceland."

Now, the last time you promised me a beloved star was cast in a Fox pilot, you did not deliver come upfronts, so I would like to see some follow through here. I will be decidedly able to cope with Off The Map's cancellation (well, cope better) if I can keep the hot couple together on one network AND have my remaining favorite stay front and center on a different project.

2. Ugh. Flist! Stop turning into Parks and Recreation zombies. You know what comedy you should watch instead? Mr. Sunshine. You know who's on it tomorrow? Lizzy Caplan; high five for a Class reunion! But it's probably DOA, so I also offer the already-renewed Raising Hope as an alternative quality half hour. And then you could talk about it and I would have somewhere to comment with the thoughts that exist but are never quite enough for an actual post. Just, please, not this idiotic dreck that doesn't even have any pretty people.

3. Occasionally Misbehaving Radio Station (as opposed to Traitorous Radio Station) has taken to playing Cee Lo Green's "Forget You." I still don't understand how Glee saw enough potential in this to cover it -- never mind the horrible Grammy crowd nominating it -- but I especially don't understand why anyone listens to this now that there is a Gwyneth Paltrow/Glee version. The original is just so YOWLY and WHINY, my ears protest. At least Paltrow's attitude owns it.
