HBO's 'Ricky Gervais Show' reunites Gervais with Stephen Merchant

By Luaine Lee
PASADENA, Calif. — You can't miss him. British comic Stephen Merchant, who co-wrote the original "The Office" and "Extras" with Ricky Gervais, is 6-foot-7 inches tall. He reached those stratospheric proportions in his early teens, and has felt like an outcast ever since.

MTV dropping 'Music Television' from its logo

By McClatchy-Tribune News Service
LOS ANGELES — Twenty-five years ago, MTV was best known for music videos starring Michael Jackson and Madonna. These days, its reigning queen is not a recording star at all but rather Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the rowdy party girl from the reality series "Jersey Shore."

By Rick Bentley
LOS ANGELES — Decisions as to which network shows will be asked back for the 2010-2011 season will made over the next couple months. For NBC's new comedy "Community," it's like being a college freshman with a 2.0 GPA — it's doing OK but there's no guarantee it will return for a sophomore year.

'Temple Grandin'

By McClatchy-Tribune News Service
LOS ANGELES — At first glance, it might appear that Claire Danes and HBO are a little behind the curve with "Temple Grandin," a biopic about an early autistic advocate and educator. In the years since "Rain Man," autism has created something of a stock character in television and film. Indeed, when Danes was preparing for the role of Grandin, she had to look no further than her husband, Hugh Dancy, who recently starred in "Adam."

On 'Lost,' nothing's irreversible

By McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Nothing's irreversible," says Jack Shepherd (Mathew Fox) to John Locke (Terry O'Quinn) in the second hour of the first episode of "Lost's" final season, and on top of the obvious and tantalizing T-shirt possibilities of this statement, one can't help but imagine it graven in stone on the archway leading into the show's writers' room. Possibly in hieroglyphics of their own creation.

'The Michael Vick Project'

By McClatchy-Tribune News Service
LOS ANGELES — Michael Vick, the ex-Atlanta Falcon, convicted felon, formerly dog-abusing Humane Society volunteer spokesman and current Philadelphia Eagle, is the subject of a 10-part series that begins Tuesday night on BET, "The Michael Vick Project." The word "project" in the title indicates that we are meant to take this seriously (its meaningless use in "The Rachel Zoe Project" notwithstanding). It suggests hard work and the possibility of transformation. That the subject of the series is also one of its producers is worth noting but also par for the course in the new reality we call "reality."
