I’m not watching anything…

Hello! I’m currently over in Australia, and haven’t set the My Sky to record anything tonight.

If you’re a fan of Winners and Losers, it’s the season finale tonight! I only ever saw the pilot and never got around to watching any more episodes. Season two hasn’t started over here in Australia yet.

If you’re a fan of Gary Busey, he’s guest-starring on Two and a Half Men tonight. And, if you watch Shortland Street, here’s what’s happening tonight.

What are you watching tonight?

7:30pm Wednesday, April 4 on TV2

Prepare for another invasion of Gary Busey! After causing hilarity on The Celebrity Apprentice, Gary Busey returns to TV2 tonight in an intentional bid to be funny, in All New Two and a Half Men.

With Alan (Jon Cryer) still struggling to deal with the death of his brother Charlie (Charlie Sheen), he is sent another challenge in life when forced to contend with Gary Busey, playing himself. Alan feels as though his sanity is already slipping away, and his encounter with Busey will test that even further.

Busey will play a patient in a mental hospital – perfect casting considering he has recently appeared on a US show called Celebrity Rehab, and because many viewers of The Celebrity Apprentice began to question his sanity following his strange actions on the show, including a screaming match with fellow celebrity Meatloaf.

US TV network CBS has announced it’s official list of what shows will be renewed and there are some big name shows missing from the list. Namely 2 and a Half Men.

Apparently Warner Bros are in preliminary negotiations regarding ordering more seasons. As Chuck Lorre said earlier this week, “It’s unusual when they cancel a show that’s in the Top 10, so I think there’s hope… [but] everybody’s gotta sign back up” — namely, Ashton Kutcher.

Also missing from the list are Unforgettable, Rules of Engagement, A Gifted Man, CSI:NY and CSI: Miami.

Here are the official renewed shows

2 Broke Girls
The Big Bang Theory
How I Met Your Mother

Will Angelina Jolie be on Ryan Murphy’s – American Horror Story ?

American Horror Story is going after Angelina Jolie… sort of.

Ryan Murphy & Co. have quietly begun casting a major new Season 2 arch nemesis for Jessica Lange — and they’re using one of Jolie’s most famous movie roles as their template.

The series regular character, Gia, is described as a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot who harbors a secret — “think Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted,” reads the casting notice. As such, interested actresses should be in their mid-20s and Caucasian. Intrestingly Jolie also played the lead role of Gia in the telemovie about a supermadel of the same name and won an Emmy.

Production on Horror Story‘s second season doesn’t get underway in mid-July, so producers are giving themselves ample time to find the right performer for the plum part. I really can’t see the enigmatic Jolie heading to TV can you?

2 Broke Girls to Get Cameo from Martha Stewart

Glee to do Whitney Tribute!

Though Glee has honored the late Whitney Houston with a timely cover of “I Will Always Love You,” it has been confirmed that New Directions will once again and more purposefully celebrate the musical icon this season with one of its signature tribute episodes.

First reported by E! Online, the drama is currently in production on the special installment that centers on the growing pains of Glee‘s graduating seniors. “It’s using Whitney’s music as a way to say goodbye,” a source tells the site. “A way to respectfully say ‘thank you’ for her music.”

Whitney Houston passed away February 11th 2012

Jon Cryer to put himself up for Best Actor Emmy rather than Supporting?

After six consecutive years of vying in the Supporting Actor in a Comedy race, Two and a Half Men‘s Jon Cryer reportedly will submit himself in the lead category at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards.

As noted by the Gold Derby awards-centric website, which first reported on the change-up, both Cryer (whose camp would not confirm the move) and then-costar Charlie Sheen submitted for Lead Actor during the first two years of Men‘s run, but with zero success. After Cryer downshifted to the supporting race starting in 2006, he netted a supporting nod every single year, while Sheen went on to amass four lead nods. Winning!

With Sheen “moved on” now, and the supporting comedy actor race as competitive as ever (thanks to the Modern Family men) — and, as Gold Derby points out, both Steve Carell (gone from The Office) and Matt LeBlanc (Episodes is not eligible this year) out of the mix, Cryer’s move seems prudent.

Is he strong enough to compete against other possible nominees including co-star Ashton Kutcher, in a show that is steadily declining?
