Lost may be over and Simon Cowell may be gone for good from American Idol, but Fox’s reality assembly line just keeps on rolling! What does that mean for you? It means that through your cloud of bereavement, like a long-limb angel of rhythmic glory, Cat Deeley is returning tonight with the seventh season of So You Think You Can Dance.
Here’s your media blitz interview round-up:
"One thing I have picked up along the way is friends who are really good dancers. So what happens is, I can go for a night out and they all dance around me and make me look good." — AV Club
"I think we’re very lucky that everyone is so passionate about the show. So, we’re going to keep doing what we’re doing. If we’re recognized by the Emmys, fabulous. If not, I’ve got more miniskirts and high heels to pull out." — Movieline
"I recently told my Mum, If I could go back and tell my 8-year-old self that I’d be sitting in a room designing things and looking at sparkly stones and having boxes with my name on it and ribbon, I think I would have imploded from excitement." — LA Times
"[Mia Michaels] is very honest and even if she criticizes, it’s constructive criticism. I love the fact that she’s a little bit bonkers." — TV Guide
And speaking of the keeper of Tim Burton‘s dreams, Mia Michaels is back as a permanent judge on this season’s SYTYCD, which will finally be going live, just like American Idol.
- Have you made up your mind about Sex and the City 2? The reviews are trickling out and they’re not pretty. Sarah Haskins succinctly Tweet-capped Roger Ebert‘s review: "Sex," 1. "City," 1. "Two," 0. Kim Voynar asks, "How much did I hate SATC2? Oh, let me count the ways, girlfriend." Yikes!
- After she told Larry King that "gay marriage is coming," LGBT activists have made a big effort to get Laura Bush to marshal the Dallas Pride parade this summer. You can now join the Draft Laura Bush for Dallas Pride 2010 Facebook group.
- True Blood is coming to a theater near you!
As a bloody cool precursor to the show’s season 3 premiere, HBO is hosting simultaneous fan events at 50 movie theaters across the country on Tuesday, June 1. The gatherings will include a screening of the season 2 finale followed by a live satellite interview with series creator Alan Ball and the entire cast.
- Looking forward to catching up with the new Bianca when All My Children airs its SoapNet repeats every evening? Well, Mickey Mouse is here to crush your dreams! In 2012, Disney will replace SoapNet with Disney Junior, a network aimed at preschoolers. [via NYT]
- Gay For Lois Lane is my absolute favorite discovery this week.
It is hard to find anyone who doesn’t enjoy Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane. The comics are fun, consistently good looking and kind of crazy. But, on the other hand they are also a recorded history of a woman and her emotionally distant, self-centered, jack-ass of a love interest.
So, the way I see it, everyone loves Lois Lane, that is except for Superman. What Lois really needs is someone else to fixate on. Someone who loves her as much as I do and who will accept her and that lever in her head that switches from aggressive reporter to crazy stalker every now and again … if Superman won’t man up and give her the love she deserves, I’ll have to do it myself.
The blogger is re-captioning classic Superman comics from the Golden Age as if one of Lois’ female friends is falling in love/stalking her, and it. is. amazing. [via Queerty]
