Some items of interest for Toobworld in the last week, mostly from the TCA madness in California......
Snoop Dogg will be on the new episode of 'Monk' tonight. Last Sunday he met E and Vince in that night's episode of 'Entourage'. In the past he's appeared as himself on 'Las Vegas', 'Player$', 'Weeds', 'Martin', 'The Tracy Morgan Show', 'The Steve Harvey Show', and 'Just Shoot Me'.
Add to all of that his work in blipverts for Chrysler, T-Mobile, Orbit gum, AOL 9.0, and a Dutch cell phone company and you have somebody more than ready to kick it in the Hall.
It was announced during the CBS sessions at the TCA death march that there will be a crossover next season between 'CSI' and 'Without A Trace'.
As 'Without A Trace' operates in the general tri-state area around New York City, I'd rather see that show cross over with 'CSI: NY'.
But what do I know?
“CSI” and “CSI: NY” will have crossover episodes on the same night in which William Petersen and Gary Sinise visit each other’s hometowns.
This will make Gary Sinise's character Mac Taylor eligible for the TV Crossover Hall of Fame.
Amy Sedaris says that Jerri Blank and the other characters from Flatpoint High on 'Strangers With Candy' would take up temporary residence in Springfield is she got her way for the 500th episode of 'The Simpsons'.
"I think we might be talking about plotlines involving baby farms, crystal meth labs, a prostitution ring or two, a food poisoning epidemic caused by the sale of off-brand Girl Scout cookies made illegally in Manchuria... Fun stuff like that."
She claims that Groening woud be "moist as a snack cake" after he reads her draft proposal.
On August 6th, Alan Thicke will return to 'The Bold & The Beautiful' as talk-show host Rich Ginger. Any chance he changed his name from Dennis Dupree, the character played by Thicke on 'Hope & Gloria'?
Jerry Seinfeld will appear in the season opener of '30 Rock' as himself, making him another celebrity ready for membership in the TV Crossover Hall of Fame.
Any mentions of his hit TV show will not be a Zonk. He made a sitcom in Toobworld called 'Jerry' and it could be he made another one called 'Seinfeld' after being released from prison. Enough time has passed for the normal shelf life of any hit sitcom.....
*A title in remembrance of Connecticut radio/tv legend Bob Steele....
