TV Roundup: Slay-mates Reunite!
• Lost producer Damon Lindelof was told by ABC executives a four-toed statue in an earlier episode would not be featured again. "It's creepy," said one exec with eleven fingers.
• American Idol creator Simon Fuller will be producing Austin Golden Hour, a medical drama that follows ER doctors through the critical first hour of an emergency. When reached for comment, ER, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, House, and Crossing Jordan all replied, "Ughhhhhh."
• Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, the duo behind HBO's Mr. Show, have announced that they're developing a pilot called David's Situation for the network. The comedy is centered around a suburban man living with two politically opposite roommates. Sounds like a Three's Company remake to us.
