•The producers of Desperate Housewives
have issued an apology
for offending Filipino health care workers in last Sunday's season premiere episode, where Susan (Teri Hatcher
) goes to a doctor and says she wants to "check those diplomas because I want to make sure they're not from some med school in the Philippines." When asked for comment, Seinfeld
's Michael Richards
said he thought the joke was funny.
• Speaking of Jerry Seinfeld
, he will guest star
on tonight's second season premiere of 30 Rock
. What's the deal with guest stars anyway? Are they guests? Are they stars?
• Dirty Sexy Money
's Billy Baldwin organized an auction
for the Carol Baldwin (his mom) Cancer Fund that includes a bunch of cool TV-related items, like walk-on roles in 30 Rock
and his new series, lunch with the Sopranos
cast, or being a roadie for Miley Cyrus
...the last one sounds suspiciously like work!
's Hollywood-skewering news program, The Showbiz Show
, has not been renewed
. Probably to make room for a cartoon about a pooping monkey.
