Today's News: Our Take


BACK ON THE SCENE

Although there's no official confirmation from CBS, sources confirm that fired CSI actress Jorja Fox has been given her job back — but at her old $100,000-per-episode salary. (Poor thing.) "There will be no renegotiation," says a source close to the show. Ditto Fox's co-star George Eads, who apparently did just enough groveling at the TCA press tour on Wednesday. "Let me tell you, I've apologized nine ways to Sunday," he told reporters. "It's a big misunderstanding, straight up. I want all this to work out. CSI is a part of who I am." read more

YOU'RE HIGH-PRICED!

Among the extras not included in the five-disc set: never-before-seen footage of Omarosa's "18-hour" emergency-room ordeal. Bummer. read more

TROJAN MAN

Will Ferrell has agreed to host the 75th anniversary gala for the University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television on Sept. 26. Ferrell is one of the school's famous alums. In related news, USC is still No. 1! Fight on! read more

CHILL IS HOT

EXCLUSIVE

Matt LeBlanc has made a new friend. Sources tell TV Guide Online that newcomer Andrea Anders has landed the pivotal role of Joey's next-door neighbor (and possible love interest) on Joey. Anders replaces Ashley Scott, who was let go last month for creative reasons. Anders, who had a small role in this summer's Stepford Wives remake, beat out several actresses for the coveted gig — including one rather high-profile thesp. read more

FAIR TRADE?

Fox's controversial reality romp Trading Spouses averaged a decent 7.5 million viewers in its Tuesday premiere. The show won its time slot among young adults and ranked as the network's highest-rated rip-off series to date. read more

THE ODD COUPLE

Tom and Jerry are making a comeback! No, not the cat and mouse — the crackpot and the meddler. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Green and Jerry Springer are pitching cable outlets a "week in review"-type program that would feature the duo weighing in on the week's biggest political and pop-culture moments. I can't be sure, but I think they're blatantly ripping off VH1's Best Week Ever. read more

Next Action Star Man, it's not...

Next Action Star
Man, it's not even right how this show owns me. It's sick. And yes, in the past, I have fed it to some of the budding Seagals and guys, but this week, they all shut me up big time. And not just during the screen tests. Though they did make dangling from a car look a lot more fun than say, sharing a house with wacko Viviana. And probably less dangerous. No matter. It's all about Jared and Melisande doing the first-date thing while the others hang at the mansion dishing them like a pack of high schoolers with better skin and bigger shoulders. Love it! What I'm hating is that next week is the finale and we lost Mae tonight. She was fab. Mark, not so much, but I may be biased... after all, John and Sean are just too much. They've got that rugged L.L. Bean hubba-hubba-ness. And Corinne? Forget about it. That new blow-out 'do is doing crazy things to me, girl. Even if you don't get a c read more
