THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD

The Beverly Hillbillies is making a comeback as a CBS reality series. The network is developing Real Beverly Hillbillies, a half-hour show that follows a rural, lower-middle class family as they are transplanted from their humble abode to a tony Beverly Hills mansion, Variety reports.

We want to find a family that's different from what most people know but still relatable, a family that loves each other a lot." Sounds like another Osbournes clone to us. read more

"Seinfeld supposedly sucked when it came out," she tells TV Guide Online. "Nobody liked it and it got bad reviews." As a result, when Lopez debuted last March to mostly negative notices, Marie hardly saw it as a sign that she should start updating her resumé. (Neither, apparently did ABC: The show returns for its second season on Oct. 2.)

"I've been on shows that the critics loved that tanked and shows that sucked that [did well] — so, who's right?," she muses. "I don't read more
