A graphic novelist's livelihood — and life — are threatened when a vengeful ghost takes over his pen, using it to predict violent events that start to come true. "On Thin Ice" is very special episode that takes you into a world Ghost Whisperer has explored on multi platforms (comic books, graphic novels, interactive DVD special features, on-line assets, Comic-Con, etc.), but NEVER explored in a TV episode. On April 2, Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) will experience the spirit world like you've never seen it before — through a haunted graphic novel that comes to life. You won't want to miss this stunning all new original episode guest-starring Margaret Cho!

Almost every week, I make a comment that questions Kathy's D-list status. That's because Kathy frequently does things that border on A-list like co-hosting CNN's New Year's Eve special with Anderson Cooper, selling out Madison Square Garden or dating billionaire Steve Wozniak. But this week, Kathy proved me wrong again, further solidifying her insistence that she's D-list by performing via P.A. system on an airplane. And not just any plane. We're talkin' a 14-hour "Pink Flight" from San Francisco headed to Sydney, Australia, for the Gay Mardi Gras and filled to the rim with drag queens, gay guys and gay-friendly gals. It wouldn't be so D-list if she was just flying to Australia to perform at Gay Mardi Gras a la divas Cyndi Lauper and Olivia Newton-John, or be the "Chief of the Parade" like Margaret Cho. No. This is Kathy Griffin we're referring to. Kathy: "Dane Cook doesn't have to do this." Kathy had to stand at the gate and tear each passenger's ticket after greeting them. After t...

Haven't had enough celebreality yet? VH-1's piling on more, with four new reality shows slated for the months to come. The new adds will include some new stars at the helm, plus some old ones we just can't shake.New series will include The Cho Show, starring the eponymous (and raucous) comedienne, Margaret Cho. Alongside Ms. Cho will be Luke's Parental Advisory, which in a Fatherhood vein, centers on former 2 Live Crew'er Luther Campbell as he navigates parenting and his job, which just so happens to be making adult flicks. Brooke Hogan gets her own show, Brooke Hogan Knows Best (sound familiar?), and, as previously reported, New York gets yet another series, this time changing locale and format for New York Goes to Hollywood (to pursue, yes, an acting career).In addition to the new reality fare to feast on, Snoop Dogg gets his own Storytellers ep, and Rock Docs will see two new editions of the series. Are you ready to "shake a lil' something" for the new slate? Or do you wish it w...
Peter Krause and Julianna Margulies, The Lost Room
America loves it when an average Joe suddenly exhibits superpowers — witness the success of the Spider-Man movies and NBC's white-hot Heroes. Now Sci Fi Channel is taking that premise one crazy step further. In The Lost Room, a sprawling $20 million, six-hour miniseries (premiering tonight at 9 pm/ET), it's not the people who have amazing abilities, it's the simple, ordinary objects. There's a comb that stops time, a nail file that induces sleep, a pen that can microwave a body and — the big-ticket item — a key to a 1960s motel room that will open a portal to any destination in the world. Crime lords covet these objects, as do millionaires and religious crackpots, because to possess one is to possess its power.
But all Peter Krause wants to possess right now is some bug repellent. The actor, in his first
Grey's Anatomy is poised to enter weekend broadcast syndication in fall 2009. Remember those simpler times when Mer was man-obsessed and confused...? Al Jazeera has all but abandoned its bid to secure U.S. distribution for an English-language version of its newscast, says Variety.... The 42nd-annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast May 15, 2007, live on CBS.... In closing, I leave you with this thought: Comedienne Margaret Cho has accepted a seat on the board of directors of Good Vibrations, the San Francisco-based purveyor of "sex toys and sex-positive products."
