Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Cowabunga! The v are back and ready to kick some shell.

"It's the first Turtles incarnation where they actually use their weapons besides just throwing them into the wall. I mean, they are ninjas." Turtles executive producer Ciro Nieli told the Television Critics Association during the fall previews Friday. That's not to say that the new Nickelodeon adaptation of the popular comic books will be too violent for its young audience. "The Turtles are always acting on the need of a greater good. They're always playing the hero role.. . We have no qualms about what we're making is a kids show. It's not that violent."

Stockard Channing by Amy Graves/WireImage.com

Posted by synergy21...Cheers to Animal Planet for landing Stockard Channing as the new narrator of Meerkat Manor! She brings a certain je ne sais quoi to the show, giving the writers a larger degree of creative license.

Who names the meerkats, and what criteria do they use to come up with the names? The Cambridge University researchers named most of the meerkats as a way to tell them apart, and assigned some names based on personalities, as with heroic Shakespeare. Others got their names a bit more randomly. "They just run out of names sometimes," says Meerkat Manor executive producer Mick Kaczorowski. "So you see some of them [named after] spices, some [named after] theatrical stars, and then they'll just start naming them something starting with 'St.' In Season 3, I know there's a new group that's coming forward that starts with 'St.'" Why has the show become such a viewer favorite? Because of those cute little faces, and story lines that ri read more

24All right, Fox, I've got a couple of bones to pick with you.
