Upset that the CW has pulled tonight's episodes of Supernatural and Smallville at the last minute? Blame Chicago politics.
The CW decided to repeat Thursday night's episodes of The Vampire Diaries and Nikita after learning that at least two major markets — Chicago and Baltimore — were pre-empting the shows. In Chicago, CW station WGN is airing a Chicago mayoral debate, which will likely draw increased interest due to the drama over candidate Rahm Emanuel (whose eligibility has been called in to question). In Baltimore, a college basketball game is pre-empting the shows.
Charlie Sheen has been released from the hospital and is now resting at home, his rep tells TVGuide.com.
"Charlie Sheen left the hospital last night [Thursday] and is at home," Stan Rosenfield said. "He will be on the set of Two and a Half Men on Tuesday."
Rep: Charlie Sheen taken to hospital
Sheen, 45, was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles Thursday morning with what his rep described as "severe abdominal pains."
The actor told a source quoted by Extra: "I'm not dying." His friend, Steve Brodersen, told the TV newsmagazine Sheen's abdominal pain was the result of ...
Now that they've flipped through The Vampire Diaries and conjured all things Supernatural, the CW is looking to dig up another genre fave: zombies.
The CW is developing a script for the hour-long drama Awakening, about two sisters who face off against one another just as a zombie uprising begins. (This being the CW, we can probably assume Awakening will boast the best-looking zombies in the history of the genre.)
With original Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Jason Priestley and Luke Perry both turning down invitations to reprise their iconic characters on The CW's reboot, their collaboration on Hallmark Movie Channel's Goodnight for Justice may be the closest we'll ever get to a Brandon-Dylan reunion. Priestley's participation this time is strictly behind the scenes, directing his former costar in a role Perry created for himself: righteous Old West judge John Goodnight. Perry, now 45, and Priestley, 41, reminisce with TV Guide Magazine.

"I got my SAG card doing the first ever commercial for Dasani bottled water. I thought I only got the part because of my red hair but then the commercial was shot in black and white and I realized I got the part could I could sell the s--- out of overpriced bottled water." — Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family, nominee for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
Sure, getting a brand-new house to replace an aging double-wide trailer was "a dream." But for Jeanne Brown, seeing her 12-year-old daughter Katrina "smile like she used to," when she met Justin Bieber, was the best part of her Extreme Makeover: Home Edition experience.
CMT rolls out its first scripted series: this good-natured sitcom starring Reba alum Melissa Peterman as a single mom who moves her three kids (and her slacker younger brother) into a wealthy suburb to give the kids a better life, and takes a job in a supermarket. That won't make her wealthy herself, of course, and there are plenty of poverty jokes (this is a comedy) in the back-to-back opening episodes. Peterman enhances them with her physical-comedy talents. Ed Asner plays her curmudgeonly neighbor and coworker. — Paul Droesch
