Tube News: Gilmore Girls cancelled, CHiPs heads to the big screen, and more

Goodbye Gilmore Girls
The CW just announced that Gilmore Girls has been cancelled. The series finale airs May 15. Sorry Gilmore Girls fans. But, this may be good news for Veronica Mars. The network has to have something to bring back next year.

CHiPs feature film
The television show CHiPs that chronicled the adventures of two California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers is headed to the big screen. Wilmer Valderrama, of That ‘70s Show, is on board to play Ponch. No word yet on who will fill John’s motorcycle seat.

Stop One Show campaign winner announced
Our friends at Buzz Sugar tallied the votes for the Stop One Show campaign and the winner has been announced: CSI: Miami. The site also has a hilarious video clip featuring the show’s star David Caruso.

Bones, One Tree Hill and Lost all get ratings boosts
Several of my favorite shows saw ratings gains this week. Bones was up to 10.41 million viewers, Lost bumped up to 12.1 million and thankfully, One Tree Hill bested ratings for the Pussycat Dolls finale by 400,000 viewers, earning One Tree Hill a decent 3.27 million viewers.

Actor Tom Poston dead at 85
Actor Tom Poston passed away on April 30 after a brief illness. Poston was best known for his role as George Utley on Newhart. Poston also starred in The Steve Allen Show, Mork and Mindy, and Coach.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck pregnant
The View’s
co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck announced this week that she’s three months pregnant. That could explain a lot. The past few months, Hasselbeck and fellow View co-host Rosie O’Donnell have clashed onscreen politically. Perhaps hormones are to blame. O’Donnell has said more than once that she’s in the throes of menopause. And now Hasslebeck is with child, so maybe hormones have been making the two overly argumentative about their war stances. Or, maybe they’re just passionate debaters when it comes to the war.

Gilmore Girls cancelled? You've got to be kidding me? Unbelievable. Yet, for some odd reason, there's still an audience for Girlfriends...I don't get it.

Nice run for the Gilmores, though. So, TTG...how does the show end?

I can't beieve it's all over in two weeks!

Old Tommy Poston, lest we forget that he's made appearances in almost every major sitcom of the last 3 decades. Seemed as though you were a hit unless Christened by Tommy Poston!

True, classic TV. I remember he was even on that hideous show with Jennifer Finnigan a couple seasons ago, where he lived in the closet.
