Tube News: Jason Priestley returns to TV, Nip/Tuck news, Ian Ziering scoop, and Scott Baio’s new show

Jason Priestley returns to TV
Beverly Hills 90210 fans, Brandon Walsh has a new gig. Well, not Brandon exactly, but his portrayer Jason Priestley. He’ll star in tonight’s new Lifetime show Side Order of Life, premiering at 8 p.m. ET. The show is billed as a dramedy. I’ve seen a clip, and it’s funny. Check it out. Following Priestley’s new show at 9 p.m. ET, is the debut of another new series, State of Mind, with Lili Taylor. For more info on both shows, check out Lifetime.

Nip/Tuck news
The Television Critics Association summer press tour is underway, and scoop on the new season of Nip/Tuck is the talk of the weekend. First up, the core cast will be back, including Kimber, Liz, Julia and Matt, despite that our favorite plastic surgeons are moving to L.A., TV Guide reported. Guest stars lined up for the new season include Lauren Hutton, Jennifer Coolidge, Portia de Rossi, Olive Platt, and Bradley Cooper. Yes, that Bradley Cooper. Thank you, Nip/Tuck producers! Also, Rosie O’Donnell will return as Dawn Budge. For more on the upcoming season, check out the story at TV Guide.

Ian Ziering as The Price is Right host?
Earlier this week, the New York Daily News reported that 90210/Dancing With the Stars alum Ian Ziering is in the running for the hosting job at The Price Is Right. He had a callback and really wants the job, the News reported.

Scott Baio is 45 and Single
You know I hate touting reality television shows, but I’m making an exception when it stars one of my, and probably your, TV crushes from the ‘80s. For all of you who crushed on Chachi from Happy Days/ Joanie Loves Chachi and Charles in Charge, Baio is back on television tonight in this reality show about his love life. Rumor has it he’ll confront his former costar Erin Moran about their sordid past. I may regret telling you this, but the show kicks off at 10:30 p.m. ET on VH1. I have a feeling this show is going to be like a car accident, cringe worthy but captivating.
