Tube News

Sherri Shepherd is joining The View as the new cohost, after all, according to the Associated Press. Barbara Walters will make the official announcement on Monday. Several months ago, Shepherd was reported to have won one of the empty hosting chairs, but contract negotiations apparently hit a snag. The snag apparently was resolved. Congrats to Shepherd.

The Emmys will open with a musical number, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But, it’s not clear whether host Ryan Seacrest will be singing. I think we all know where Simon stands on this idea.

Former President Bill Clinton and wife Hillary apparently love the FX show Damages. Bill mentioned his affection for the show during an interview on Extra. Damages is a legal drama about a ruthless and ambition litigator. Insert your own jokes here.

A new interview with two of my favorite TV stars is up at The Frat Pack. Kristen Bell and Jason Segel are starring in the upcoming Judd Apatow film Forgetting Sarah Marshall. They have plenty say about the movie and each other. The film doesn’t open until May 2008, but it’s never too early for a shameless plug.

That Girl, Marlo Thomas, is set to guest star on Ugly Betty this season, according to E!Online. Also, Coach himself, Craig T. Nelson, is joining My Name is Earl, as the warden at the Camden County Jail, E! is reporting. Is it just me, or does Coach’s pal “Luther” seem a better fit for the wacky Earl gang?

If you cringe when the Emmy nominees are announced, then you’ll probably enjoy E!’s Tater Top Awards. The awards are chosen by TV fans, i.e. you, and seem to better reflect the TV stars/shows we love. For example, Kristen Bell, of Veronica Mars, was voted the Drama Queen and Lost’s Kate and Sawyer’s earned a prize for Best Show of Skin and Best Kiss. And no, I didn't rig the ballot box.
