TV Round Up: MTV 'Runs It'


· MTV will air an exclusive interview with Chris Brown on Friday. From the preview, Brown is clearly not wearing powder blue or a bow-tie, and for that alone you can tell he's not sorry.

· Colin Hanks is set to co-star with Bradley Whitford on the Fox series Jack & Dan, an action-comedy (a la Burn Notice) about a detective and his drunken cop partner. This sounds juicier than Hanks's woefully under-explored Mad Men arc.

· Michelle Obama will host Mario Batali, Bobby Flay, and Emeril Lagasse at the White House for an episode of Iron Chef America. All of Obama's food commentaries are rumored to start with, "Well, anything tastes better than being on The Jay Leno Show, I can tell you that."

· Taylor Swift has already used up one of her three allotted Kanye West jokes on a lame SNL promo.

· Get this: Some parents want to prevent the Gossip Girl threesome from airing.

· Dammit. Michael Rady seemed so nice. Turns out his Melrose Place character is interested in only (drum roll, please) deceit.

    Anyone know if "Jack and Dan" is Bradley Whitford's pilot from last year "Off Duty" with a slightly better name? Or has Bradley Whitford entered a phase in his career where he can only make pilots with him starring as a drunken detective? BTW "Off Duty" was the best pilot made last year, and NBC, being NBC didn't pick it up, so hopefully it is.

    I like it

    I'm sorry, but Taylor Swift kind of looks like an alien to me.
    In other news, I hope this Bradley Whitford/Colin Hanks thing is good, because I love Whitford and was incredibly disappointed in Studio 60. And his divorce.

    I think you just pointed out to me what has totally been missing from Mad Men this season. I loved his character.
