The WGA won’t issue a waiver for the Golden Globes, causing much gnashing of crooked, stained teeth at the Hollywood Foreign Press offices. The Guild has also denied the Academy from using clips from films and past Oscars during this year’s shows, which should make the AMPTP tremble, because there’s no way a Debbie Allen dance number can replace the clip montage of the dead.
Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien will be back on their respective shows starting January 2, without writers or monologues. Luckily, Jay has enough money to hand out cash to audience members and Conan has been taking mime lessons.
Jimmy Kimmel is coming back, too.
NBC will recycle two USA Network series, Monk and Psych. New episodes of both series will air first on USA in January then repeat on Sunday nights in March on NBC.
