Katie, Meredith, Jill all Quit; Some Renewals & Cancellations

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

Katie Couric is going to stop hosting the CBS Evening News to host a daytime talk show.

Similarly, Meredith Vieira will be leaving Today to care for her ill husband.

My So-Called Life will be appearing on The Sundance Channel. It will start April 25th at 11pm.

Bob's Burgers got renewed, which surprises me. This means that FOX has five shows for "Animation Domination" next season... this should lead to a rotating schedule... not a great thing for anyone!

MTV has announced that they're going to have two spin-offs from Jersey Shore. One will focus on Snooki and JWoww. The other will focus on DJ Pauly D.

As is a hot topic right now, House has not yet been renewed. If an agreement isn't reached by the 15th, it may end up on NBC instead of FOX. And, Robert Sean Leonard, who plays James Wilson on the show, may not sign a new contract if it is renewed. He's preparing to open a new show on Broadway (he was a Great White Way Vet long before House) which would interfere with the start of next season, at least.

Burn Notice will be back on Thursday, June 23rd, at 9pm. 

The Discovery Channel started a twitter contest yesterday, requiring contestants to post specific types of photos.

CMT's Working Class has been canceled. It's not looking too good for Better With You, although there is still a chance for it to be renewed.

Hulk Hogan has a six-episode show coming to TruTv... about Micro Champion Wrestling... for little people.

Jill Wagner has decided to leave Wipeout after this summer... the show is already looking for a replacement.
