From the e-mail:
TNT has renewed its critically acclaimed hit series MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE for a second season. The wry drama stars Emmy® winner Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Emmy winner Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street, TNT’s Salem’s Lot) and Golden Globe® winner Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise). MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE currently airs Mondays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). TNT has ordered 10 episodes for the second season.
“MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE has been embraced by viewers and critics alike, making our decision to renew an easy one,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE blends insightful storylines, highly relatable characters and top-notch performances from Ray Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula. We look forward to continuing our wonderful relationship with everyone involved.”
I liked the show on first viewing but have been bad about keeping up. (Story of my viewing life these days.) Mrs. Fields, meanwhile, is jumping on the Conan-chatter bandwagon:
Mrs. Fields has officially offered a job to Conan O'Brien should he end up leaving the Tonight Show at NBC. The national cookie company states that O'Brien has his pick of working at any of their over 300 stores nationwide, or at their corporate offices in Salt Lake City, UT. Details of the position as well as salary are pending negotiations and interest from O'Brien.
"At the age of 22 Conan applied for a job at Mrs. Fields, but sadly never received a call back," explained John Lauck, President of Mrs. Fields. "We want to officially call you back, and make amends for what we now know was a huge oversight in talent recruitment."
Mrs. Fields Famous Brands, which also owns TCBY, The Country's Best Yogurt, additionally stated that should O'Brien's interest in cookies no longer be as strong, he is eagerly invited to enter This Could Be Yours, the Great TCBY Store giveaway. Should he win this national contest, Conan would find himself the owner of a brand new TCBY store in a location of his choosing.
Conan did say he might be available for children's parties, so this might be a tempting offer. Unless, of course, they decide to change his shift.
I may be posting later about "American Idol," if I can find a way to do so without filling your head (and mine) once again with "Pants on the Ground."
