Some bite-sized TV news for your Tuesday:
Fox isn't ordering any more of "Lie to Me" this season -- but that doesn't necessarily mean the show is canceled. It will complete its 13-episode order by the end of January, after which "The Chicago Code" takes its timeslot; the network will make a decision on "Lie to Me's" future closer to upfronts time in the spring. [Deadline]
The CW has a "Glee"-esque musical series in development, but it's focused more on rock 'n' roll. It's tentatively titled "The Prickly Spheres" and is about a musician who turns down a Julliard scholarship and joins an indie-rock band in Minneapolis. Music manager and producer Jeff Kwatinetz ("Royal Pains") is among the executive producers. [Vulture]
"The Middle" just expanded a little bit. ABC has tacked on two episodes to the season order for the comedy, bringing its total to 24. [TV Guide]
The final season of "Law »
That was quick: Eliza Dushku has pulled out of TNT's drama pilot Bird Dog. I hear she exited the project over the weekend, several days after she closed a deal to star in the drama, a mystery fashioned around an unlikely partnership of a father-daughter cop duo. Meanwhile, NYPD Blue and 24 alum Ricky Schroder has signed on to star opposite Molly Parker in the Lifetime pilot Meet Jane. The project, from Warner Horizon, centers on Jane Bilinski (Parker) whose stale life as an unhappily married mother of two daughters in the Washington, DC area is suddenly re-energized and empowered when the FBI enlists her to spy on her husband (Schroder), a computer technician the government suspects is selling top-secret information to Russia. Schroder, managed by the Hofflund Co., most recently took some time out to focus on writing and directing. On screen, he recently appeared in Get Him To The Greek »

Scandinavian TV show "Gylne Tider" is promoting its fourth season and was able to gather a large number of American celebrities from the 80s and 90s to lip sync to The Beatles' "Let It Be" song. The list of stars includes Jason Alexander, Steve Guttenberg, Lou Ferrigno, Ricki Lake, Tonya Harding, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Roger Moore, George Wendt, Glenn Close, David Faustino, Alfonso Ribeiro, Pamela Anderson, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Judd Nelson, Peter Falk, Kelly McGillis, Rick Schroder, Robert Englund, Kathleen Turner, Daryl Hannah, and even Leslie Nielsen. The video actually uses the "Ferry Aid" version of the song which was made in 1987 to benefit the victims of the capsized Ms Herald of Free Enterprise ferry that ended up killing 193 people. Video: »
If you haven't watched the viral promo for the Norwegian show "Gylne Tider" ("Golden Times"), yet, invest six minutes into a trip into randomness.
The video was released to promote the Oct. 31 premiere of the fourth season of the show in which celebrities are interviewed about their past work. The video features a slew of celebrities singing (or sometimes dubbed) The Beatles' "Let It Be" while dancing in front of a beach backdrop that has been digitally added.
Since the network airs many U.S. shows in syndication such as "Seinfeld" and the like, many of the stars featured are from these past shows. Jason Alexander, Malcolm Jamal Warner and Rick Schroder show up, as does "Married ... With Children's" David Faustino who claims he was tricked into participating.
"It was just one of those things that happened on the red carpet at some event, where a camera crew nabbed random, »
This “Let It Be” celebrity promo vid for Norwegian television is an absolutely mind-blowing smorgasbord of celebrity randomness, featuring the lip synching talents of Huey Lewis and Jason Alexander (together at last!), David Faustino and Alfonso Ribeiro back-to-back, 83-year-old Peter Falk, Philip Michael Thomas, Ricky Schroeder, Right Said Fred, and basically anyone else from pop culture history whose presence in a lip-synched Norwegian “Let It Be” video would cause you maximum awesomefusion (awesome confusion). And of course, Rip forever Leslie Nielsen, star of Mannen med den nakne pistol… (thanks for the tip, @erocknophobia) »

First things first: It is Election Day in the United States, so make sure you vote, because my rights depend on it. And I’m selfish like that.
The Dallas Morning News has nominated out Ft. Worth Councilman Joel Burns to be their Texan of the Year. Councilman Burns has made national news since his inspiring It Gets Better speech during the council meeting.
18-year old Disney star Demi Lavato has dropped out of her international tour to check into a treatment center for “emotional and physical issues” according to a statement from her management.
I have to admit, Are They Doing It? is the most addictive time waster I’ve come across in a long, long time. Also, I’m a sick, sick person.

A pair of actors very familiar with Jack Bauer will soon get to know Jim Powell.
Look for Schroder, who played CTU agent Mike Doyle on season six of the former Fox drama, to play a man whose life is saved by Michael Chiklis' powerful character on this ABC series. Wersching will portray his wife.
The latter has been keeping busy since 24 went off the air in May. She recently guest-starred on CSI and will soon be seen on an installment of NCIS. »

Here are some quick and delicious on-the-go treats. Don't say we never gave you anything:
Yes, people are still talking about who will replace Steve Carell on "The Office." Who is talking his week? Rainn Wilson, who says, "I know they've been interviewing a lot of people for the position of the boss." Who? He jokes, "They reached out to Dame Judi Dench last week." [Access Hollywood]
"NYPD Blue's" Rick Schroder has been tapped to guest star on ABC's "No Ordinary Family." He will appear in a January episode as a man whose life is saved by the head of the superhero family, Jim Powell (Michael Chiklis). Sources say Schroder may stick around for more than just one episode. [TV Guide]
Watch out, Rufus and Jenny Humphrey. A new father/daughter duo is set to terrorize the Upper East Side in early 2011. "Spin City's" Michael Boatman will join "Gossip Girl" as businessman Roger Thorpe, »
We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.
We here at The Scorecard Review love every color in the rainbow, especially when those colors are in a movie title. With Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren starring in Red (yes, the title is All Caps), which comes out October 15, it’s the perfect time to release Tsr’s Top 7 Movies with a Color in the Title. This is the first “color” film for Willis. Sure, he came close with Color of Night. But color isn’t a color people, so it doesn’t count. Unfortunately, neither does The Color of Money. I was never seduced by Juliette Binoche and the Three Colors trilogy (Blue, White, Red). I think we can all agree Eddie Murphy had an amazing decade in the 80s, but that doesn’t mean Golden Child earned a place on this list. Even Tom Hanks »

For Rick Schroder and wife Andrea, parenthood has only served to strengthen their marriage of 18 years.
“I would say it’s the four children that help keep our relationship strong,” the former NYPD Blue star, 40, tells the Detroit Free Press.
“We talk about the kids all the time, and notice traits they have of each of us. It helps us appreciate each other more.”
The couple was no doubt tested in 2007, however, when their oldest son Holden, 18, suffered a head injury during a motorbike crash.
Schroder says his oldest son is “still recovering,” noting “traumatic head injuries »

Having swiped the spotlight from top-billed castmates on more than one occasion, Jonah Hill and Russell Brand are rewarded with lead status in "Get Him to the Greek," only to see the show stolen by others, notably the artist formerly known as P. Diddy.A reunion with "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" director Nicholas Stoller that pays far fewer comic dividends, the stop-start R-rated excursion never achieves the propulsive traction and outrageous/endearing balance that made "The Hangover" such a smash this time last year.Lacking a sturdier venue, the fat boy and the bad boy are at best opening acts in a moviegoing season powered by headliners.As such, the Universal release, which opens Friday (June 4), will not likely prove to be a sizable draw, though the scarcity of bawdy, male-skewing comedies in the marketplace could work in its favor.Reprising his foppish British rocker »
The seasons have ended for the cops on ABC, NBC, and Fox, leaving only the CBS procedurals as the last men standing. This week, we saw the season finales of NCIS and its West Coast kid brother, CSI: Miami and its brooding Manhattan cousin, and Criminal Minds. How times change. Long ago, in the early ’90s, NBC was the Cop King, with the original Law & Order, Homicide: Life on the Street, and Jag. In hindsight, NBC’s choice to cancel Jag after just one season, which led to its pick-up at CBS, has turned out to be the broadcast-tv version »

Still boyishy handsome, Ricky Schroder will celebrate his 40th birthday on Tuesday with a pizza party - no small feat, given that he and his wife and four children now live in Spain. "I feel good," the former Silver Spoons star tells People, also noting good-naturedly that he does suffer occasional lower back pain and possibly needs reading glasses. But most of all, reaching the milestone has afforded him perspective - which explains, at his wife Andrea's urging, why the family packed their bags and moved to Spain last June. "Our oldest son is going to college in the fall, »

After winning last year’s event, actor Keanu Reeves will once again get behind the wheel for the annual Toyota Pro/Celebrity charity race at the 36th Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach next month.
The celebrity race has been held every year since 1977, and has attracted stars such as Gene Hackman, Jason Bateman, Rick Schroder, Stephen Baldwin, Donny Osmond, Sean Patrick Flanery, Nancy Lieberman, Daniel Goddard and Josh Brolin. 2008’s race was won by Espn/ABC pit reporter for Nascar Nationwide Jamie Little.
Every year, Toyota donates $5,000 to Racing for Kids, a non-profit program benefiting children’s hospitals in Southern California, in the name of each celebrity racer, and another $5,000 to the winner’s charity of choice. The car company has donated close to $1.6 million to various children’s organizations since 1991.

No other show revolves so completely around a single character as 24 does with Jack Bauer. With a constantly revolving cast of supporting characters to fill, the producers throw their net far and wide to get an intriguing variety of actors. All branches of show business have been represented: movies (Dennis Hopper, Jon Voight); television (Rick Schroder, Zeljko Ivanek); stage (Cherry Jones, Jayne Atkinson). We've seen cult favorites (Michelle Forbes, Callum Keith Rennie), soap opera crossovers (Reiko Aylesworth, Rena Sofer), before-they-were-bigs (Leighton Meester, Daniel Dae Kim) and foreign favorites (Rade Serbedzija, Jurgen Prochnow). Here in no particular order are five guest stars I've found especially memorable for either good or bad reasons: »
Veteran television actor Ricky Schroder stars in the indie feature Blood Done Sign My Name, which open in theaters February 19th. Based on the Timothy Tyson novel, the film is a true-life civil rights drama set in 1970s. Set in a small town, Schroder portrays a pastor of an all-white Methodist church who tries to get his congregation to live harmoniously with the black community. Zorianna Kit: You came aboard this project at the last minute. Rick Schroder: When the script came in, I had to read it right away because they needed an answer that day. I'd need to be on set in North Carolina in three days. It was an immediate yes for me. You can tell good writing when you read it. It had good dialogue and good characters. Zorianna Kit: The film »

Since I know I’ll be one of the few people who have actually seen this film, which is getting a small, very limited theatrical release before it’ll eventually come out on DVD, I thought I would at least say a few things about it. So I know that we all have had the experience when someone asks you your opinion about about a recent film and you say: “Yeah…well it was O.K. you know….I mean it’s wasn’t bad but it was….you know….you know….you know…..ah…. It’s all right I guess“ Well that’s how I felt about Blood Done Sign My Name. No bad, not awful, but a perfectly mediocre, tepid movie. It doesn’t stand out in any way, but sort of plods along with no real dramatic tension or drive whatsoever. The kind of film you forget about while watching it. »
