For more than a decade, "MythBusters" Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage have delighted fans by testing out legends and myths on their Discovery series. And time and time again, the gents have heard that their show is one families -- especially celebrity families -- tune in to watch together.
"That is a regular refrain from people all over the world we get -- that we are family viewing in their house and some of our fans, Craig Ferguson and David Letterman, have said that they practically raised their kids on science, watching 'MythBusters,'" Adam explained when he and Jamie ...

I have never been much of a dancer, but that is only due to lack of proper training. If I were to ever take part in Dancing With the Stars, I believe I would do remarkably well. It’s not like dancing is hard – the stars manage to do it just fine – it just requires focus and determination. The same is required of the competition’s hosts. ABC finally announced who would be replacing former host Brooke Burke-Charvet, who was let go less than a month before the March 17 premiere of Season 18.

Andrews’ co-hosting duties were announced on Monday, said THR. She competed in the show’s tenth season, which happened to be the first season Burke-Charvet was a host. Speaking of Burke-Charvet, executive producer Conrad Green had some nice things to say about her: »

Red Arrow Entertainment Group, the production-distribution unit of Germany’s ProSiebenSat.1 Group, has acquired a majority stake in Half Yard Prods., the outfit behind such cable reality series as “Say Yes to the Dress,” “Diggers” and “Hillbilly Handfishin’.”
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed but industry sources pegged the pricetag at more than $40 million. Red Arrow’s deal for Half Yard is the latest example of the European and U.S. media congloms scooping up small and medium-sized unscripted production entities in an effort to bolster content creation and the potential to sell hit formats around the world.
Half Yard founders Abby Greensfelder and Sean Gallagher will continue to run the Bethesda, Md.-based company as co-CEOs. The pair, former programming execs at Discovery Channel and TLC, respectively, founded Half Yard in 2006. At Red Arrow, Half Yard becomes part of a portfolio that includes Chris Coelen’s Kinetic Content, »

Once Upon a Time has cast a Glinda for its Wizard of Oz story arc. TVLine reports that Sunny Mabrey has been picked to play the Good Witch.
Lifetime has announced that Drop Dead Diva will end with the upcoming sixth season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. I just hope another show quickly steps in to fill the upcoming Brooke Elliott shortage on TV.
EW reports that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is set to appear on Shameless as Fiona‘s new boss. Judging from Morgan’s roles on Weeds, Supernatural and Watchmen, I’m already starting a deathwatch for his character.

Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage have fabricated a new TV concept. The Mythbusters guys are partnering for a new Discovery special that takes their talent for building awesomely destructive gadgets and crosses it with kids’ playtime. The result: Dangerous Toys, a one-hour special produced by Hyneman and Savage.
The special takes a kids’ fort-battle game and blows it up with adult-sized concoctions. Hyneman and Savage will interview teens for ideas and build giant versions of child-play favorites — such as a 25-foot couch fort and explosive robotic armies — in an attempt to bring each other down. “It does mean we’re »
