The Entertation Index: November 21

November 21, 2011

Bieber, Justin — A paternity suit against tween superstar Justin Bieber has been dropped by Mariah Yeater, who recently accused the singer of fathering her young child in a backstage tryst at the Staples Center. If you’re detecting massive levels of carbon dioxide in the air right now, it’s because about 27 million teenage girls just exhaled.

Development, Arrested — We’ve gone on and on about it on this site, and it’s no secret that all of us here at TBTS adored Arrested Development and rue our premature loss of it every day. Now we have concrete good news to share about the show. In case you missed it late Friday night, Netflix announced that it will be the exclusive host of a new spate of episodes to premiere for the corporation in early 2013. No jokes here folks — this is great news. Huzzah for Netflix! That’s a great step in getting everyone to love you again.

Fallon, Late Night with Jimmy — Here’s one of the most surreal (and perhaps one of the most giddily enjoyable) things you’ll see all day, from a recent episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon: Martin Short, Michael Stipe, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy all play Password together. Nothing heavy here, but it is quite a bit of fun.

Munsters, The — NBC has admitted that the network has ordered the pilot for a re-imagining of the 1960’s comedy The Munsters in the unexpected format of an hour-long drama. Because really, is there anything more inherently dramatic than a Frankenstein’s monster, a vampire, a demoness and a wolf-boy living in the suburbs with their pet dragon? Watch your back, Grey’s Anatomy.

Shue, Elizabeth — The Adventures in Babysitting star is poised to take over for actress Marg Helgenberger on CBS’ CSI: Las Vegas after the latter leaves the show later this season. Her first case? Processing the death of a man who just drank himself to death in the bed with her while she slept. Good reference? No? Hm. How about “Her first case? Investigating a crooked karate instructor suspected of asking his students to intentionally hurt others.” Better? Okay then.

Weiland, Scott — Get ready to thank me, because I just made your holiday shopping list super-easy: just buy each of your loved ones a copy of Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland’s new album Most Wonderful Time of the Year, which sees the singer recording yuletide tunes like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “White Christmas” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”  A Christmas-season album seems like a perfect fit for Weiland, who allegedly can’t get enough of the white stuff. Snow! I meant snow!
