We'll be VERY curious to see if these two will be able to replace the magic between the two leads that made this show so great to begin with!

As we've reported, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as we know it will be gone forever after its upcoming thirteenth season, as Christopher Meloni has left the police procedural, and Mariska Hargitay has taken a reduced role for one final year, which has left the door open for two new leads to come in.

And after a grueling search, it appears the final ruling is in:

Tina Fey And NBC Entertainment Chief Respond To Tracy Morgan's Anti-Gay Rant

tina-fey-and-nbc-entertainment-chief-respond-to-tracy-morgans-anti-gay-rant

Preach it, sister!

In light of Tracy Morgan's HOrrific, hateful tirade against the LGBT community during a stand-up comedy show in Nashville earlier this month, both his boss and co-star on 30 Rock, Tina Fey, and NBC entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt have issued statements apologizing on his behalf!

Greenblatt says:

"We will always recognize an artist’s freedom to express him or herself, but not when reckless things are said no matter what the context. Unfortunately, Tracy’s comments reflect negatively on both 30 Rock and NBC – two very all-inclusive and diverse organizations – and we have made it clear to him that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. I speak for NBC and myself personally when I say we do not condone hate or violence of any kind and I am pleased to see Tracy Morgan apologizing for recent homophobic remarks in his standup appearance."

And Fey follows up:

"Stand-up comics may have the right to 'work out' their material in its ugliest and rawest form in front of an audience, but the violent imagery of Tracy's rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community. It also doesn't line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person. I hope for his sake that Tracy's apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian coworkers at 30 Rock, without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with, or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket. The other producers and I pride ourselves on 30 Rock being a diverse, safe, and fair workplace."

God, she hits the nail right on the head, just as we'd expect her to!

We're just as baffled by this behavior as they both seem to be, as Morgan never seemed to come off like this hateful a human being, so who knows exactly what's going on?

But we're thrilled to know that not even those closest to him are tolerating that kind of despicable, ignorant and violent thought process, and sincerely hope that this has been a huge wake-up call for him!

We expected better from you, Tracy. Such a shame.

Wonder Woman's Shorts WILL Return!

Overly concerned Wonder Woman fans will be happy to know that the superhero's iconic shorts will be gracing Adrianne Palicki's behind throughout NBC's new series.

The network's president Robert Greenblatt set the record straight during an interview with TV Line:

"There was an initial outcry about the long pants—you know, skintight pants as opposed to those little shorts [worn by Lynda Carter in the original TV series], but the shorts were always planned. They are actually used in the final confrontation when she beats Veronica Cale [Elizabeth Hurley]."

Glad we got that little detail settled.

NBC Picks Up Wonder Woman Pilot!

Filed under: TV News

wonderwomanwenn__opt__opt1.jpg

Woo-hoo!

Wonder Woman officially has a home!

Despite passing on the David E. Kelley pilot last week, NBC made the decision to pick up the show now that Comcast is taking over the network.

The network passed on the script due to costly licensing fees as well as having bad luck with superhero projects in the past (ahem, Bionic Woman).

However, now that Robert Greenblatt has taken over, the show just may have a chance after all.

The adaptation is said to be a non-campy and serious take on the classic comic.

We hope NBC does it justice.
