Boy, does he need this! The $$$ made in syndication could save him from the huge tax hole he has dug for himself!

Gordon Ramsay's wildly popular series, Hell's Kitchen, has just been bought for domestic syndication by Debmar-Mercury.

That means, like Golden Girls and Friends, you'll be able to watch it somewhere on your cable-box every single day of the week.

Isn't that irritating delightful!

Maury Has Taken Over Ellen's Turf!

Filed under: TV NewsEllen DeGeneres

In these hot summer days, housewives and college students are pumping up the A.C. and getting fixated on their TVs.

And what better to watch during the daytime than the trashy exploits of knocked up, unwed trailer park dwellers and transvestites on the prowl!

The ratings show that Maury Povich is kicking daytime TV ass this summer, beating out the likes of Ellen DeGeneres in syndication with his talk show Maury!

Hooray for corning the market on DNA testing! Boo for Ellen losing her audience just because her shows aren't as funny the second time around!

Oh, but don't be fooled! Though Maury has broken the top 20 syndicated shows this summer, there is one fierce bitch that rules supreme.

Bow down to Judge Judy, soap operas and game shows! She owns you all!

Nip/Tuck Gets Second Life On Logo

Filed under: TV NewsGlee

Gay-oriented cable network Logo has acquired syndication rights for FX's medical drama Nip/Tuck.

The series, which ran for seven seasons, will air in three-episode stacks each week starting this October.

Logo's senior vice president of multiplatform programming Marc Leonard explains the network's choice to air the drama:

"The celebrity guests, moments of jaw-dropping outrageousness and honest depiction of its gay characters and their friends made the series a perfect fit for our audience. At the end of the day, we see it as a love story between two straight guys who are challenged by the family that they've created — and that's pretty fierce."

Fierce, indeed!

Ricky Gervais Agrees With Steve Carell's Decision To Leave The Office

Filed under: TV NewsSteve CarellRicky Gervais

Ricky Gervais, the creator of The Office, thinks that Steve Carell made the right decision to leave The Office after next season.

He explains:

"It was of course inevitable (and sad), but I wish him all the luck in the world. He is quite possibly the nicest, hardest working man in America and it has been a joy working with him over the last six years. (And taking the piss out of him at every award show.)

It was expected of me, as executive producer, to persuade him to stay on. With syndication in full swing the more successful the show remains, the more billions we all make. It was tempting, but the truth is, I believe he is doing the right thing. He's fulfilled his contract and more, and is a huge film star now. (I knocked it on the head after 12 episodes and a Christmas special.)

I'd be lying if I said he should do more. He shouldn't. He should move on, continue to do great work, and buy a new house every time The Office is repeated somewhere. (That's what I do. Maybe I'll buy one next door to him one day. That'll f–king teach him.) Good luck Steve."

LOLs!

We wish you luck, too, Steve!

Seinfeld Reruns Make BANK!

Filed under: TV NewsJerry Seinfeld

Serious bank!

The reruns of the super successful Seinfeld have made $2.7 BILLION since the show went off the air 12 years ago!

Jerry Seinfeld and co-creator Larry David have an undisclosed ownership stake in the show that provides them with millions each year — but it looks like the other co-stars didn't hold out for that in their contracts so they don't receive any syndication money.

Bummer!

ap080409050319tv.jpg

Bummer for Barbara!

ABC has told the cast of The View that they won't be taking Oprah's coveted 4 p.m. time slot after she departs.

Co-creator Barbara Walters could have earned tens of millions of dollars if the show had been sold into syndication!

Babs says:

"We are comfortable and happy at 11 a.m., but 4 [p.m.] is better . . . and more lucrative. And [ABC] thought it was in interesting idea."

But not inneresting enough!!

Too bad.
