Gob from "Arrested Development", aka Will Arnett, has struck a deal with Fox to create his own show. His absence from the small screen will finally come to an end and here's to hoping that the show won't turn into some kind of generic garbage. Hubby Amy Poehler is also slated to get her own show on NBC sometime after their first child is born. I dunno, both parents are actors with starring roles on shows on different networks, that's a tall order to fill - wish them luck.

We're really enjoying that Sundance's "Iconoclasts" is returning to the air, err, cable. Tonight entrepreneur Richard Branson hangs out with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and teaches him how to swim. These odd couple pairings are both smart and funny, kind of like a dream date. If only we could figure out how to finagle the DVDs from Sundance.

The TV Junkie Plan: The Thief of Bagdad (because we're feeling classic, or maybe just classy), "The Office", "SNL Thursdays", "Iconoclasts", surfing between Letterman/Leno.
