Is this really a smart move given the success of Jersey Shore? We will see. Mtv is trying to launch more scripted programming, and the new film, Turn the Beat Around, is the first step in the transition. Hopefully Mtv has learned something since the days of Undressed. Remember that cheesy soap opera they had on the air in the late 90s?

Nancy O’Dell may be the new co-host of Dancing With the Stars

Nancy O’Dell is rumored to be replacing Samantha Harris as the next co-host of Dancing With the Stars. Other rumored new co-hosts include Vanessa Minnillo, Melissa Rycroft, and Brooke Burke, but I think O’Dell is the front-runner.

Interesting career move.
