'Dealbreaker' goes from a blog and a book to TV

Get ready to make a date with ABC next year. The network is developing a new comedy series based on the popular Dealbreaker relationship blog and book, reports Deadline.com.

Created by Dave Horwitz and Marisa Pinson, the site and tome have been described as a "hilarious reference guide to the qualities that, when discovered, transform the 'date you hope to go home with' into the 'date you pray never calls again.'"

In other words, all the little warning signs – aka dealbreakers – that indicate the relationship isn't going to have legs.

"American Dad" writers Nahnatchka Khan and Laura McCreary will script the TV series, which, Deadline notes, has nothing to do with the "30 Rock" fictitious dating-advice show built around character Liz Lemon’s catchphrase, “That’s a dealbreaker, ladies."

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Is Miley wrong for music video smooch?

Seventeen-year-old Miley is starring in a new music video for Rock Mafia’s song, “The Big Bang," in which she kisses a 26-year-old guy!

But I think it’s time we all accept that Miley is about to turn 18 (her birthday is just a few weeks away). A month from now we wouldn’t be having this discussion. I get why people think it is plain wrong, but at this point, if she’s okay with it and her parents are okay with it, we should be okay with it. It happens in movies with barely a whisper. It’s art.

What do you think? Post your comments below and I’ll work some of them into our show today.

Rainn Wilson joining Oprah's OWN network?

Actor Rainn Wilson might be going from "The Office" to the OWN network. The funny man tells E! Online he is currently in talks to bring his spiritual site SoulPancake to Oprah Winfrey's new channel.

"We're kind of in negotiations to try to do short pieces for their Web site or as [on-air] interstitials," said Wilson, whose SoulPancake promotes creativity and conversations about both life and spirituality.

Or, as the site puts it, it's "a place to speak your mind, unload your questions, and figure out what it means to be human."

Jake Gyllenhaal talks on-screen nudity

As a Viagra salesman who falls for a free spirit in "Love and Other Drugs," Jake Gyllenhaal spends plenty of time stripping down and steaming things up with co-star Anne Hathaway. The 29-year-old actor reveals that he had no problem with the onscreen intimacy - especially since it's the second time around.

"Anne and I had already had sex on film [in 'Brokeback Mountain']," he explains in the December issue of Esquire UK.

"There's something about the way Annie and I both work which is inherently very musical," he added. "It’s all about rhythm. There’s a rhythm to writing, there’s a rhythm to sports, there’s a rhythm to sex.”

LeAnn Rimes: 'What happened is not who I am'

LeAnn Rimes has been attacked for more than a year. By the media. By fans. By her Twitter followers.

She has been called names unsuitable to print. People accused her of being a “homewrecker,” of breaking up a family and hurting two young boys.

But in an ABC special that airs tonight, Rimes says, “That’s just not me...What happened is not who I am, period.”

Kiefer Sutherland to make Broadway debut

Looks like Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric have made amends.

The pair is set to co-star in a revival of “That Championship Season,” according to Playbill.com. The play will mark the Broadway debut of Sutherland, best known for his starring role as Jack Bauer on the now defunct hit television show “24.”

Back in 1991, Patric started dating actress Julia Roberts just after she ended her engagement to Sutherland days before their planned wedding.

The Broadway revival of Jason Miller's Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning 1972 drama will reportedly also feature Brian Cox, Jim Gaffigan and Chris Noth. The play is  scheduled to begin its run in March.
