TV Bulletin Board (May 11)

Neil Patrick Harris and Britney Spears re-pair on CBS Monday night.

It's said that any mention of Britney Spears is still a surefire Web site traffic-driver.

That's right, Britney Spears, who will make her second guest appearance, as Abby, on the Monday (May 12) episode of CBS' How I Met Your Mother.

Ratings for the yet to be renewed sitcom spiked a bit when Brit first dropped in on March 24th.

***Husband and wife Jeff and Ally Davidson of Dallas will be among 40 fresh meat "Contenders" when NBC's American Gladiators resumes with new episodes Monday (May 12). He's a 29 year-old financial advisor. She's a 24-year-old sales rep who supposedly tried out for Gladiators on her wedding day in her wedding veil without telling her groom.

As previously noted, Gina Carano, daughter of former Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Glenn Carano, returns to the show as a Gladiator with the code name "Crush."

***The annual "American Idols Live!" tour, with Rockwall's Jason Castro in tow, will make a stop in Dallas on Aug. 25th. The venue is American Airlines Center, and you can begin buying tickets on Saturday, May 17th via Ticketmaster.

***Comedy Central is reviving The Gong Show, with comedian Dave Atell as host. It's scheduled to premiere on July 17th. On a somewhat higher plane, Whoopi Goldberg has been named to host the 62nd annual Tony Awards ceremony on CBS. The date is June 15th.

***Spike TV, whose target audience is young males, has announced its latest "non-scripted development slate."

The eye-catcher is Idiot Hall of Fame, envisioned as a late-night half-hour series that "takes a humorous look at some of the most truly idiotic actions of all time."

Remember, only the "most truly idiotic actions" are eligible, which makes Danny Bonaduce's every waking moment a veritable candyland.

***Spike somehow missed out on signing Hulk Hogan to preside this fall over Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling.

CMT (Country Music Television) instead is doing these honors, with "10 adventurous celebrities" to be named later. Bonaduce obviously is a lock after previously participating in Fox's short-lived Celebrity Boxing series. For the record, Bonaduce TKO'd Barry Williams of The Brady Bunch after flooring him five times in the show's inaugural bout.
