    Cochran has another new job:

    I'm a writer on a new CBS sitcom that premieres this fall! The show is "The Millers," and it stars Will Arnett, Margo Martindale, Beau Bridges, and JB Smoove. I'm more excited than I can really articulate over a Facebook status, but I just wanted to share the good news! I'll be moving out to LA at the end of next week.

    Wow, good for him! Does he actually have any experience, or are they looking for his pov at the writers' table? He's certainly articulate, insightful and funny, but that's a big leap to tv writer.

    I don't think he has any experience as a TV writer; I guess the producers like his writing samples and want to give him a chance. I'm sure he'll do quite well in LA as he's a bright guy and seems pretty well grounded.

    that's great - when he said he wanted to write, I immediately thought of tv writing for him. Hope he does well.

    Survivor host Jeff Probst revealed new details about the upcoming season on Friday as well as possible concepts for future seasons.
    Meh. There already is a concept, and it's called Survivor.

    And this is funny:

    "We've talked about an all-winners season quite a few times and it really comes down the cast," Probst said. He added that some of the setbacks have been trying to find the right group of winners to come back.

    genevieve, as soon as I heard about this concept and then the casting rumours, I figured they'd be grasping at straws - Jeff's interview above pretty much confirmed it for me.

    I'll wait to see the official cast list and watch the first ep to see how it's presented, but I ain't excited about this one. I don't like to watch too many shows anyway, and it was easy enough to ditch Survivor last season as there are enough other good shows right now to fill my dancecard

    I've been cutting down my tv watching entirely, Survivor is one of the last ones that I always make sure to watch - will definitely give the season a chance, as last season had some amazing moments (and a very satisfying winner), but it's easier to walk away from shows than it used to be

    ITA. For many years Survivor was top of my schedule, but these continuing retread seasons and "twists" are so old. I don't mind the odd stunt casting of a celebrity, or even an occasional retread if there's a purpose attached to it, but when it's half or more of the cast,

    I think part of the problem is they set these themes, and then can't cast it properly. They call them favourites, but at least several each time are people fans barely remember, or that fans grew sick of long ago; or they call it heroes vs villians and even the players can't quite figure how some of them qualified for those labels; and now, if the rumour above is true, they won't all even be family members, and yet they're calling it "blood."

    I admit this twist does sound kind of awful but I will give it a chance. The concept of Heroes vs Villains seemed kind of hokey when I first heard about it and it ended up being one of my favorite seasons.
