Poor Tom Bergeron. He was getting ready for the next cycle of Dancing with the Stars, and out of nowhere, a bolt of sonic power deriving from the network offices sliced through him, killing him instantly.

So, why the paradox? Because ABC renewed Wipeout believe it or not, for the SEVENTH SEASON, making it the longest running show besides America’s Funniest Videos that no one knew was still on the air. Seven seasons, y’all! Of watching people fall on their faces (and yes, shut up, of course I’ve seen it. It’s hilarious!)

Meanwhile, on the same day, ABC also ordered to series an untitled drama from David O. Russell (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook) described as an upstairs/downstairs soap centered in a private country club.

Word is, the dialogue between the country club members and its staff will be inspired by David O. Russell’s meltdown with Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart Huckabees.

“You think I’m going to have some f**king c*nt yell at me in front of the f**king crew while I’m trying to help you, b*tch?”
