Saget’s Not Surviving: Bob Saget’s comedy, ‘Surviving Suburbia’ didn’t survive very well after being given a second chance on ABC. After being given a cushy spot on the network’s Wednesday night lineup, the show is being axed from the schedule once again, and Mike Judge’s vegan hit, ‘The Goode Family,’ will be its evening substitute.

Handy Valderrama: You may not have seen him in front of the camera recently, but Wilmer Valderrama’s been hard at work behind the scenes on his hit preschool series, ‘Handy Manny’ on the Disney Channel. The show’s so hot that the star is traveling to Las Vegas to announce a product franchise tomorrow, and will be embarking on 29 brand new episodes and 20 animated shorts titled “Handy Manny’s School for Tools,” to premiere 2010.

Jackass Part Deux: The jackasses are back in town! Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, Chris Pontius, Steve-O and Wee-man reprise their funny – and at times painful – characters on Sunday, June 21 at 10:00 p.m, when Jackass Number Two TV premiere on Comedy Central. The network promises lots of wall slamming and lobster pinching. And we wouldn’t expect anything less from the boys!

Gone Country: Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker and southern rock act Lady Antebellum have signed on to perform at the 2009 CMT Music Awards, hosted by Bill Engvall. They will be joined by Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Taylor Swift, among others. Scheduled to present: Randy Jackson, Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, Bill O’Reilly and Luke Wilson.
