Colbert Goes Commando: Stephen Colbert will broadcast 4 shows from ‘The Colbert Report’ in Baghdad next week, while entertaining the troops. The special episodes – dubbed ‘Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando,’ – will air starting June 8. But Colbert insists this isn’t not a mock trip – it’s the real thing. “The USO counts this as military service, right? I might want to run for office some day,” he said. Watch full episodes of the show on Fancast.

Guilty Plea: Janice Thibodeaux, the woman who attacked Simon Cowell’s ex girlfriend at the American Idol finals – has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery charges. The woman was ordered to stay away from reporter Terri Seymour and to take anger management courses.

GSN Gets Crazy: The Game Show Awards – airing tomorrow, June 6 on GSN at 8pm/7c, will feature plenty of surprises: From Cloris Leachman’s very risque dance moves to the Brady Bunch “kids” partaking in a series of gooey challenges (and we say gooey for a reason…). It’s a must watch!

The Family That Eats Locally…: Planet Green has picked up ’100-Mile Challenge’ from a Canadian production company. The show, which just wrapped from Food Network Canada, follows families as they are challenged to eat locally and organically – food that’s farmed less than 100 miles away.
