Wanda Sykes Gets Hew Own TV Show- Finally!

We just discovered that comedian and actress Wanda Sykes is finally getting her own show with the FOX network that will be featured on Saturday nights, and hosted by Sykes. The show, so far titled The Sykes show, is expected to launch in the fall, and would fill the void left by the recently canceled sketch series MadTV.

The Sykes show will be scheduled to air at 11 p.m, and it looks like it will be an hour long show. We hear that the show is being designed to look more like a panel series similar to Bill Maher's HBO show, as opposed to a regular talk show. One distinct difference that the Sykes show will offer is the show will follow Sykes as she shoots field segments along with topical panel discussions.

Ghostbusters 3 Takes Another Step Closer To Reality

As we reported about a month ago, Director and actor Harold Ramis confirmed to MTV what we told you; Ghostbusters 3 is shaping up for a film with a new cast and an old cast combined. On MTV Ramis promised that all the old characters will take part in the updated version, including Bill Murray (Dr. Peter Venkman) and Dan Aykroyd (Dr. Raymond Stantz), who co-wrote the original films. "We're all going to be in it in different kinds of roles," Ramis said. "We're going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters."

At the moment, Ramis is waiting on a first draft of the script, which is being penned by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, two writer/producers on "The Office," who also wrote "Year One." "Gene and Lee, both of whom I mentored, are now writing the new 'Ghostbusters,' " Ramis said. "I'm consulting with them, as is Dan Aykroyd and [original director] Ivan Reitman.

"Bill Murray is just waiting for the truckload of money to arrive to get him out of his office," Ramis joked.
