Found in Translation

That’s Covington actor Bob Elkins as George Washington’s translator when British soldiers are negotiating with Seneca Indians on “The War That Made America” (9-11 p.m. today, PBS). Elkins filmed the scene 18 months ago in central Pennsylvania. The four-hour documentary, which concludes next Wednesday, focuses on the French and Indian War from 1754 to 1763.

Nick Lachey, actor
Nick Lachey has made the transition from singer to actor -- at least according to the WB network. A WB press release announcing that the Cincinnati native would guest star on “Twins” Feb. 24 as a former underwear model described the 98 Degrees singer as “actor Nick Lachey.”
He’s working toward a full-time acting job on the WB this fall, taping an untitled situation comedy pilot for the network this spring. Danny Jacobson (“Mad About You”) is writing the script starring Lachey as a famous newlywed baseball player.
Lachey has appeared in “Charmed,” “Hope & Faith” and “American Dreams,” in addition to three seasons of “Nick & Jessica: Newlyweds” with soon-to-be ex-wife Jessica Simpson.

TV News
Notes from the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena:
--“Malcolm in the Middle” and “That ‘’70s Show” are toast. Both will end in May. “Malcolm” moves back to Sunday on Jan. 29.
--Fox execs also say that “Arrested Development,” which ends Feb. 10, won’t be back next season. (Duh!)
--No decision has been made on “King of the Hill,” which has not been in production all season, though new episodes could air next January.
--Conservative radio talk host Glenn Beck, whose Clear Channel show was just dropped by WKRC-AM, may join CNN Headline News’ prime-time lineup.
--ESPN2 has pulled the plug on “ESPN Hollywood,” the weekday celebrity-sports show launched in August. “Research and the ratings clearly suggest that a daily show may have been too much,” says John Skipper, ESPN executive vice president. “The Best of Mike & Mike,” highlights from the ESPN Radio morning show, will replace it at 6 p.m. on Jan. 30.

"That 70's Show" had pretty much run it's course a year or two ago. Sorry to say the same goes for "Malcom in the Middle." Malcom was a breath of fresh air went at first but like most sitcoms they just ran out of good ideas. On top of that they suffered from the other thing that kills sitcoms with kids - the little boogers wouldn't stop growing.

I like Bernie Mac but that show airs on the worst night for sitcoms. Hopefully Fox will move it to a better night and bring it back to life.
