Ox Notes: January 31, 2008

Jeff Probst has been spreading gossip from the set of Survivor: Micronesia. The host told Entertainment Tonight that it’s a good thing that the show provides prophylactics to the contestants, as cameras caught a couple of Survivors gettin’ it on.

Probst also told Reality Blurred that, after this season, James’s decision not to use his two Immunity Idols during Survivor: China will no longer be the biggest blunder in Survivor history.

Former Survivor Rupert Boneham has started a record label that specializes in promoting the musical talents of former reality show contestants. Just what the world freaking needs. I can’t wait to hear Rupert’s own first album, GRRRRRR, and its title track, "RRRRRAWRRRR."

ABC’s next Bachelorette is none other than DeAnna Pappas, one of the girls Brad Womack didn’t propose to on the last season of The Bachelor.

The Futon Critic has a list of original programs NBC has scheduled for February, complete with episode descriptions.

The Parents Television Council is protesting CBS’s decision to air the first season of Showtime’s Dexter, although not letting your kids watch television at 10 p.m. on a school night seems like a better solution to me.

Smallville and Supernatural return to the CW with new episodes tonight, and I’m a spoilerphobe. So, I won’t be reading this TV Guide preview until after I’ve seen the shows.

Jermaine Clement of HBO’s Flight of the Conchords has signed on to the film Gentlemen Broncos, which I only mention as an excuse to include a video of my favorite FotC song, "Business Time."
