Ox Notes: February 25, 2009

Top Chef New York crowns its winner tonight on Bravo at 10 ET. I’m pulling for Carla or Stefan — anyone but boring Hosea. Time has an interview with Top Chef head judge Tom Colicchio.

Also on TV tonight is the season premiere of America’s Ballroom Challenge on PBS. This season features a new host, actress Jean Louisa Kelly, as well as two Dancing with the Stars vets among the first round finalists. You can find your local PBS listings here.

FOX gave the fifth season of So You Think You Can Dance a May 21 premiere date.

In TV development news, The CW renewed six shows for next season, including Gossip Girl and Supernatural. And NBC is considering bringing back I’m a Celebrity — Get Me Out of Here, even though it didn’t do so hot the first time the network tried it.

Michael Cera finally signed on to appear in the Arrested Development movie.

Conan O’Brien’s announcer for his new gig as host of The Tonight Show is none other than Andy Richter, his original Late Night sidekick.

Variety’s Brian Lowry wrote about the increasing opportunities for talented older actors and actresses on network and cable TV shows.

I’ve finally found a reason to watch Hell’s Kitchen: Little Gordon. Gordon Ramsay says the nine-year-old miniature Gordon will appear on an upcoming season of the show. Watch and enjoy:
