Ox Notes: February 4, 2010

Pamela Anderson has reportedly signed on for Dancing with the Stars 10. I wonder what kind of dance style best suits the Baywatch theme song?

Melissa Rycroft has joined Entertainment Tonight as a special correspondent, effectively nixing her chances of filling Samantha Harris’ shoes as DwtS co-host.

The retrospective Surviving Survivor airs tonight on CBS at 8 ET. Reality Blurred will live blog during the show. I’ll be watching Vampire Diaries.

Starting February 18, my fellow PS3 owners and I can watch The Tester on the Playstation Network. The Hal Sparks-hosted competitive reality show puts gamers through a series of challenges as they compete for $5000 and a job as a professional game tester (which isn’t as glamorous a gig as it sounds).

I’m getting excited for Sunday’s "big game": Puppy Bowl VI on Animal Planet! Beginning at 3 p.m. ET, the show — which features puppies playing on a miniature football field — repeats every two hours until the wee hours of the morning. The official Puppy Bowl site is borked, but you can view the Starting Lineup here.

Zap2It interviewed the Puppy Bowl referee, Andrew Schechter.

If you don’t intend to watch the actual Super Bowl but are still interested in the commercials, cable network Spike will post all of the commercials online at Spike.com almost immediately after they air on CBS. Thank you, Spike!
