As popular as the Internet is, today‚Äôs youths are pretty much over its endless caverns of knowledge and pornography. Like the newspaper and the radio, it‚Äôs still embraced by some people, but the cooler members of society are all abandoning it. These days, it‚Äôs all about television. Why read something on a computer/phone/wrist-mounted device of some kind when you can watch people talk about something on TV instead? TMZ has a show, Facebook is getting a show, and now‚ÄĒaccording to Deadline‚ÄĒcelebrity gossip website Radar Online is getting show. At this rate, maybe The A.V. Club will get a show!

But no, that would be terrible. Radar Online is making the jump to TV, though, so let‚Äôs go back to that. The series will be a ‚Äúdaily syndicated show‚ÄĚ that is based on the website, and it will reportedly offer ‚Äúa fresh perspective on the newsmagazine and celebrity format‚ÄĚ of shows like Entertainment Tonight and Inside Edition, but with the ‚Äúpersonality‚ÄĚ of E!‚Äôs Chelsea Lately. In other words, someone probably pitched the tagline ‚Äúthis ain‚Äôt your mother‚Äôs celebrity gossip show‚ÄĚ in a meeting at some point, and it was‚ÄĒthankfully‚ÄĒrejected. Based on the front page of Radar Online‚Äės website, there will be lots of talk about whoever Teresa Giudice is, as well as constant references to the band Dawes. Wait, no, that would be a different website‚Äôs TV show.
