It’s not news that Arrested Development is coming back via Netflix. What is news is that the episodes will all be released at once, turning that day into a de facto holiday for much of generations X and Y, and possibly even millenials, though I have no idea what that phrase means.

Along with the news of the 10-episode comedy atom bomb, we learned from no less than show creator Mitch Hurwitz that Scott Baio’s Bob Loblaw will be returning as well. Of course, it’s biologically impossible to not enjoy the name Bob Loblaw (He lobs law bombs!), but the character didn’t do much for me, as rejecting Lindsay’s advances had become old hat by the time he appeared on the show.

However, there is no shortage of characters that I do feel passionate about, and who should find their way onto the show post-haste. Here are eight such characters.

Feel free to use the comments to remind me that I’m an idiot for not including your favorite character. Someone needs to wipe this shit-eating grin off my face.

Wayne Jarvis

Professionalism is the name of the game with Mr. Jarvis. He does not find the buffoonery of Cirque de Soleil amusing, so it should come as no surprise that he’s also not thrilled with Lindsay and Michael’s brand of buffoonery in getting back at Lucille.

He plays comically over-the-top foil for the Bluth family, constantly shaking his head in disapproval at the unprofessional antics of the family.

Best line (so far): I shall hide behind the couch.

Gene Parmesan

Gene Parmesan, “master of disguise,” doesn’t really seem to be impressing anyone but Lucille Bluth, which leads my filthy mind to think that they have some sort of relationship that wasn’t explored in the first run. While he does manage to surprise Lucille, I think she’s a pretty forgiving audience, as he generally seems to just drape himself in an outfit and mumble.

Wayne Jarvis would not be impressed with Mr. Parmesan’s level of professionalism, especially in light of Parmesan’s constant need to be paid in full, up front.

Best line (so far): I’m sorry. I feel like such an (bleep).

5 Most Nauseating Reality Show Pregnancies http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/5-most-nauseating-reality-show-pregnancies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/5-most-nauseating-reality-show-pregnancies/#comments Wed, 30 Nov 2011 23:27:11 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=238275 These are more disgusting than the birthing scene in 'Beloved'.

Today, Kourtney Kardashian announced to the press that she will be bringing another fame whore into the world. So far, she has not detailed how she will be cashing in on the pregnancy, but you can bet that magazines will shell out top dollar for rights to first pictures, and a reality television camera will likely follow her into the delivery room. Then, after 72 days, we’ll all be shocked when she announces that she doesn’t want the baby anymore and tries to shove it back into her womb. Those wacky Kardashians.

Okay. So maybe that’s a bit extreme. One thing we do know is that the coverage of her pregnancy is certain to be nauseating. Much like these five pregnancy-centric reality shows.

16 and Pregnant

If there’s one mission that 16 and Pregnant has achieved, it’s raising the awareness that it’s hilarious when fat people hit one another. Also, pregnancy is bad. Never get pregnant. But seriously. It may seem insensitive to laugh after heavyset-on-heavyset violence, but I counter that accusation with this:

I rest my case.

Pregnant in Heels

Bravo‘s Pregnant in Heels follows Maternity Concierge Rosie Pope as she helps entitled, expectant New York caricatures and their effeminate husbands trick out their nurseries and obtain other assorted baby needs. Just don’t go to her with any spell check needs.

Scott Baio Is 46… and Pregnant

Don’t let the banner image fool you. Scott Baio is 46… and Pregnant is not about Chachi’s Thomas Beatie-esque attempts to father a child himself. It focuses more on his selfish fear and adjustment to the idea of having to wake up early and have a baby touching his stuff with all of its baby germs. Who can blame him? I’d be pissed too to find Honey Nut Cheerios in my humidor.

The Rachel Zoe Project

I’ll admit that I have never watched The Rachel Zoe Project. But when I began researching this article and asking around she was everyone’s first recommendation for nauseating pregnant reality stars. Strength in numbers.

Tori & Dean: Inn Love

Tori & Dean: Inn Lovefollows the couple as they eagerly search for a way to spend the inheritance she netted from her estranged, dead father. Well, at least it has likable characters at its center. The first season follows the expectant couple as they search for a bed and breakfast to fix up and make terrible with their presence. By season two, they were no longer enamored with the notion of working for a living and returned to the limelight of Hollywood having successful spun her inheritance into more wealth and fame.

Nick At Nite Willing To Give Scott Baio A Sitcom http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/nick-at-nite-willing-to-give-scott-baio-a-sitcom/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/nick-at-nite-willing-to-give-scott-baio-a-sitcom/#comments Sat, 07 May 2011 00:08:44 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211018 'Daddy's Home' is a multi-camera sitcom created by and starring Baio, about an actor who used to play a TV dad. But there's a startling twist...

The last time I saw Scott Baio was when he replaced Henry Winkler for four episodes on “Arrested Development.” When you can’t keep a celebrity the size of The Winkler, you gotta move a couple notches down the ladder to Baio. That makes Baio the perfect man for the job of headlining a sitcom on Nick At Nite, where their original programming budget is determined by how many times people will keep watching “The Nanny.”

Daddy’s Home is a multi-camera sitcom created by and starring Scott Baio, about an actor who used to play a TV dad. Now he’s becoming a dad for real, and he’s “ironically unprepared” for the real-life role. Yeah, that sounds like a sitcom from the 80s to me. Baio, Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey are executive producing, along with pilot writers Tina Albanese and Pat Labyorteaux. (Deadline)
