The Ghostbusters reboot is currently underway. Director Paul Feig has been keeping the public informed on all the changes that are occurring as of late, creating a lot of controversy through the pre-production progression. With original cast members split on the project (Bill Murray being all for it, and Ernie Hudson being against the sassy girl-power remake), the line of demarcation couldn’t be any more noticeable.

(Talk nerdy to me ladies)
Because there can never be enough nerdy television, CBS is teaming with Conan O’Brien’s Conaco in association with Warner Bros for something called Super Fun Night.
The Hollywood Reporter describes the show as “a multi-camera comedy that revolves around three nerdy female friends on their ‘funcomfortable’ quest to have ‘super fun’ every Friday night.” So… it’s a female version of the Big Bang Theory, with pillow fights. Oh there will be pillow fights, I’m sure.
As for just who’s starring in Super Fun Night? Right now, Australian actress Rebel Wilson (Brynn from Bridesmaids) is locked. She will also write and co-produce. The pilot itself will more then likely draw some heat from pro-Bang Theory viewers, but with a mostly female cast the potential for a hit series is there. Anytime you throw nerds and boobs together on TV people are going to want to see the results.
