Richards‘ show a go

Denise Richards will headline her own reality show for E! Entertainment Television, with Ryan Seacrest producing, Variety reported yesterday.

The untitled project will focus on Miss Richards‘ life as a single mom (and tabloid staple) following her high-profile divorce from Charlie Sheen. Mr. Seacrest is producing via his overall deal with E! which already has yielded the popular “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

The show will debut this summer, Variety says.

‘SNL’ return date set

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” the only late-night show completely shelved by the writers strike, is planning a Feb. 23 return if the Writers Guild of America ratifies a contract agreement and its members head back to work, Associated Press reported yesterday.

No guests or host have been announced for the return.

‘Loser’ gains season
