So that's how "CSI" is doing its writers' swap with "Two and a Half Men."
That's right: Nick is making a cameo in the May 5 episode. (Can we say "May sweeps stunt"?) George Eads has shown signs of comedic chops — or at least good timing — on "CSI" so that should be a good time. It's a shame he'll only be making a cameo.
And during the same show, Jenny McCarthy returns as Courtney, Evelyn's new husband. OK, I admit it: Jenny McCarthy's a guilty pleasure. And wouldn't she be perfect to play Harley Quinn, the Joker's girlfriend and former psychiatrist, if the character were in the upcoming Batman flick? (You had to expect I'd get a Batman tie-in in there somewhere …)
And while I'm on a super hero kick, wouldn't Eads do a grand job as the Hal Jordan version of Green Lantern?
What time does "Two and a Half Men" air? I'll have to watch it or make sure I tape it. Now it's up to you: What do you expect from Nick on the CBS comedy? What will bring the Las Vegas CSIer to the California beach house?
Check out my Feb. 21 blog for the zany suggestions I had for the swap. (Personally, I thought the idea of Catherine coming out of retirement for a one-time pole dance had the best potential.)
