MTV "The Comedy Awards"

MTV "The Comedy Awards" - The cabler and fellow MTV networks Spike TV, TV Land, Nick at Nite and VH1 will air the inaugural Comedy Awards simultaneously April 10 from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. Kudocast will be taped March 26.

Comedy Central previously hosted the final year of the American Comedy Awards in 2001. Those kudos ran from 1987-2000 on ABC before shifting to cable for their last installment.

New kudos event will honor the top laff talent and projects in television, film and standup and on the Web. The Academy Awards have sometimes been criticized for not giving enough recognition to comedy, and the Comedy Awards will credit those actors and films that often don't make the cut at the Oscars.

"We really felt comedy needed its own night," Doug Herzog, president of the MTV Networks Entertainment Group, told Daily Variety. "Comedy couldn't be bigger at the box office, and TV comedies are very strong. Also, because of new platforms, comedy is more accessible than ever before."

Show is set to be a two-hour telecast. Herzog added that while this year's inaugural event will be taped 15 days before airing, future editions will likely be live.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
