Today is a landmark day in my personal growth. For the first time ever, I’m not filled with resentment and rage reading about the success of an 18-year-old Hollywood writer-producer who just signed a deal with a major network. Then again, maybe it’s only because the teenager in question is totally awesome Arrested Development star Michael Cera (George Michael Bluth), who’ll be starring alongside Clark Duke in The Good Life, a series of mockumentary shorts set to air online as part of CBS’s Innertube lineup. Either way, on the strength of Cera alone, count me in on this one. How about you, PopWatchers?

Meanwhile, the good folks at Fox Reality — remember when their parent company cancelled Arrested? — have a new deal with iTunes in which they’ll offer the first episodes of all their forthcoming new series for free for one week before they premiere on the network itself. And if that means cheap, early access to classy fare like My Bare Lady, well I say…you know what? I can’t even finish this sentence right now.
