News Brief

The Futon Critic: Rebecca Budig (soon to be back on "All My Children") returns to "CSI" tonight as exotic dancer, Candy, on an episode titled, "Lying Down with Dogs."

This is Nottingham: Video: The new Knight Rider, former "All My Children" hunk Justin Bruening, reveals he feels like a kid in a candy shop after landing the role, which was played by The Hoff in the 80s.

Press & Sun-Bulletin: Goodwill's leader becomes its leading lady. Most people in Greater Binghamton know Naima Kradjian as the woman who brought First Night to Binghamton, or as the driving force behind the Goodwill Theatre project. Kradjian's list of accomplishments is impressive, but there is something most people don't know. For seven years she worked as an actress and model, including five years as Audrey Wilson on "All My Children."

AfterElton: DirecTV has pulled the plug on the absolutely crazy soap Passions (which has had its share of gay goings-on), after picking it up at a yard sale from NBC earlier this year. Could possibly regift to Oxygen.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: All-digital TV could give news stations a place for wall-to-wall weather. It's called multicasting, and it allows the use of "side channels" to broadcast alternate programming. Fans of "Days of Our Lives" won't be disgruntled.

Digital Spy: NBC is expected to pull the plug on its remake of "Bionic Woman" after ratings for the show plummeted. The show, which stars ex-
EastEnders" actress Michelle Ryan in the lead role, debuted to 13.9 million viewers and a solid 14% share back in September. Since then, however, the number of viewers tuning in to the show has declined each week; on November 28, when the last episode produced before the WGA strike shut down work on the series aired, it dropped below 6 million.

Liverpool Echo: Never let it be said that "Hollyoaks" only employs beautiful people ... the odd talented peer of the realm slips through the net too. Theatre impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber has signed up to appear in three episodes of the show in the New Year.

Soap Opera Digest: "Once you get bitten by the bug, it's over," THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS' Daniel Goddard (Cane) laughs when describing his go-kart addiction. "I'm going out to the track and racing every week. The go-karts I'm driving go about 90 m.p.h., but when your butt's an inch-and-a-half off the ground and there's no suspension — so the car's completely stiff — you feel you're going 140. It's fantastic!"

NBC: Episode 22 of "Coastal Dreams" is now online. "The Skeleton in the Cellar" reveals the aftermath of April and Zoe finding an old diary in April's cellar which revealed they are half-sisters.
