If the finale of Scott Baio Is 45…and Single, in which Scott’s reunited gf Renee revealed that she’s pregnant to a shocked Baio, seemed like a big old cliffhanger it’s because…it was. Scott, Renee and Co., are set to return to VH1 in a new series documenting the next phase in Scott’s life: impending fatherhood, engagement and getting to know Renee’s daughter Caitlyn. The expanded season, which should feature nine episodes (instead of last season’s seven), is set to shoot in the fall. There’s no word yet on when it will air, but you’d be wise to expect an early ’08 run. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Blog Best-Of: Madonna’s Manos
Jonesing for music on your television set? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Our Rock on TV schedule gives you plenty of choices. Here are today’s highlights.
Zoo TV – Live From Sydney, 8 p.m. (EST), VH1 Classic: U2 played Australia on the last leg of their Zoo TV tour — the one that began with the release of Achtung, Baby, and continued well past the time when people were wondering what, exactly, Zooropa was all about. Despite Bono putting on weight (so much so, he resembles Robin Williams here), and the relatively poor sound quality at the show, the band’s energy is high and Macphisto remains charismatic. When he calls the White House and asks to speak to George Bush, we still get an illicit thrill. Mainly because we tried the same thing this morning, and the operator hung up on us, too.
The Late Show With David Letterman, 11:35 p.m. (EST), CBS: Neo-punk saviors Against Me! play for Dave and Paul and everyone else. If you believe critics, then you’ll already know that the Florida band’s latest, New Wave, is out and that it’s good. We like how they’ve cleverly combined the rock-ier sensibilities of the Offspring with the swagger of the Dropkick Murphys. But mainly we like how they titled one of their earlier albums Reinventing Axl Rose. That’s balls, folks.

- Mathematicians put a number on the attractiveness of Jessica Alba‘s ass. And that ass is so bountiful that the number stayed there. [Best Week Ever]
- Tom Cruise reportedly sent his children who aren’t Suri to Scientology camp for the summer. You say Scientology camp, I say Mars. [Dlisted]
- Calum Best continues his vigil for the return of Lindsay Lohan in the only manner he knows how: douchily. [Popbytes]
- Amy Winehouse lounges in the Caribbean with one leg in the air. She’s such a driven artist, this is her way of competing with the sea breeze. [Crunk & Disorderly]
