    According to CNN:

    "My Name is Earl' will halt production for a coupla weeks due to Jason Lee's case of chicken pox. Show will resume shooting when he's "feeling better and is more presentable for appearing on tv."

    I swear, this almost sounds like a plot from the show. :)

    Heh... a couple of weeks? More like months. Adult chicken pox is a beast that is vasty more serious than what the kiddies get. It is potentially life threatening the older the victim. And scarring is a much more likely scenario as there tends to be far more pustules...

    Nasty stuff. Couple of weeks? Bah... unless they goop on the makeup, more like a month plus.

    According to a recent episode of Desperate Housewives, Jason might be shooting blanks when he comes back.

    Bad news for little Pilot Inspektor, desperately hoping for a sibling with an even worse name to take some of the pressure off.

    You know I forgot that was the name of his kid. What the Hell is that about anyway.

    Maybe the kid did something really bad in a previous life. Sometimes, Karma is in no rush.

    That could easily work into a story line... they'll probably have to do something.

    The way NBC has been going with it's Karma and programming they should change their name to:

    (N)ot (B)roadcast (C)apable
