Touched By an Angel…of Death: Ring the death knell for Touch, because all signs point to cancellation for the struggling Fox drama now that star Kiefer Sutherland has been offered another show. The actor has reportedly been offered the lead in NBC’s drama The Black List, about the world’s most wanted criminal who suddenly decides to turn himself in, along with everyone he’s ever worked with. The offer is in second position to Touch, with means Sutherland is contractually obligated to keep his old job if the drama is renewed for a third season, but this new offer combined with Touch‘s less-than-stellar Friday night ratings likely mean it won’t be back. But anything’s possible! [Entertainment Weekly]

Gone Campin’: USA has greenlit a brand new reality series called Summer Camp.

At the end of the eight episodes, they’ll face off in an Olympic-style “Campathalon.” The new series will air in the summer, which is coincidentally (or completely logically) when NBC is premiering its new summer-camp-set drama, Camp.
