Miley Cyrus isn't going to be Disney's Employee of the Month. Evidently Miley's been boasting she'll get fired from her Hannah Montana Disney Channel series. Apparently, Miley's father, Billy Ray Cyrus, wants her to focus on her singing career, so they've been wreaking havoc on-set in the hopes of getting canned. The father-daughter team have reportedly been showing up late, which has caused production delays and angered cast and crew. Sources tell me that Billy Ray has informed people on the set he and Miley plan to do 12 more episodes of Hannah Montana before quitting the show.

Speaking of Miley...
Back in June, Miley said she would like to star in a “younger, cleaner version of Sex & the City” and now, it looks like she could get her wish. The author of Sex & the City recently told me she’s going to write two “young adult” books about Carrie Bradshaw’s teenage years. When I asked her who would play the younger Carrie she said, “I don’t know…Miley Cyrus!”

STAR Artist Chris Daughtry is going to try his hand at acting. I hear he’ll be guest starring on the 100th episode of CSI: New York in November. He’ll play a guy whose life is in danger thanks to a serial killer.

Dancing With the Stars is back tonight on ABC for its 7th season and according to the Vegas oddsmakers, Cody Linley from Hannah Montana is the odds on favorite to win. We’ll see how he does in his debut tonight at 7 p.m.

The fall TV season really kicks off tonight! Here's a list or returning shows and new debuts:
* Boston Legal, 9 p.m. -- The fifth and final season kicks off after the return of Dancing with the Stars. In the episode, Alan takes on a case involving a tobacco company and Denny battles performance issues.

* The Big Bang Theory, 7 p.m. -- Penny has a bad date with Leonard and confides in Sheldon. Sara Gilbert joins the cast for its second season.

* How I Met Your Mother, 7:30 p.m. -- Scrubs star Sarah Chalke returns as Stella to give her answer to Ted's proposal.

* Two and a Half Men, 8 p.m. -- The sixth season begins with Charlie Sheen's character crossing paths with an ex whose son looks like him.

* Worst Week, 8:30 p.m. -- This new comedy stars Kyle Bornheimer as Sam, who's planning a wedding with his expectant girlfriend. Her strict parents aren't thrilled. That '70s Show dad Kurtwood Smith also stars.

* CSI: Miami, 9 p.m. -- Who shot Horatio? An investigation is underway in the seventh-season premiere.

* Heroes, 8 p.m. -- The third chapter is titled Villains, so you can probably expect yet another good-versus-evil struggle, especially since the evil Sylar regained his powers at the end of last season. The season premiere is preceded by a "countdown" special.

Over the weekend, STAR Artist Blink 182’s drummer Travis Barker was involved in a tragic airplane crash. 4 people, including the 2 flight crew members were killed – Travis and a friend were critically injured and are, thankfully, now in stable condition.

STAR Artist David Cook’s first non-Idol single will be called “Light On” and told me more details about the song will come out this week.
