According to the Inside Track on the Boston Herald, Jimmy Buffett is working on a television show. The article interviews Mike O’Malley (pictured right in “My Own Worst Enemy), former star of the sitcom “Yes, Dear” and current star of the short-lived NBC series “My Own Worst Enemy.”

Now that he has some time on his hands, O’Malley said he’s hoping to get back to New England and catch a Patriots [team stats] game and is once again scheduled to emcee Theo Epstein’s “Hot Stove, Cool Music” show at The Paradise on Jan. 10.

O’Malley’s also working with Jimmy Buffett on a TV show based on the characters the “Margaritaville” main man sings about.

“We’ve been out to a few networks and hope to have a commitment by Christmas,” he said.

Stubhub has released its annual concert ticket report and Jimmy Buffett’s 2008 Year Of Still Here Tour made a couple of their lists.

Buffet comes in at number 9 on the list of the Top 10 Highest Grossing Tours. Here’s the full list:

  1. Madonna
  2. Jonas Brothers
  3. Bruce Springsteen
  4. Bon Jovi
  5. Coldplay
  6. Kenny Chesney
  7. AC/DC
  8. Hannah Montana
  9. Jimmy Buffett
  10. Billy Joel

Buffett was at number 7 last year, and at number 5 in 2006.

What might come as a surprise to some parrotheads, Jimmy does not make the top 10 list for highest ticket prices. The highest average ticket price on Stubhub for 2008 was Madonna at $306. In the number 10 spot was Michael Buble at $189. Jimmy Buffett’s average price was $121 (last year the average Stubhub price was $136 for Buffett).

An interesting note that Stubhub mentions:

For the third consecutive year, six of StubHub’s Top 10 Selling Tours of 2008 also toured 20 years ago or more (Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Jimmy Buffett, Billy Joel)
