'Celeb Rehab' Postponed -- We Got No Big Drunks

6/1/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0516_celebrity_rehab_logo_EXIt should be easier than finding oil in the Gulf ... but "Celebrity Rehab" has been put on ice because they just can't find a big star with a big problem.

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ producers of "Celeb Rehab" can't fill the roster for the new season, which was supposed to start shooting today.

As we first reported, Tila Tequila and Jason Wahler signed on, but there are still holes in the roster.  Most important ... we're told there isn't a big headliner.

Our sources say producers offered Lindsay Lohan $1 million and her own show, but LiLo turned them down.  We're thinking a good move on Lindsay's part.

Scroll down for more sobering news ...

Say what you will, Drew Pinsky is a serious addictionologist. He has helped hundreds of people recover, first at Las Encinas, and lately at Pasadena Recovery Center. That he is popular, famous, and wealthy, bothers certain people. We can certainly debate the merits of his shows, but consider this: at least we are talking about the problem in ways we never did before. Sure, most of the celeb graduates relapse.... AS DO MOST REHAB GRADUATES. It is an ongoing, lifelong process of recovery, and relapse is - frankly - common to everyone. Take it from me, who knows Drew and has been a patient in his program: exposing addiction to the light of day and making it clear that it is a disease and not a moral failing is, in itself, a benefit to society which we disparage to our own detriment.
