1. I have been listening to Justin Timberlake’s new CD. Judging from the lyrics, I think I underestimated Cameron Diaz; she must be a fabulous…girlfriend.

2. My two favorite shows of the season so far? Heroes and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

3. I look forward to 30 Rock, but am a little disconcerted by the fact that the fabulously funny Rachel Dratch has been demoted to part time player; she was a main character, but that role now belongs to Jane Krakowski (Ally McBeal).

4. The Office has returned, better than ever. The premiere episode is destined to become a classic. Does anyone look directly into the eyes of a camera better than Jim? I don’t think so.

5. I can’t wait for Dexter, which begins on Sunday. If you have Showtime, you have to tune in. It’s a genius concept…Michel C. Hall (David from Six Feet Under) stars as a blood splatter expert by day and serial killer by night. Seriously.

6. Grey’s Anatomy: Although many are on Team Meredith (for reasons I cannot fathom), I have always been on Team Addison. I love that she drunk-dialed McSteamy during the inebriated day of mourning her marriage. Doesn’t he still live in NY, where she and Derek relocated from? If so, she must have called him pretty early on…

7. My thoughts about the four Project Runway finalists: I like Uli and I don’t mind the patterns. I like that Laura is consistent and has a very distinct point of view, not to mention the fact that she looks like an uptight career woman but is in fact a mother of 6 with a sailor’s mouth. I don’t like much at all about Jeffrey. I heart Michael Knight. I am on his bandwagon. He seems like a genuinely nice guy and has a diverse portfolio of styles. Regardless of the outcome, he will probably be the most successful after the show.

8. I love that Sally Field and Tom Skerritt are playing a married couple again, this time on Brothers & Sisters. Don’t forget… they were the parents in Steel Magnolias! Although I always think about and am still creeped out by his infamous scene with Drew Barrymore in Poison Ivy. For the four others of you who have seen this 1992 guilty pleasure flick, one word: piano.

9. The third season of Lost begins next Wednesday…Bring. It. On. I will be posting a blog dedicated to predictions and theories next week before it airs. Stay tuned!

It was just announced that Ellen DeGeneres will host next year’s Academy Awards. Finally! Ever since she did a brilliant job of hosting the Grammys in 1996, I have wondered why she wasn’t an obvious choice for the Oscars as well. She deserves it, and I am thrilled that she has been given the world as her stage.  Ellen is well respected in both the industry and among her millions of fans. I have to admit that I am encouraged; the opportunity and recognition are due to true talent, regardless of who shares her heart and her home. It is a step forward, and I often look down that path with guarded enthusiasm.

Right now…


What I’m Renting

Nip/Tuck, Season 3


What I’m Buying

Arrested Development, Season 3

Lost, Season 2

The Office, Season 2


What My Primetime Fall TV Schedule Looks Like (Thanks to my BFF, TiVO)



9pm - Heroes

10pm - Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip



None of the shows appeal to me – any suggestions or recommendations?



8:30pm - 30 Rock (They have to give this a better time slot…and it conflicts with Bones!)

9pm - Lost

10pm - The Nine

11pm – Top Chef, Season 2 (I love how shows repeat often at later times on cable)

THURSDAY (the toughest choices by far)

8pm - Ugly Betty (Replacing Survivor, which I will not be watching for the first time ever…but that’s entirely different blog for another day. Also, if this show isn’t as good as My Name is Earl, I’m switching back to that in this time slot.)

8:30pm - The Office

9pm - Grey’s Anatomy

10pm - Six Degrees (You had me at ‘Executive Producer: JJ Abrams’)



9pm – Las Vegas (A true guilty pleasure)



Even I have a life.



8pm - The Amazing Race

9pm - Desperate Housewives (I’m giving it 3 episodes to improve and lure me in)

10pm - Brothers & Sisters

What shows made YOUR list?
