TV Gal signs off

Tue, 29 Jan 2008 10:13:00 +0000

This is my final column for the Seattle P-I, and for a lot of reasons, the most difficult piece I've ever had to write. There's no show to analyze, no grist for comedic riffing -- just a blank page, and a lot of memories to sift.



“The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” return tonight … but is that a good thing?

Mon, 07 Jan 2008 10:07:00 +0000

The big news last week was the return of late night hosts to ABC, NBC and CBS. Certainly a big deal for anyone keeping track of the Writers Guild of America strike, and a curious ability test for Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O'Brien, all of whom have been broadcasting without the benefits of scripts. David Letterman and "Late Late Show" host Craig Ferguson, in contrast, were able to secure the Writers Guild of America's blessing separately from its negotiation with CBS. Both of their programs are owned by Letterman's company, Worldwide Pants, enabling them to negotiate their own deals.



The CW reheats its midseason schedule

Mon, 07 Jan 2008 06:02:00 +0000

See what happens when the shifts hit the fan? The fan in this case being empty writers' rooms throughout Hollywood.



“Dexter” strikes again…on CBS

Mon, 07 Jan 2008 05:37:00 +0000

CBS snags "Dexter" for a network run.With the writers strike showing no sign of ending soon, networks are calling on their contingency plans.



The solution to NBC’s midseason mystery? Bring on “Monk” and “Psych”!

Tue, 18 Dec 2007 10:11:00 +0000

Apparently realizing that its schedule cannot survive on a diet of "American Gladiators" and "The Baby Borrowers," NBC intends to re-air two USA series, "Monk" and "Psych," on Sundays in March, following the debut of their new seasons on USA at 9 and 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11.



**”Lost” returns January 31 in “Grey’s Anatomy’s” slot**

Fri, 14 Dec 2007 09:19:00 +0000

ABC took its sweet time finalizing its midseason schedule. Now that we've taken a gander, we see why.



“Project Runway”: Farewell, Gentleman Jack.

Thu, 13 Dec 2007 11:23:00 +0000

Every show has a pattern, and "Project Runway" is no exception. You can never completely see where an episode is going of course; Wednesday night's "Runway" provided ample evidence of that. But after the first couple of weeks you can usually tell where the first cuts will be made.



“Life on Mars” returns; “Big Shots” gets deflected.

Tue, 11 Dec 2007 08:50:00 +0000

Selling viewers on BBC America's programs is easier than it's ever been. More people are aware of the channel's existence, a statement you couldn't make even a few years ago, and many are watching with enthusiasm.



“Project Runway”: Making fashion don’ts into fashion “oh no they di’in’ts!!!”

Fri, 07 Dec 2007 07:40:00 +0000

Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Sweet P.



NBC sets a premiere date for “Medium,” HBO brings back “The Wire” in January.

Thu, 06 Dec 2007 10:16:00 +0000

So you don't miss it: "Medium" will return Monday, Jan 7, at 10 p.m. on NBC (KING/5).



“Heroes” ends with “Powerless” … or is it, “Pointless”?

Tue, 04 Dec 2007 09:48:00 +0000

That is the question I keep asking myself.



Now you can stop asking me when “Jericho” and “Law & Order” will be back.

Mon, 03 Dec 2007 10:50:00 +0000

Sorry if that sounds snippy but, look, I'm only human. If I had a lollipop for every time somebody asked me what happened to those shows, I'd have Dum Dums for the entire city of Seattle. And Portland. And Eugene.



“The Closer” delivers a Christmas package, “Saving Grace” returns.

Mon, 03 Dec 2007 05:30:00 +0000

It's a holly jolly homicide on "The Closer."In the midst of all the red-and-green cheer, "The Closer's" two hour special, airing tonight at 8 on TNT, gifts us with a welcome, enjoyable jolt of the good-old-fashioned police procedural business, with Brenda Leigh nailing the bad guys to the wall in her unique and wonderful way.



Project Runway: A double serving of aufing, please.

Thu, 29 Nov 2007 02:14:00 +0000

Today's wrap-up is going to be slim and a twofer, since Turkey Day forced me to skip last week's, and I have to skedaddle out of town for a day.



“Heroes”: Second to last episode, it’s all about “Truth and Consequences.”

Tue, 27 Nov 2007 10:47:00 +0000

Due to the fact that, yes, I am still on Turkey Day vacation, we're going to keep this simple. This blog consists of questions we asked our TV screen during Monday night's "Heroes" episode, "Truth and Consequences."
