It's network upfronts week, and what a wonderful time to be alive! All the promise of new shows with great casts and expertly cut trailers, plus all the fun of prematurely mocking shows with dumb plots and even worse CGI (seriously, Once Upon a Time? What is even happening there, ABC?). But what's even better is that we can thank the TV gods for the rare moments when networks get it right and decide to pass on awful-sounding pilots. As with every year, many possible disasters were rejected this season, but these are the ones we're happiest about. (Assuming they don't get "saved" by another network or come back to haunt us next summer, of course.)
Heidi Klum is abiding by everyone's favorite age-old adage: sex sells!
It's the middle of the week and people are suddenly popping up in places you might least expect them to.
Surprisingly, even though Idol wasn't on last night, there's a heck of a lot of talk about it today. Not that any of it amounts to much of anything, but hey, it's a slow news day (again), and I'll take what I can get. If that means random Idol speculation from Simon Cowell, so be it. Also, there's some news on that Gossip Girl spinoff that's making this TV nerd pretty happy.
