FX Unveils Launch Date for "Nip/Tuck"

Wondering just when FX will launch Season Five of its plastic surgery drama Nip/Tuck? (Or at least when they'll stop running those slightly creepy commercials with the Hollywood sign and that eerie cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game"?) Look no further.

FX has announced that it will launch Nip/Tuck's fifth season--featuring Christian and Sean making the move to beauty-obsessed Los Angeles--on October 30th at 10 pm.

Season Five will feature Portia de Rossi, Rosie O'Donnell (returning as Dawn Budge), Bradley Cooper, Oliver Platt, and Lauren Hutton in guest roles.

8 pm: Power of 10 (CBS); Most Outrageous Moments (NBC); America's Next Top Model (CW); According to Jim/According to Jim (ABC); 'Til Death/'Til Death (FOX)

9 pm: Criminal Minds (CBS);

What I'll Be Watching

10 pm:
Top Chef on Bravo.

Doesn't it seem like forever since we had a new episode of this culinary competition? On tonight's episode ("Chef Overboard"), the remaining chefs face off in a supermarket-based challenge and then head to the high seas, where they must arrange a buffet meal. A buffet while getting buffeted by waves? This I want to see.

I liked the new commercial I saw last night, with the tattoo of Flolrida turning into a tattoo of California. At least it was something new.

I can't say that I am excited in the least, but of course I will be watching....
Finally a new Top Chef tonight! I don't know why they break it up so much and make us wait. It's a reality show...not "Lost."

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

Televisionary

Back in 2006, I founded a television blog called Televisionary (the very one you're reading now).  At the time, it was a little side-project that I stared while working in television development: something to do during the off-hours or (my infrequent) down-time or at my desk during my lunch breaks.  Over the next few years, Televisionary morphed into a full-time job as I watched almost everything on television and cataloged my thoughts, penning reviews, conducting interviews with talent, breaking news, and aggregating the day’s entertainment news headlines and major listings every morning. It got noticed by Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times , The Chicago Tribune and CNN, Deadline and Variety . Televisionary took on a life of its own. It became discussed in Hollywood and I was always surprised to discover that actors or producers or executives who read my TV blog. It was a secret at first, one that I eventually shared with a few friends before spreading outwards, thanks
