"Office" Baby Shower: Angela Kinsey Announces Pregnancy

Break out the saxophone-playing baby posters.

At last, some good news for the cast and crew of NBC's The Office, which saw production shut down on the second day of the WGA strike during the filming of their final script.

Angela Kinsey, who plays dour accountant Angela Martin, has announced that she is pregnant with her first child, according to a report in US Weekly.

“She and her husband are very excited,” the Kinsey's rep told the magazine.

Kinsey's husband is TV writer Warren Lieberstein, who has written for such series as Carpoolers and All of Us. He also happens to be the brother of writer/actor Paul Lieberstein, who plays Toby on The Office.

No word yet if the series' producers will write Kinsey's pregnancy into the fourth season's storyline, though how hilarious would it be if the prim and proper Angela--currently embroiled in a love triangle with Dwight and Andy--had a bit of a paternity issue?

Welcome back! I hope the writers don't make Angela pregnant. Those storylines never do well. Either she has a baby, which kills comedy, or she does a Melrose Place down a flight of stairs, which ... kills comedy.

I actually think that a pregnant Angela could be a very funny storyline for The Office. There's a lot of different directions you could take it. As long as she doesn't put a hat on the baby and make it hold a sax!

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.

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
