PaleyWatch: SMG Confirmed for "Buffy" Reunion, Tickets

The big news yesterday was, of course, that Sarah Michelle Gellar would join creator Joss Whedon and the cast for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion at this year's William S. Paley Festival, to be held at the Cinerama Dome at the Arclight in Hollywood.

I'm hoping that Gellar's presence on the guest list spurs hold-outs Anthony Head and Alyson Hannigan to join up with the rest of the crew, which currently includes Amber Benson, Nicholas Brendan, Emma Caulfield, Eliza Dushku, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Seth Green, James Marsters, and Michelle Trachtenberg. (I'm also hoping they lure former writers Jane Espenson, David Fury, and Doug Petry to the event.)

As for me, I've already gotten my tickets so I'll be there (as well as at a bunch of other panels) with bells on. Great big, vampire-repellent bells on. Let's just hope they do something fun and make the pre-panel screening interesting and intriguing: the pilot perhaps? Or "Once More with Feeling"?

But I am curious: who among you is planning to go? Who has tickets already and who is planning to do whatever it takes in order to make it to this landmark event? Discuss.

What's On Tonight

8 pm: CBS News Coverage of Primaries (CBS; 8-10 pm); Biggest Loser (NBC; 8-10 pm); Reaper (CW); Super Tuesday--Showdown: Coast to Coast (ABC; 8-10 pm); American Idol (FOX)

What I'll Be Watching

Missed Season Three of Brit import Doctor Who or itching for another go-around with the Doctor and new companion Martha Jones? You're in luck as BBC America is airing the series' third season. Tonight's episode: "The Shakespeare Code," in which the Doctor and his new traveling companion, Martha Jones, are the victims of some witches' spell and end up face to face with the Bard himself.

I am definitely planning to go!

One other missing panelist, IMO, is David Boreanaz. I think he was critical to Buffy. If you are going to have Michelle T (rolls eyes), you have to have David B!

I was going to ask about David Boreanaz. But also what about Charisma Carpenter?

I am definitely planning to go but there is no way in hell that I was paying the $750 for the ticket package. Nosireebob. I'll try my chances when the general admission public tix go on sale.

I'd like to go, but since this is on a different continent, I doubt that I'll be there.:(

Anyway, good for you that you're able to go there. At least we've got someone who can tell us everything that happened there.

That would be fantastic if David Boreanaz and Charisma Carpenter could join the gang but I really, really hope that Alyson Hannigan and Anthony Head are there.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas

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 .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have
