Who Can't Wait for "Pushing Daisies" to Return?

Doesn't seem like forever ago that we first watched a remarkable new series about a Pie Maker who could bring the dead back to life with a touch?

Yes, folks, I'm talking about Bryan Fuller's gleefully imaginative Pushing Daisies, which sadly ended its truncated first season run last December due to the WGA strike. It's incredible to believe that it will have been about ten months since we last saw Ned, Chuck, Emerson, and Olive. (To say nothing of former Darling Mermaid Darlings Lily and Vivian.)

Fortunately, the wait for Season Two (which will hopefully--fingers crossed--be much, much longer than Season One) is nearly over and ABC has made a promo for those of us still under Pushing Daisies' spell to get a taste of what Bryan Fuller is cooking up for the series' sophomore season... and it looks like Season Two will include clowns, mimes, pigs, nuns, secret doors, bees, and, of course, pie.



Pushing Daisies relaunches on October 1st at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC.

Yay! I can't wait for another season of Pushing Daisies! (Especially one full of nuns, clowns, and bees!)

Eeeeeeee!!!!!!

What a great trailer! Clown, mimes and a Sound of Music homage?!? I couldn't be more excited!

However, I am terrified of bees, and that part where they come out that guy's mouth almost put me over the edge.

this was one of my favorite panels from Comic-Con. The pig Pigby. I love it. Can't wait! (though October still seems far away to me)

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

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
