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 .

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
