Talk Back: CW's "Stylista"

How many of you tuned in to watch the CW's latest fashion-related reality competition series, Stylista, last night?

By now you've not only read my advance review of the first two episodes of Stylista but had a chance to catch the premiere episode yourself.

So I'm curious to know: what did you think? Did you fall for Stylista's charms or did you think it was too much of a reality version of Devil Wears Prada? Did you think that Elle magazine editor Anne Slowey was out-bitched by contestant Megan? How much longer can Kate (a.k.a. "Boobs") last in this competition with seemingly every other participant rooting against her? And the biggest question of all: will you tune in again next week?

Talk back here.

Next week on Stylista ("Hidden Gems"), the editor wannabes are tasked with dressing mannequins using specific fashion points and are also separated into teams and asked to find a "hidden gem" in Chinatown and write it up for the magazine.

I had really low expectations of this show but must admit that I kind of enjoyed it. The contestants were irksome but in a good way that makes you want to tune back in. And although Anne Slowey is a knockoff version of Miranda Priestly, I thought that, overall, the show was entertaining.

I didn't read your review (I will now). I had no interest in watching, and then I saw a commercial for it that made me want to give it a chance. I have to say, I was pretty much in it from the start. I do love watching that Devil Wears Prada world. There are some things that don't work, but it's cheesy fun, so far. They've cast it really well, I think.

But you know how uncomfortable I get when there is massive bullying going on. At first, my heart was breaking for Kate, but her attitude in the second half didn't help her cause.

And since when aren't boobs ok to show in fashion? :)

I truly despise Megan. She just seems like that spoiled, self-entitled type who will never have the self-awareness to realize how cruel she is. And for me, as a reality show villain, she isn't that interesting because she is so cruel.

I am rooting for Ashlie, so far, and that one girl who was on Ashlie's team, with the partly shaved do.

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 .

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

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.
