Link Tank: TV Blog Coalition Roundup for Jan. 30 - Feb. 1

Televisionary is proud to be a member of the TV Blog Coalition. At the end of each week, we'll feature a roundup of content from our sister sites for your delectation.

This week, I took an early look at next week's episode of NBC's Chuck, presented in box-busting 3D and an early look at the latest episode of Damages, reviewed TNT's new drama series Trust Me and the second season of BBC America's culinary competition series Last Restaurant Standing.

I also discussed the latest episodes of ABC's Lost, Sci Fi's Battlestar Galactica, HBO's Big Love, BBC America's Last Restaurant Standing, FX's Damages, and wondered why Fringe's Astrid still hadn't gotten some needed character development.

All this and news about FOX ordering a pilot for a US adaptation of Absolutely Fabulous, BBC America bringing Torchwood to New York Comic-Con, ABC ordering a pilot for a remake of classic sci-fi series V, Lauren Graham's new comedy pilot getting a pickup, and Gordon Ramsay cooking live on the air at FOX.

Elsewhere in the sophisticated TV-obsessed section of the blogosphere, members of the TV Blog Coalition were discussing the following items...
  • With tons of pilots in the works for next Fall, Buzz wondered if you could tell the real ones from the fakes. (BuzzSugar)
  • Jody and Rae try to make some sense of what's happening on Lost with another edition of She Said, She Said. (RTVW Online)
  • Since Ed was one of the best shows in recent memory, it is hard not to trust Tom Cavanagh in Trust Me. (Scooter McGavin's 9th Green)
  • Vance discusses Degrassi:TNG, Lie To Me, Bones, Scrubs and Lost this week. (Tapeworthy)
  • Who's the next to die on Battlestar Galactica? Dan made a graph to help try to figure it out. (TiFaux)
  • This week, the TV Addicted posted our exclusive interview with BUFFY/ANGEL/DOLLHOUSE mastermind Joss Whedon. (The TV Addict)

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 .

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it
