PaleyFest09: Who's In?

As tickets are now on sale for the Paley Center's PaleyFest09 (also known as the William S. Paley Television Festival) for members of the Center (they go on sale to the general public on March 1st), I thought I'd ask once again this year: who's in for PaleyFest09?

Tickets are once again hard to come by at this year's festival, which boasts a lineup that includes panels for series 90210, Battlestar Galactica and Caprica, The Big Bang Theory, Big Love, Desperate Housewives, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Fringe, The Hills, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Mentalist, Swingtown, and True Blood.

For my part, I'll be at the panels for Battlestar Galactica and Caprica, Big Love, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Alone Blog, Pushing Daisies, and Fringe, though I probably should have also requested a seat at It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia as I love that series with a fiery passion.

But I am curious to know: For those of you reading who have gotten tickets already, which panels are you attending? And for those of you desperate to obtain seats, which panels are you most looking forward to? And which are the must-have seats of the year?

Discuss. (Meanwhile, the full schedule of PaleyFest09 events can be found here.)

I wish I was back in LA so I could go to this. Man I didn't realize how much I'd miss Cali when I left.
I will be honest I actually considered renewing my membership so I could scalp tickets, but didn't want to be a dick so I refrained. Even though I could have used the cash.

I don't know if I'll be able to get tix but I would really love to see the final Pushing Daisies episodes...especially on the big screen. That would be very cool!

We'll be covering the True Blood, Dollhouse, Mentalist and maybe Dr. Horrible panels. (How much more can be said about Dr. Horrible?)

I'm going to the True Blood, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible, Pushing Daisies and Battlestar Galactica/Caprica panels with friends. Getting tickets this year was actually really easy, which is rare. It only took 10 minutes for the entire process. I'm really looking forward to seeing the PD episodes and seeing what lies in store for Caprica. And, seeing the folks behind Dr. Horrible and Dollhouse will be terrific.

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
