Televisionary Turns Three Years Old!

Happy birthday!

Televisionary is three years old today. I want to thank all of you loyal readers (and fellow couch potatoes) out there who have made this site the success that it is today.

When I first started Televisionary back in February of 2006, it was to have a place outside of work where I could share my views on television programming, discuss recent episodes and news with equal relish, and showcase some off-the-beaten-path series alongside those marquee names we all know and love.

I certainly never thought that Televisionary would be thriving three years and nearly 2,000 posts later, despite some massive changes in the television industry. Beloved series have come and gone in that time (sniffle, Arrested Development and Veronica Mars), the threat of work stoppages proved to be a reality, and basic cable has become a force to be reckoned with.

But throughout it all, I hope that I've been able to offer you my honest thoughts about television programming and share my passion and love for this medium while entertaining, informing, and at times perhaps coercing you into watching some new series you might not have originally tuned in for.

So please join me in raising a glass of champagne (and your remote) and toasting three great years of Televisionary... and many more to come.

Happy Birthday!

However, I really wish you had mentioned this yesterday: I could have planned a day-long celebration of watching Veronica Mars, Chuck, and other Jace favorites. This does qualify as a good reason to miss work, right?

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

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas
