Televisionary in The New York Times Today!

I always hate to self-promote but if there's a time to do so it's when you get mentioned in The New York Times... which doesn't exactly happen every day.

That's right, longtime readers, Televisionary has earned a mention in the pages of The New York Times itself, with yours truly being quoted in today's Arts section.

In "‘Motherhood’ Viewers: Hold the Ideas," an article by Brian Stelter about ABC ceasing to ask viewers for ideas for upcoming episodes of its new comedy series In the Motherhood, I'm quoted about why television series don't accept unsolicited (or, really, solicited) ideas from viewers for potential storylines... and I manage to relate the legal issue to Lost, of course.

Did you really expect anything less?

Jace, the links in your post are broken. Badly enough that I can't even manually fix them to follow.
R.A. Porter said…
Oh, and congrats!

R.A. Porter,

Links seem to be working fine for me and have now double-checked them as well. Very odd. Care to try it again?
R.A. Porter said…
Okay. Really strange. Now they're fine. The first time, they were all links to blogger itself with the link text appended as the paths. I even checked the source of the page the first time.

We'll just chalk that up to gremlins, I guess.

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
