Reminder: "Skins" Season Three Begins Tonight on BBC America

Just a quick reminder that Season Three of British drama import Skins kicks off tonight at 9 pm ET/PT on BBC America.

Featuring an entirely new cast (save Kaya Scodelario's Effy Stonem), Skins's third season is the perfect jumping-on point for new viewers, though regular viewers of the rowdy teen series might miss Sid, Cassie, Tony, Jal, and the rest of the original gang.

I reviewed the third season premiere of Skins way back in January (you can read my original advance review here) and interviewed co-creator Jamie Brittain back at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour about what to expect from the third season, which you can read here.

Be sure to come back tomorrow to discuss what you thought of the episode and about the new direction for the series and in the meantime, check out these sneak peeks at season three of Skins.

I think this is going to be brilliant. I love the original cast but Effy is a fascinating character and I think that having a new crowd to focus on will keep the show young and fresh. Looking forward to it.

The new season sucks ass. The vibe is different - too juvenile and unrealistic. Did they completely change the writing staff? Director? Bring back the first cast!

I'm not sure if I liked it enough to keep watching, I was waiting all this time for the original cast to pick up where they left off, that last night I was disappointed...I want to know what happened with Cassie and Sid. They were my favorite, and Jal's baby, and Tony....and we get nothing...they should have resolved it all last season if they were not coming back.

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

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
