Chuck Me: Yvonne Strahovski Talks Season Three of "Chuck"

While I still don't have any news about when Season Three of Chuck will launch on NBC (January? March?), I do have a rare treat for Chuck-starved fans looking for something to tide them over until next year, when NBC will bring the action-comedy back to its schedule (now with six more episodes as well!)

I had the opportunity to visit the set of Chuck a few weeks back and those of you who follow me on Twitter have been anxiously awaiting any news from that visit.

So, I bring you the first of several video interviews with the cast of Chuck as I sit down with Yvonne Strahovski inside the Castle to discuss the felicitous Season Three Chuck renewal, love triangles, comedy and action, what's coming up for Sarah Walker, and much more.

Without further ado, I'll let Yvonne Strahovski fill you in on some non-spoilery Chuck goodness.



Season Three of Chuck will launch on NBC in 2010.

Woot! Very informative interview Jace. Thanks.

And though it goes under the D'uh Files for the umpteenth time - Yvonne is looking fine and very cute at the same time.

Can't wait for Season3.

Jace-

Fantastic interview, some excellent stuff throughout. I just hope the show doesn't lose it's comedic and fun aspect with all the apparent romantic drama. I find it extremely interesting that Sarah is now the one who apparently is going to have all of these "lady feelings" while Chuck just kind of drifts away deep into the spy world. Especially after Chuck was the one telling his father that "he loves her". Quite a role reversal!

Thank you for the great interview! I've been missing me some Chuck and this totally cheered me up. I can't wait for it to return...whenever that is!

Wow. Raw emotion and action stuff? I think Yvonne's on the wrong show. Haha. Here I was thinking she'd want to be in on the comedy because that's the strong point of Chuck. Great interview. Thanks.

Wow, great interview Jace!

Really thoughtful questions and a relaxed atmosphere produced a positive feel and was informative for a change. ;)

It must be hard to find questions that haven't been asked a million times before but will still elicit an interesting response.

You seemed a little tense though, although it's hard to blame you. ;)

Insightful questions. Thanks for the interview!

Excellent interview. Great questions and great responses from Yvonne. I feel much better about the new season.

Best season 3 interview I've seen so far. Her talking about Sarah dreading chuck's goal of being a spy and trying to hold on tighter to him just makes me want to watch the new season even more! a lot of Yvonne's interviews are the same thing over and over but this one was a breath of fresh air.

Great questions, incredibly boring responses. She seemed dull and down. I know that's sacriledge to say, but it is truth.

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 ,
