Best Present Ever: "Chuck" Season Three Press Kit Arrives

I don't normally write about press kits but then again very few networks send out that many kick-ass press kits.

Until now.

Perhaps taking a page from the new butt-kicking abilities of one Mr. Chuck Bartowski, NBC has sent out what might just be the very coolest press kit ever for Season Three of Chuck, which returns to the lineup (finally!) next month.

In addition to a screener containing the first five episodes of Chuck's third season, the massive press kit--emblazoned with a Top Secret label and the words "from the desk of General Beckman" on the top--also came with a voice changer, sunglasses, and a spy kit, all very appropriate accoutrements for the upcoming third season. (Also included: a hysterical note from series creators/executive producers Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak.)

As for the episodes themselves, I can't wait to see just what's in store for our favorite band of spies when the series returns in January with its much-anticipated third season. Look for a review as soon as I'm able to screen.

This message will self-destruct in 30 seconds.

Season Three of Chuck launches Sunday, January 10th at 9 pm ET/PT before it moves into its regular timeslot of Mondays at 8 pm on January 11th.

Last year NBC released the season premier in iTunes a bit early--there's hoping they do the same this year. I can't wait.

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 ,
