Jace, have any pilots been made available for screening to critics yet?

Here's my early opinion after watching the promos:

- Raising Hope

This looks GREAT. I'm so glad FOX is turning to more single camera comedies, and this show looks like it could be a classic. I laughed out loud several times during the promos. But it also looks like it could be touching and meaningful.

- Running Wilde

Great pairing for Raising Hope, really hope Glee helps these shows in the ratings. Keri Russel?! Will Arnett?! Coming to us from Mitch Hurwitz? Count me in, please.

- Lonestar

Not something I'm dying to see, but this looks well-written, well-produced, and compelling. And more like something from FX than FOX. I applaud the network for this one. I most likely won't watch it unless it gets picked up for a full season because my fall is going to be really busy, but I hope this makes it. If FOX can turn this into a success we'd probably see the networks going more for quality rather than simply "commercial".

- Ride-Along

I think I'll like this more than I did "The Shield", and also a bit like a cable series, although I think this one could be a hit.

- Bob's Burgers

Meh. It's good to see something that's not created by Seth McFarlane on FOX's Sunday line-up. Um...that's all.

- Mixed Signals

Looks decent enough, but doesn't look or feel like something that's going to last beyond its initial order.

The Mixed Signals preview had me cracking up. So I'll probably check that out. And I'm not sure about Raising Hope, but I might give it a try. Doesn't hurt that they'll air after Glee.

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 .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.


Back in 2006, I founded a television blog called Televisionary (the very one you're reading now).  At the time, it was a little side-project that I stared while working in television development: something to do during the off-hours or (my infrequent) down-time or at my desk during my lunch breaks.  Over the next few years, Televisionary morphed into a full-time job as I watched almost everything on television and cataloged my thoughts, penning reviews, conducting interviews with talent, breaking news, and aggregating the day’s entertainment news headlines and major listings every morning. It got noticed by Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times , The Chicago Tribune and CNN, Deadline and Variety . Televisionary took on a life of its own. It became discussed in Hollywood and I was always surprised to discover that actors or producers or executives who read my TV blog. It was a secret at first, one that I eventually shared with a few friends before spreading outwards, thanks
