Catch ABC's "Pushing Daisies" at San Diego; New Promo Unveiled

Yes, I've already seen the pilot for Pushing Daisies a zillion times. (Come on, where were you when I published my advanced review of the pilot--the first one on the Internet, mind you--way back when in May?)

All joking aside, the fact that I've seen the pilot hasn't stopped my eagerness to catch the cast and crew of Pushing Daisies at Comic-Con San Diego at the end of the month for a sneak peek and Q&A panel on Saturday, July 28th at 9:15 am.

So, if you're going to be in SD for the con, I strongly urge you to drop by the screening and try to figure out which gushing fanboy I am.

If that's not enough incentive, how about this brand-spanking-new promo for Pushing Daisies, courtesy of the wonderful folks at Warner Bros. Television?

Come on, aren't you just dying to see the series right now?

I have to admit it was a hard choice between this and the Bionic Woman screening since their times overlap, but in the end this won out.
Besides I'll get to see the beautiful Sackhoff at the BSG panel, so I guess I can wait a few hours.
BTW you going all weekend or just for Saturday? Maybe we'll bump into each other.

Also if the show itself didn't have me dying to see it, the name of his dinner "The Pie Hole" would have got me there.

I've been seeing previews for Pushing Daisies for a while now and the entire time I could've sworn that the girl was Zooey Deschanel. I just found out it's not her but this show looks quirky and entertaining enough that I'll do my best to suck it up and watch anyway.

Matt, nope, it's the adorable Anna Friel, whom I promise you'll fall in love with after you see the pilot. Trust me.

Cinemaniac, I'll be at Comic-Con Friday through Sunday (damn Lost event got shifted to Thursday though), so I will be around!

The chance to see PD and catch a glimpse of Jace? I'm there.

I've seen both the Pushing Daisies pilot and Bionic Woman. Both are great but I think you made the right decision to see PD at Comic-Con. You're in for a real treat! Plus, I'm sure it will look stunning on the big screen. Enjoy!

Yes, I read your review back in May and I'm still jealous that you get to see the pilots so early. Any chance you can slip those of us who can't go to Comic Con a copy of the PD pilot? I'm begging you, man.

Wish I could be there! Pie, too! Thanks for the tip off, Jace.

Kristin Chenoweth is so hot in that show. Oh my God... She's amazing. (She plays Olive Snook)

Anna Friel was hot too.

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: 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

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
