Link Tank: TV Blog Coalition Roundup for April 11-13

Televisionary is proud to be a member of the TV Blog Coalition. At the end of each week, we'll feature a roundup of content from our sister sites for your delectation.

This week, I was thrilled for the return of 30 Rock and The Office, bemoaned Project Runway moving from Bravo to Lifetime, and offered some movie recommendations for television-centric features.

I also caught up on reading pilot scripts, including ABC's Good Behavior, from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, checked in on the brouhaha brewing over on Top Chef, and sampled some microwavable meals over on Last Restaurant Standing.

Elsewhere in the sophisticated TV-obsessed section of the blogosphere, members of the TV Blog Coalition were discussing the following items...
  • Buzz reminisced about the greatest game shows of the late '80s and early '90s — anyone remember I'm Telling? (Buzz Sugar)
  • This week Sandie teases us about her visit of the set of Moonlight with a picture of Alex O'Loughlin and of Jason Dohring, as well as a clip from Alex O'Loughlin's interview. There will be more to come soon! (Daemon's TV)

  • Vance outlines some better alternatives to popular (but bland) shows. Watch Everybody Hates Chris instead of According to Jim. Watch Bones instead of NCIS/CSI:Pick you city/Numb3rs. It's for your own good. (Tapeworthy)
  • What in the world? Dan writes a letter to God wondering why Project Runway is making the switch from gay wonderland Bravo to housewife haven Lifetime. (TiFaux)
  • Ashley evaluated TV's best villains and you may be surprised who made the list. (Tube Talk.)

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.

Televisionary

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
