(No) Hurt Feelings: A Look Inside the Recording Studio with "Flight of the Conchords"

If you're at all like me, you've been singing "Sugalumps" since Jemaine first uttered those immortal lyrics this season on HBO's comedy Flight of the Conchords.

Thanks to the magic of the internets, you can go behind the scenes on Flight of the Conchords to see everyone's favorite Kiwis, Bret and Jemaine, lay down some tracks for their new album, due out April 14th.

One bit of difference between Season One and Season Two of Flight of the Conchords: the guys had previously written the songs used in the first season and created storylines around the songs; this year, they wrote the stories first and then wrote the music for such songs as "Hurt Feelings," "Sugalumps," "Angels," and others.

Oh, and you can now download the songs via iTunes the morning after they're featured on that Sunday's episode of Flight of the Conchords, so you'll never be without their latest hysterical hit. Find out more via HBO's The Buzz video below.



This Sunday on Flight of the Conchords ("Murray Takes it to the Next Level"), Murray tries to elevate Bret and Jemaine on his friendship graph, bringing his mate Jim in on the plan; Mel demands an apology from Bret for inappropriate dream behavior.

Fun! Thanks for the link to this, Jace. I appreciate any chance to see my two favorite Kiwis in action!

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
