I can’t believe you were in New York this weekend and didn’t let me know. I would have loved the opportunity to talk TV in person. — TVStalker32
The TV Addict: As much as I appreciate the email TVStalker32, I’ve seen enough episodes of ONE TREE HILL this season to know how this story ends. With me tied up in your basement forced to watch the complete series of 7th HEAVEN on repeat!
But in all seriousness, this TV Addict would really like to take a moment to thank everyone who emailed me this weekend with an invitation out. Had I known readers were actually interested in meeting face-to-face, I would have definitely taken time away from my endless
cultural and educational museum excursions JACK & BOBBY marathon to have a meet-up in New York City.
Did you really stay in the hotel and watch JACK & BOBBY on theWB.com all weekend long? — Amy
The TV Addict: If by all weekend long, you mean Sunday morning, then yes. But can you blame me? JACK & BOBBY is even better than I remember. And if a mash-up of EVERWOOD and THE WEST WING isn’t enough to intice you to give this brilliant-but-cancelled series a chance, how does this list of guest stars sound: Bradley Coooper, Evan Handler, David Paymer, Ron Canada, Keri Lynn Pratt, Kate Mara, John Heard, Kyle Gallner, Shailene Woodley and Mike Erwin. Not to mention series regulars Christine Lahti, John Slattery, Logan Lerman, Jessica Paré and Matt Long. All of whom can be seen on theWB.com. Seriously, JACK & BOBBY is the very definition of brilliant-but-cancelled.
This probably doesn’t fall under the prevue of theTVAddict.com, but what exactly did you do in New York all weekend? — Jenn
The TV Addict: Two words: Broadway and Brunch [well really food, but B&B sounds so much better]. But rest assured, I can tie it all back to television. Not only was BILLY ELLIOT the most magical theater experience I’ve had since Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Menzel defied gravity [WICKED], Broadway’s BILLY will very soon play a pivotal role in an upcoming episode of UGLY BETTY when Justin befriends the school jock only to discover that they’re both auditioning for a role in the soon-to-be Tony Award winning musical.
After Monday’s episode of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER is it safe to asume that Stella is not the mother? — Tegan
The TV Addict: While Stella may not be around in 2009, she looks to be the mother at least for a brief period of time. See these spoileriffic photos from next week’s episode. And yes, I know what you’re thinking, that is why I get paid the big bucks. Investigative journalism at its finest!
Dear TV Addict, I so XoXo’d Monday’s episode of GOSSIP GIRL. Got any scoop? — XoXo Mandi
The TV Addict: Dear Mandi, I’m totally with you. Monday’s trip to
Columbia University Yale University was so much fun that the only thing that was missing, as Zap2it’s Daniel Fienberg so brilliantly put it, was Rory Gilmore as tour guide. That said, expect things to get ever more scandalous for our favorite Upper East Siders on October 27 when THE OC’s Willa Holland drops by as a young model who encourages “Little J” to explore her wild side and Serena meets artist/love interest Aaron Rose.
Please tell me that Kevin Walker doesn’t really go back into the closet for the sake of a promotion? — Jake
The TV Addict: You’ll be happy to know that by Sunday, Kevin Walker will be offered a very interesting new job that will bring him back into the family business. But keep in mind, my fellow BROTHERS & SISTERS Addicts. There is more than one family business when you’re talking Walker.
Any celebrity sightings in New York? — Dave
The TV Addict: Does being told I ate in the same restaurant [5 Napkin Burger, which I wholeheartedly recommend by the way] that Lauren Graham ate in the day before count? If so, then yes.
I’m in love with PRIVILEGED, got any scoop? — SageNRose4vr
The TV Addict: I’m so happy you’re in love with PRIVILEGED and would love to give you some scoop. But before I do — if you don’t mind — go tell one million or so of your friends to tune in, as the show could really use a ratings bump. Done? Here it goes. In two weeks time, fans will finally meet Megan’s much talked about father played by 24’s John Allen Nelson. And for more PRIVILEGED scoop, head on over to Zap2it.com’s Korbi who has a great interview with executive producer Rina Mimoun.
