It’s no wonder we begin to feel a bit schizo while covering the new TV season. One minute the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders are performing in front of you, the next Salt n Pepa are talking about why they broke up and why they want to do a reality show together. In between there’s Donnie Wahlberg and John Leguizamo talking about their new show. Elvis’s friends telling stories about the past. Ty Murray and Vanilla Ice discussing the merits of bullriding. And Steven Van Zandt waxing poetic about Bruce Springsteen and David Chase (Creator of the Sopranos). By the way, Steven loved the way the Sopranos ended. He thought it was brilliant. The Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern hosted lunch. There were crickets and maggots in a box. I ate the chicken and I’m still having stomach troubles. :-) The Brits took over the afternoon. Steven Moffat, who writes Dr. Who, has a new series Jekyll. And Russell T. Davies, who also wrote the new Doctor Who, has another crazy series, Torchwood. Discovery Channel was here with Storm Chasers, Shark survivors and crazy Bear Gryllis with his Man vs. Wild show.
So you can see where at some point one’s brain might take a trip to the crazy side. I’m actually thinking about skipping the party at Garth Ancier’s house tonight to write. I know, I’m insane. But I have two more weeks of this stuff, and a girl needs her sanity.
What are you guys doing this weekend?
