Today was the second CBS day. It began with Jericho. For those of you who don’t know, Jericho was canceled last spring. Fans were so upset that they began a whole campaign. Three weeks later CBS renewed the show for seven more episodes. Skeet Ulrich, Lennie James and Ashley Scott talked about how cool it was to be so beloved, and what they planned to do with the show. And exec producer Carol Barbee gave some insights into where the show will be going. I watched the first season finale last night, and it’s a really powerful show. I’ll be buying the DVD to watch that first season.
Mark Burnett was here for Survivor China. But one of my favorites of the day was Drew Carey with Power of 10. It’s a new game show, and though I’m not a very big fan of the genre, I really liked this one. It measures what America things about different topics and the contestants have to guess what percentage of Americans think a certain way. It’s so incredibly interesting, and scary at the same time when you see some of the answers. The Gang from Viva Laughlin was here. That’s the new series with Hugh Jackman, Lloyd Owen, DB Woodside and Madchen Amick where everyone sings. A rip on Viva Blackpool from the BBC.
The CBS Party tonight was pretty cool. I talked with the vampire guy, Alex O’Loughlin from “Moonlight.” He has a great accent. I ran into my new crush Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory, and I told him I was crushing on him. He’s SO SWEET. Exactly what you would think he would be when you watch him on the show. Jimmy Smits had some really interesting things to say about his new show. He’s so cute too. And I talked to a couple of other people but my brains so tired, I can’t remember. :-) They had fried candy bars, dippin dots, donuts. And tons of other bad stuff. I was actually good. I had strawberries with whip cream. I didn’t want to fall into a diabetic coma in front of Jimmy Smits. :-)
So today I want to know… Would you want to be really smart with a great job? Or incredibly beautiful, and rich but stupid? I know there are lots of pretty smart people, but this time you have to choose.
