Days Three and Four of Press Tour


NBC and its cable partners took over the last two days. The first day began with the lovely Betty White and her new series Betty White's Off Their Rockers. She is an inspiration. She has Hot in Cleveland, the new reality series and her book. "I'm the luckiest old broad on two feet, I promise you, and I don't take it for granted one single minute," says White. 

Next up was Fashion Star with Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson, Elle Macpherson and John Varatos. Two things that stood out for me. Nicole Richie needs to eat a hamburger, and there were lots of pretty shoes. Josh Lucas, Juliette Lewis, Molly Parker and Callum Keith Rennie were here for the new NBC s The Firm. Josh is pretty to look at, so this is one law show I might watch. I am not a fan of Are You There, Chelsea? At all. I'm a fan of Laura Prepon, who plays Chelsea, but even she can't save this awful show. On the other hand Bent with Amanda Peet and David Walton has promise. Cute chemistry between those two, and several fun secondary characters. 

I've made no secret of my love for Smash. Anjelica Huston, Debra Messing, Jack Davenport, Katharine McPee and Megan Hilty star in this Broadway behind-the-scenes drama. Viewers have a chance to see what it takes to get a musical to Broadway. Amazing music and dance numbers, along with some great drama and comedy. Love, love love this show! 

Awake is a show that I like a great deal, but I'm not sure the general audience is going to get it. Jason Issacs plays a guy who lives in two different realities and he can't tell which is the dream and which is real. His wife and son are killed in a car crash, and his wife is alive in one world and his son in another. I cannot wait to see where this show goes, but it's one where you really have to pay attention. Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton were here for The Voice. Out of all the singing competitions, this one is a favorite. But there is one of the coaches who sets my nerves on edge. This person makes the show difficult for me to watch sometimes. 

Day two of NBC Universal began with Morning Joe from MSNBC. People got so caught up in talking about politics that no one really asked about the show, which seemed to offend one of the panelists. Bravo brought out Jeff Lewis and Jenni Poulos for their show Interior Therapy. I have a difficult time watching Jeff. He's so insincere that I just can't take it. But I do appreciate his design aesthetic. Bethenny Frankel was up for Bethenny Ever After. The show seems to be more about the problems with her marriage than anything else. I have enough of that crap at home. And again, like Jeff, she's is so insincere. They call it reality, maybe it is. but it's reality about people who aren't very likable or endearing. For those shows to work, you need to care. And I don't. However, I do enjoy Andy Cohen the host of Watch What Happens: Live, which is expanding to a daily show. He's one funny dude. And hello! A Ralph Fiennes pajama party? I'm in. 

I was surprised by how entertained I was by Syfy's new reality show Total Blackout. Contestants must compete in complete darkness. They did a live demonstrations with one of our TCA members and some of the actors here at the hotel. I laughed so hard I cried. Good stuff. The afternoon ended with a lunch from E! with Chelsea Handler, Joan Rivers, Melissa Rivers, Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic, George Kotsiopoulos, Heather McDonald, Ross Mathews, Brad Wollack and Sarah Colonna. Um, yep. I took my lunch and left. I'll leave it at that. 

Later that night we had a reception with the Directors Guild. I got some great stuff from the directors and producers from Grimm, Supernatural, Secret Circle and a couple of other series. Love talking to those guys.
