Tonight's cuppa: coffee at home, at last
Where've I been? Well, if you followed me on Twitter, you'd know I've been at the biannual Television Critics Association Press Tour, at the beautiful — and it really is — Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif. I was in residence for the week, representing my company at the cable-TV portion of tour.
My colleagues start to filter in tomorrow, so I'm sleeping in my own bed tonight, but will be in and out of the PBS portion of tour — this weekend — and the broadcast-network portion, which continues next week. Twitter's probably the best way to keep up with the festivities, but when I have time to come up for air, I'll try to drop in a few blog posts as well.
But I did carve out time on Thursday to make my regular appearance on Shaun Daily's TV Talk Show on blogtalkradio.com. Click here for the MP3 version of my rendition of the tour thus far, while dealing with the Huntington's somewhat spotty cell reception.
And just because I like ya, below find today's tweets from our group set visits to CBS' new"Three Rivers" and "NCIS: Los Angeles," and Fox's "Bones" and "Dollhouse," all preceded by a select-group luncheon with "Rivers" star (and former "Moonlight" star) Alex O'Loughlin. (Read from the bottom up):
BTW, the NCIS-LA set is supposed to be a converted mission. Wonderful details,down to bits of moss in the mortar between concrete blocks.
Watching Verminators. Not sure if I like the idea that the IsoTech guys are in Florida. Who's watching the rat traps in my office garage.
BTW, outside the Dollhouse set, there were pieces of a disassembled set labeled "Sexy Changing Room." Nope, I have no idea what that means.
BTW, at the end of the Bones session today, Emily Deschanel said she went to high school with Joss Whedon's brothers.Interesting, if freaky.
Had a brief, pleasant chat with Dollhouse star Harry Lennix. The man rocks a tan plaid sport jacket over a buff-colored T-shirt. Swank!
Not much new Dollhouse scoops, but Joss Whedon said that the show's DVR numbers and future DVD/download potential helped it come back.
