OMG, did you see the new show None of the Above last night?

It was sooooo good. I can’t even believe that great new character the show just added also named None of the Above. I just hope it doesn’t get cancelled like that other show, None of the Above.

Yes, None of the Above did quite well in the 2008 Amy Awards. Not only did it win several categories, it was nearly named hottest actress. And it’s never even been featured in US Weekly. Bizarre, right?

The 2008 Amy Awards were very reflective of a disjointed TV season. Perhaps you didn’t have a favorite new show because you can’t even remember some of the shows that haven’t been seen since last fall.

Thanks to everyone who voted. This year we had nearly 7,300 unique votes. Whoo-hoo!

This concludes the 2008 Amy Awards. Thanks again for picking the categories, the nominees and the winners. As always, you guys are the best. I may be a little bit biased, but I think I have the best readers out there.

Now that you’ve seen the results of the 2008 Amy Awards, talk about it below.

Some fun links

Stevecarell_theoffice_240 The Office will have new webisodes available on beginning July 10 but here’s a sneak peak.

And leading up to the July 14th premiere, you can get recaps of Saving Grace here and The Closer here.

Highlights of the Week Ahead

All times listed are Eastern Standard Time for June 30-July 6

If you missed my review of The Secret Life of the American Teenager (Tuesday, ABC Family, 8 p.m.), check out my blog from last Friday.

Ah the Gizzie romance. Such good times. Not. If you want to relive one of the reasons why Grey’s Anatomy won the You Bring the Skis, I’ll Bring the Shark Award, check out this repeat Thursday at 9 p.m. on ABC.

Sterling K. Brown, Roland on Army Wives, guest starred as Gordon Walker this season on Supernatural (Thursday, CW, 9 p.m.). I missed it the first time around. I won’t make that same mistake again. Oh and as an added bonus, Mercedes McNab, Harmony on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, guest stars as — what else? – a vampire.

I think nothing beats the Boston Pops on the 4th of July. And this year Rascal Flatts performs with Keith Lockhart and The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra Friday at 10 p.m. on CBS.

That’s all for today. I’m back on Wednesday with this week’s familiar faces and to talk about the 2008 Emmy Awards. Have a question? Seen a familiar face? Want to nominate a quote of the week or a topic for discussion? Write me at
