I was very upset this week to learn that "Almost Human" was canceled. Sign the petition!

As usual, this week I enjoyed "Once Upon a Time", "Mad Men", "The Mentalist", "Family Guy", "Castle", "NCIS", "CSI", "Big Bang Theory", "Two and a Half Men", "Supernatural" and "Unforgettable"! Everything else I'm behind on.

I thought "Two and a Half Men" was pretty cute and very funny. Sad that they killed off Professor Proton on BBT, but it was a great "Star Wars" episode. I loved seeing Stephen Martines on "Supernatural" but I don't really enjoy those back door pilot episodes too much. "Unforgettable" was a great "Die Hard" episode. That show just keeps getting better and better!

I didn't like the backdoor pilot on "CSI", either, but I loved seeing Patricia Arquette! I still really miss "Medium".

Don't forget to watch the premiere of "24: Live Another Day" tomorrow night. Read my review of it and other shows.

April 30 I got to interview Colin Hanks in a conference call, so that was exciting! He seems really great.  I was in the conference for Kiefer Sutherland the day after that, but as often happens, they had too many people and not enough time, so I didn't get to speak with him. I enjoyed speaking to him on the phone, though. He seemed like a genuinely nice person. This is the second time, by the way, that I've gotten to listen to him but not actually ask a question. I hope the third time's the charm!  Friday I was invited to a call with James Spader, but unfortunately, it was canceled. Sometimes the production schedule gets in the way of these calls.

Don't forget that actors are just people like you and me. Sure, some of them are very rich and famous, but they're still just people. You and I may get divorced, or get drunk, or get arrested, or have problems with our boss at work, but nobody cares if we do. If celebrities do these things, everyone knows. Also, people make up stuff about them all of the time, so don't believe everything you read. And lastly, they also have people who follow them around all of the time and try to push them into a fight, or buy them drinks, or give them drugs, etc.  You and I don't have to contend with these awful fans as well as the news media and the liars.  I never believe anything I read about actors unless the actor has admitted to it.  Even then, you just don't know the whole story.  I'm not saying you should feel sorry for them or anything.   They are very lucky people who get paid a lot (although they also work very hard).  Just don't believe all of the gossip. Heck, even though I speak with them a lot on the phone, I don't know them and can only guess what they're really like. They are, however, just people, like you and me. :)

This week's news page!   Don't forget to also visit our Primetime Forum because Danielle and I post lots of news and other stuff on there!

I'm very happy that NBC will now invite me to press calls. Now if only ABC, CBS and the CW would do the same! I got turned down this week by the CBS guy who handles "Young & The Restless". I have no idea why. "Bold & Beautiful", which is owned separately, did not turn me down. Go figure! Thank goodness for FOX, NBC, and all of the cable networks.

You can see all of the interviews, but check back because  I have some more to put up this week...

Sad to hear that James Scott is leaving "Days of Our Lives". I wonder if that means that EJ and Sami will leave town together? I hope so!

I was excited, however, to learn that Michelle Stafford is on "General Hospital" now. I have some suggestions as to who can play Phyllis on Y&R. There are tons of great out of work soap actresses that could handle the role. I'm sure I'm missing some, but here's a short list:  Sarah Brown, Tamara Braun, Alicia Minshew, Kelly Menigham-Hensley, Colleen Dion, Lesli Kay, Julie Pinson, Terri Garber, Terri Conn, Crystal Chappell, Robin Christopher, Brianna Brown, Cynthia Preston, or Gina Tognoni...

This week I caught up on episodes of "The 100", which is a good scifi show. They have a great cast and good suspense. It's a bit like "Lost" but without quite so much pretension.

My husband and I used to love to watch Dave Atell's show "Insomniac" on Comedy Central. We tried his new comedy show and were very disappointed. So sad... it was not funny at all. It was nice to see him in an upcoming episode of "Louie", though.

If you can watch two shows on Monday, make sure to watch "Louie" which premiers on FX, too, besides "24"!

Otherwise I've just been spending this week catching up on bit on "General Hospital" (just a few weeks behind!) and "Young and the Restless" (I'm finally in February episodes!).

We need some new people to write "General Hospital" and "Bold & Beautiful" updates so please email me if you can do even one day per week!

I'm trying to use this site to get more help for some things that need doing on our site...not sure yet if I figured it out right, so I'm waiting to hear back from Amazon.

Have a great week and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
