Hey, party people. I had a free moment to catch up on all your comments on the upfront items and saw you had lots (and lots) of questions. I gathered up as many as I could find, and I'm answering them all in one place: right here. Click in for info about the yeas and nays on your fave series, some red carpet scoop and most importantly, the whereabouts of the Heroes.


Jords: Is there any chance of Moonlight being a midseason replacement option?
There is no chance of Moonlight being a midseason replacement on CBS, but according to Nikki Finke, there's a chance the CW (which is co-owned by the WB and which produces Moonlight) could schedule it on Saturday night. Update 5:37 p.m. EST: Nikki is now reporting that CW has chosen not to pick up Moonlight.

Cassandra: What about Cane?
Cane will not be coming back to CBS. The good news is that this frees up Nestor Carbonell to appear more frequently on Lost as Richard Alpert.

Christy: When you said What About Christine, did you mean The New Adventures of Old Christine?
Er, yes. Sorry. BTW, I'm hoping to bring you guys more "What About Christine" scoop next year. I saw the show runner, Kari Lizer, speak at an event and then watched a bunch of eps. It's totally cute and funny! I am in.

Bodiddly: Wonderful news for Veronica Mars fans about the pickup of The Ex List, as it means Diane Ruggiero, who wrote so many of the best Veronica scripts, is back with a new series, starring Elizabeth Reaser. I urge all of you to rent Sweetland so you can fall in love with Elizabeth.
I completely agree on all fronts: Diane Ruggiero, Elizabeth Reaser, Veronica Mars and Sweetland are all awesome. Actually, Sweetland is one of my favorite movies of the last few years: I refuse to delete the recording of it from my TiVo list. I should just get the DVD, of course, but suffice it to say, Sweetland is worth your time and money. Check it out!

Adrian Pasdar, Heroes

NBC/Adam Taylor


Elodie: Could you please post the Heroes interviews?
I'm working on getting you all of the juicy interviews from all of the carpets, but there's only so much time in the day. Our online video team is working as fast as they can, so they won't all be up right away. Heroes looks to be coming next week, but we'll get you as much as we can as fast as we can. Promise.

Jessica: What about Lipstick Jungle?
Lipstick Jungle is coming back next season. Brooke Shields, Lindsay Price and Kim Raver were all at the NBC party in support of the show. Actually, Brooke Shields busted her foot or something; the poor thing was forced to hobble around the NBC upfront red carpet on crutches. What a trouper!

Kristin Chenoweth, Pushing Daisies



Lisa: You're killing me here. Please confirm Pushing Daisies is a sure thing for next season!
Pushing Daisies is a sure thing for next season. Lee Pace was even featured in the ABC promo vid shown at the morning press conference. He was saying, "I've fallen in love with Anna Friel," and how that's a good thing because they can't touch on the series, so they really have to sell the love through their eyes. Awww...

Mad: Kristin, tell Steve McPherson that 10 p.m. is too late for Lost. 9 p.m. is better. Put one of the new shows they're going to cancel halfway through at 10 p.m. instead.
Steve McPherson, please see Mad's comments above in regard to the scheduling of your television program Lost.

Bubba: Will Dr. Kelso be returning to Sacred Heart Hospital next year when Scrubs moves to ABC?
Word on the street is that Kelso will be appearing now and again while on his retirement at home, but that they will bring in a new chief to run the Scrubs hospital.

Dina: What about the hilarious Miss/Guided?
There was some hope late last week that Miss/Guided would be picked up for a second season, but that hope seems to have been snuffed out.

Anonymous: Am I the only one wondering about Cashmere Mafia?
You are not the only one. I was wondering about the fate of Cashmere Mafia myself, but it is gone for good. Steve McPherson confirmed that Lucy Liu will be moving over to Dirty Sexy Money, and I saw Bonnie Somerville at last night's EW party, and she didn't express any hope that CM could be coming back. Man, that girl is in all the best one-season shows: Grosse Pointe, Kitchen Confidential, Cashmere Mafia, etc.

Marcia: What about Private Practice? Is it coming back in the fall? Any news on that show?
Yes, Private Practice will be back in the fall. They are already working on new scripts, they just hired two new show runners and David Sutcliffe is confirmed for 11 episodes as Addy's paramedic love interest.

Andrea: What about Women's Murder Club?
Gone. Sorry.

Kim: What about New Amsterdam?
We won't know for sure until Thursday, but all signs point to cancellation.

Marceline: Any word on Fox's Canterbury's Law? Has it been officially canceled?
Again, nothing official until Thursday, but I wouldn't recommend holding your breath even that long: A castmember told me last night that Canterbury's Law is gone for sure. Sorry.

Gomtuu: Does "midseason two-parter, namely episodes seven and eight" mean Fox ordered six more episodes of Dollhouse?
According to Joss Whedon, Fox has ordered 13 episodes of Dollhouse.

Anonymous: The fact that Jen has never watched Arrested Development and that she writes about TV is for sure a crime against humanity.
Agreed. I am prosecuting her before the TV Truth and Reconciliation Commission today and expect a conviction.

Johnny: Where is the CW scoop?
Stand by for video from yesterday's green carpet and lots of Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill dish in the next Watch With Kristin Show. In the meantime, I can tell you that those casts are awesome, all of them, and I'm pretty sure something big and shocking is happening at the end of this season on One Tree Hill with Dan. Also, did you know Lee Norris (Mouth on OTH) and Stephen Colletti are shacking up? As roomies, of course, but Lee says Stephen is a close friend and the real deal. As for Gossip Girl, I'm pretty sure Georgina will get hers in the finale, and FYI, Blake says the rumors of her fighting with Leighton are 100 percent not true. Stand by for more on that.

Sophie: What about Top Model?
Fatima looked so subdued and sorta sad on the carpet. She either was having an off day or isn't the big winner. Whitney is just as polished and bubbly in real life as she is on the show (and she actually teared up talking about the first plus-size model to make it that far—good for her). And Anya? Well, yes, she really does talk like that! Sweet girl...unique accent. FYI, they've all kept their makeover looks except Fatima, who cut off her hair.

OK, that's all for now. Got more Q's? Post 'em in the comments below and I'll answer as soon as I can. Meanwhile, I'm off to CBS. Check back early and often for lots more news from the presentation stage and the arrivals line!
