1. Early Ratings! its going to be a crowded scene on most nights and times this year and so I hope to follow along with the ratings news, at least when its interesting or compelling news. Last night's series premiere of Up All Night basically retained all of AGT's finale audience but Free Agents shed about 1/3 of UAN's audience; probably doesn't bode well for the comedy. I was delighted to see that no one watched H8R or ANTM. Also, from a couple of days ago; even though Ringer gave CW some of its best ratings in years, it wasn't stellar and will get killed in its time slot by CBS domination.
2. Season/Series Premieres Tonight. The CW continues its premiere week with the new season of Vampire Diaries and the series premiere of The Secret Circle. I know VD has developed a devoted following (I am not among them) but I am curious to see Secret Circle keeps the lead-in audience.
3. Reality Show Winners! Big Brother and America's Got Talent crowned their respective winners last night. Rachel Reilly took home $500K for subjecting herself to the humiliation of being interviewed by Julie Chen on BB13 and Eugene Murphy, Jr. won $1 million on AGT .. for sounding like Frank Sinatra (presumably Sr., not Jr.). Congrats to the winners .. I guess Summer is really over now, huh?
4. If you were one of the few people that watched the DC edition of Real Housewives, you'll be relieved to know that Michaele Salahi isn't dead, she just ran off with the guitarist from Journey. You don't appreciate the funny sentences you'll write until you start a blog.
5. I can't turn down a LOST shout out, I just can't. Alex Rousseau (I guess her real name is Tania Raymonde but I'll call her Alex) is doing an episode on Hawaii Five-O this season. It will be great to see her back among the jungles of Hawaii!
6. "Heeeeey". The Fonz (nee, Henry Winkler) has been made an honorary member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (I'm an American so to me this sounds like the name of Bill & Ted fan club) for his work as wacky guest stars and recurring characters on television, like in Arrested Development. Seriously, its for his work with dyslexic children. With news earlier this week of Ralph Malph getting cast as Emma Pilsbury's father on Glee this upcoming season, its been a pretty good week for Happy Days fans.
7. Legen - wait for it - dary!
