All Up In The Upfronts: The Fall Shows We Are Pumped For, Part 4

Okay, fine, I'll admit it. I'm a little mad at The CW for canceling "Hellcats," the show starring Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale as competitive college cheerleaders that happened to be loosely based on my book, CHEER!. That said, I'm getting over it because they are bringing two of my favorites—Sarah Michelle Gellar and Rachel

All Up In The Upfronts: The Shows We’re Most Excited For, Part 3

Most networks want their own day for their upfront. But others don't need to be queen for a full 24 hours—thus, Wednesday has become a catch-all day for presentations, which is strange because Friday appears to be wide open. Not only did CBS announce their fall television lineups this morning—TBS and TNT took their turns,…

The Fine Art Of “The Office”

A genius promotional photo for NBC's "The Office" features Pam, Jim, and the gang channeling Georges Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

All Up In The Upfronts: The Fall TV Shows We’re Pumped For, Part 1

My dear readers, I have a confession to make: my name is Kate and I am a television addict. Even though my living room is less than 200 square feet, I have a 40-inch television.

And just like that, upfronts week is over. Yesterday, in addition to CBS's presentation, Conan O'Brien delivered the TBS and TNT fall lineups, which he will be a part of come Nov. 8. "I really believe in cable television,” he joked. “I do not want to live in a country with less than five ESPN…

All Up In The Upfronts: Why We Can’t Wait For “Hellcats”

In the upfront-iverse, this morning was CBS's turn to unveil their fall lineup. But because I'm feeling a smidge uninspired by it (sitcom, sitcom, police show, "Hawaii Five-O"), I'm moving on to an offering from The CW that is going to be pure genius. "Hellcats" is a series about a competitive college cheerleading squad starring…
