Bookmarked: CW Widgets, FOX Shows Online, Moonlight Promos, and More   

Happy Hump Day!

Here’s a random question for all you bloggers out there… Which comes first for you: the subject/title of your post or the post itself?

I’ve been kind of slammed at work lately which is why my posting has been rather light of late and rarely covers all the latest and greatest TV info out there. I’m just too swamped to keep up with it all myself. So, for those of you out there like me, here’s a roundup of things I’ve bookmarked in the past week or so:

  • I shared the Reaper widget yesterday but they’ve actually a few different ones over at The CW website. You can get one for Smallville, Supernatural, Girlfriends, Everybody Hates Chris, and The Game.
  • As much as I rag on FOX, I have to give them credit for actually being on the ball and getting their shows out there. Though there are ways to see the other Fall pilots, FOX is the only network that has an official premiere out there for your previewing pleasure. Check out K-Ville online now. Plus, where other networks do have new promos out, FOX actually has the first 17 minutes of Prison Break’s Season 3 available online as well. I can’t decide if I think it’s great or a horrible way to tease me.
  • Dawson Does Ugly Betty? Oy. It’s wrong of me to pick on James Van Der Beek. I mean, it’s not his fault that I hated Dawson and I do love Rules of Attraction. Of course he plays a character you’re supposed to hate in that so that’s probably not exactly the compliment it could be. Still, I can’t help it. I can’t look at him and NOT see Dawson. Hopefully his role on Ugly Betty will be so far removed from The Creek that it won’t be an issue.
  • There are new promo photos for Moonlight out there and Ducky finally his thoughts about the show up as well. I think my new TV crush is Alex O‚ÄôLouglin. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Jason D. but Alex is very much more my type. Plus, I need to see Jason as Josef ASAP because his solo promo shots still aren’t thrilling me (show-wise, that is) but I do love the new group shot.
  • Who is surprised to see that WGA is taking advantage of the Kid Nationuproar to, once again, make a case for why reality shows should fall under their purview? Not me, that’s for sure. Quite frankly, as wrong as it is, this may be just the break the WGA needed to make its case. They just needed to wait for reality craze to send one network too far over the line. Now that it’s been crossed, they are free to point out that what’s coming out is nothing new in the arena of reality TV. (Sidenote: I just finished a great book, “Keep It Real,” by Bill Bryan. Totally fictional and, yet, I’m guessing it’s as close to non-fictional as you can get as a portrayal of what reality TV producing is really like. A review is forthcoming.)

Stopping now as that’s all I’ve got time for this break. More later as there’s absolutely nothing on my TV schedule for tonight.

    Rules of Attraction you can love for a completely different reasons, Rae.

    While I don’t care one way or another about The Beek, I do love watching people hate on him so much as time goes by.

    I will say nothing of the Jason pictures because I’m still a haze and nothing is going to bring me out of it.

    How did I miss ALL this info?? Thanks for sharing all the links.

    That Reaper widget totally cracks me up BTW!

    For me, the post itself comes first because I prefer the creative title over the obvious, and creative tends to take longer to come up with and the title is usually the very last thing I type for a given post. Granted I was lazy today and went with the overtly obvious Fall Music Preview.

    On a side note of networks not getting thie pilots out there, NBC is actually offering up three of their shows, Chuck, Journeyman, and Life for rent at Blockbuster. A sneak peek of Bionic Woman is also included on the DVD.

    I forgot to say that I generally do the title first when I post. It’s generally whatever running through my head that made me want to post in the first place. You can probably tell by the lack of wit and creativity in my titles. :)
