My TV thoughts this week:
GREAT HIMYM, the man-date idea has been recycled so many times, but they did a hilarious job. Haven't seen this week's Heroes, but I hear good things. Again, I watched Studio 60, and I still don't like it, hope it gets cancelled soon. Veronica Mars was at its worst ever, the only redeeming factor was its Guitar Hero reference. Haven't seen this week's Lost, please don't spoil. Stopped watching Ugly Betty, sorry, just not doing it for me. Grey's was solid as usual. And the last five minutes of The Office were ridiculously cute. Random side note, my agent's assistant got married this weekend (congrats J!). At the wedding reception, my friend Amber, and my writing partner and I, got to talk to Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak of the Office (we all share the same agent, and yes, this is me gloating). They were very nice and down to earth, even politely pretending to laugh at my nervous "jokes". More power to them.
