Just read in Emily Bergl's Men in Trees Blog that it's been picked up for a full season.  I'm no longer holding out much hope for Six Degrees or The Nine, no matter how much I'm enjoying them.  But I will be heartbroken if NBC doesn't order a full season of Friday Night Lights.

Blog - Keep Reading: "There's only one thing to say to all those recent rumors of the cancellation of Studio 60: Pttthhhhhht (or however you might write the sound of a tongue sticking out).Reliable sources close to NBC tell me the ratings-challenged (but fan-adored) Studio 60 has received a 'back nine' order, meaning the series will complete a full 22 episodes for its freshman season. I'm told that NBC prez Kevin Reilly is standing behind Studio and keeping it in its Monday-night time slot for the time being, in hopes that the show's audience might grow."

ABC transplants "Trees" to Thursdays - Yahoo! News: "LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - ABC is transplanting its
new Anne Heche drama 'Men in Trees' to Thursday from Friday,
effective November 30.

The show will air in the 10 p.m. slot, following 'Grey's
Anatomy.' Freshman drama 'Six Degrees,' which failed to gain
traction in that period, has been pulled off the schedule and
is set to return with new episodes in January."

I know I've raved about Jamie S. Rich's work in the past.  I just finished his latest graphic novel, 12 Reason Why I Love Her, and I'm every bit the fan I was before.
I just finished reading James Owen's Here There Be Dragons, and am very excited to read his plans for 2007 here.  More on this later.
Weekly World News - Story: "Weekly World News has always supported alternative candidates, including extraterrestrials, mutants, and dolphins. However, we believe that Hillary Clinton deserves reelection to the Senate over Nocturnal Party candidate Dracula.

Beyond the logistics of having a vampire in Congress -- he would miss every vote cast between dawn and sunset, and the intern mortality rate would rise --Dracula's mesmeric powers would make a mockery of the democratic process. While one could argue that this has already happened over the past seven years, there is a difference between bleeding people for oil and bleeding them period."
For folks looking for a last-minute opportunity to try to change things for the better in this country,'s Call for Change campaign is looking for more phone volunteers for a last-minute effort.  For more information, click on the graphic below.  (But, at the very least, get out and vote if you haven't already done so.)

I found myself distracted from otherwise excellent episodes of Robin Hood and Torchwood by these thoughts (Spoilers, obviously):

Okay, so when Guy of Gisbourne confronts Marion in her guise as the Night Watchman, how does he fail to notice that she's a woman? I mean, it would probably have been unusual for a woman to take up arms in that day and age, but wouldn't it also have been unusual for a man to have such large breasts? Perhaps the Night Watchman costume was meant to be more loose-fitting and ambiguous, but it wasn't. Which makes it fairly pointless for Gisbourne to claim that he'll be able to track down the true identity of the Watchman, because Gisbourne wounded "him" on his wrist, so he only has to look for someone with a wounded wrist at the archery contest set up to lure Robin Hood. A wounded wrist, or unnaturally large man-boobs, I suppose...

And since when do Cybermen wear high heels?
