New TV Tonight!

The last pre-strike "Ugly Betty" episode airs tonight @ 8PM. As much as I'll miss the Mode crew, there's something I'll miss a bit more -- the official Ugly Betty podcast with the fabulous duo of Michael Urie and Becki Newton! Three words: Pure comedy gold!

What will I do without my weekly dose of the 'blink blink' song and show 'call ins?'

In the new episode "A Thousand Words by Friday," Betty (America Ferrera) is excited about an assignment to interview writer Phil Roth. Unfortunately, this guy isn't Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Philip Roth but some dude who writes books about picking up women. Daniel (Eric Mabius) learns a shocking secret about a new lust interest (Gabrielle Union). Rocker Gene Simmons also guest stars. (Zap2it)

We also get a "Chuck" two-fer at 8 PM and 10 PM (sandwiched in between is, ugh "Celebrity" Apprentice).

I love both of these shows, so while it's nice to have new eps, it's also incredibly depressing that we have no clue how long it will be til we see them again! Frickin strike.

On a more serious note, if you haven't already read this, head over to Michael Ausiello's blog and check out his wonderful post: "
Grieving Heath Ledger via Ennis Del Mar"
It had me in tears. Have your hankies ready!



Complete and Utter Shock

Unbelievable shock is the general feeling at the moment.

Heath Ledger is dead at the young age of 28.
