TV Newsy Bits - Tonight's 'Survivor 15: China' - Thursday, Oct. 18, 2007

This is a photo I took a while ago, but some folks said it passed by too quickly in the video in which I used it. If you click on it, it should enlarge. I took it on a very narrow side street in Chinatown, Manhattan.

As per my usual practice, I'll be posting an East Coast Update post for tonight's Survivor: China shortly after the show starts here in the NYC area. Folks are welcome to drop by and visit in the comments once I get the post up. It looks like a good show tonight! My full review of the episode will be posted on TV Squad later this evening, but the important events will be updated almost live right here. So, stop on back!

In other TV Newsy Bits:
  • You can check out my latest review of Kid Nation on TV Squad. (I swear one of these days when I typo it as TV Squid, I'm going to leave it be!)
  • Sigh ... Joey Bishop died. When I was younger, I used to like to stay up late watch his show in which Regis looked like the kid he was at the time. Joey Bishop had been the last living member of the Rat Pack. Another era gone by.
  • Entertainment Weekly (on the stands tomorrow) will have an interview with American Idol Carrie Underwood. You can check out the interview at their sister site
  • Court TV's series Murder by the Book will be returning with an all new group of authers on Monday, November 5, 10 PM in most time zones. The latest authors set for this second season are: Joseph Wambaugh (an old favorite police procedural author of mine), Sandra Brown, David Balducci (yes!), Harlan Coben (yes!), Lee Child, Lisa Gardner, Linda Fairstein, Nick Santora, and Linda Gage. Authors returning from last year are Lisa Scottoline, Faye Kellerman, and Jonathan Kellerman. I enjoy this series a lot as I'm a mystery buff in my reading habits. The authors each examine a case for their episodes.
  • For any House fans out there, Buddy TV has an exclusive interview with Omar Epps and Jennifer Morrison.
Don't even THINK of parking here, but come on back to talk about tonight's Survivor!

Today's music non-sequitur --
"I know all too well the world takes a daily beating,
Please don't talk about murder while I'm eating."

BTW: Your mention of Joey Bishop's death; I hadn't heard about that until it was mentioned in your post. I remember watching that late night show too.
As you said, another era gone by. And what an era it was! Suddenly I feel so old.

I love reading Linda Fairstein's books because of their modern day Manhattan setting and for the historical background - as well as the darn good plots. Just finished reading her book Entombed with many details about Poe and the 250 acre Botanical Garden in the Bronx.
