Question: Could you get some inside news on Muppets' Wonderful Wizard of Oz? We all know who is starring in it, but what's it about? When will it air? Are there any publicity photos yet? Come on, pull some strings for me, will ya? Dan
Ausiello: Great news: Piggy helped me secure an exclusive first look at Muppets' Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It'll run in my "TV News" column in TV Guide magazine in a few weeks, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, I can tell you that the movie is a retelling of The Wizard of Oz from a uniquely Muppet perspective. According to my spies on the set, Piggy gives a career-defining performance as all four witches Wicked Witch of the East, Wicked Witch of the West, the Good Witch of the North and Glinda, the Good Witch of the South. As one insider put it, "If moi, um, Miss Piggy, doesn't win an Emmy for this thing, someone's gonna pay!"
Question: Will you be getting a big fat raise for this amazing new column of yours? Pam Ausiello
Ausiello: What a coincidence my sister-in-law's name is Pam Ausiello, too! To answer your question, I don't do this for the money, Pam. I do it for the fans. Folks like Anita Cashinfusion, Ivana Biggerpaycheck, I.M. Whoreforgreen... and the list goes on.

Question: Dude, I just wanted to see my name in here. If you know any hot chicks, send 'em my e-mail! Jason
Ausiello: I forwarded your e-mail address on to a certain blond bombshell in Vancouver. If I were you, I'd stay close to my Blackberry.
Question: So how does someone get to go out on a date with you? Larry
Ausiello: Well, first off, Larry, they need to e-mail me their photo so I can notify security downstairs that they might be dropping by. Then it's off to Stalker Alert for a quick drink.
Question: I've noticed that Hawaii is not listed either this week or next on NBC. Have they canceled it already? Christie
