Lea Michele and Cory Monteith
Contrary to reports, Glee will in fact be heading to Comic-Con this July.
For the fourth year in a row, Gleeks will have the chance to attend a star-studded panel at the San Diego-based convention.
Cheers to Michael Ausiello for taking his always-entertaining show on the road to another magazine that shall remain nameless (but whose initials are EW). When I left there to come to TV Guide four-and-a-half years ago, Mike couldn't have been more welcoming, and it's been a pleasure working with him ever since. I wish him well but not too well toiling with my former colleagues across the proverbial street. I just hope they have room for all his Smurfs.

TV Guide has a new frenemy: Michael Ausiello is joining Entertainment Weekly, after eight fantastic years as our resident scooper. "Michael has been a great reporter and a great friend," says TVGuide.com editor-in-chief Christy Tanner. "We wish him the best, and promise that we wont miss a beat delivering all the great scoop youre used to on TVGuide.com."More on Ausiello's exit: Mike's heartfelt message to his fraktastic fans Mitovich shares "his take" on the news• Cheers & Jeers has Ausiello fever!
CSI's Warrick and NCIS' Jenny have nothing on this shocking exit. After eight years of breaking some of television's biggest news, Michael Ausiello is bidding TV Guide adieu. Now, I don't know how many of you (outside of my proud momma and sisters!) pay attention to magazine mastheads, but Mike and I actually first started working together back in 1998, when I trolled the sets of As the World Turns and One Life to Live for "scoop" at Soaps in Depth. (Rule No. 1: No news tidbit about Roger Howarth is too trivial!)I'm excited for Mike and his new opportunity. I hate him for leaving, oh yes I do, but I am also excited for him. And if you wonder why my eyes are red in the video I'm shooting later with David Cook (plug, plug, Ausiello-style), it's because of this news. But I guess if you are going to gain a "frenemy," why not have it be one of your best friends, right?More on Ausiello's exit: Today's News: Ausiello Exit Shocker!

The great philosopher Sheryl Crow once said sang, "A change will do you good." And I sure hope she knew what she was talking about, because I'm standing on the precipice of a doozy.After eight fraktastic years with TV Guide the best of my career I've made the toughest decision of my life: To move on to new challenges at Entertainment Weekly. No tears, please. (I'm sure Elisabeth Rohm has shed enough for all of us.) TVGuide.com and TV Guide magazine will be fine without me. Great, in fact. I'm leaving behind so many voracious scoophounds that you may not even realize I'm gone. (Plus, the office's monthly diet Snapple bill is sure to go down substantially.)Before I go, though, I wanted to express my unsmurfing gratitude to you guys, for the hundred million things you've been moved to ask Ausiello. It's because of you and our shared obsession with the tube that I am lucky enough to do for a living what you can only wish you got to I love the most. Sincerely thanks ...

bitchier better than ever!

Answer: First person to correctly guess the horrible word Crawford called me wins a limited edition, stainless steel Ausiello Scoop! Send your guesses to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP!
Question: Hey, this is your superfan whose day you made complete at the National Stationery Show last Tuesday. It was so fun to meet you! I immediately called my best friend after I met you and her only response was "You bitch!" What can I say, we're Ausholes through-and-through.
Answer: Alright, the rumors are true: I was, in fact, at the National Stationery Show helping my partner launch his sensationally sassy new line of greeting cards, sticky pads and gift tags called Pretty Bitter. (Warning: It's stationery that pushes the envelope — aka, NSFW!) That sort of qualifies as a family emergency. I mean, if I hadn't gone I would have received the world's most personalized Dear John letter.
Question: Have you ever wondered why Smurfette is the only female Smurf?
Answer: Nah. Perhaps you haven't noticed, but I have better things to do with my life.

OK, that’s a wrap! Massive apologies again for leaving you guys in the lurch last week. I was honestly taken aback by the sheer intensity of the
hostility grief that resulted from my absence. Who knew? (Tee-hee.) Moving forward, I'll try and schedule my "family emergencies" during the off-season. Or not. Let's play it by ear, K?
