Question: Your "Top 5 television couples" answer got me thinking. I know you like Gilmore Girls, so who do you think Rory was best with: Jess, Dean, or this new blond boy, Logan? Sara
Ausiello: I know this isn't gonna win me any new fans, but I kinda-sorta liked her with Jess. That said, I think this new Logan dude has tremendous potential. BTW, how great was last night's episode? Not only did Rory name-drop Spike and Drusilla (my seventh favorite TV couple of all time), but that whole speed-dating thing featured Paris at her wittiest, bitchiest best. My favorite line of the night was when Paris, having just been caught shagging Doyle, told Rory, "You have no right to be repulsed by my sex life." I nearly spit up my peanut butter Fro-Yo.
Question: Yes, Mike, that tidbit of a scoop you gave me about Joey will suffice for now ("Ask Ausiello" 11/24), but you have got to admit that something has to be done to make that show more watchable. Any suggestions? Chase
Ausiello: Aside from a new writing team and more Jennifer Coolidge? Not really. Although, I'm looking forward to catching Lucy Liu as his boss later this month. Click here for more on that.
Question: I enjoy "Ask Ausiello" very much, and have read your "Entertainment News" column since its inception. I host a radio show for WDUN in Gainesville, GA. I was hoping that you would consent to a brief, 10-minute interview sometime next month that could be prerecorded at your convenience. I promise not to bash the Smurfs or Keri Russell. Bill Wilson
Ausiello: Just checking, Bill is this a paying gig? My agent is asking.
Question: When will Roseanne come out on DVD? I need my white trash fix. BTW, am I the only one who liked the episodes when they were rich? I mean, come on they got to meet Patsy and Edina! Roseanne
Ausiello: Well, I'm sure you're not the only person named Roseanne who liked those episodes. And regarding the DVD, I'm hearing that the first season will likely be out in late 2005.
Question: Hi, I'm fat, too! How fat were you? Greg
Ausiello: Yippee! I was 250 lbs. at my heaviest, which was my senior year of high school.
Question: You are like a puppy. Very cute and entertaining till it poops in the living room. Sam
Ausiello: Thanks, Sam. That was the nicest e-mail I've received all week.
Question: Got any scoop on the new season of American Idol? Charlie
Ausiello: I hear the Wednesday results show will be an hour long this season instead of just 30 minutes. Oh, and the producers can't stand Fox. And vice versa.
Question: I just got back from seeing Keri Russell's new play Fat Pig. Did you make it to Friday's show? And if so, what did you think? Christine
Ausiello: Yes, I certainly did make it and I have to admit, I got chills when she first stepped out on stage. I mean, it's been nearly three years since I've seen her in anything and I had no idea what to expect. Well, not only did she look stunning, but she acted her freakin' ass off in a role that was about as far from Felicity as you could get. Essentially, her character a foul-mouthed, superficial, judgmental accountant disapproves of her ex-boyfriend's (Entourage's Jeremy Piven) decision to date a "generously proportioned" girl. She has some great scenes with Piven, including one in which she literally shoves him halfway across his office, over a swivel chair and onto the floor. The play itself, like most of Ne
Question: You are blocking out my ability to view program listings. Steve
Ausiello: Enough with the fat jokes, people. I'm skinny now!
Question: Have you noticed that Felicity Huffman's character on Desperate Housewives wears that three-strand necklace in every scene she is in? Regardless if she's wearing sweats or a cocktail dress? Is this the result of a really lazy stylist or do you think it will be part of a story line to come? Lauren
Ausiello: Yes, I've noticed this, too! I have a feeling it's just a personal choice made by Ms. Huffman. I have a call in to the show to make sure, though. Stay tuned...
