Question: I didn't hate October Road.

Answer: It's unanimous: Audiences aren't hating October Road! Sure, they're not loving it, but they're not hating it, either! (Wait till they see Episode 2.)

OK, my work is done here for now, so let's cut to the housekeeping notes: Head on over to the Ask Ausiello Discussion Thread to debate the merits of this week's AA, check out the latest installment of my Ausiello Report vodcast, send questions/tips/cash to ask_ausiello@tvguide.com, and keep close tabs on the Ausiello Report throughout the week for breaking tube news, blind items and other stuff. Then come back here next week and we'll do it all again. I promise!
