Before you watch Scrubs' big premiere tonight, you have to check out the interview I did with Zach Braff during my set visit earlier this month. In addition to some semi-spoilery bits about the new season and Zach's next big-screen venture, you'll be treated to a first look at the outfit I was wearing in my big scene. (You'll also get a first listen at my two lines of dialogue!) The clip is now playing on my main TVGuide.com page.

On a more serious note, I want to take a moment to thank everyone for all the support and concern you've shown me and my family these past few days. For those who don't know, my grandmother passed away rather suddenly last Friday. And yes, this is the same grandmother who over the years became something of a recurring character in Ask Ausiello. She also made a memorable cameo at my Barnes & Noble book signing last fall. Her fashionably late arrival was captured on the "live" podcast we did that evening. The woman sure knew how to make an entrance - and I loved her for it. (And you know I'm not a big fan of that whole spotlight-sharing thing.)

Thanks again for all the e-love. It's brought me more comfort than you'll ever know.
