After months of dodging questions about when they're getting married, Ugly Betty's Rebecca Romijn and Carpoolers' Jerry O'Connell faced a whole other set of inquiries at the ABC All-Star Party about how they finally decided what kind of a wedding they wanted."We almost went to City Hall a number of times, we almost eloped a number of times. Eventually we just decided we really wanted to have a party with our friends at home," says Romijn about their intimate wedding at their house in Calabasas on July 14.When asked if guests knew that they were attending a wedding, Romijn laughs, "First I said it was a retirement party for my parents; then we told people it was a special barbecue, and I think most people understood."Although O'Connell says life as a married man is much the same as before, he admitted to suffering a little bit from post-wedding depression. "I was a little sad after the wedding just because it was over. I wasn't like Brooke Shields sad, but I cleaned up the mess on Mo... read more

Live Press Tour Diary: ABC, Day 1

Harold Perrineau by Mario Perez/ABC

8:54 am: We're in the homestretch, folks, and that can only mean one thing: Critics have begun recycling their old underwear. That explains the wall of stank I just walked through entering the Beverly Hilton's ballroom.8:58 am: As we wait for ABC president Stephen McPherson to take the stage for the exec session, let me take a moment to extend a big thank-you to the generous folks at ABC Studios who had a case of Diet Raspberry Snapple shipped to my room yesterday afternoon. Just for that, I'm going to take it easy on Big Shots. I was planning to call it a charmless piece of fecal matter; now I'm merely calling it unwatchable. Behold the power of Snapple!EXECUTIVE SESSION9:10 am: The first question... does not include the words "Isaiah" or "Washington." Darn. 9:13 am: On Lost's game-changing season finale, McPherson says it really "opened up a new world" for the show, adding that Team Darlton "pitched us where they're going this year, and where they're going the next two years." He ... read more

ABC Gets Aggressive, with Familiar Faces, Campy Soaps and Cavemen?

Even with all the success ABC has had on Sunday and Thursday (thanks to the bold move of Grey's Anatomy to that night), there are plenty of other time periods throughout the week where the network simply wasn't competitive this past season. But while the struggling NBC cautiously put together a schedule that seemed designed to retain its diminished share of advertiser dollars, ABC is being much more aggressive. In the new lineup presented to advertisers Wednesday at Alice Tully Hall, entertainment president Stephen McPherson threw a lot of stuff against the scheduling board in the hope that something will stick.Determined to get back into the comedy game, ABC gave Sam I Am with Christina Applegate the benefit of a Dancing with the Stars lead-in on Monday. Not a bad bet, since ABC's appeal is strongest among women 35-plus — and Applegate is now one of them, believe it or not. Two new comedies with a male skew will lead off Tuesday, in an attempt to get some ratings traction by t... read more
