Question: Liev Schreiber is the "big name" actor replacing William Petersen on CSI? Puh-lease! Didn't anyone ever tell you there's nothing worse than overhyped poop?

Answer: That's fair. I'll be the first to admit that I tend to get a little overzealous with my prattle. To show you that I've learned my lesson, I'm going to take the low-key approach in touting next week's 100th Ask Ausiello and simply say that Nov. 8 is going to be the most important day in your entire lives. Trust me when I say you do not want to miss next Wednesday's AA. In addition to exclusive, earth-shattering spoilers, there will be special guests, an announcement about a thrilling new Ausiello-esque feature on, and an incredible giveaway that will put Oprah's $1,000 debit-card gimmick to shame.

Now, head on over to the Ask Ausiello Discussion Thread in the Ausiello Report to put in your two cents about this week's column. And if you have a favorite AA memory to share, send it to me ASAP at If it's expletive-free, there's a good chance it'll appear in next week's 100th column. This is your chance to be a part of history! (See? I can show restraint.)
