My ACTUAL Incredibly Exciting News
So. All those reasons I was giving for this being The Most Incredibly Exciting Week Ever? Well, they're exciting enough, but none of them were really why I've been so excited. I couldn't give the ACTUAL, most exciting reason until today:
I wrote something, and today The Atlantic ran it on their site. I can't even express how excited I am about this. THE ATLANTIC. It's a dream come true. So, without further ado:
Will 'West Wing' Fans Be Able to Watch 'Good Guys'?

The Most Incredibly Exciting Week Ever
Okay, that may be overstating things a little, but seriously, folks, there's a lot of exciting pop culture stuff going on in the next week or so. Here's a rundown of the things that interest me. (Notes: All times are Eastern. Here's an explanation of "upfronts".)
Thursday, May 13
8 p.m.: The Vampire Diaries season finale (The episode description promises death and destruction. Damon says he wants to eat cotton candy and steal Stefan's girl. Yes, please!)
10 p.m.: Private Practice season finale (Okay, I'm not actually that excited about this, but apparently a main character will die, so there's that.)
Friday, May 14
Robin Hood and Letters to Juliet come out. No, I'm not expecting cinematic greatness from either, but as I am a fan of Matthew MacFadyen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and laughably bad historical movies, in the former case, and Amanda Seyfried, Gael Garcia Bernal, silly Taylor Swift songs, and Italy, in the latter case, I am looking forward to both of these.
Monday, May 17
9 p.m.: Gossip Girl season finale (Blair responds to Chuck's ultimatum and, as usual, Jenny does something that makes us want to kill her. Necessary preparations: watch An Affair to Remember; buy scotch.)
10 p.m.: Castle season finale (I'm rather hoping this will see the end of Anders Demming getting between Castle and Beckett, but we'll see. It's too early in the series for Castle and Beckett to get together, anyway.)
Muse's new single, "Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)," is released. (On a Monday? Yeah, I don't know.)
NBC and FOX Upfronts
Tuesday, May 18
9 p.m.: Neil Patrick Harris guest stars on Glee. Joss Whedon directs. (I don't need to explain why this is exciting, do I? Didn't think so.)
11 p.m.: Bradley Whitford on Chelsea Lately
The Demon's Covenant, the second book in Sarah Rees Brennan's Demon's Lexicon trilogy, is released.
The third album of songs from Glee comes out.
Wednesday, May 19
8 p.m.: The Good Guys preview episode (If you're unclear on my feelings about this, um, head over here.)
Google I/O 2010 begins.
Thursday, May 20
8 p.m.: Bones season finale (They're saying it's going to be shocking and polarizing, again. So I'm a little worried. But at least no alternate realities this time!)
9 p.m.: Grey's Anatomy season finale
10 p.m.: The Mentalist season finale
Google I/O 2010 ends, so we'll hopefully have an Android-as-hotspot announcement by then.

27 Words Per Second
A lot of my blogging these days is going on over at Good Guys Fans, and if you're interested in any of the following, I recommend checking it out: Bradley Whitford. Colin Hanks. Matt Nix. Jenny Wade. Diana Maria Riva. Burn Notice. Dallas. Comedy. Explosions. Hot men in suits. Quality television.
For those who have not been able to catch the promo they've been airing on FOX, I watched it approximately a million times and write about it in excruciating detail. Want 1200 words about a 45-second video? Sure you do.

So, that happened.
If you watched American Idol last Tuesday, or The Simpsons last night, you probably saw the first promo for The Good Guys. Lucky you. I didn't, and ended up going nuts trying to figure out a way to see it. I finally managed, with help from some lovely friends who happened to have it DVRed. So I watched it and then I wrote kind of a lot. What you need to know: Whitford. Hanks. Mustache.
