Big Bieke News

So, I'm engaged.

I asked my girlfriend Lauren to marry me on Sunday, and she said yes (God knows why!).

No date for a wedding yet, but we're very excited about planning one.

And we'll keep you informed.

(Doesn't she look happy? I must be doing something right... who knew?)

Fall TV Line-up

Well, the upfronts are over, and we now know what's coming next season on all the networks. In case you care as much as me (well, we all know that's not possible...because I care waaaaaaaaay too much about these things. It's the TiVo, dammit!), you can check out the fall schedule here.

As for me, I'll just point out that I'm very excited about The Nine & Six Degrees on ABC and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Heroes on NBC.

Doug also pointed out to me that Jericho on CBS is yet another disaster show set in Kansas. Yes I know Kansas is a little bleak (mostly western Kansas), but does Hollywood also have to portray it as the end of the world? The answer...I guess...is yes. OK then...

I'm sure I'll be watching anyway. I watch everything else, after all.

New Look Fox

So, we're all too busy with sweeps to post, huh?

In any case, I just thought I'd point out that I think it's pretty clear what the Fox O&O's are doing with their new websites. You know, the one's Sandra told us they were building. myfoxNY has launched in beta, and there rumor mill is the rest of the O&O markets will have myfox(insert city here) soon. myfoxkc.com comes up with a temporarily unavailble message, but I have a feeling that will change soon.

It looks very...foxy. Big fonts, lots of color. Lots of video. It also shows off the new on-air look that is supposed to match FOX News and their new brand name "The most powerful name is local news." Sound familiar? Look for those at a FOX station near you too.
