Ox Notes: January 11, 2008

According to a report at Yahoo! TV, the format for Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards Announcement is still up in the air. The only thing that is certain is that the press conference will be immediately followed by an American Gladiators rerun.

As a cost-saving measure — or perhaps a little jab at the WGA strike-supporting Screen Actors Guild members — ABC has announced that it won’t pay for its nominees to get their hair and makeup done for the SAG awards ceremony, as the network has done in the past.

The lack of original scripted programming has also forced poor ABC to revive The Bachelorette for a summer run. I’m not sure whether to feel sorrier for the network or for us viewers.

Just in time for the return of Top Chef in March, Bravo will release a cookbook based on the series. But will it have CJ’s roasted broccolini?

Ousted Project Runway designer Kevin told People that Christian wasn’t exaggerating when he complained that his teenage client was hard to work with.

Ahead of Sunday night’s new episode of The Amazing Race, TV Guide interviewed the most recent team to be eliminated, Kynt & Vyxsin. I was not at all surprised to learn that, even with backpack space at a premium, Kynt packed a flatiron for his hair.

Finally, here’s a link to a TV Guide interview with Karl Urban, who plays the lead in the miniseries based on Larry McMurtry’s Comanche Moon. Karl, you’ll always be Eomer to me.
