Ox Notes: July 18, 2008

In anticipation of this Sunday’s Mad Men marathon on AMC, the Chicago Tribune’s Maureen Ryan posted a series of interviews with the stars and creator of the show: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

Ryan also posted in her blog, The Watcher, that Jay Leno says he’s "done with NBC."

NBC’s fight to keep Project Runway from moving (from NBC-owned Bravo) to Lifetime has gone to court.

Wizard’s First Rule, a new weekly syndicated series from Hercules and Xena creator Sam Raimi, will premiere November 1.

ABC’s president told Reality Blurred that, if ratings don’t improve in the next few weeks, The Mole won’t be back for a fourth season.

Variety got reactions from some of the folks nominated for Emmys yesterday, and Reality Blurred has a list of nominees in the Emmys’ reality show categories.

So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Mia Michaels got into trouble (again) earlier in the week for saying that Utah generates so many talented dancers because Mormons "have no social life." She later issued an apology.

The highlight of last night’s SYTYCD results show had to be the group Bollywood routine that opened the show (not that I’m biased, or anything). The song they performed to came from the film Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, a cute romantic comedy with some great dance numbers and at least one terrible wig. I’m off to review Kismat Konnection. Have great weekend!
