Ox Notes: September 4, 2008

Fans of All My Children need not worry that Erica Kane will be written out of the show during Dancing with the Star‘s fall season. Actress Susan Lucci will fly back to the East Coast to record AMC on the days that DwtS is off the air.

Last season’s DwtS runner up, Jason Taylor, makes his debut with his new team, the Washington Redskins, tonight on NBC in a game against the New York Giants.

DwtS 2 contestant Stacy Keibler spoke with the Boston Herald about landing a role on the ABC Family miniseries Samurai Girl, which premieres Friday night. The Herald also has an interview with the star of Samurai Girl, Real World: San Diego cast member Jamie Chung.

Ex-vampire David Boreanaz has been making the rounds promoting the new season of Bones, which kicked off last night on FOX. He chatted with The Futon Critic about filming in London, and answered 17 Pop-Culture Questions for EW.

During the Bones premiere, I was watching Project Runway. Bravo’s website posted a Q&A with the auf’d designer, as well as Tim Gunn’s latest blog post, in which he helpfully explains that the CFDA Fund (a charity mentioned during the episode) is the Council of Fashion Designers of America Fund.

The premiere of The CW’s 90210 was watched by nearly 5 million people.

Reality Blurred’s Andy Dehnart posted his impressions of Survivor: Gabon contestants Susie Smith and Bob Crowley.

Chicago Tribune TV writer Maureen Ryan was at the taping of Oprah’s Olympic special in Chicago’s Millenium Park yesterday. Ryan reports that Oprah asked the athletes " exactly the kinds of questions you’ve already heard if you watched any of NBC’s Olympic coverage." No need to tune into that show next week.

My review of the Hindi movie Rock On!! appears in the Naperville Sun today; if it’s playing in a theater near you, it’s worth checking out. The Sun also features my review of College, a movie that should be avoided at all costs.

College was part of a trio of terrible movies released last Friday, none of which were screened in advance for critics. Naperville Sun movie editor Josh Larsen wrote about the unprecedented horribleness of last weekend’s releases, and the warning those films should provide to anyone thinking of seeing Bangkok Dangerous when it hits theaters tomorrow. It wasn’t screened for critics either.
