PARTY!!!!!!

Last night we held the TCA Awards and all the attendant wackiness. Angela, Meredith and Kevin from "The Office" and Dr. Weber from "Grey's Anatomy" were all good, albeit confused, sports who stuck around afterwards to participate in very silly rituals like The TCA Alt-Awards (awards about critics, like the one most likely to quit and become a publicist or the one best suited to hosting a talk show) and Transcript Theatre (Weber did a dramatic reading from Mr. T's session about why he pities the fool).

You can find an account of the more serious parts of the evening over at the tour blog. (Below that is a brief write-up on NBC's punishing 10000 degree party.) Meanwhile, today's column is, of course, on "Studio 60" vs. "30 Rock."

Because I was too busy trying to recruit Sara Ramirez to join in Transcript Theatre, I missed "Deadwood" and "Entourage." Cone of Silence up. Give me a few days after I get back to Jersey on Wednesday and we can hopefully return to the old routine.

And, typically, in the column, I say Tina Fey is leaving "SNL" to work full-time on "Studio 60." Irony or mistake? You make the call.

So, can we assume you won an alt-Award for "Most Likely To Appear on Project Runway" this year?

Given that Sorkin made the joke about his new NBC show "30 Rock" in his TCA Awards speech, I have to say that at this point, all confusion -- real, feigned, etc -- is probably fair play...

Alan, I'm a regular reader of your blog and the editor of TeeVee.org. How cool is is that Steve Carell read one of our nasty reviews? And that it got big laughs? We've been covered in Variety and Entertainment Weekly and the like, but this is definitely one of the highlights of our 10 years on the Web.

I'd kill for someone's audio recording or videotape of the event!
