Hollywood in one simple lesson

People often ask me what it's like covering television. The answer is, like this...

At a panel for ABC's Grey's Anatomy spinoff Private Practice, a critic asked cast member Tim Daly -- Abc_press_tour_la121 who last season starred in The Nine, a serialized drama quickly yanked by ABC -- if it was deflating to work on a show built around a mystery that's never resolved. "Is it frustrating to do that kind of series and then realize there's never going to be a payoff?" the critic asked.

Daly, looking thoughtful, began to reply. "Well, first of all --" and then suddenly he stopped, eyes staring off into the distance. After a lonnnnnnnnnng pause, he continued: "I'm trying to think of a way to congratulate myself on my Emmy nomination."
