So the Museum of Television and Radio is holding the William S. Paley Television Festival from March 2-March 16. If you've ever watched a show and wondered, "What on Earth were they thinking?" -- well, now's your chance to find out.
Some events are likely to be fairly well-attended, like the Desperate Housewives event ( 7 p.m., Tues, March 8, with: Marc Cherry and the Desperate Housewives. Wow, that would be an excellent band name.), the Lost night (7 p.m., Sat, March 12, with: J.J. Abrams and what appears to be everyone on the island except the polar bear) and the Veronica Mars night (Mon, March 14 with: Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni, Joel Silver, Rob Thomas. I have no jokes about this.).
Personally, I'm scoping out the Adult Swim event (7 p.m., Fri, March 4) and Michael Palin night (7 p.m., Fri, March 11), because I am just THAT MUCH of a cable-watching dork. Other cable-watching dorks may appreciate the L-Word event (7 p.m., Thurs, March 10) and the Deadwood event (7 p.m., Wed, March 16).
Each event costs $25 for museum members and $29 for non-members; tickets go on sale Feb 5 for members and Feb 11 for us unwashed masses*.
