This Just In: Ask Ausiello Is [Spoiler Alert]

It’s taking the week off. But I have a good excuse! The perfect storm of the long holiday weekend and my late May nap schedule left me precious little time to answer your burning questions. On the bright side, this will only be a one-week hiatus. AA will be back in session next Tuesday night.

I’d like to end with a quote from ’80s philosopher Chicago: “Even lovers need a holiday… After all that we’ve been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.”

Still not letting me off the hook? Um… how ’bout if I distract you with a funny clip from Cougar Town‘s just-wrapped second season?

    • Yeah, it’s a good show, don’t let the name scare you off

    • Yay! I was hoping this post would get at least 1 person to watch Cougar Town. It’s one of the funniest comedies currently on television that not nearly enough people are watching. Definitely Netflix the first 2 seasons. :) Forget the crappy title – it really is an excellent show.

  • I’d love to know how Desperate Housewives’ Lynette and Tom are going to deal with their divorce!

    • They’re getting divorced? I haven’t watched the show since they killed off Nicolette Sheridan’s character. How many years ago? Wow.

      • I think Ausiello already spoiled that they’re *not* getting divorced. Or I saw it elsewhere on TVline….

      • Yup, they started having problems during the last episodes of season 7 and decided to divorce in the season finale.

        I know, I liked Edie too!

        @Ann S: He did? I hope you’re right, I LOVE Lynette&Tom, after all they’ve been through it’d be too bad for them to break up.

  • Bummer, I love AA too!
    But, I am very glad for the heads up- not just a lack of post.
    I know everyone needs a break now and then. I hope it’s a fun holiday.

  • Now I have a craving for a D@mn and an Iced D@mn. (I have no idea what that is but I sure want to try one!) ;-)

  • And I suppose you will take a couple of months off when the Smurf movie comes out.

  • I finally submit a question and he takes a week off? No smurfs for him! (Kidding, of course.)

  • Sorry, I don’t watch Cougar Town, but love the shout out to Coffee Bucks.

    • Then you should have watched the finale. There was MAJOR Scrubs love in the finale. A major character from Scrubs popped up and talked about other characters from the show and what they were up to. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!

  • Seriously?!? Why in the heck would you post an article saying you are not posting an article. I understand your name is on the masthead, but seriously? Just report next week and explain your absence then… Geez..

    Comment by Just Jules – May 31, 2011 07:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Wow…you got really upset by that. Um, you ok there?

    • nah… I was just cranky… i’ll even read those “non news” Twilight related articles.. this was kind of funny, for MA to take the time to write and upload an article about nothing… it was very Seinfeld show… (and just as annoying). :P

  • You answered my question about Hetty remaining a regular cast member on NCIS: LA next season. I’m cool with waiting a week. :)

  • Ausiello, I was watching your red carpet interview with Aubrey Plaza earlier and could not get enough of your back-and-forth. You have great comedic timing. More this Emmys?

  • Aw, shucks! I know you deserve a vacation, but I look forward to Wednesdays for AA, and I don’t watch “Cougar Town” so this is a bummer for me ;-)

  • The Chicago lyric drop gets you off the hook….this time :)

  • Hey Ausiello, you don’t need to make excuses to us, you can just take the week off, it’s okay. We will still love you.
