    That’s awesome. I loved Stella on CSI:NY.

    Hope Melina K should have her own series sometime in the near future. So excited for Obama on The Colbert Report special but still no word on when Late Show with Stephen Colbert is going to premiere on CBS depending on the official date on when David Letterman is ending his run on The Late Show.

    That Marry Me news is so great! I’ve been hoping Kay would get her own storyline, and I love Ana Ortiz. Yay!

    Nice to see that Melina will be in Hawaii Five O(but for how long?) How about thinking about her for CSI next season, when George Eads leaves? Unless of course, CBS is planning to cancel CSI, which seems to be the case since they cut the amount of episodes this season after moving it to Sunday at 10 pm e.s.t. What a shame. How about moving Madam Secretary to 10 pm Sunday next fall(if it’s renewed) so that CBS can get rid of something that really needs to go?
