An empty chair at the table

Fifteen days into the new year, and I’ve finally come up with a resolution for 2013:

I wanna do a table read.

ABC-Modern-Family-Table-ReadCelebs are always tweeting photos of them now —

The whole cast gathered round the table, getting their first glimpse of that week’s episode.  Sometimes there are table tents identifying the major players.  Some folks are eating. Everyone appears to be having a good ol’ time.

I wanna go.  I wanna have fun.

It seems like I have enough friends-of-a-friend-of-an-acquaintance to make this happen.  Or, I can go grassroots and use social media to make my case.

Will I get invited to the table?  Is 2013 the year??

You gotta believe!!!

Ray of hope

Dear Ron Howard:

Thank you for adding Ray Romano to the cast of Parenthood this season.

I love his character, Hank.  I love the relationship that Hank has with Sarah Braverman, played by Lauren Graham.

Heck, I even love his glasses.

As devastated as I was by the cancellation of Romano’s wonderful TBS series Men of a Certain Age, this new role almost heals that wound.

Almost.

If Hank ends up having a limited run, though, the weeping will no doubt start anew.
