Post Alex's new gig

It appears that Alex has indeed moved on. The comedy queen won't be back for MADtv's new season, but she *does* have a new website and a new one-woman show! Here's a blurb from the official site:
MADtv's Alex Borstein hits the road with her one-woman show. Best known for her character, Ms. Swan ("He look like a man"), Alex will debut her 90-minute show in Seattle and move on to San Francisco, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. In her show Alex explores her childhood search for female role models on TV and, ultimately, trying to become one herself.
Exciting news! Props go out to the always helpful kittykat for that one.

They re-shot the pilot at the end of July, and NBC is considering it as a possible midseason replacement. Let's just hope some of their new shows croak!

LOL! This is the fall season! Dozens and dozens of shows are going to hit the ground like a safe! Probably within 2 or 3 weeks of airing for the first time...

I kind of find it amusing when we're bombarded with promos ALL summer long (especially for certain shows..."The most anticipated show of the fall season") and then they're cancelled 3 weeks into their run.

Although, it's not funny when it's one of MY shows!

LOL, yeah, but does NBC actually *have* any new shows this season? All I've heard about thus far is Boomtown and that new Inside Schwartz-ish Thursday show whose name escapes me at the moment. Of course, I guess that could be due to the fact that my TV is always broken.

LOL yeah, you and your damn tv! As for NBC, that's the only network I haven't watched at all this summer, so I haven't a clue what they've got coming.

I feel your pain, Mel!

i hate bloody network people
they don't give shows a decent chance
three weeks isn't a good time frame to judge the quality of a program

and thank god we aren't hit with promos for crap shows that only show for 3 weeks
woooooooooo

Unfortunately, after the Seattle show, Alex had to cancel the tour. She had to film for two Disney movies. She just finished shooting a couple weeks ago though, so I'm assuming she's rescheduling tour dates now..
