First off, Dan is fine. He was planning to be with all of you today, but alas, it was not to be. He called me shortly after he landed in Park City, Utah (where he's on deck to cover Sundance) and asked me to pinch hit, as the wi-fi there was on the fritz. There are very few things that can keep Dan from his appointed rounds (he's like a postal carrier that way), but an inability to actually file a story will take any reporter down at the knees. To complicate matters, I was in Santa Clarita visiting the set of "Vegas" at the time, so I'm also coming to the party a little late (thus, the lack of live blogging). My apologies in advance if this seems a little harried because, well... it is. So let's get on with the show!
And as always, feel free to e-mail us questions for the podcast.
Because of the football game between the Patriots and Texans -- GO PATS! -- I missed most of the red carpet coverage before Sunday (January 13) night's Golden Globe awards.
That gives me something else to muse on during this live-blog, other than the usual winners, losers, speeches and graceful hosting by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Follow the live-blog, join the conversation and make fun of the dreadful predictions from me and Greg Ellwood.

It's another relatively controversy-free season for CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler.
Yes, "Partners" and "Made in Jersey" tanked and neither "Vegas" nor "Elementary" is necessarily doing the numbers CBS would like, but it's still TV's most watched network and hits like "NCIS" show no sign of fading.

It's party time for ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee.
Expect questions about the failure of of "Last Resort" and the upcoming production on Joss Whedon's "S.H.I.E.L.D."
FX President and General Manager John Landgraf doesn't really have that much to answer for as he takes the stage on Wednesday (Jan.9) at the Television Critics Association press tour.
There haven't been any abrupt cancellations. "Louie" and "American Horror Story" won Emmys. "Sons of Anarchy" keeps setting ratings highs. Etc.
Yes, "Louie" is taking a year off, but that's not Landgraf's fault...
