Tonight was supposed to be the season premiere of Law & Order: Criminal Intent with Jeff Goldblum. Read: “supposed to be.” It’s not going to happen. The show was pushed to January which makes me sad! I love Jeff and I was really looking forward to seeing him on the show.
Dear me, I don’t know how I’ll ever catch up since I have to spend all day Saturday with the cast of the new TNT series Leverage! Sigh. Tough job, but somebody’s got to do it! Leverage stars actor-singer Christian Kane and his singing partner is Steve Carlson, who just happens to be performing in Los Angeles on Saturday night. If you live in the area and want to hear some sweet tunes, the show starts at 11 pm at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. Maybe I’ll see you there.
