The CW press tour preview - TCA report

The CWYou know you've moved on in the TV critics press tour from CBS to its sister network The CW by the pages -- those helpful young men and women who direct members of the press to where lunch is being served. They also bring handheld microphones to the reporters during the sessions so their questions can be heard.

I'm betting that the CBS pages are wearing the same polyester red jackets that I did way back when Murphy Brown was on the air.

The CW pages wear green coats, and the pages themselves all look like models. Many of them are hotter than the actors on the CW shows themselves. (And the stars on CW shows are pretty hot!) I wonder how many of the pages (actors, too, I'm betting) are thinking, "I should be on a show," as they're running a microphone over to a reporter.

Well, hang in there pages. Anything can -- and does -- happen in this town.

There are five panels today plus an executive session led by Dawn Ostroff, President of Entertainment at The CW. Paul McGuire, Executive Vice President of Communications, is known for his hilarious opening remarks, so it should be an entertaining day.

We're going on a field trip of sorts -- the session for the CW series Life is Wild is being broadcast via satellite from South Africa.

Other panels will be on Aliens in America, a sitcom starring Scott Patterson (Gilmore Girls); CW Now and Online Nation, the network's plan to keep up with Internet users; Gossip Girl from Josh Schwartz, who created The O.C.; and the hour long Reaper, which stars Heroes' Missy Peregrym.

Tonight's party is off-site at the Pacific Design Center. I've seen more star-studded guests lists. Here's hoping at least one cast member from Smallville -- my favorite show -- makes the scene.

Stay tuned. And remember, we're all "free to be."
