Lauren Graham officially cast on Parenthood

After the talk of Helen Hunt getting the role of a divorce mom struggling to get by, the former star of Gilmore Girls has landed the role... just like Bob wrote.

Hip-hip-hooray! Don't get me wrong. My heart goes out to Maura Tierney who had to drop out because she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I wish her a speed recovery and a great role in another series after her treatments are successful. And Helen Hunt might have been a lovely choice, too. But I am a major Gilmore Girls fan. I'm thrilled to pieces that Lauren is coming back to series TV.

I'm even okay about it being on NBC! Chuck, The Office and Parenthood might be the only reasons I watch the Peacock as a matter of fact. (Yes, I know some people still have a soft spot for shows like Heroes, but I drifted away.)

Back to Lauren, I wonder how similar her new character, Sarah Braverman is to Lorelai Gilmore? She's a single mother in her new role -- albeit divorced this time -- and she does have a teen-aged daughter. Hmm... any chance the producers might ask Amy Sherman-Palladino to do some script writing? Amy really had a way with dialogue for Lauren.

Lauren and the cast had such a great season 1 that they're back for a 2nd season! I'm absolutely thrilled about this and just found out while I was testing DISHonline.com for my job at DISH Network. It lets you watch movies and TV shows online at no cost and they have Parenthood, woohoo! Check it out!

BAH, I wanted Mare Winningham or Kathryn Erbe if the Law & Order : Criminal Intent thing becomes a reality

I think you mean, just like Michael Ausiello wrote, and Bob reblogged.
