NEWS: Burton, ATWT, Zucker, Paterson, Hall, Kennedy

INTERVIEW: GH's Steve Burton (Jason)
"Listen, I just got back from an appearance and there were a lot of Elizabeth and Jason fans. And look, I have a job to do. I love working with Becky Herbst (Elizabeth) and I thought there was probably a lot more they could have told with Jason and Elizabeth and Jake. But that is not the way they went, and that is just how it goes. They want Jason and Sam back together, so now my job is to make that work."

“Sometimes they come. They’re just like you or me,” he said.

Cady McClain: Things They Never Tell You
"Instead of dealing with my feelings I began experimenting with various anti-depressants in order to relieve the overall suck factor of the situation, as well as to not deal with the feelings of anger I had about the fertility issue. The writing on AMC did not help, but lets leave that lay where Jesus flang it."

Daniel Kennedy on his AMC exit

CHUCK already has a huge online fanbase. Now, NBC is hoping to harness the power of the nerd masses to help hype the show's return. The network tonight is launching "Mission: Chuck Me Out." a social media-based game in which Chuckaholics can win prizes and other rewards by spreading the gospel according to Bartowski.

Using the already existing site, fans can sign up their Twitter, Facebook and MySpace campaign for the game. Then, every time they preach CHUCK or get friends to watch a clip of the show or otherwise pimp the series, they'll earn points.
