Turns out that the gods have arranged it so that I'm going to be home tonight to watch the final episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and, although the redoubtable Ken Houghton has offered to take on the live-blogging chores for a third time, I'm going to take the controls myself tonight. I started this party and I think I should be the one to finish it.
And party's the right word. The show itself has never been the point of the live-blogging for me. What I've enjoyed is the virtual parties that get thrown in the comment section. It's been lots of fun and I want to thank all of you who've contributed or just stopped by to lurk. What I'd like then is for tonight to be our farewell party.
Everyone's invited. Even if you've never watched the show, even if you've given up and wild horses couldn't drag you back, even if you have no plans to watch tonight, and even if you've steered clear of these live-blogs before, please stop by here after 9:45 PM EST and comment away. Comment on whatever. Feel free to ignore those of us watching the show and start a coversation on some other topic, leave a link to a song, boost your own blog, boost a pal's, or just keep us updated on the ball scores. Just, please, stop in and at least say hi.
See you tonight.
