Best of the Boob Tube 

Thursday, Feb 28 2013
Who would you rather hang out with -- a bunch of zombies, nerds or journalists? (And don't say they're one and the same.) Luckily for you, the Paley Center for Media's annual PaleyFest will for the next two weeks get you up close and personal with them and more as the museum hosts discussions with the cast and crew of TV's newest and biggest sitcoms and dramas: The Walking Dead (3/1), Revolution (3/2), Once Upon a Time (3/3), The Newsroom (3/3), Community (3/5), The New Normal (3/6), Parenthood (3/7), The Mindy Project (3/8), Nashville (3/9), Arrow (3/9), Dallas (3/10), New Girl (3/11), The Big Bang Theory (3/13), 2 Broke Girls (3/14) and American Horror Story: Asylum (3/15). Writers from TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly will do most of the moderating, with the exception of Chris Hardwick, who'll sit down with the actors of The Walking Dead, and Piers Morgan, who'll talk to the stars of The Newsroom. You'll also see such prime-time heavyweights as Aaron Sorkin, Ryan Murphy and Chuck Lorre. Wonder how long it'll take before someone asks the Community guys about last year's feud between now-departed star Chevy Chase and show creator Dan Harmon, which looked about as much fun as the Lorre-Charlie Sheen debacle of 2011. Be our guest, and be really nosy. Saban Theater, 8440 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills; Fri., March 1, 7 p.m.; thru March 15; $20-$75. (310) 786-1091, paleycenter.org.
March 1-3; March 5-11; March 13-15, 2013

    Community returns for season 5 on January 2 with a two-episode block that plants its feet on the study room table and regrounds the characters after a fourth season of viewer discontent and lost purpose.
