With the dismal TV offerings we have in this schlumpy season, we can't believe how happy we were to see the return last night, of that perennial curmudgeon, Anthony Bourdain. "No Reservations" was excellent and we're looking forwards to the rest of the season. Have you been pleasantly surprised by a show lately? Let us in on your discovery because we're desperate.
In awards show news, Russell Brand will be hosting the MTV Video Music Awards on September 13th and Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting the Emmys on September 20th - LAist hopes to be at both of these events so look for our coverage.
