We did dozens of interviews this year so it was difficult to narrow them down to the 10 "best" but we tried. We also tried to keep this list to sit-down and/or in-depth interviews vs. the quickie ones we get at events we cover.Jonathan Ames - We got to speak with the award winning author and creator/showrunner of HBO's "Bored To Death" near his summer place in Venice. It was great to interview him although he thought he was boring, which he most certainly wasn't. I was also contacted by the restaurant's PR agency after my description of the service wasn't 100% positive.

Donal Logue - While we had a chance to speak with Donal Logue at the "Sons of Anarchy" premiere that was nothing compared to the in-depth interview we had with him a couple months later. Logue voiced some concerns about low ratings for his FX show, "Terriers," and unfortunately the show was cancelled after one season. Still, "Terriers" made our Top Ten of 2010 List and it's a show that will live on long after many of the "successful" shows finally flop after a few more seasons.

Bob Saget - I had interviewed Bob Saget a couple years ago, doing a phoner while he walked through a Las Vegas casino, but this time we had the chance to have a more measured discussion, this time about his new show "Strange Days With Bob Saget" on A&E. In a calmer setting Saget revealed himself to be someone genuinely humbled and appreciative of his good fortune while still retaining the complete weirdness that makes him one of the funniest guys in comedy.
