Jim's Notebook: Parenthood, The Carrie Diaries and More!

by at . Comments

I grabbed so much great coverage on the new fall TV season last week at the network Upfronts in New York City that I’m bringing you TV Fanatics more exclusive videos from the red carpets.

At the ABC/EW Upfront Party, Anne Sweeney - Co-Chair, Disney Media Group, and President, Disney/ABC Television Group - told me how the new ABC schedule is put together and how shows like Scandal can impact choices:

At the NBC Upfront at Radio City Music Hall, Monica Potter - who earlier this week nabbed a Critics Choice Nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama - talked Emmy buzz for her cancer storyline on Parenthood Season 4:

Finally, we all know that The CW wisely picked up The Carrie Diaries for Season 2, so we talked to stars Anna Sophia Robb and Brendan Dooling about what they’d like to see next for Carrie and Walt:

Parenthood Quotes

Amber, you know, I was two years in Viet Nam. Do you know what I thought about, what I dreamt about? Coming home, having a family, having grandkids. I dreamt you, Amber. And Haddie, and Drew, and Sydney and Max. We almost lost ya Amber. You've had some bad breaks. You're not feeling good about yourself. You didn't get into Berkeley? Well boo friggin who. You got to suck it up girl, you're a Braverman. You got my blood in your veins. If you ever do something like this again, if you even think of doing something like this again, I will kick your little butt all the way from here to the Golden Gate Bridge. You do not have my permission to mess with my dreams. Are we clear?


Amber, life will knock you down more times than you can possibly imagine. Don't knock yourself down.

Adam [to Amber]
