Before I go...

ausiello-ew-finaleImage Credit: Mitchell Haaseth/NBC; Kirsty Griffin/Starz; Art Streiber/NBC; Paul Drinkwater/NBC…here are my top 10 favorite EW memories, with a few exclusive scoops and spoilers mixed in.

SCOOP: This Parks and Recreation casting coup is made of pure win: Sources confirm to me exclusively that Indie goddess Parker Posey has been tapped to guest star as an old rival of Leslie’s (Amy Poehler) who works in the snooty, richer town next to Pawnee. NBC, please put my favorite comedy back on the air, like, yesterday.

10. Getting assaulted at Comic-Con by the cast of Spartacus: Blood and Sand (below).

SPOILER: Look for Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Gaby’s (Minka Kelly) relationship on Parenthood to evolve to the point where it puts him at odds with brother Adam.

9. Getting assaulted at Comic-Con by the cast of Community (below).

8. The premiere of Ausiello TV!

SCOOP: The best way to stay abreast (tee-hee, I said breast) of my life and career post-EW is to join my brand new Facebook page. Do it. Now.

7. My Katherine Heigl cover story. We ate crudite and sipped white wine on her second-floor balcony for chrissakes! I’m also really proud of the story.

SPOILER: 30 Rock‘s Christmas episode will flash back to show us a Young Liz having a heated exchange with a mall Santa.

6. This House exclusive.

SPOILER: Parenthood‘s Adam/Sarah/Gordon “triangle” comes to a head at the Braverman’s Thanksgiving celebration. Per a source, things get ugly during the family’s traditional touch football game.

5. The finale of Ausiello TV.

SCOOP: ABC’s decision to order four additional episodes of Brothers & Sisters has exec producer David Marshall Grant feeling optimistic about the show going another season. “I’m starting to get indications that this is not the end,” he tells me. “I’m living with the hope that we might have another season.”

4. My weekend in Dillon, TX.

SCOOP: New details are leaking out about the new girlfriend Tommy (Balthazar Getty) will be bringing home on Brothers & Sisters in early ’11. Rose is described as a spirited and polished Italian-American real estate agent who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. I smell fireworks at the Walker dinner table!

3. Talking merkins with Lucy Lawless (below).

SPOILER: This Sunday’s Boardwalk Empire features M.L.A. (major lesbian action).

2. My afternoon in Pawnee.

1. Walking into the EW offices for the first time as an employee on July 2, 2008.

Thanks for the memories!

        I’ve also been with you since TV Guide. And I much prefer you to Kristin. She’s so hyperbolic, while you never over-promise. You are, in fact, the reason I ever started reading EW.

      • April Conger

        This isn’t goodbye!! I’m coming with you! I’ll still visit EW but I was here for you. :o)

    • eightdaysaweek

      I concur. I followed from TV Guide and will follow again. I did discover some things I like about EW thanks to Ausiello’s move and will probably keep visiting but my loyalty lies with Michael Ausiello wherever he may be.

      • Mikos

    Good journey, Aus. Can’t wait to see your next venture.

    “Adam/Sarah/Gordon triangle” That totally sounds like he’s getting it on with his sister.

    Ugh Crosby, can’t you keep it in your pants now that you’re engaged to Jasmine??

  • Ashley

    Thank you, good luck!!

  • Manda

    We will miss you! Good luck with your future ventures!

  • Bee

    oh and brothers & sisters should only continue if they can get ALL their current cast members to go on: nora, kitty, sarah, kevin, scotty, justin, and even holly and saul. which is going to be tough. the show’s lost soo many characters already so i REALLY hope that if they somehow do go beyond this season (which i think may be unlikely since the ratings already are only average and come springtime, could get worse.), they need to make sure no one’s leaving.

  • chattypatra

    I’m surprised that a Keri Russell moment didn’t make your Top Ten. Don’t you love her anymore? Miss you already!

  • Zach

    You’re leaving? Who knew?

  • Barry

    Parting is such sweet sorrow so please leave already!!!

  • Leslie won’t be the same without you & your scoops. Can’t wait to see what you have coming up next!

  • Andrea

    Good luck, Ausiello! We’ll miss you here, but I look forward to your new site.
