Bumps in the Night

Perhaps it was an homage to “Lost,” but for whatever reason the limited lighting at the ABC stars party made the whole affair turn into blind man’s bluff.

Still, we were able to find enough people to shed some light on what’s going on with the networks two top series.

For one thing, “Desperate Housewives” opens up with Mike Delfino (Jamie Denton) in a coma. Susan (Teri Hatcher) starts a vigil at his hospital bed, but before she knows it, she finds herself attracted to the man played by Dougray Scott, across the hall whose wife is in a coma.

“It’s like she’s waiting for Jimmy Stewart to wake up, but she’s looking at Cary Grant across the hall,” says creator Marc Cherry.

Bree (Marcia Cross) gets married to Kyle McLachlan, while Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) gets stuck caring for the mother of her unborn child, who was fathered either artificially or the old-fashioned way by tossed out hubby Carlos.

And make no mistake, they are putting the funny back into the show by lining up an A-list of comedy writers from such shows as “Frasier” and “Will & Grace.”

As it turned out, the night was filled with producers ready to spill series secrets. When news that “Lost” producer Carlton Cuse was having an attack of loose lips over in the corner, almost every critic in the party clawed their way through the crowd to get the low down.

First, Cuse says, Desmond isn’t dead. And we’ll be spending the first six episodes, before it goes on hiatus until next spring, seeing Kate, Jack and Sawyer dealing with life in captivity.

The trio will be with The Others, and Cuse says we’ll discover that The Others are quite different from what we thought. Also, the outside world was introduced in the season finale (“and that’s not going away” Cuse says), with men at an ice station detecting where the Losties are located.

So again we ask, “Does this explain the polar bear in the first season?”

“Well, the artic is the only place where polar bears live,” says Cuse. “And polar bears will be back this season.”

Three actors playing characters on “Prison Break” have made their getaway to ABC. Patricia Wettig, who played the ambitious vice president, will now be “Brothers & Sisters” which is produced by her husband Ken Olin.

Sunnyvale’s Camille Guaty, who played the girlfriend of one of prisoners and John Billingsly, who played the supposedly dead brother of the vice president, joined the cast of “The Nine.”

There was supposed to be some “Dancing with Stars” action later, but the professional dancers said they just couldn’t work under these conditions.

Too dark.
