Wilson Gets Girlie In January
  There hasn't been what one would call a lot of publicity for the upcoming Showtime mini-series "A Girl Thing," co-starring La Femme herself, until Entertainment Weekly aired its mini-segment of this week's L.A. premiere.

The series premise, according to the Showtime web site, is about a psychiatrist who listens to women grappling with their unique challenges, such as suddenly being attracted to another woman, having a husband who is having an affair, and struggling with a mother's death.

While there was no sight of Wilson at the premiere, some of the series' other high-profile co-stars, namely Kate Capshaw, Camryn Manheim, Elle MacPherson, Allison Janney, Rebecca De Mornay, and Stockard Channing all got roughly two seconds in front of the ET cameras, mostly to share their surprise and joy with high-pitched "Oh my God! Fabulous!" responses to the news that Calista Flockhart has adopted a cute baby boy.

The first segment of "A Girl Thing" airs on January 20 and 29 at 8 p.m., and the second installment, featuring Wilson, hits TV screen nationwide on January 27 and 30, also at 8 p.m.

LFN Marathon Schedule Unveiled
  It's another 26 days until the January 7 premiere of the fifth and final season of LFN, but USA Networks, possibly in an effort to make amends for its abominable treatment of fans throughout the show's 4-year run and particularly during the SaveLFN campaign, is kicking off the real new millennium with a 12-hour LFN marathon on New Year's Day. From 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. there will be back-to-back episodes from all four seasons, except for the Noon to 1 p.m. time slot, during which, yet-unconfirmed rumor has it, interviews with cast members may be aired. Check out the exact episode line-up here.

Post-LFN, Matthew Ferguson Returns To The Stage
  Recently writer Karin Davies, aka Northstar, accepted a Flash Mission issued by fellow operatives at the Heyn's Hussies board. The objective: See Matthew Ferguson in the play "Glace Bay Miner's Museum" and tell him personally that his loyal LFN fans wish him the best of luck. So on November 9 she packed up her mission gear — a camera and a bag of Oreo cookies — and drove to Sudbury, Ontario, where she found Ferguson happy to be back on stage, and still fond of his trademark LFN snack. Read her full debrief here.
