    Please tell me that’s a typo and should be Winter 2013? Do we really have to wait a year & a half?

    I wonder if Nathan is going to model his character after a certain clueless arrogant jackass that used to be the head of daytime for one of the networks?

    The cast & show sounds amazing! I can’t wait to see it even if it will be a while.
