Despite expectations that broadcast series, interrupted by the writers strike, might suffer at Emmy time, two ABC series appeared to overcome that handicap. "Pushing Daisies" landed a dozen Emmy nominations on Thursday, including acting, writing and art direction nods. The network's "Samantha Who?" was also nominated twice, for lead and supporting actresses in a comedy series. While most basic cable shows, the major force in this year's nominations, were able to finish their full seasons before the writers strike began in November, many series on broadcast TV were truncated when the strike put casts and crews out of work.

Bradley Cooper could go against type for a Broadway revival of "The Elephant Man. " "We're going to try to do it on Broadway next fall," Cooper told E! News. "We're going to try to nail it down and do a limited run.

The play, which ran from July 25 to Aug. 5, earned Cooper and co-star Patricia Clarkson local critical praise.

Adorable is OK. And perky can have its moments. But an artist who embodies both always runs the risk of turning in performances just this side of a root canal. Why, then, was Kristin Chenoweth's concert Sunday at the Greek Theatre such an exquisite experience? She is adorable and perky. And she, herself, has referred to her "Betty Boop" sound. The answer stems from her extraordinary musicality, commanding stage presence, remarkably pliable voice and irresistible likability.

Of course we're talking about: Kristin Chenoweth's return to "Glee ." Not since "Ugly Betty's" Claire Meade has TV been blessed with such a lovable drunk. When last we saw Chenoweth's former glee clubber April Rhodes, she had gotten sloshed and booted from the McKinley High group.

Sean Hayes, who'll be hosting the 64th annual Tony Awards on Sunday night, has been at the center of a controversy fueled by a Newsweek writer who criticized the actor's performance because he's a gay man playing it straight on Broadway in "Promises, Promises." But no amount of nudging could get Hayes to address the whole hubbub — Newsweek's Ramin Setoodeh said Hayes turned the play into "unintentional camp" — during a call with reporters Wednesday morning. This is as close as he came as he talked about his stage costar Kristin Chenoweth: "She's an extraordinary talent and an amazing human being who's been such a huge support system for me," he said.
