This is in the latest Ask Ausiello ....

Question: I'm excited to hear about the possible shortened eighth season of Gilmore Girls. Got anything new to report on that front?— Heather
Ausiello: At the show's wrap party Sunday night, everyone and their sister was talking about the short order as if it was a done deal. The only sticking point appears to be the number of episodes. I'm hearing 13, but I imagine the CW is trying to stretch that to at least 16. An official announcement is imminent.

Excitement much!?!?!

~Heidi

That's awesome!! I'm still not giving up yet though! I'm writing and sending my books/ daisies to the girls and letting them know just how happy it would make me to get confirmation that a season 8 is on it's way! I'm thinking positive and any glimmer of hope is great about now!! This is wonderful...especially after seeing tonight's long awaited new episode!! Thanks for posting, Heidi!!  ;D

Wait...so we don't care that tvguide poll ended w/out a word?

Well, it's not as if Kristin's SOS contest has gotten its annual coverage on E! News, either.  Do I detect a conspiracy?  (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink) 

I think what we might be seeing is the modern day answers to Hedda Hopper (Ausiello) and Louella Parsons (Kristin, or is it the other way around) bringing themselves down. ::)

With the recent news, I'm kind of expecting Kristin's SOS coverage to include an actual season 8 announcement now.  Anyone else?

Looks like our prayers might actually be answered. ;)

The banners are on the first page of this forum I think...

The "You're just as cute as Pushkin" quote that I said is from the episode "But Not As Cute As Pushkin" and it is when Rory is taking that girl Anna on a tour of Yale in Season 5.  They are in the library and Rory is smelling the books, and Logan comes around and when he leaves, Anna says that he's cute and Rory says "but not as cute as Pushkin" who is a Russian poet/author somethingrather, Alexander Pushkin.

I really like the "You're the Reigning Lorelai - You Can Make It Happen" quote that you did

I know but I need a URL for it  and also I need a URL for the blue button, I'm going to put them both up at TV.com alongside the pink button already on there. ;)


Is this what you are after?

http://www.gilmoregirls.org/other/button8d.gif

Yes it was, now can I get one for that blue button? :P

ONCE AGAIN~~~~
Here is a little update which I found on spoilerfix.com about what would happen if Gilmore Girls returned for a season 8:
"General Spoilers:

    * new 04/16 - Negotiations to bring Gilmore Girls back for an eighth season took a very interesting turn on Friday. According to multiple sources embedded deep inside Stars Hollow, Lauren Graham — she on which all things hinge — is allegedly warming to the idea of returning for a shortened season, à la Friends and Everybody Loves Raymond. Word of this condensed scenario was "the talk of the set" on Friday, one day before shooting on the show's current season was scheduled to wrap. My spy was quick to add, however, that nothing's official and it's very possible this whole thing could unravel before anything's signed. Source: TV Guide Online"
"I have absolutely no intrest in changing myself in order for people to like me more.... I'm in a very good, healthy place.  I've got an amazing family.  I have a wonderful job, and people aren't sick of me yet."

First of all I'd just like to say kudos to Heidi for getting this started and for putting so much effort towards a cause that we all will appreciate, because what would Gilmore Girls fans be without Gilmore Girls?! And thank you to everyone else who has also campaigned for season8!
-oh my gosh how corny did that sound!!! I just really want there to be another season!!

Wow all this talk about season8 whether shortened or not it's still good news and hopefully they'll think about it more and decide to lengthen it.

Gilmore Girls deserves a full season8, it has been going such a long time now!

I definately would prefer a long Season 8 but a short one is better than nothing and I really hope we get it!

We were SOOO ahead.
I bet he just decided to pull the poll as soon as we dropped behind because he wanted VM to win.
LAME.

Anywhoooo I was just wondering if anyone had heard word on the picture book thing?
And if it had been recieved well, etc?

OMG!  I'm so excited!  That is such great news to wake up!   ;)  When I started reading the thread my brother thought I was in trouble I was screaming so loud!  Even if it is only a shorten season it is completely better than nothing, and who knows, they might end up lengthing it to a full season.  But I'm just thrilled for this...THRILLED! ;D

LUKE: You knew what I was doing!
LORELAI: Well, no, not officially.
LUKE: Not officially? Oh, come on. I mean, I didn't have a ref present, but other than that.
LORELAI: Well, you didn't say anything official.

So if and when we get a shortened Season 8, what are we going to come up with as far as a name to try to extend the Season 8 to an entire season?

lol

Might I suggest, "Back Nine -- Because Lorelai's fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinne!  :smitten:

And then, "Season Nine -- Because Lorelai's divine!"
