4 WEDNESDAY. APRIL 11, 2001 APPLAUSE THE SALINA JOURNAL Despite long odds, the spunky series succeeds By RICKKUSHMAN Sacramento Bee Say you're the star or creator of one of TVs best new shows, a quirky, invigorating little hour with wit and heart and barrels of entertainment value. And say your show is as laced with clever pop culture and literary references as it is vsdth breathtakingly quick dialogue and subtle emotions. And that it's got everything: great writing, great cast, even a great premise. And one more thing: Say critics love your show, I mean absolutely love it. It makes every Top 10 Ust in the country and ranks fourth in a poll of America's critics by Electronic Media magazine, ahead of shows like "ER" and "Friends" and just about everything else. You'd be happy, right? Completely thrilled. You'd be counting the years you're going to spend on this series and the many ways you're going to eryoy fame and fortune and, most of all, doing this great show. Right? Of course not. Life is never that easy. In other words, welcome to Hollywood. Or, as it's known on the Warner Bros, lot, the set of "Gilmore Girls," a razor-sharp, absolutely endearing hour that may have the worst time slot on television. "Gilmore Giris" airs at 7 p.m.CDT Thursdays on the WB, which is a worse problem than even the show's name. This is not about prematurely worldly teenage girls in tight plaid skirts; it just sounds like that. This is about a really smart- but-young mom, her smarter teen daughter — the Gilmores, still kinda girls, get it? — and a bizairrely adorable town. It's the story of Lorelai (Lauren Graham), 32, and her daughter, Rory (Alexis Bledel), 16 — Lorelai had her young; do the math — who Uve in the Connecticut town of Stars Hollow, where there is a festival for everything, wakes for cats and the owner of a greasy-spoon coffee shop is a health nut. Lorelai moved there when she got pregnant and fought with her snooty, old-money parents (Ed Hermann and Kelly .Bishop) who, really, were mostly scared for her. But, anyway, the town became family for the Gilmore girls, and the quaint inn that Lorelai now manages became home with its brilliant but accident-prone chef, its French- accented concierge with all the warmth of a French concierge and its produce supplier who takes great pride in his vegetables. Rory has her sights set on Harvard, Lorelai borrowed money from her parents to send Rory to a prep school and now the older Gilmores want back in the gills' life. What we get is small, sweet stories with no villains, and the conflicts come from well-drawn, if slightly odd characters. If all Digitally Programmable I Hj^^'' this sounds a bit too twee, the writing is clever and furious, and short of "The West Wmg," there's nothing on TV that flies by with such speed and wit. OK, so say you're Lauren Graham and you're on this great show. There's just this one little problem: You're up against a mammoth hit. Nothing less than "Friends." That's been the most popular comedy and the top-rated 8 p.m. series in America for, what, 100 years? Who doesn't watch "Friends"? WB tries to help. It airs an episode recap midway through the show so people switching over from NBC can catch up. That's a good idea because ratings jump almost 30 percent after "Friends." Or they did. In January, CBS waded in. CBS restarted a little number called "Survivor" at 7 p.m. Thursdays, and we got television's biggest war maybe ever. It's tribal councils vs. super-sized "Friends," and the battleships are blazing away while you're just trying not to get swamped. There's all that noise going on while you're trying to tell quiet, smart stories. So what do you do now? "I have no idea," Graham says. "If this were Las Vegas, I'd be going, 'I'm out. I fold. No one beats the house.'" Or what if you're Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator and executive producer of the show. How would you react? "Crying a lot," she says. What does she expect to happen to "Gilmore Girls"? "HEimmered," she says. "KiUed." You know what? No. "Gilmore Girls" survived the February sweeps battles and its ratings have grown steadily — if unspectacularly by the standards of the big networks — to double WB's time slot n\imbers from last year. The WB is showing its faith in the series. It announced "Gilmore Girls" would be renewed for next season. Meanwhile, the network is airing reruns from earlier in the season at on Mondays, and has been trying to run new episodes when the Thursday competition is the softest. At the Warner Bros, studio, which, like the WB network, is owned by AOL-Time Warner, the bosses are lining up to be supportive. "We love this show," Warner Bros. Television president Peter Roth said. "We want to let it grow slowly." lEARINC Hearing Aid //('.;///;( \irc Associad-s 827-8911 l-KOO- iiX-021S S. SaiM;. I.' S.ilil.a OS fiil !
