FROM THIS EPISODE

It's pilot season in Hollywood. We get a window into the process by which an idea goes from pitch, to pilot, to series by looking at one show that successfully navigated the journey last year-- the ABC comedy, Suburgatory. We visit the set to talk with show creator Emily Kapnek and Suburgatory stars Jeremy Sisto and Cheryl HinesSaul Gonzalez guest hosts.

Today's Banter Topics:
- Steven Spielberg's Bad Week: In TV, Terra Nova canceled, numbers down for Smash and The River. Plus, in film, grim expectations for Dreamworks' Eddie Murphy film, A Thousand Words
- Documentary Bully gets R-Rating which generates controversy – again -- over the MPAA's policy on language versus sex and violence
- Michigan customer sues movie theaters over high concession prices
