Party Photos: Celebrating The Holidays With Mediabistro

holiday party.jpgLast night, mediabistro.com kicked off the holiday party season with its own candy cane maritini-soaked shindig. We got to Tribeca Cinemas early, commandeered a big bowl of popcorn and snagged a spot at the bar, where we could get a good view of the party-goers on their way in.

Some of our fellow bloggers were also in attendance, in addition the event’s bubbly hostess, mediabistro.com’s senior editor Donya Blaze (left). TVNewser editors Chris Ariens and Kevin Allocca, as well as GalleyCat editor Jason Boog, were all there, mixing and mingling with the crowd.

Celebrating The Launch Of WNBC’s New Local Lifestyle Show

lx logo.jpgOn Monday night, we headed west to Hudson Terrace to join the festivities celebrating the launch of WNBC‘s new afternoon live local lifestyle show, “LX New York.”

The show debuted live on channel 4 at 5pm on Monday, with senior vice president of LX.TV Morgan Hertzan and on-air talent Sara Gore, Siafa Lewis, Michael Flocker, George Oliphant and Maria Sansone heading over to the party afterward to celebrate and sip Absolut cocktails on the open air roof deck.

Hertzan told us that he thought the first show went on without a hitch, even though launching a live show is always nerve-wracking. “Live is the only way to go,” he said.

We also learned that Gore, who appeared on “Today” Monday morning to promote “LX New York,” was a chef before she became the bubbly host that we know her to be today. When we asked her where she got the recipe for the steak she cooked with Al Roker that morning, she boasted, “It’s mine!” (Check out the video below.)

So what did Gore, who now hosts three LX.TV lifestyle shows, think of the “LX New York” premiere episode?

“There were a few things I wish had gone more smoothly,” she said. “But it was the first show and it was live, and now we know what we can work on.”

Also spotted in the crowd, Olivia Metzger of talent agency CAA and two former TVNewser editors, The New York TimesBrian Stelter and Mediaite.com TV editor Steve Krakauer.

Mediaite Launches To Server-Crashing Traffic

mediaite.pngThe hotly anticipated Mediaite.com, the media blog brainchild of consulting company Abrams Research, launched early this morning. The site, which has sections for TV, online and print media news and criticism in addition to columns from media heavy weights like former Us Weekly and Star editor-in-chief Bonnie Fuller and ex-Portfolio deputy editor Jim Impoco, was quickly inundated with readers furiously clicking — consequently giving visitors some viewing problems. (We couldn’t load the site while we were writing this post, although we got a glimpse earlier in the day.)

“We were getting an overload in simultaneous users trying to access the site,” explained Senior Editor Glynnis MacNicol, noting that problems started happening around 9 a.m. around the time people started getting to work. “While we were prepared for heavy traffic and had a back up CDN, we still managed to overload. Things are running right now, but slow for certain people. I think it also had to do with the type of traffic [we were getting]. People were flying around the site, spending [more time] and clicking on more pages.” They are working to correct the problems right now, MacNicol added.

Once visitors can access the site problem-free, the biggest draw to Mediaite will undoubtedly be its rankings of media pros. The ranks are broken down into categories: television anchors/hosts, TV reporters, media moguls, “TV Titans,” magazine editors, TV pundits, newspaper/online editors, radio hosts, TV execs, print/online reporters, print/online editors and “Magazine Titans.” Members of each group are ranked based on various factors such as ratings of their shows or circulation of their magazines, number of Twitter followers and the amount of “Buzz” on blogs or in print.
