True confessions time: Every Friday afternoon, I spend at least a half-hour trolling the Web looking for an excuse to write about ABC’s Sunday-night delight, Brothers & Sisters. Usually, I come away empty-pawed, which means Annie Barrett and I are forced to get creative and work it into our Weekend To-Do List theme. Today, however, it’s a different story, because (WOOT!) Smith Jerrod is gonna be Kevin’s new boyfriend!!! Wait, that came out wrong, not to mention vaguely unprofessional. Let me try again.

TV Guide‘s Michael Ausiello reports that Sex and the City hunk Jason Lewis has been cast on Brothers & Sisters as “a closeted soap actor (as if!) who ‘befriends’ Kevin (Matthew Rhys) at an exercise boot camp.” (Better?) Now, I’m not sure I even want to know what an “exercise boot camp” is, let alone see one brought to life on my favorite guilty-pleasure drama, but I do know Lewis is gonna have to bring the chemistry if he wants me to forget adorable caterer Scotty (Luke MacFarlane). I mean, I’m not sure I’m ready to see Kevin and Scotty’s upstairs-downstairs romance die yet, are you? And if you feel yourself glazing over reading this, then for cryin’ out loud, watch B&S at 10 p.m., Sunday, on ABC. Then we can all operate on the same wavelength. Thank you.
