The annual Paley Fest, put on by the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles, is a great opportunity to catch screenings and panels with the cast and crew of what’s usually an interesting selection of TV series. (Last year’s panels included “Friday Night Lights” and one where Judd Apatow talked about his career from “Freaks and Geeks” to Knocked Up.) The Paley Fest can also always be counted on to include some genuinely terrible series in its panel lineup, but there’s no kind of scholarly curiosity involved; the Paley folks just wanna ride what’s hot.

Anyway, they’ve just announced this year’s panels, and while I cannot begin to express my disappointment that “The Hills” made the cut — unless it’s so that the show’s stars can be gathered in one place and summarily executed — some of the panels look worth attending. I, for one, have my eye on the final episodes of “Pushing Daisies,” the look at “Caprica,” and the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” crew. Tickets go on sale to the public March 1. All screenings are at the Arclight Hollywood:
