PASADENA, Calif. – What do Julia Roberts, Lena Dunham and the Puppy Bowl have in common?

Heck, why stop there. Throw in Kristen Wiig, Matthew McConaughey, Heather Graham, Chloe Sevigny, Jim Parsons, John Oliver and Deion Sanders. What connects them all?

Day 1 of the Winter 2014 Television Critics Association tour at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif.

It’s always a whirlwind at TCA when the event begins with cable panels. Networks presenting include everything from HBO to Discovery to Lifetime to A&E to OWN to Animal Planet.

I’m probably most looking forward to the sessions for the new HBO series True Detective, with McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, and Girls, with Dunham and the entire cast. True Detective debuts and Girls returns Sunday on The Movie Network in Eastern Canada, and Monday on Movie Central in Western Canada.
