New York’s biggest players gathered at the Four Seasons for The Hollywood Reporter‘s 35 Most Powerful People in New York Media party on Wednesday night.
Among those in attendance were Anna Wintour, Danny Strong, Katie Couric and Megyn Kelly, as well as other notable media elite.
To fit the theme of THR‘s annual New York Issue, attendees were asked which New York-based film or television show they would want to live in if granted the opportunity.
Joy Behar and Dan Abrams chose Seinfeld, though Abrams was quick to clarify that he’d simply want to pay a visit. “I don’t know that I’d want to live there,” he said. “But I’d like to visit and say hi and then leave.”
Good Morning America‘s Ginger Zee and Ann Coulter admitted their desire to the join the ranks of the prep school students in Gossip Girl, while Carol Alt shared a more personal reason for going with CBS’ Blue Bloods. “We’re firemen and policemen,” Alt said of her family. “We’re all civil servants, so I understand that mentality. I could survive there.”
Matthew Blank and Megyn Kelly showed a liking for Don Draper, naming AMC’s Mad Men as the show they’d most want to live in. “Only because I think the clothes are so awesome,” Kelly noted. “But I don’t really want to go back to a time where they’re commenting on your boobs at your business meetings — maybe just introduce myself to Don Draper, tell him he’s a cad but I love watching him and have a cocktail and move along.”
Girls (which Martha Stewart mentioned she would “fit really right in with”), Friends (chosen by Couric) and The Sopranos were other popular series named by partygoers.
