It used to be that Hulu.com was a perfectly predictable place where you could go and catch up on episodes of "30 Rock" that you may have missed when they aired. Lately, however, the company has been expanding into original programming, and it will be announcing other new shows this week at a TV industry event referred to as "upfronts." By creating original content as well as continuing to work with its TV network owners, Hulu is trying to carve out a brand new space and be something no one has ever seen before. Plus, we recover from the Gmail outage.
