definitely too warm on mine...  but that should be an easy fix...  go 
for the skin tones, of course but you know that!

Looks like the lighting guy overdid the "surprise pink" a bit...

But from a "getting the shots" angle, they are spot on!  Nice work!

Some of the leaning to red may be intentional stage wise though - 
tungston lit interiors, etc... so you might not
want to do what would be a standard correction otherwise.
