remjte12:52am: NBC rules network TV...and cable as well.

Monday nigihts: HEREOS, then Studio 60.

HEROES is one of the most original and intriguing shows I've seen EVER. I'm a bit agitated that it doesn't resume for over a month (22 January).

Studio 60 is pure Sorkin. There's a style to Sorkin characters that makes them more human than most TV. This is better than Sports Night. He's grown. This is what if the people in the West Wing moved on to do weekly sketch comedy.

And Fridays on Sci-Fi kick ass. Sci-Fi is an NBC company too. USA still holds some credibility on Fridays. They're NBC too.
CW does well for me on Tuesdays (though I still need House on Fox). Wednesday and Thursday are pretty barren unless I feel like watching Smallville and Supernatural, so that would be another CW. Two nights for NBC, two for CW, 1 show for Fox.

ABC and CBS are basically worthless. Anyone disagree?

remjte4:27am: damn, man. over a dozen people and ain't nobody saying nothin'. (I know. my grammar is fantastic.)

Despite the myriad of rantings I could conceive and pull out of wherever, I'll go simply with this one:

Psych is FANTASTIC. And it REALLY works well following after Monk.

If you didn't see it, it better be because you don't have USA Network or else you suck.

I can hardly think of much else on TV I can be arsed for really, though much of that is due to it being summer. Hell's Kitchen is alright. Most anything else is just repeats waiting for Fall.

oh, and "sucks to your ass-mar" to Rebecca Romijn and her uber-shite "Pepper Dennis". Series Finale. Series? Did they even broadcast a dozen episodes? Did ANYONE watch it?

remjte10:12am: Pinky and the Brain - Brain: 'Pinky, Are You Pondering The DVDs I'm Pondering?'
Posted by David Lambert

Pinky: 'I think so, Brain, but who would buy Small Wonder on DVD?'

Now, now...we're not trying to upset Small Wonder fans. We're just hitting on the wonderful humor that was Pinky and the Brain, that wonderful cartoon twosome that tried to take over the world on a regular basis. Fans of the show have been pondering as to when these cartoons would come to DVD, along with the show it spun off of, Animaniacs.

We've got great news for you, then! Industry sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, have let us know that Warner Home Video has both of these animated series on their radar screen for a possible mid-2006 DVD release! Look for a multi-disc set for each show, with around two dozen episodes per box.

This info is very very early, mind you, so don't count your worlds until they're taken over. Stay tuned, and we'll get back to you once the secret plans have been revealed!

remjte11:34pm: Screwed up last night. Meant to tape Kitchen Confidential but I didn't get it.
The thing is, I'm not too bothered by missing it. $20 says I don't make much attempt to see it again. It's hardly a priority.

Tonight.
Taped House while I watched the premiere of "Commander In Chief".

Some cheap shots taken at right-wing politicos were evened out by much speakd of "Mrs. Clinton..." followed "people didn't like that."

Still, it's more of your typical ABC drama that just happens to be set in Washington with characters holding elected office. It's almost like the people behind Boston Legal took a stab at writing an episode of West Wing and this is what they came up with. It's definitely not West Wing. Then again, since losing Sorkin and Schlamme, West Wing isn't really West Wing either. ( I still like it, I still watch it, but it's not the same).

remjte8:43pm: Kitchen Confidential
It's a combination of funny and "what??".

If you've even watched television in the last 3-5 years, you'll recognize something around a half-dozen people in this show. One was on Jack & Bobby, one was on Buffy, one had his own short-lived WB crap-fest, one, I think, is a kid from Freak & Geeks (now older, of course), and even the former "Sharona" from Monk is in this one (I'm actually GLAD she left Monk, quite honestly; it's better without her).

Checked IMDB.com. This show is directed by Fred Savage.

Weird.

Just curious if anyone else watches "Criss Angel: Mindfreak" on A&E.

I've always been a sucker for magic and the sort. I've seen him levitate people, set himself on fire, escape from a suspended barrel, support an SUV while on top of nails...crazy stuff.

Saw a commercial for the next episode, he takes a drive in Mandy Moore's car while she rides shotgun and he's completely blindfolded.

_guy_incognito3:39pm: wonder showzen
Anyone watch this show? I DVRed a couple episodes based on a random recommendation and I have to say it's one of the most randomly funny, bizarre and mildly disturbing shows I've ever seen.

It's a kid show, sort of...it's in the format of a kid show, but you should be committed if you actually let a kid watch it. It's hard to describe beyond that. I mean, with topics like Mother Nature getting a sex change or having a kid dress up as Hitler and asking random people on the street "What's wrong with kids today?" it's not your ordinary show. It airs on MTV2, but don't let that stop you from watching it. I think it's worth checking out.

remjte4:42am: Rambling thoughts
Seriously...Robot Chicken is one of THE coolest shows EVER. I just have to say that.

Tonight I saw two hot actresses on different chat shows. Elisha Cuthbert was on Letterman and Jennifer Morrison was on Kimmel. Each was disappointing, but for different reasons.

Jennifer was a band geek in school. Except she was also a cheerleader, so she wasn't so geeky. And she was on the cover of Sports Illustrated for Kids with Michael Jordan when she was young. No talk of her early acting career though. The troubling part is, she graduated from high school in 1997. That's only troubling to me because I graduated in 1996. This makes her my age or slightly younger. Wasn't expecting that. AT ALL.

Elisha...what can I say...she's a female Ashton Kutcher. Seriously, Pamela Anderson comes off as an intellectual compared to this one. It was like listening to some idiot teenage girl throughout a day in high school.

On the up side, Veronica Mars has been picked up for a second season and season one will be out on DVD this fall. The former I got from TV Guide, the latter is found here: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=3351

remjte2:54am: West Wing kicks ASS
Yeah, look, we're not dead here...not really.

I watched the season finale of West Wing Wednesday.

HOLY SHIT.

I can't even begin to tell you how into it I was. That "chaos" over the 3 candidates at the convention, and then 4...THAT'S how conventions are SUPPOSED to be. THAT'S how you get anywhere.

And the end, a Santos-McGarry ticket, seriously, I was almost to tears I was so excited. This show has life again.

Doesn't that almost make it certain it'll be Jimmy Smits as President Santos? And how much of the Bartlet staff will he have on by having Leo as the VP? Keep in mind, Alan Alda as Vinnick has introduced Patricia Richardson and Stephen Root as two of his aides.

OH...and the kids will love this http://www.tvshowsondvd.com
you can get news and release dates for what shows come out when AND vote to let SOMEONE know "hey, I'd like to have THAT show on DVD"

Just look at what DVD has done for TV...freakin' Greatest American Hero is out now. I haven't seen that show in close to 20 years.

Season One of Scrubs is coming out soon, and Season Four of Seinfeld, One and Two together for NewsRadio...it keeps getting better.
