TV Junkie: NEW New New Episodes of: "Ugly Betty"/"The Office"/"30 Rock"/Etc.; Don't Forget to Watch the Swan Song Episodes of "The O.C." Starting Tonight
A Word or 82:
The long drought is over my friends -- regular programming is back, we have new shows and new series coming on every day. My life has some purpose again. My thumb was blistered from almost 2 weeks of endlessly scrolling through channel after channel of repeats and other unwatchable TV - I had almost depleted my tin of Bag Balm. Thank you TV, thank you networks, I may have said some harsh things last week but it was the blackberry brandy talkin', I swear.
