Perhaps it's because of the NCAA final, but it seems like there isn't a heck of a lot of TV news to report, all of late night TV tonight is repeats and no one has given us any cool leaks lately. Do you have the inside scoop on some TV tidbits? Other than former "Charlie's Angels" angel Farrah Fawcette's cancer spreading, of course.We know we're going to have a FOX-heavy early part of the evening and then we're calling it a night unless you can point us to something better.

Boston's WHDH might be reconsidering its announcement to not run Jay Leno's new 10pm talkshow after NBC corporate put the hammer down, threatening to strip the affiliate of all NBC programming. Perhaps WHDH was hoping for an upswell of fellow affiliates that would opt-out of carrying Leno's show and it didn't materialize. At any rate, this story isn't over yet.
