The Supreme Court led the country down a hypocritical and fascist path with today's ruling on the live broadcast of expletives. We wonder if the conservative members of the court would have ruled differently if Vice President Dick Cheney's utterance of "Go fuck yourself" to Senator Patrick Leahy in 2004 was captured live by C-SPAN.

Undisguised partisanship rears its head over at FOX, again: the network is refusing to air President Obama's press conference tomorrow night. Now will the neo-conservative pundits attack all the networks that air the press conference as "Pro Obama"? Our bet is that they will, golly they are so sophisticated.

We know that FOX's "Fringe" is designed to appeal to our inner longing for the return of "The X Files" but we are finding ourselves genuinely loving John Noble's presentation of the perversely funny Dr. Walter Bishop. If there was something we were waiting for tonight, this is it and if there's someone we want to interview for TV Junkie, it's John Noble.

Congrats to Bravo for it's best April ever in terms of viewership. Strange to us that "The Real Housewives of New York City", "The Millionaire Matchmaker" , and "Make Me A Supermodel" can fuel that kind of growth during these times but evidently a lot of people we know are watching these shows without copping to it.The TV Junkie: "Attack of the Show", "Fringe", "My Boys", late night TV is a total toss up - great guests on every show so check out the full listings.
