Shark Week!!The incredible comedian Louis C.K. will have a recurring role on NBC's "Parks and Recreation" starting with the second episode airing this Fall. This makes the season a must-watch!
ABC's "At the Movies" is dumping their Benjamins in order to get hosts with journalistic pedigrees back on the show. Co-hosts Ben Lyons and Ben Mankiewicz were regarded as lightweights in a glitzed up version of the long-running series. Film critics A.O. Scott of The New York Times and Michael Phillips of The Chicago Tribune will helm the show starting in September.
We're psyched that Chris Kattan's "Bollywood Hero" hits the air tonight, finally, with very few alternatives: Meet Me in St. Louis, "The Daily Show", and "The Colber(t) Repor(t)".

The TV Junkie Plan: "Perfect Predators", "Burn Notice", "Bollywood Hero", Conan, Ferguson.
