TV Junkie: 'Sons of Anarchy' Premiere; 'SNL' Player Comes to LA
"Sons of Anarchy" season premiere on FX @ 10pm
There's been an unreasonable amount of hype regarding the re-launch of "Melrose Place" so we won't add more fuel to the fire because the best thing happening tonight is the season premiere of "Sons of Anarchy" on FX at 10pm. We had the chance to talk to series creator Kurt Sutter with his wife and series star Katey Sagal, at the TV Land Awards - be sure to watch the video at the end of this post.
While we applauded the addition of a couple more female players to SNL, it has meant the departure of two: Michaela Watkins and Casey Wilson. We met Wilson right after she joined SNL a year and a half ago and she was very sweet and we always thought she was great on the show. Lucky for LA, she will be joining the Hollywood Upright Citizens Brigade on September 24. We hope to see them on TV again very soon.The TV Junkie Plan: "Swords: Life on the Line", "Shaq Vs. Oscar De La Hoya", "Sons of Anarchy" (or "Tour of Missouri"), Letterman, Ferguson.
