TV Junkie: 'South Park' Premiere; 'Monday Night Football' Packs Them In
"South Park" returns for a new season tonight and if you've got Xbox, they're launching a "South Park" game today as well. Season 13 will feature a hidden alien in each episode and if you find them all, you can enter to be a "South Park Citizen" and have your animated countenance to appear in a Season 14 episode.
We mentioned yesterday that David Letterman's Monday night broadcast took NBC for a tumble but let's give "Monday Night Football" some props as the Vikings-Packers game was the most watched program in cable history with almost 22 million viewers.
We were happy to learn that HBO's "Bored to Death" has already been picked up for another season and we were even happier to learn about a series of conversations with comedians called "Behind the Green Room Door" will be making it to Showtime in 2010. The show was shot at The Vanguard in Hollywood and features the likes of Jonathan Winters, Eddie Izzard, Robert Klein and Penn Jillette among others.
The LA Times reports that dog-torturer-and-killer Michael Vick will be further punished by being given his own reality series on BET. Whoops, we meant that we were getting further punished. Don't expect to find any updates on that show or its content in this column.
The TV Junkie Plan: "The New Adventures of Old Christine", "Modern Family", "South Park", "Secret Girlfriend", Kimmel.
