Weekend EditionThe prediction that TV was fading into the fog of yesteryear as a medium seems to not be true (for the moment). Overall viewership of TV is up by 4% and the departure of the coveted 18-49 demographic seems to have been arrested. The Hollywood Reporter offers a breakdown, network by network.
On Wednesday we discussed FX's drama offerings and today Variety has a long piece on how FX is competing directly with its parent, FOX, in this category.
Let's hope that the Angels disrupt programming for a few more days at least! In the meantime we have a lot of choices tonight but definitely check out "White Collar" (after watching our interviews from earlier this morning). Tonight also marks the final segment of IFC's excellent Monty Python documentary - a very worthy 6 hours of TV it was. Saturday looks bleak and Sunday has its usual too-much good stuff, too-little-time traffic jam. Have a great weekend! As usual, we appreciate your comments and please check out the full listings.

The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer's Cut)", "White Collar", Kimmel. Saturday - Milk. Sunday - "Amazing Race 15", "Dexter", "Mad Men".


9:00pm Dollhouse FOX - Belonging Sierra's connection to Rossum Corp. leads to murder and obsession.
