Tonight's another tough night for picking what to watch: we're going to stick with "The Prisoner" to the end (what do you guys think of this show?), then it's on to "Sons of Anarchy" (since it's already 10pm by that time) but late night is a treat with Vice President Joe Biden on "The Daily Show" followed by nerdist author Malcolm Gladwell and then Ferguson hosts a guest appearance by Woody Harrelson who will be discussing his film The Messenger which we featured here. The competition is still all over ("V", Fellini!, a really good "Frontline", and tons of late night).

HBO has come up with a new trailer for its miniseries "Pacific" which will air in March. Looks like post-production is going well by the look of it (see the clip at the end of this post).

A&E has picked our perennial favorite comedian, Bob Saget, to helm "Bob Saget's Strange Days", an unscripted exploration of American subcultures. The show will air in May of 2010 - congrats Bob!

Congrats also go to the comedy genius that is Chris Elliott who is set to star in the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim offering, "Eagleheart".
