Congress wants to talk to Bravo aka NBCUniversal about what they knew prior to the White House "gatecrasher" incident last week featuring "Real Housewives of D.C." contestants Tareq and Michaele Salahi - a question we raised last week here on the TV Junkie.
Tuesday's season finale of "Sons of Anarchy" hit a series record in terms of audience; FX has ordered 13 episodes for season 3, and has put series creator Kurt Sutter in a contract to be showrunner for up to 2 more seasons if the series remains successful. With Sutter at the reins, that's virtually guaranteed - here's our write-up of the finale.
Get this: tonight on BBC America at 10pm they will be running a "documentary" about the effects of binge drinking. They've selected a frequently intoxicated British pseudo-celebrity, Michelle Heaton, to "host" the show. By "host", they mean that she will have to drink at least 60 drinks per week for a month during which time she will be filmed for the program, hence, it's a documentary.
