Perhaps you forgot that Michael Jackson died earlier this year but A&E certainly didn't, they've launched a web app that let's you watch Jackson 5 clips and dedicate/send them to friends via Facebook, Twitter, or email - check it out at "The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty".
A few weeks ago we told you about the Weather Channel's "Guaranteed White Christmas" contest - looks like they picked a winner: resident of the Florida Keys, six-year-old Michael, whose video wish for snow will wake up with his family to a yard full of snow and live broadcasts by The Weather Channel on Christmas morning. The Weather channel will air a special on it tonight at 8:30pm. It could have been you LA but it looks like you'll get mudslides instead.
If you missed James Cameron on G4's "Attack of the Show" last night, be sure to check out the clip at the end of the post - nitty gritty on Avatar.
This weekend's viewing options are kind of wanky, tonight is the "Crash" finale (if you even have the Starz network) or "The Soup" (please sir, may I have some more?), tomorrow has a lot of Doctor Who stuff on the BBC America followed by "SNL" hosted by some guy named James Franco, and Sunday is capped off by the Hobson's Choice of either the Kardashians being Kardashians or watching Snoop discuss sports on Versus.
The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "Dollhouse", "The Soup", Letterman, Ferguson. Saturday - George Washington Slept Here, "Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars", "SNL". Sunday - "Survivor: Samoa".
