UPDATEDIt's still possible, if not probable, that if you have Time Warner cable, you will lose your FOX stations at 12:01am this Friday as the network and cable provider have not reached an agreement on the per subscriber reimbursement fee. FOX wants up to 50% more per subscriber compared to the other major networks fees and Time Warner isn't happy about that. Unless you want your fee to get a non-significant hike, you shouldn't be happy about it either. With less than 4 days to go, do you think they will work things out?

On a related note: the LA Times has an article about Southland viewers that have chosen rabbit ears over cable and satellite, finding many more channels available via antenna than even just a few years ago.

In terms of new programming this week tonight's broadcast of "Men of a Certain Age" is the way to go because: A. it's an excellent show, and B. virtually no other new programming is happening for at least another week. Nothing stunning is happening in terms of New Years' Eve/Day shows. Daily TV Junkie posts will resume next week.
