TV Junkie: 'Leverage' Premiere on TNT; Rob Zombie Directs..... 'CSI: Miami'?
"Leverage" season premiere on TNT @ 10pm tonight
We're taking a breather from the NBC/Leno/Conan shenanigans because, as we all know, if an element of pop culture makes it onto NPR, it's already a dead story.
The third season of TNT's "Leverage" premieres tonight at 10pm. Check out our interview with leading man Timothy Hutton just before the series launched last year.
Heads-up: Will Arnett, Amy Poehler's real-life husband, will be guesting on "Parks and Recreation" tomorrow night at 8:30pm on NBC - check out the "P&R = The Wu Tang of Comedy" video at the end of this post. Also, tonight on "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien" the very funny Whitney Cummings will be performing.
Finally a reason to watch "CSI: Miami": Rob Zombie will be directing an episode that will air on March 1st.
"Man vs. Wild" goes to China, at 9pm on Discovery, to subject Bear Grylls to further discomfort - check out our interview with Bear from last Summer.
