TV Junkie: Elvis Costello & Springsteen on Sundance; 'Reno 911!' Creators Get NBC Gig
The TV schedule is starting to fill up (check out tonight's 10pm slot, it's out of control!) but there doesn't seem to be a lot there though. Last night's "Better Off Ted" was excellent (ABC, why are you killing this show? Are you really going through with it?) and USA's season premiere of "White Collar" started out very strong - we continue to be impressed by this show's fan base. Give us your highlights from last night's TV.If you get Sundance, you definitely should be watching tonight's Part I of Elvis Costello's "Spectacle" with Bruce Springsteen at 10pm - we've seen it and it's fantastic! "Spectacle" is pretty much the only in-depth music show on television and we wish it ran year-round. Look for our other picks in The Plan below.
With Jay Leno leaving the 10pm slot open, NBC has a lot of hours to fill and they're filling some of them with with "The Strip", an offering from the incredible Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, of "Reno 911!" fame, we're definitely interested.
