Don't forget to check out today's LAist interview with Academy Award-winning actor, Timothy Hutton, whose new show, "Leverage", premieres on Sunday @ 10pm on TNT.

Just the other day NBC announced layoffs, now Viacom is planning to lay off 850 people and is implementing a salary freeze for 2009. Adding some whoa to the woes.

We're heading into some really weak TV this month, take what you can get, and this weekend is the getting of John Malkovich! His appearance tonight on Ferguson and tomorrow's "SNL" should be very very funny and weird.
