TV Junkie: FOX Finales & Comedy Central Premieres
Tonight: There's some finales tonight in primetime ("Bones", "Fringe") that happen during NBC's two-hours-of-comedy-power. Bear in mind that pretty much all NBC programming will be going on hiatus starting the 12th once the Winter Olympics get going. If you don't watch any of the above programs, tell us what you watch on Thursday nights. Note the premieres of Demetri Martin and Sarah Silverman's shows on Comedy Central starting at 10pm.
Do you have a favorite "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" character? Disney is holding a poll at the "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" Facebook fan page so get your votes in there. We like Donald Duck for his cathartic outbursts of anger. Other Disney news: Disney is beginning production on "Jake and the Never Land Pirates", a new interactive 2-D and CG animated series for preschoolers will feature classic characters Captain Hook and Smee. Also, the third season of Playhouse Disney’s hit series “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” will premiere Saturday, Feb. 27 (9:00 a.m. ET/PT) on Disney Channel.
Greenlight: Sarah Chalke aka Dr. Elliot Reid from "Scrubs" will star in an Arianna Huffington produced sitcom for ABC and "Daily Show"-alum Rob Riggle leads "Team Spitz" for CBS (see our brief interview w/Rob from last year). Gary Cole aka Lumberg from Office Space will star in an hour-long comedy for TBS called "Uncle Nigel" - no idea when these will air but good to see things are happening in comedyland.
The TV Junkie Plan: @aots, "Community", "Parks and Recreation", "The Office", "30 Rock", "Important Things with Demetri Martin", "The Sarah Silverman Program", "Chelsea Lately", Letterman, Fallon (Hot Chip performs).
