Senator Barack Obama's Wednesday night appearance on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" scored the show's biggest audience ever. Let's see what tonight's appearance by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin does for ABC's "20/20" as well as tomorrow night's Senator John McCain cameo effect on NBC's "Saturday Night Live".

Some good music tonight on late night TV. Sunday brings the season finale of HBO's "Little Britain: USA" (pictured right).

The TV Junkie Plan:
Tonight - various flicks on TCM, "20/20" (more Palin porn), Letterman, Ferguson; Saturday - "America's Most Wanted" (The Grim Sleeper!), "SNL"; Sunday - "True Blood" (can't get enough Halloween), "Dexter" (might switch over to "Little Britain" or definitely watch it On Demand)
