TV Junkie: 'The Office' Baby Episode Airs Tonight; Start Making Oscar Plans
Tonight's long awaited episode of "The Office", featuring the birth of Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly's baby is an hour-long special that will air at 9pm on NBC
Don't forget to check out our video of last night's PaleyFest2010 which was "Community". Tonight's episode (8pm on NBC), which was screened at PaleyFest2010, is hilarious and features a lot of nudity including some of a depilated and sculpted Joel McHale - shocking and/or controversial to some, yet highly desired by others.
There's a lot of hype about tonight's hour long episode of "The Office" which will feature the birth of characters Jim and Pam's baby. Melora Hardin, who plays Jan Levinson, Michael Scott's ex-girlfriend, offers up some insight over at Predicto.com (where a poll states that most obviously sexist viewers would prefer the baby to be a girl).
There's a lot of folks gearing up with Oscar coverage this week: last night we had Oprah's special: tonight we will have Tavis Smiley's PBS-take on the Oscars: Barbara Walters' final "The Barbara Walters Special" will air on ABC at 7pm on Sunday; LocateTV has a web page of Oscar "Fun Facts"; and on Sunday itself look for red carpet coverage from E! starting from 11am(!!!) to 5pm with pre-red carpet and red carpet, then from 8-10pm with multiple post-Oscar parties, the TV Guide Network and Access Hollywood start coverage at 3pm, and the actual broadcast of the awards starting at 5:30pm on ABC. Among other locations, we will be at the E! afterparty at the W in Hollywood, feel free to follow us on Twitter as well as our posts here.Elements of the broadcast are already controversial: 10 nominees in each category, 2 hosts (Steve Martin & Alec Baldwin), musicians and composers choosing not to attend and their nominated songs not being played, and now a sketch by Sacha Baron Cohen has been cut allegedly to spare James Cameron's feelings.
Don't forget we will be covering the 2010 Independent Spirit Film Awards for you live on Friday night, starting at 8pm, watch the broadcast on IFC, hosted by Eddie Izzard.
