Weekend EditionABC has announced the launch of an app for the iPad for viewing of their programming. This was after the iPad received some prime placement in Wednesday's episode of "Modern Family", not that it wasn't skillfully and appropriately done. David Letterman fooling around with the iPad on his show last night was definitely less than ideal for Apple.
Check out The Pitch published earlier today, featuring Brad White, creator of "Stargate Universe" which premieres tonight at 9pm on Syfy.
Who else really enjoyed last night's "Fringe"? We're loving that John Noble's Dr. Walter Bishop is becoming the focus of the show because, really, the show really is about him. Keep it up!
"SNL" is a repeat this weekend but starting on Saturday, April 10, the guest hosts will be Tina Fey, Ryan Phillippe and Gabourey Sidibe. The musical guests, respectively, are Justin Bieber, and MGMT.
It wasn't even a couple months ago that Charlie Sheen was in rehab and we had readers telling us that there was no way that CBS would let go of their cash cow, "Two and a Half Men". Well, it looks like Sheen is making the decision to quit the show as his contract will be up at the end of this season. So much for 15 million viewers per episode. Now let's see CBS put that money and time slot to good use.
Major League Baseball will be broadcasting Sunday's Yankees/Red Sox opener live in China for the first time to a new audience of up to 300 million people. We guess we should be happy that we'll be able to see a summary of the Tour of Flanderson Sunday at 2pm on Versus which isn't quite like watching it live, is it? We're confused as to whether that is a First World problem or not.
We've got a couple of Sunday's clips from Discovery Channel's "LIFE" at the end of the post, check 'em out and try to see the broadcasts at 8pm and 9pm on HD, it's impressive.
The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "X-Play", "Stargate Universe", "Friday Night With Jonathan Ross", Letterman (Nathan Lane), Fallon (Liquid Liquid performs!!). Saturday - Basketball, "Serpico". Sunday - "Tour of Flanders", "LIFE" x 2, "Breaking Bad"
