"Chuck" fans should know that a fansite is organizing flashmobs in an attempt to save the show this Monday. The cities to be mobbed are (at least): San Diego, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Seattle. Nothing yet planned for LA but if you like the show, spread the word to your friends in the target cities.
As LAist reported earlier this week, Conan O'Brien will be featured in an interview on Sunday's "60 Minutes" (CBS, 7pm). We're not sure what he will be able to say due to his separation agreement with NBC, so don't expect him to give the network the thrashing it deserves - some quotes from the interview are already available here. On a related note, other comedians on TV this weekend will include the multi-talented Mike Birbiglia on Letterman tonight, and "Monty Python" veteran John Cleese on "The Graham Norton Show" this Saturday at 10pm on BBC America.
Last night's "Parks and Recreation" was pretty darn good we thought, NBC sent us embeds of deleted scenes which we've included at the end of this post.
Slow food enthusiasts should set their Tivos to record Monday's "Martha Stewart Show" as Alice Waters and three chefs featured in her latest book, "In the Green Kitchen," appear: spicy collard greens and classic corn muffins with Scott Peacock, healthy spinach and citrus-chard side dishes from Bryant Terry, plus tender Tokyo turnips and garlicky kale crostini with Cal Peternell. Yum! [Monday, NBC, 2pm]
