What's all this about Jeremy Piven dropping out of David Mamet's Broadway play, "Speed-the-Plow" due to a high mercury count from eating too much sushi? Mamet expressed doubts about the diagnosis.

The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "Dateline NBC", Letterman, Conan; Saturday - spend time with your family; Sunday - "Brotherhood", "Skins"
