TV Junkie: SNL-Alum Al Franken Wins Senate Seat; SAG Strike Yea/Nay?

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

The TV Junkie says "welcome back" to you all, to a new year and a new "Winter Season" of TV. Premieres we are looking forward to this month are "Nip/Tuck" (FX 1/6), "Damages" (FX 1/7), "24" (Fox 1/11), "Battlestar Galactica" (SciFi 1/16), "Big Love" (HBO 1/18), and "Lost" (ABC 1/21). In terms of TV news there's not an incredible lot to report other than "SNL"-alum Al Franken winning a Senate seat (woot!) and the never-ending SAG-strike drama (will they/won't they? Go fish or chop bait yo). Do you have any TV news items to share with us? Do you think the SAG should strike?

The TV Junkie Plan: "Top Gear", "The Story of India", Letterman, Conan.

8:00pm Top Gear BBC America - Jeremy races the Nissan GT-R against Japan's ultra-efficient public transport.

8:00pm Gossip Girl The CW - Season Premiere. Uncle Jack Bass arrives in town to try and help Chuck pick up the pieces.
