TV Junkie: '30 Rock' Goes Live Tonight + More News & Picks for Tonight
Please check out our interview with "CSI" creator Anthony Zuiker posted earlier today. There will be an extremely special multi-platform crossover episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" tonight (8:55pm on CBS). Even if you're not a fan-person of the show, his ideas are very interesting.
We might just miss the first 5 minutes of "CSI" to finish watching the LIVE broadcast of NBC's "30 Rock" (8:30pm). The cast will do the show twice, once for the East Coast/Central and once for the West Coast. It's ambitious but not like it hasn't been done before: "Scrubs" and "ER" both did it, plus some others. But we're talking about old pros here like Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan who did this weekly for years on "SNL". What will be interesting is to see how the rest of the cast handles the experience, from Alec Baldwin to guest star Matt Damon. What's encouraging is that Fey and the producers plan to do more of these. Check out the rehearsal vid at the end of this post.There is always something exciting about a live show, so we're looking forward to this. Check out the odds that Bookmaker.com made for various potential screw-ups or plot points in the live broadcast (at the end of this post).
