There's only three weeks to go until the Super Bowl and NBC still has to sell some ads so they're looking to the movie studios to fill up the remaining (10%) of slots. So what we're saying is that at least 1 out of 10 ads will be for a movie, with all the ads adding up to over $200 million for NBC.

Did anyone watch the 2-part "24" premiere? What'd you think?

Kind of a slow night, you got what's in the plan (below), "American Idol", or the horrors of stuff like "Real Housewives of Orange County" (pictured above). Primetime movie choices on TCM, HBO, etc. have been abysmal lately.

The TV Junkie Plan: "Dirty Jobs", "Nip/Tuck", Leno (Mickey Rourke), Kimmel (Malcolm Gladwell)
