Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James star in FX's "Terriers" on FX tonight at 10pm
For those of you who watched election coverage - who did you watch? EvidentlyNBC and ABC were the top winners in viewers with CBS next in line and Fox trailing. We watched everything that we could including some of the crazy gadgets on CNN (crazy wall-sized iPads, etc.) but we have to say we were more than a little disappointed by Comedy Central's offerings. It's understandable that the network might be a bit low-key after Saturday's rally in Washington D.C. but the coverage was inaccurate to a fault (Stewart urged viewers to "check out a news organization" for that kind of stuff) and the writing and guests just seemed to be a bit off. They should have done the dual-hosting of Stewart and Colbert as that would have made for a more energetic show but even that wasn't in the cards.
Please please please check out our in-depth interview with Donal Logue of FX's "Terriers". He kindly answered many questions and provided so much insight on this great show as well as what motivates him as an actor. "Terriers" is on FX at 10pm tonight, and will continue the thread featuring Logue's character, Hank Dolworth, recovering from a gunshot wound he received in last week's excellent episode.
