TV Junkie: Please Write In To Support 'Terriers'; Find Out More About 'Conan'
In tonight's excellent episode of "Terriers" (FX @ 10pm) we take a trip to the past to find out how and why Hank was kicked off the police force. Please write in to email@example.com to let them know you want another season of this great show.
Dear "Terriers" fans, it's time for some action. If you like the show, it's time for you to send a message to FX that you'd like to see the series return for a second season. Please send an email stating your support for "Terriers" to firstname.lastname@example.org - just take 10 seconds and do it now, you'll feel better for doing it. Another excellent episode of "Terriers" airs at 10pm tonight in which we travel to the past to see what it was, exactly, that got Hank canned from the police force.
When we wrote about TBS' launch of "Conan" last week, we mentioned New York Times writer Bill Carter's book The War for Late Night: When Leno Went Early and Television Went Crazy. Carter was interviewed today from 2:30pm-3pm on KCRW by our favorite interviewer, Elvis Mitchell, on "The Treatment". Hopefully the podcast of the interview will be up immediately on "The Treatment" website. Carter himself is a great source of information on late night TV but look to Mitchell to get into some compelling discussions with him.
How do you think "Conan" is going? It was never our impression that O'Brien was going to remake television as we know it, we just wanted him back on TV. If "Conan" isn't what you were expecting, what were you expecting? What could he do better? How does "Conan" rank, in terms of content and performance, compared to: Leno, Letterman, Ferguson, and Fallon?
We've got lots of crazy vid promos for you, from the season finale of "Ugly Americans" (above) to MTV's "The Vice Guide To Everything" (premieres December 6), Comedy Central's "Futurama" holiday special (premieres November 21), and Investigation Discovery's "Hookers: Saved on the Strip" (premieres December 8), all below there's plenty of funny and bizarre programming heading our way.
