Flight of the Conchords on HBO Sunday

A lot of programs return to or make their premiere on premium cable this Sunday including: "Big Love", "The L Word", "The United States of Tara", and "Secret Diary of a Call Girl". What we most eagerly anticipate is the season premiere of "Flight of the Conchords". The pair of musicians and their hapless manager, all hailing from New Zealand, might not have made a second season due to low viewership but their cult like following gave us one more. So enjoy every episode like a smooth New Zealand Merlot, savor it, because this might be their last run, on HBO at least.

Fans of "The Office" and "30 Rock" can breathe a sigh of relief as Mediaweek reports that those shows, among others, have been renewed by NBC for the 2009-2010 season.Even more weird is that Amy Poehler's new show will start on April 9th and it still doesn't have a title.

The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "Battlestar Galactica", "The Soup", Letterman, Ferguson; Saturday - "SNL"; Sunday - "Big Love", "Flight of the Conchords", "Secret Diary of a Call Girl"
