Did anyone have a chance to watch the "We Are One" inaugural gala on HBO yesterday? Some of it interesting, some of it schmaltzy, not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

Where to watch the inauguration ceremony tomorrow? Gigaom has a list of viewing spots both on TV and online. The ceremony and related activities go from 8:30am-11:00am Pacific. Our recommendation is to check out C-SPAN, CBS, and MSNBC. Some outlets will have coverage from 5:00am-8:00pm Pacific - whoa crazy!

The TV Junkie Plan: "How I Met Your Mother", "24", (2nd hour of) "The Story of India", Leno (Jimmy Fallon is on and I want to hear what he says about hosting "Late Night"), Conan (Q-Tip's on!)
