Last week we made several connections between comics/comedy writers who podcast and potential new TV shows in this post. One of the comedians we profiled, Greg Fitzsimmons, invited us to do his FitzDogRadio podcast the morning before we headed to cover the Golden Globes - that podcast is now live and we're listening to it as we're writing this post - please check it out.

Speaking of podcasts, our most recent edition of the Channel Zero podcast is up and now available (be sure to get today's episode). Listen to us bitch about setting up an interview with Joan Rivers (who has a new show premiering tonight at 9pm on WeTV), as well as a summary of what to look for on TV this week, humorous anecdotes from the TCAs, and other funny stuff.

Notice: Because of tonight's State of the Union Address programming schedules of your favorite program may have changed, for example, there is no new episode of "V" on ABC tonight. Please check the listings.
