The Paley Center for Media's PaleyFest2011 starts tonight with "The Walking Dead" - we will be there: follow our tweets and check LAist for pics, interviews, video.
Tonight PaleyFest2011 begins at the Saban Theater and it will run through March 17th. This is a great weekend with AMC's "The Walking Dead" kicking off the festival tonight, followed by HBO's "True Blood" tomorrow. Tickets are still available for many of the nights. If you have questions you'd like us to ask about "The Walking Dead" or "True Blood" tweet them to me at @TheTVJunkie.
A couple days ago we wondered why the heck NBC, et al, went with reruns for Thursday night - it was an invitation for Fox to destroy the competition and they did it, setting a new record for Thursdays with "American Idol" airing unopposed. Even fans of "Idol" (count us as nonmembers of that group) think that this season's "Idol" isn't so great, from performers to the panel of judges, but when nothing else is on, it seems that American viewers trickle over there. We'll mark that as a mistake on the behalf of the networks that aired repeats.
