TV Junkie: Dick Cavett on Tonight's 'Bored To Death'; #Boardwalk's Thompson Brothers

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

That was an impressive episode of "Boardwalk Empire" last night. A year ago at the series premiere I talked to Shea Wigham who plays Nucky's brother Sheriff Elias 'Eli' Thompson (see the above video clip) and I zoomed in on how important the brothers' relationship was to the series, perhaps even being the focus of the series. That relationship was certainly what last night's episode was all about - if you haven't seen it yet go check it out before someone spoils it for you.
"Bored To Death" will guest star Dick Cavett tonight and he's hilarious - HBO is hooking viewers up with Cavett as he provides live commentary as the episode airs at 6pm Pacific. I can't wait to see what he has to say about participating in this great show.
A lot of people seem to have enjoyed "Once Upon A Time" last night - what's your opinion? Perhaps there's now something to watch on the broadcast networks in early Sunday primetime.
After last night's fingernail-biting episode of "The Walking Dead" I suggest you read this interview with the lovely Sarah Wayne Callies aka Lori Grimes, who had an exceptional performance.
New Show News: ABC is in the process of buying a comedy based on Michael Lewis' Home Game: An Accidental Guide To Fatherhood which will be co-penned by the incredibly funny Robert Sheridan. This could be another breakout family comedy for ABC. | Jimmy Fallon's production company, Holiday Road, has sold 3 scripts to NBC. The writers of these scripts are all under the NBC umbrella, coming from either "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," "The Office," or "Saturday Night Live." This is either good business as Fallon and his crew know these guys from years of working with them or it's bad business because this is too insular a group - I'm going with the former.
