TV Junkie: Get Comforted; Flight of the Conchords on Letterman
A Word or 100+:
Ooops, I missed the Tonys, malhereusement. If there's a pick tonight, other than arena football, then it's the US version of Creature Comforts on CBS at 8:00 p.m. (from the creator of Wallace and Gromit). I love the UK version but my kids have a hard time with the various British accents and some of the various topics - I know it's a lot to ask for but I'm hoping that the US version manages to correct this but not lose any of the humor.
