TV Junkie: Thursday

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Yes, we have some new seasons and series awaiting us over the next couple months but it's remarkable that we've settled into a similar groove from the previous season. We know what's good and has held up over at least a season. It's a shame that 30 Rock continues to lag in the ratings despite being so consistently well-written and funny. We're nearing the end of the season for the remarkable program, Mad Men - I have no idea about how they will be able to successfully take this story on to another season so I'm trying to savor it now.

8:00pm Ugly Betty ABC - The new sandwich guy.

8:30pm 30 Rock NBC - A great start to the season last week, I'm sure Tina and gang can keep it up.
