TV Junkie: Thursday

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Tonight brings the highly anticipated (US) series premiere of "Life on Mars" on ABC. Is it just another gussied up time-traveler premised police procedural or does it have more substance? The Brits loved their version, let's see if the US one has legs. What it does have is Harvey Keitel in a supporting role on TV.

Also starting tonight is SNL's primetime show, "Saturday Night Live: Thursday Update" - in order to keep everyone up on the political shenanigans that have happened since last Saturday night.

The TV Junkie plan: "SoCal Connected"; "The Office"; "Saturday Night Live: Thursday Update"; "Life on Mars"; Letterman.
