TV Junkie: Thursday - Michael Ian Black hosts "Reality Bites Back"
The Emmy nominations are out today and finally it seems like they're getting on the right track with nominations for AMC's "Mad Men", FX's "Damages", and Showtime's "Dexter". In comedy NBC is duking it out with itself between "30 Rock" and "The Office". If any of those previously-mentioned shows wins this will be a good year for the Emmys. In particular the AMC and FX nominations are groundbreaking for basic cable to receive such critical acclaim.
Tonight marks the debut of something we've been waiting a long time for: the return of Michael Ian Black in ongoing programming! Black will be hosting Comedy Central's "Reality Bites Back" tonight at 10:30pm, it looks to be very funny based on some of the promo clips that have been released, thus making it the TV Junkie Pick O' the Night.
