Don't forget to check out my interview with Glenn Close if you haven't yet. Damages is the pick of the night of course, but there's some other gems out there.

8:00pm Matt Lauer Reports NBC - I'm not a huge fan of Matt Lauer or NBC news reporting but it should be interesting to see him grill Senator Larry Craig about his wide stance.

9:00pm Frontline: Cheney's Law PBS/KCET - A look at the Cheney robot's attempts to expand the power of the emperor, I mean, president. TV Junkie 9:00pm Pick.
