TV Junkie: Tuesday

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

As we reported yesterday, Jon Voight is going to be on "24" and now we learn from THR that William Hurt will be joining his The Big Chill co-star, Glenn Close, on FX's "Damages" this Fall. "Damages" was easily one of the top three programs of the year in 2007 and the addition of Hurt is beginning to solidify a picture of how the second season will function - Hurt will have regular role for the entire season on the show, playing a character that will be both a client as well as a personal acquaintance to Glenn Close's Patty Hewes.

The 9 o' clock hour is slammed tonight, also check out late night TV - some good guests. "Weeds" was great last night and its follow up, "Secret Diary of a Call Girl", the tritely romanticized take on prostitution certainly _looks_ good and has potential with its, as summed-up by LAist Editor, "Alfie with a girl" format.
