TV Junkie: Tuesday
The Wall Street Journal reports that Netflix has struck a deal with CBS and Disney to distribute their content over the internet after their original air date. Do they really think that Netflix will do a better job at this than Hulu? C'mon, why can't we centralize the content a bit more instead of forcing us to deal with your different delivery methods and interfaces.
"90210" haters will have more to hate as the revamped series on The CW has been picked up for the full season. As if that weren't enough, Shannon Doherty is gracing the cover of Radarand pouting at you from every newsstand. If only it was poutine and not pouting.
Even though late night is new on all channels tonight, its all old guests: do I really want to see Julianne Moore, Dane Cook, Jason Kasinski, and the Kings of Leon again? Have we run out of new and interesting people to talk to?
The TV Junkie plan: "House" (because of Hugh); "Unbeatable Banzuke" (in case "House" sucks); "American Masters" (because LA should know how Warner Brothers got founded); "The Shield" (because Vic is slowly getting boiled, like that frog Al Gore talks about).
