TV Junkie: Tuesday

Yes we know that the stock market is crashing but what about that other local industry, the one with actors, and directors, and TV, and movies and stuff. Remember back at the end of June that the Screen Actors Guild didn't ratify the offer from the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers? This means that business in Hollywood is going forward without a current contract between actors and producers which evidently isn't sitting well with SAG, who yesterday urged producers to come back to the table. The Hollywood Reporter states that AMPTP rejected the overture but business is moving ahead as usual - bad TV and movies must continue to be made.

Did anyone watch "The IT Crowd" on IFC last night? IFC didn't get us info about this in advance - evidently it's "'Seinfeld' with laptops" or "'The Office' for computer geeks". It'll be rebroadcast at 12am Wednesday. Also, did anyone notice on Sunday's "True Blood" that awesome LA band Dengue Fever had a featured song?

The TV Junkie plan: "House" (because we're feeling curmudgeonly); "High Noon" (because we're feeling curmudgeonly); "The Shield" (curmudgeonliness gives way to violence); Conan (because we couldn't get enough Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Cera on Letterman last night).
