TV Junkie: Tuesday
With less than a week to go before the election, Barack Obama is taking the time to appear on Comedy Central's "Daily Show" tomorrow (Wednesday) night. Is this the official referendum that the so-called fake news show is in fact a leading source of news with an intelligent and politically aware viewership? We're talking about ourselves here, of course, and it's always necessary to stroke the ego.
There ain't much on TV tonight - if there's something you are going to watch and you don't see it listed below, please put it in the comments and explain why it should be listed. Even the movies on TCM, HBO, etc. have all been repeated about a jillion times this year.
