TV Junkie: Wednesday

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


Be sure to "Hack the Debate" tonight (check out today's LAist interview with Current TV about this Twitter partnership) while watching McCain and Obama slug/slog it out (again).

Good news is that David Letterman favoriteAmy Sedaris is working on a TV pilot along with some "Strangers With Candy" alumni. She was on Letterman last night and was great as usual, sorry if you missed it.

Tonight brings the debut of David Alan Grier's "Chocolate News" at 10:30pm on Comedy Central. Should be hilarious and timely what with everything going on.
