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.


Other than the Sarah Palin edition of "SNL" last weekend, there weren't too many bright spots for NBC in terms of viewership. FOX and ABC didn't fare much better and of all the big networks only CBS had more viewers last week than the week before. Those waves of pilots and new programming haven't paid off at all, perhaps because everyone is in the movie theater watching "Beverly Hills Chihuahua".

"Top Gear" fans, if you're still pining for the show and reruns aren't cutting it for you, a website for US fans was launched today. Lots of video clips, a "Best 25 Moments" is coming, and there's a free iTunes download available for you. Long live The Stig!

The TV Junkie Plan: "Independent Lens", "Sons of Anarchy", Kimmel. "Mythbusters" does look very funny though.
