TV Junkie: Weekend Edition

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

If you're not heading home to hit the bottle hard after this week, more power to you. I'm not sure what solace TV will provide this weekend, what with "The Starter Wife", that, despite all the heavy hype, looks less than funny.

What also looks less than good are the plans of "Survivor" creator, Mark Burnett, to recreate "This Is Your Life" according to the Hollywood Reporter. The original, while kitschy now, was an interesting program _for_its_time_ which doesn't mean that it should be reincarnated. How about some original ideas out there Mark? Or is your creative muse as flat as my 401k?

The TV Junkie plan: Tonight - "Stargate" (gettin' geekified), Letterman (Lou Reed yo!), Ferguson ("Little Britain"); Saturday - Graham Norton; Sunday - various Paul Newman movies, "Dexter", "Mad Men"
