Be sure to check out the LAist photo essay coverage of yesterday's "Rally For Conan" at his Universal set. There were also rallys in Chicago, New York, and other cities. Makes us wonder what will happen after the final show on Friday.
Even though the Winter Olympics are almost a month away they will be interfering with the production of several of your favorite series, including: "V" and "Fringe". Um, the Olympics have been planned for at least a decade so this shouldn't have been a surprise.
Yay! President Obama's State of the Union speech has been scheduled for January 27th, and thus will not interfere with the season premiere of "Lost" on February 2nd (but it will interfere with "American Idol" in an obvious Liberal conspiracy against Fox).
You can still bid on getting bleacher seats for this Saturday's SAG Awards, the proceeds go to charity - we hope to see you there.
