Idol-heads and Runway-heads have a lot to celebrate tonight and I'll be damned, look at how busy the schedule is in the 10:00-11:00pm time frame. Since I don't think any of the options are fantastic is it better to have a little or a lot of mediocrity to choose from?

In other news, yeah the writer's strike is over, and SNL is finally heading back into production with it's first show scheduled for Feb. 23rd. I went to an SNL dress-rehearsal last year - check it.

7:15pm Roman Holiday TCM - (1953) Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn star in this somewhat sappy sojourn in Rome, but if you've ever been in Rome, or really want to go there, it's a pleasure to watch.

8:00pm American Idol FOX - The Confederacy of Dunces has "narrowed" it down to 24 "finalists".
