TV Junkie: Wednesday
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?
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".
9:00pm African American Lives 2 PBS/KCET - Morgan Freeman learns about his great-great-grandmother's slavery experience.
9:30pm Unbeatable Banzuke G4 - Crazy Japanese gymnast combatants duke it out in "Bamboo Derby 2'' and "Sponge Bridge.''
