TV Junkie: Thursday

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your 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.

It's becoming a task to find episodes of anything new and/or remarkable. Do I even mention that there's new episodes of Celebrity Apprentice, Make Me A Supermodel, and CSI? Am I supposed to be excited about informing you that there will be two (2!) new episodes of NBC's Chuck airing two weeks from tonight?

8:00pm Live From Lincoln Center: I Can't Believe It's Schoenberg! PBS/KCET - I can't believe it either.

8:15pm Wuthering Heights TCM - (1939) The movie is exactly like the Kate Bush song but it's got Sir Laurence Olivier, Merle Oberon, and David Niven in the love triangle.

8:30pm 30 Rock NBC - At long last, a new episode, and quite possibly the only thing worth watching. TV Junkie Pick O' The Night.

9:00pm Grey's Anatomy ABC - Last episode until the WGA strike is over.

10:00pm Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew VH1 - Series Premiere. I always liked Loveline's unflappable Dr. Drew, now here he is, poor schmuck, dealing with the likes of (Born Again, neo-con, drunken) Daniel Baldwin, WWF star Chyna Doll, Family Matters alum Jaimee Foxworth, porn star Mary Carey, and giant blonde Brigitte Nielsen. Dr. Drew was on Conan last night and sold the show pretty well. Let's see if they can pull it off. TV Junkie 10:00pm Pick.

10:00pm Nowhere IFC - (1997) Los Angeles' director Gregg Araki's vision of "libidinous Los Angeles teenagers on a roller-coaster ride to sexual awakening". This would be great if it were the plot summary for a film by any other director than Gregg Araki.

11:00pm The Daily Show With Jon Stewart COMEDYCENTRAL - President Lou Dobbs guests.

11:35pm The Late Show With David Letterman CBS - Our former editor's fave, Howard Stern, is on.
