TV Junkie: Weekend Edition

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Hope you caught the season finale of Mad Men - it was excellent, especially the final pitch to Kodak (the finale will repeat tonight at 10:00pm on AMC). Am still bummed over the death of Deborah Kerr, of the King and I and From Here to Eternity fame (yeah, that was her rolling around in the surf with Burt Lancaster), she will be very much missed. We also lost the last remaining member of the Rat Pack (not the Brat Pack as I previously wrote), comedian Joey Bishop.

ALL DAY Horror Movies TCM - Yup, classic and weird horror movies all day on Turner Classic Movies, including: Die! Die! My Darling!, Freaks, The Devil Doll, and London After Midnight. TV Junkie Pick-O-the-Night.

8:00pm The Next Great American Band FOX - Series Premiere. Sneak previews have shown that there might not be many "bad audtions" for viewers to watch, which might be a mistake since that's about 1/2 the reason to watch American Idol.
