President Obama takes over TV

President Obama will dominate the networks as he delivers a speech to both houses of Congress. After that, you must check out a TNT season finale.

What does Southern rocker Christian Kane love more than anything? Women’s lingerie! It’s not what you think…or maybe it is…see for yourself when you read my interview with the Leverage star today on Then tune in for the season finale of the series, tonight at 10:00 on TNT.

Last night I cleared a few more things off my DVR including last week’s Knight Rider which was mostly a bore. Series co-star Smith Cho has a new movie out this week called Fired Up and I hear it may knock Bring it On out of the top spot as my favorite cheerleader movie. I’m off to see it later this week.

I also watched the Law & Order episode about the company that will send emails to the sinners you love once the Rapture has begun and all the good people are called up to heaven. Only on Law & Order can you start with a body in a freezer and end up with a totally different case going to trial. I do adore the twists and turns.

Tonight, it’s Obama, Obama, Obama, co-staring Congress and the press. It should make for an exciting evening. Check it out.

Tonight On TV — Tuesday, February 24, 2009

President Obama is addressing congress on TV tonight, so depending on your time zone, your schedule will vary. Here’s an East Coast look.

ABC’s line-up is full of irony. It begins with a new episode of Homeland Security, then the President addresses and congress and that’s followed by Primetime: What Would You Do?

A similar case could be made for CBS’s line-up with the military themed NCIS, then the President, then reruns of Two and a Half Men.

The CW has a rerun of 90210 and a new Privileged.

Food Network has new episodes of Food Detective and Chopped.
