Medium continues to rock our world with each passing week. Patricia Arquette is well deserving of that Emmy sitting on her mantle.
Peter Cotton Tail has come by to say hello. Want the scoop on the photo? You’ll find it at the end of today’s Tonight on TV.
In the meantime, can we talk about Zac Efron on Saturday Night Live? First off, I got to give him credit for not cracking up during the stupidity that was most of the sketches. SNL just isn’t what it used to be. I also wonder if he knew about the abuse he was going to get in the Pizza Rolls Commercial sketch. Either Zac is a really good actor or he was genuinely unhappy about the slaps to that pretty face. Don’t miss our interview with Zac here.
Did you watch TV on Friday? What a jam-packed night. Numb3rs returned with a very thought provoking episode about animal rights and it ended with a tense hostage stand-off that I didn’t see coming.I also didn’t foresee the cliffhanger ending to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. With hope fading for the show’s return, I’m surprised they went with such an open ending. On the other hand, the entire franchise is very circular with all the people coming back in time to become their own fathers, etc, so sending John into the future to meet those he’d lost was pretty cool. I’ll give them that.Over the weekend I enjoyed two of my favorite cable shows, Running in Heels and Any Dream Will Do. If you’re not watching this BBCAmerica musical import, why not? It’s American Idol with accents and these performers have to act and dance, too! I’ve got my favorite Joseph in mind – dark eyes, curly hair. Tune in next week and see if you can spot him.In the meantime, there are lots of goodies on tonight.
