Wednesday night is just about all new shows this year, so if you watched "Kid Nation," "Private Practice," "Dirty Sexy Money," "Back to You," "Kitchen Nightmares," "Bionic Woman," "Gossip Girl" or "Life," here's your chance to weigh in.
So if you tuned in for the "Heroes" premiere, or if you have any thoughts on "Chuck" or "Journeyman," here's the place to vent.
"Friday Night Lights" is back. Well, it's back next week, but you can watch it on the Web now. My advice? Don't. The jerky, swirling, hovering camera work is a big part of the show's feel, and that just doesn't translate well to a streaming video that's jerky and grainy to start with.

I went to Mario Valdes' memorial service this afternoon. Valdes was the general manager for KRCC (91.5 FM) for 26 years and left a giant thumbprint on the station. If you're a KRCC fan, you've got Mario to thank. If you hate the station, that's Mario, too. And whichever way you lean, I think he'd be pleased that you cared enough to care.
This is cool: Air Academy grad Matt Wolpert, who was a production assistant on "My Name is Earl," just got hired to write for "Entourage."
A horrible pun for a horrible show. How's this for a blurb: "Easily the worst show of the 2007 fall season!"
I was watching the Patriots-Chargers game. It was a blowout early. I flipped to the Emmys. Robert Duvall was giving an acceptance speech. I pulled an episode of "Survivorman" up off the DVR. Watched it. Flipped back to the Emmys. Robert Duvall was giving an acceptance speech.
We were just talking about HBO's "Tell Me You Love Me" in one of the comment threads. Well, the ratings for the premiere are out and the news is not good. That's even wore than the now-canceled "John from Cincinnati." My "Showtime for Showtime" column is looking better and better (see that's me, always looking for the silver lining).

I can't really say what having their own Doppler station will really do for KKTV's weather reports, but it'll definitely be a promotion goldmine. I'm surprised it's KKTV taking the plunge, rather than KRDO, given 13's devotion to storm coverage.
Rolled in last night around midnight. And until I walked into the living room, I literally had not seen a TV for an entire week. So maybe I'll be able to look at the fall TV season with fresh eyes now. Or maybe I'll spend the weekend catching up on "Top Gear" repeats on BBC America. Ah yeah!
