Indecision '08: America's Choice
10 pm/ET Comedy Central
Pundits love to talk about undecided voters this time of year, but nobody does indecision better than Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
Read on for previews of Election Night Coverage, Privileged, The Shield and Frank TV.
November 4 will be a sad day for comedians across the nation. Without our current POTUS in office, some of their finest shticks will be coming to an end. But for comedic impressionist Frank Caliendo, the new reign can only mean one thing —, a new character to play on his television show. Find out what we can expect on the funnyman's second season of Frank TV premiering October 21 at 11 pm/et.
TBS has ordered eight more episodes of its popular late-night talker Frank TV, which has averaged more than two million viewers since its November debut.... HBO has acquired the Academy Award-nominated documentary Taxi to the Dark Side, and will air it in September.... CMT premieres The Ultimate Coyote Ugly Search 3 on March 7, at 9 pm/ET. (If something is the ultimate, how can it have successors? Or, is this like the Never-ending Story movie sequel?)
A few things to be thankful for today: The courts are starting to really toughen up on drunk drivers. On Wednesday, Mike Tyson was released from the pokey after serving a way longer sentence than Lindsay Lohan. He was behind bars for a whole 24 hours. TBS' premiere of Mad TV impressionist Frank Caliendo's Frank TV late-night skit show drew 2.9 million viewers delivering better demos, the cabler crows, than even Leno and Letterman. Which can only mean the far superior Stephnie Weir will be getting her own series any day now. Laura Branigan is making a comeback, the New York Post reports. Fans of the "Self Control" singer, who died three years ago, have demanded the rerelease of three of her out-of-print albums, and in January, their wish will come true. So would now be a good time for me to start campaigning for Strawberry Switchblade to finally come out in the US? — Ben Katner
