Get Desperate Housewives Episodes at iTunesSorry to all those who came yesterday or anticipated receiving Tonight on the Tube via email, as I had some technical difficulties with my web hosting provider. I was unable to post anything all day yesterday. They finally figured out the problem and fixed it a little after 11:00 p.m., my time up here in Seattle. Hopefully, this won’t crop up again, but since we are talking about technology and computers, even if it doesn’t, something else probably will. Technology, as with most things, is great until it stops working. You can find today’s picks and TV show marathons information below. Enjoy! And, thanks for stopping by.
