Tonight on the Tube: Burn Notice, Dead Like Me Marathon & The Closer Replays

Dead Like Me Season 1 on DVDUnbelievably, Big Brother is back on CBS for its 8th incarnation tonight. I don’t get the fascination with watching people trapped in a house like hamsters treating each other like crap while trying to win a boatload of cash. This seems to bring out the worst in many of the people they cast, which is why they were chosen, all to feed the voyeur appetite of those who watch. Will you be watching Big Brother 8 tonight? Let us know why, I would really like to know.
