News & Notes

Download Episodes of Breaking Bad at Amazon UnboxTonight, CBS has The 50th Annual Grammy Awards, The CW has moved their Monday night two-hour comedy block to Sunday nights starting tonight, and NBC has a 100 Most Outrageous Moments special.

Over on cable, BBC America has the British Academy of Film and Television Arts 2008 awards show and on Oxygen and USA, you will find a replay of the Lipstick Jungle “Pilot” episode during the day.

In writers’ strike news, it looks like it might really be over and writers could be getting back to work soon. But, what does that mean for your favorite shows? Well, Ausiello over at TV Guide has started putting together a list of what shows might have new episodes for April/May, what shows will not return until Fall and what shows might not return, ever.

Enter to win a free One Tree Hill Season Four DVD set. The odds of winning are pretty good, since only eight people have entered so far, as of this posting, for a chance to win one of two sets being given away. Maybe everyone is just waiting until the last minute and will enter on Tuesday before the entry window closes that night.
