News & Notes

Grey's Anatomy - Season Four on DVDTonight, ABC has the second season finale of Ugly Betty and the two-hour fourth season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, FOX has the two-hour fourth season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance, and NBC has the 90-minute sixth season premiere of Last Comic Standing.

Over on cable, Comedy Central has the fifth season summer premiere of Reno 911!

On Friday morning, I have the opportunity to take part in a group interview with Jordana Spiro of My Boys on TBS. Could use a little help, cause even though it is one of my favorite shows in recent years, I am drawing a bit of a blank on good questions to ask. So, if you have any questions about the show, or Jordana, leave them in the comments, or use the contact form, and I’ll try to get them answered?
