Headlines & Movie Trailers:

Closing Thought:


  1. Tim and I got totally reamed by Comcast regarding Earl. We record only new Earls and the Comcast lineup said that the new Earl came on at 8:00, so we recorded that one, but it was an old one when we went to watch it! And we totally didn't get to see the new one and they're not replaying the old one. We're pissed off!

  2. Yeah, I noticed only about an hour beforehand that the Thursday night lineup got moved around due to Bush's farewell speech last week. Luckily, my Comcast guide was on the ball. I was surprised.

    You can watch last week's episode of My Name Is Earl online at NBC.com. http://www.nbc.com/My_Name_Is_Earl/video/categories/season-4/698203/
