I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

Talk-show tango: April 6-10

In television on 04/06/2009 at 8:45 am

Well let me tell you this. If you haven’t had a vacation recently, I highly recommend it. And yes, the Cuba Libres are much more libre IN Cuba. I’ll stop there because I don’t want to rub it in, but all that to say I have been out of the flat-screen loop for the past couple of weeks. I’ll be caught up soonest. We’ll talk. Here’s the talk show update for this week (holiday-week repeats everywhere except on the Daily Show, Colbert Report, The Hour, Live with Regis and Kelly, Real Time with Bill Maher and the Oprah, Tyra Banks and Bonnie Hunt shows).
