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

Talk-show tango Oct. 26-30: Hugh Dillon, come on down

In television on 10/26/2009 at 8:49 am

On the potential-OMG front, Artie Lange, Mackenzie Philips and Kate Gosselin are all making appearances this week. But I’m going to rise above the salacious and pin my biggest hopes on The Hour hosting Hugh Dillon. The former Headstones frontman has an album out (Works Well With Others) and is hotter than Saturday night’s chili on Flashpoint, with a third season of Durham County shooting now.
