Talk-show Tango March 7-11: Marilyn Denis, Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez and Battle: Los Angeles

In television on 03/06/2011 at 1:11 pm

Much of this week is dragged won in repeats (Letterman, Leno, Fallon, Kimmel, Oprah) but there is some new action. First of all, welcome The Marilyn Denis Show to these listings, (weekdays at 10 a.m. ET on CTV). Then, and nothing personal Marilyn, make way for Aaron Eckhart and Michelle Rodriguez promoting Battle: Los Angeles, a special-effects vehicle that, I suspect, will not be big on logic or plot but who cares (chilly trailer below). Also, I am wondering what kind of Charlie Sheen news or skewerings might come up when John Stamos guests on The Talk. Oh no, he says so far, he’s not replacing Charlie Sheen on the sitcom Two and a Half Men. But who believes anybody from Hollywood?
