Watch 'Knights', 'Emergency' Encores Tonight; TCA Winter Cable Press Tour Preview

This is yet another reminder if you have not seen the pilots for the new ABC comedies The Knights of Prosperity and In Case of Emergency, that they are re-airing tonight (TGIF) at 9/8 central. And if you have watched them, watch them again because they certainly are hilarious, especially the Knights. Why am I keep mentioning this? Because sitcoms these days are not well watched and the quality of these (in particular the Knights) is of high class and I don't want it to see get wasted and die. I've seen subsequent episodes and they get even better! So, tune in tonight and watch the new episodes EVERY Wednesday at 9/8 central. You can make a difference and laugh & have fun for an hour at the same time. Let's see a little spike in the ratings this Wednesday! And now a cool ad for In Case of Emergency...


Next week is a big week in the world of cable--the TCA Winter Cable Press Tour. Yes, it is that semi-annual time of the year again and we hope to learn some cool programming news! We will like usual cover it in detail. The fun starts on Monday with an evening reception, then the meetings and sessions starts Tuesday and end Friday. And here is the schedule of networks going on what day:
Tuesday: Turner Broadcasting (CNN, TNT, TBS), Weather Channel, Great American Country, A&E/History Channel, Hallmark Channel, FX.
Wednesday: Discovery Networks (Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, Travel), Oxygen, TV One, National Geographic Channel, BBC America, Disney Channel/ABC Family.
Thursday: E! Networks (E!, style, G4), ESPN, Lifetime, Starz!, MTV Networks (MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, Spike, Nickelodeon/Nick@Nite, TV Land).
Friday: TV Guide Channel, NBC Universal Cable Networks (Bravo, Sci-Fi, USA Network)), Sundance Channel, GSN, Rainbow Networks (AMC, WE-TV, Fuse), HBO.
We will give you details of anything we can next week, but we will try to stay on topic and cover only the TV/sitcom related updates, rather than something from like Animal Planet or something. So, next week this is the place to be for any updates from the press tour!
