Instant Reruns?

Time Warner Cable is talking with NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox to create a channel that would let viewers watch instant reruns TV's most popular programs.

The on-demand channel would allow viewers on-access to hit shows immediately following their first run.

This way, everybody can be disappointed around the water cooler discussing last night's Lost.

The monthly subscription fee for access to 20 top-ranked programs would be around $10.

Joy Behar, Our Hero

Kudos to Joy Behar, the only yenta host of The View with any sense of reality.

The cohost of the unwatchable morning show was clearly irritated by Star Jones' latest self serving rant yesterday. Via phone, Jones violated every portion of the TMI statue while discussing her breast lift. Amongst the nuggets offered: no, she didn't almost die; yes, she's anemic; yes, her boobs feel like they're 25 years younger than the rest of her flabby, loudmouthed body.

After hearing enough of Jones "me me me"ing, Behar finally cut her off, yelling "OK, Star... enough about you. On to us. Bye!" Jones then called her a bitch, which, of course, was bleeped.

We at TVGS applaud Behar, as she's consistently the only one on that show who seems willing to point out the truth about Ms. Jones. Bravo.

Tubeservations: 24

Explosive episode last night- and a cliffhanger to boot?

Will Bauer live?

Judging by how shitty the promo looked, I'd imagine he returns in the first 30 seconds of the episode, and cut around it for the teaser.
