The stabbing violins of Psycho? The signature songs of The Graduate and Saturday Night Fever? The eerie woo-woo-woo-woo-woo of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly? The thumping funk of Shaft?...

Whaddya bet NBC wishes it had Southland back now? They thought the L.A. copfest was too adult to run at 9 p.m. ET, back when their braintrust had ensconsed Jay Leno at 10. Now that he's outta there, they could really use the drama's grit and gumption...

Is TV Land finally getting back to basics? Could the channel be remembering that it once staked out unique territory in celebrating our TV heritage, rather than running me-too reality shows?...

And so it's official: Jay gets The Tonight Showback, Conan gets gone. How convenient that NBC late-night's upcoming Olympic hiatus allows the network to make such a clean break...

Current freebies on iTunes and Amazon.com include a couple of fun new shows that both critics and audiences seem to agree on. Mark Valley's new comic-book joyride Human Target is gratis at Amazon, for both watching and downloading...

Among this week's TV DVD releases: Damages, Weeds, Thirtysomething, Dallas, Defying Gravity...And a test for the two schools of DVD viewers/buyers -- those who never watch the bonus features, and those who wouldn't consider owning a set without extras...

NBC just announced its post-Olympics prime time schedule, and dramas are back at 10 p.m. ET! (Yay!) And that makes room for Friday Night Lights. (Double yay!) But one of the new 10 p.m. arrivals is a reality show. (Back to single yay)...

Tuesday is the day new TV disc releases drop -- and the day each week we plan to keep you posted on the latest DVD and Blu-ray goodies...The Simpsons gets its first-ever release on high-def Blu-ray Disc...

And so the ping-pong game continues. Conan O'Brien just said he won't do The Tonight Show if it's pushed back after midnight ET .His statement addressed to the "People of Earth" contends he believes moving the show from "tonight" to the next day would "seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting"...

Hate to say I told you so, but well, I told you (them) so. Last spring, months before The Jay Leno Show launched -- and crashed -- in NBC's 10 p.m. ET weeknight slot, I wrote a column dissecting how the network's affiliates might be the idea's downfall...Now word's out that they're trying to find ways to wiggle out of the mess they made...
