Okay, I'm going for broke on this one -- Party Down is TV's best current comedy. As it eavesdrops on a Hollywood cater crew full of wannabes waiting for their acting/singing/writing talents to be appreciated...

Belated anniversary wishes to two of TV's most memorable developments: First, to Discovery Channel -- If you caught Sunday night's 25 Years of Discovery special, you know cable's original full-time documentary showcase is celebrating its 25th anniversary all this week at 9 p.m. Note that I say "biggest" rather than best or most memorable...
