It's a busy week for us here at TV WORTH WATCHING.
Diane Werts has just outdone herself, again, with ANOTHER Christmas-related treat, this time a new FOR BETTER OR WERTS blog about skillions of holiday-related offerings you can find online. Link to it HERE, and prepare for hours of distraction. (And woman, get some sleep...)
And, with the book out of the way, I'm doing a lot more NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross these days. Today I interview Terry Gilliam, whose new movie, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, is the final film to star Heath Ledger -- in a role that was completed by Johnny Depp and others...
And of course, being a TV critic, I also ask Gilliam about Monty Python and other things. It was a fun conversation. Tune in today on your local NPR station, or you can hear it after about 5 p.m. ET by linking HERE.
And speaking of fun conversations, Terry and I just recorded an end-of-year wrap-up chat about the year in television. Right now, it's tentatively scheduled to run tomorrow. So listen for it, if you like -- same Bat-time, same Bat-channel.
