Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Wednesday, August 26, 2009

August 26, 2009 by  

Just waking up to the news that Senator Ted Kennedy has passed away. An American figure, he certainly holds a place of prominence here in Boston. If you’re interested, has amazing coverage of the life and death of Senator Kennedy. RIP.

Nothing like starting the day on a sad note. Let’s look ahead to tonight’s TV lineup, shall we? Make sure you set those DVRs because Jim Parsons of THE BIG BANG THEORY is on Letterman tonight.  He’s always painfully awkward but funny in the best possible way on talk shows!! And he might be a big movie star, but Bradley Cooper will forever me Will Tippen of ALIAS to me! Glad he’s hitting the big time now!  Bradley will be on with Conan tonight.
