    I’ll be tuning in to PBS tonight to watch the second half of Ken Burns’ “Baseball:The Tenth Inning”
    The entire documentary is amazing, and this newest addition is just as great.

    Additionally, I liked ‘The Whole Truth’ enough last week that I might tune in again this week. It’s not set on the DVR or anything, but I thought it was pretty solid, for a pilot. We’ll see if the writing gets better or worse.
