Quote of the Week: If I start getting stalked by the other guy from Wham! (Nate, Eli Stone)
Song of the Week: Barracuda - Heart (Chuck)
Big News of the Week: 57 Channels gets Expanded: The origin of 57 Channels and Only This Is On started as a weekly post to wax poetic about the shows I watched but then I thought it would be cool to add a Quote of the Week, and kept adding Of the Week segments to the point last year writing 57 Channels became a little too cumbersome. I had planned on splitting the post but then the writers strike hit and suddenly their wasn’t much to write about. Now with the new season in full swing, 57 Channels became cumbersome again, and if it tedious to write I assume that it may be tedious to read every week so starting this week I will be splitting it up to make it easier on you and me. Certainly when shows start going into repeats and weeks when their isn’t much to write about and summertime, it will all be condensed back into one post. If you have a suggestion for a better title or another “Of the Week” segment you would like, drop a comment in the comment section.

Kate became fascinated with Valentine, because it's pretty much the worst show ever made. (TV Filter)
Free Download of the Week: Spaceballs: The Animated Series (iTunes): Why didn’t anyone bother to tell me there was a Spaceball cartoon out there before? The Mel Brooks classic is a Scooter Hall of Fame inductee and apparently the show started airing a couple weeks ago on G4. Luckily that means there will likely be plenty of repeats. If you missed it like me you can start catching up with downloading the two part pilot for free. As an added bonus, for those that need a reminder of what happened in the first season or want to just jump right in, you can download the Eli Stone Starter Kit for free on iTunes also.
Promo of the Week: NBC is getting Chuck into the online game. First it was the Buy More website and now some webisodes featuring Casey and Big Mike which you can see below (I sometimes have trouble embedding NBC videos so if you cannot see it, head over to NBC.com to see them):
Next Week Pick of the Week: Frank TV, Tuesday at 11:00 on TBS: The man of a million impressions is back for a second season and brought along a tall black dude along for the fun (you didn’t think Frank would try Barack Obama himself?). I will have more on the show before the show, until then check out my interview with the star: Chatting with Frank Caliendo.
