Original programming is going just fine at TNT, thank you very much. The network launched in 1988, but only got the hang of producing new shows in the last few years.
After a series of missteps--anyone remember Saved or Wanted?--TNT is two-for-two with new programming, not including its stellar The Closer. Saving Grace was received positively when it debuted in 2007, and Raising the Bar has done just fine this year.
The Screen Actors Guild took time out of its strike talk to release this year's nominees for its annual SAG Awards, and one would be hard pressed to find a shocker among the bunch. The usual names are all there, but we'll list them off for you anyway.
For the week of March 30-April 5: It's a fond farewell for ER and Life on Mars, as both shows say goodbye. Damages rolls out its second season finale, and Ozzy is back on TV. Online, checkout clips of the ER finale!
