The National Geographic channel will give us a new look at the Known Universe.

TNT will broadcast the NBA All-Star Game. Tip-off is at 8 pm EST.

The Daily Show and The Colbert Report will both be airing reruns this week.

This past Thursday, Jon Stewart conducted a painful to watch interview with former Sen. John Sununu (R-NH), who is mentioned as a possible contender for the Senate seat that Judd Gregg may or may not vacate in 2010.

As Taegan Goddard (PoliticalWire) commented, Sununu is gonna have to do much better than this if he wants that seat.

In other comedic news, Daily Show correspondent John Oliver crashed the White House press briefing on Wednesday for a segment to be aired on an unknown date.

And, Wanda Sykes has been selected as the entertainer at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner, which will be held on May 9.

Flashback:

...

Understatement of the Week:

"The last thing that I think we are looking for at this juncture is advice on fiscal integrity or ethics from Karl Rove -- anyone who's read the newspapers for the last eight years would laugh at that."

- Senior Advisor to the President David Axelrod

...

Joe the Plumber conducted an investigation into the stimulus bill, and found that:

"The money that they’re talking about spending is just absolutely incredible. You can’t get your mind around it.  We used to think a million dollars was just the most incredible thing. Then it went to billions and now we’re talking trillions. And trillions is such a large number we just can’t wrap our mind around it, at least I can’t."

I have to agree with Blue Texan (firedoglake), who said, "When Joe tells me he can't wrap his mind around something, I believe him."

...

Web 2.D'oh!

  • Former Chairman and current Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee Peter Hoekstra tweeted details about his secret Codel.

  • Republican candidate Jim Tedisco (NY-20) used Twitter to highlight a DCCC story about his excessive gas consumption.

  • Virginia state legislator and Republican party Chairman Jeff Frederick flushed potential control of the state Senate down the Twitter.

...

Don't you know it's gonna be... alright.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
