Now what's on TV tonight? Oh yeah, Hell on Wheels, Boardwalk Empire, Treme, Dexter, and Homeland. Thank God for On Demand!

I need to make me a big salad before my TV shows start.

The Steel Magnolias remake (all African-American cast) starts on Lifetime in about 20 minutes! No way am I going to miss that. I want to see how I like it compared to the original. From what I could see in the previews, the writers pretty much stuck to the same lines, but they threw at least a little new material in there.

Queen Latifah plays the M'Lynn character (previously played by Sally Field). Jill Scott plays Dolly Parton's character Truvy, Phylicia Rashad (from The Cosby Show) plays Olympia Dukakis' character Clairee (I think)... the others are played by actresses I've never heard of.
