My TV guide

: My newfound video friends, Mary Matthews and Liza Persky of 39 Second Single, will, indeed, be on Weekend Today tomorrow (not next week as it appeared would be the case).

: UPDATE: This email from Mary: “Just as I predicted when the big news broke yesterday, due to the unfortunate passing of former stripper turned reality TV star turned diet pill pitch person Anna Nicole Smith, the highly anticipated 39 Second Single segment scheduled for tomorrow’s Today Show then changed to next week’s then changed back to tomorrow’s Today Show, has been bumped . . . .” Arrrgh.

: It looks like 20/20 is rerunning its Caught on Tape two-hour special tonight. I appeared on this but the last half of first airing was preempted by the execution of Saddam Hussein. So I was glad I could finally see the whole thing. Except I note that tonight they’ll be looking back at the life of Anna Nicole Smith. Now that’s news.

: Scheduled to be on CNN Sunday at 7:30 p.m. to talk about the YouTube campaign, presidential candidates on small TV.

: And while I’m at it, on Feb. 13, PBS Frontline starts a three-part series about the alleged war in and on news. I’ll be in the third episode on Feb. 27.
