51 Birch St.

I've got one of those package cable-Internet deals from Time-Warner that gives me scads of HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and Starz channels. To be honest, other than watching Bill Maher, The Sopranos, and Curb Your Enthusiasm, I don't take much advantage of these four networks.

But tonight, I'll be sure to record my favorite movie of last year, and certainly my favorite documentary, 51 Birch St. It airs tonight at 7:00 P.M. on Cinemax and repeats on Sunday. It's enough to lure me away, temporarily, from what looks to be a magnificent reality special tonight -- "Hooters Dream Girl Challenge" on My Network TV.

I jest. But my current weird pleasure (I won't use "guilty")is "The Ultimate Coyote Ugly Search" on CMT on Friday nights. You'll thank me. Maybe.
