Just a reminder about The Essentials

I mentioned some weeks back that The Essentials was coming back to TCM, and tonight is the premiere. Alec Baldwin will be the host, and his first guest host is David Letterman. Tonight's Essential, at 8:00 PM, will be The Bad and the Beautiful, one of the great Hollywood-on-Hollywood movies. It's also the opening for a night (well, half a night, since there's TCM Underground overnight) of Kirk Douglas movies, including the first airing in a long while of Champion, which follows The Bad and the Beautiful at 10:15 PM. The last of the Douglas films is Lust for Life, at 12:15 AM.

And for an OT note: Google screwing over the preview until you click to dismiss the "warning" about including a photo not hosted by Blogger is really obnoxious.
