    Anyone watch last weeks ep?

    I liked the interview w/Arnold Schwarzenegger. Part 1 at http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7423834n. There's at least a second part. I haven't compared what's online to what was aired (which I watched on TiVo).

    I didn't know about how his parents thought he was gay since he had all these pictures of naked men on his bedroom walls. :)

    No response?

    I don't know if this is normal or a coincidence but on my cable lineup, I see a bunch of Schwarzenegger movies being broadcast in the next two weeks like these:
    Twins - I still need to watch this.
    Kindergarten Cop (source of a lot of the sound clips used in the hilarious Arnold prank calls at http://yupislyr.com/drewmike/sounds1.html. Unfortunately, some of the links are dead/lead to invalid .mp3 files.)
    Conan
    The Terminator - I set this to record and (re-)watched most of it earlier today. The beginning was cutoff due to bad guide data on TiVo.
    Terminator 2
    Terminator 3 (in Spanish)
    Junior - Was pretty funny the first time I saw it. Some (a lot?) of it was filmed at UC Berkeley.
    Jingle All the Way
    True Lies

    I'm sure it's no coincidence that he'll be on Meet the Press and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

    The coincidence is that he is shilling a book. He was also on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Pretty normal to go to all the talk shows that will have you.

    The cable channels couldn't air Arnold's movies while he was in office. They're making up for lost time now that he's out.

    Actually, doesn't that only apply to California channels?

    So does that mean they never showed Ronald Reagan movies on cable channels across the US when he was president?

    I thought that was only in effect during active campaigns. But not living in CA I only marginally paid attention and could very likely be wrong.

    Exactly. I think that only was an issue when he was running or when he was still eligible to run again as governor.

    I was living outside CA when Arnold was first elected.

    I think it was only broadcast TV that did not show Ronald Reagan and Schwartzeneger movies. I don't remember any prohibitions on Jessie Ventura movies. (That would make the first Preditor movie an interesting thing to try to program) Actually I found some ruling about this FCC rule that since the movie was not a campaign ad, any movie with a candiate in it could be shown.
