UPDATE: Definitely set your DVR for the 9:30am EDT/6:30am PST showing of this one. C-SPAN tells me that the Senate will be session on Saturday, so the later showings may be preempted. Hopefully no one will filibuster and the evening showings will go on as scheduled. The program should also air on C-SPAN3 on Sunday. "I'm a little disappointed, sure, but it's also a bit of an honor to be preempted by the U.S. Senate," Bob Calhoun said.
