Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed episode:
00:31 One Day at a Time: The great and good Rita Moreno continues to delight in this show that is very good, but not quite great. Mentioned: Moreno on WTF with Marc Maron.
09:58 The West Wing: President Bartlet is inaugurated, Will Bailey is deputized, and Abbey and CJ make questionable style choices. Mentioned: Team USA's bizarre gloves at the Winter Olympic Games.
21:35 Challenge Round: My Next Guest Needs No Introduction: Catherine challenged us both to check out David Letterman's new Netflix talk show; we watched the second episode, starring George Clooney along with Dave's must-be-seen-to-be-believed facial hair. If you're curious about the show Clooney mentioned (Sunset Beat), Brian Grubb wrote about it, hilariously, at Uproxx. Verdict: We'd watch this again--depending on the guest.
For next week, Terri challenged Catherine to read the first book in Sue Grafton's Alphabet Mysteries series, A Is for Alibi. We'll also watch the next two episodes of One Day at a Time ("Strays" and "The Death of Mrs. Resnick" from season 1) and The West Wing's "The California 47th" (season 4).
