TV Bulletin Board (Nov. 30)

We know you go to unclebarky.com for the articles. But just in case...

OK, you probably haven't focused yet on that little guy up above with a microphone to his mouth. Recognize him? Why, that's Justin Timberlake, king of the "wardrobe malfunction."

He'll be tempting fate anew with what CBS calls his "breakout performance of the decade on the sexiest night on television." So all apparently is forgiven from the 2004 Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show, when Timberlake ripped off Janet Jackson on CBS' time. He'll now be singing selections from his FutureSex/LoveSounds CD during CBS' Tuesday night, Dec. 5 telecast of The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (9 central, 10 eastern).

Playing along are models Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima, Karolina Kurkova, Alessandra Ambrosio, Selita Ebanks and Izabel Goulart. Oh for the simpler times of simpler names like Ethel Mertz.

***CBS has canned 3Lbs. after three episodes. Rushed onto Tuesday nights after the new series Smith lasted just three episodes, the drama starred Stanley Tucci as a headstrong Manhattan brain surgeon. CBS had planned to bump 3 Lbs. up an hour on Dec. 5 in deference to the Victoria's Secret special. But now a rerun of The Unit will step in.

*** Ill. Sen. Barack Obama will take the Jay Leno plunge on NBC's Friday, Dec. 1 Tonight Show. Obama, who's considering a 2008 presidential run on the Democratic ticket, is one of many prominent pols to "demonstrate their relaxed, good-humored side" on Tonight, says NBC. Others include Al Gore, George W. and Laura Bush, John McCain, John Kerry and frequent guest Arnold Schwarzenegger, who announced his successful campaign for California governor in Leno's presence.
