Sherlock is on PBS starting at 9p EST for 90 minutes, so if you're so inclined go check out 'The Walking Dead" on AMC repeating at 11:30P EST. (First showing at 10P EST)

During the week I can go days without anything interesting I want to watch, so they pile all of them on Sundays so I have to decide. Hate that.

Harry Reid promises DREAM Act vote in lame duck

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

I'm not sure what good it would do, 'cause if the R's get ahead of the game on Tuesday, they'll just defund it like they say they will the health care reform.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) vowed on Spanish-language television to bring the DREAM Act back for a vote in the lame-duck session.

On the Univision program "Al Punto," Reid was repeatedly hammered by host Jorge Ramos on whether the vote would happen, win or lose on Tuesday.

"The answer is yes," Reid said.

"I have the right to do that, you know, I have the right to bring that up any time I want, that's why I brought it up the first time," he said. "I am a believer in our needing to do something. ... We all support the DREAM Act. I just need a handful of Republicans to help me."

Of the lack of Republican support he's received on the DREAM Act or comprehensive immigration reform, Reid said, "They want to keep talking about this issue, and I say it's demagoguery in its worst fashion and is unfair to the Hispanic community."
