Yes We Scan!: Inaugural TV, Part 1

by

obamaYes, we know the Inauguration is tomorrow, but we an’t wait. We want to get our Obamadrama TODAY!

Thankfully, TV is a kind creature, and what better way to spend MLK day than hunkering down with chips, dips and coverage of tomorrow?

The news networks are on lockdown when it comes to updates and talking heads. Here is must-see programming that’s celeb studded and fun. (All times are Eastern Standard.)

1p: HBO replays We Are One: Obama. The critics are calling it a “near-flawless production with multiple camera angles and a majestic backdrop in the giant statue of Abraham Lincoln.” The inaugural concert features Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Bono, Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, Renee Fleming, Josh Groban, Herbie Hancock, Heather Headley, John Legend, Jennifer Nettles, John Mellencamp, Usher Raymond IV, Shakira, Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, will.i.am and Stevie Wonder, many of whom change the words to their songs to fit the momentous occasion.

4p: Barack’s biggest fan Oprah celebrates the inauguration with Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, ScarJo, Bono, will.i.am, Seal, Faith Hill and Mary J. Blige. The last two will sing, the rest will share their in-depth knowledge of politics. Nothing screams political savvy likes Demi Moore. Except perhaps, Ashton Kutcher pontificating on stimulus plans? (Check local listings for times and channels.)

8p: Disney Channel airs young-people’s concert honoring military families, hosted by the mother-we-all-wish-we-had Claire Huxtable Michelle Obama and featuring MiCy and the “virginal” Jonas Brothers (Joe is kind of sexy and definitely jailbait).
