FRIDAY FUN: iTunes Mania!

Unless you live in a television black hole, you're fully aware that many of your favorite shows are now available on Apple's music download program iTunes. An episode will cost you $1.99, and it is well worth it when you miss one of your favorites. For today's edition of Friday Fun, PTR is going to get you updated on all of the shows you can now catch with the popular download service. But first, here's a list of some FREE episodes from iTunes (and who doesn't like free TV??!!):

"The Titan on the Tracks" (2nd season premiere)
Price: $1.99 FREE!!
Get it HERE now

Battlestar Galactica
"The Story So Far" (Clip show that wraps up 1st 2 seasons)
Price: $1.99 FREE!!
Get it HERE now

Many of your favorite shows are available for download at $1.99 an episode or you can purchase an entire season. If all of the episodes haven't aired yet (say, this current season of Grey's Anatomy), then iTunes will automatically download the episode after it airs on network television. So fans of Grey's who have purchased its 3rd season, are getting last night's episode automatically downloaded today! Here's a list of all of the current broadcast shows on iTunes (* denotes a PTR fave):

Desperate Housewives
Grey's Anatomy
The Nine
America's Funniest Home Videos

Cancelled Shows: Commander In Chief, Alias, Night Stalker

CSI: Miami


Prison Break

Cancelled/Classic Shows: Stacked, Hill Street Blues, Murder One


The Office
Law & Order
Law & Order: CI
Law & Order: SVU*
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
The Biggest Loser

Cancelled Shows: Conviction, Law & Order: Trial by Jury, Surface

So far, The CW hasn't made available any episodes from its popular shows. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they decide to put Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, America's Next Top Model and others on iTunes soon. If you haven't jumped on the iTunes bandwagon yet, you can click on over to Apple's site to download your free software. You can watch your favorite episodes on your computer or you can take it to go on your video iPod, making television viewing so convenient that you can load up your television plate with even more shows (I watch Jericho exclusively through downloads). It's every TV fan's dream come true!
