Ear on TV: Week of January 2

This first week of 2007 doesn't have much to shine a light on, but there's still an interesting 'Music On TV' convergence with The Twilight Singers' appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night. The band revolves around frontman Greg Dulli, formerly of Afghan Wigs fame, and Dulli is plugged into the television world through his famous drinking buddies. First is Dennis Leary, who's excellent series Rescue Me has featured many Dulli songs in the past, and Leary's even gone on to plug The Twilight Singers on in repeated interviews. Another one of his good friends is Donal Logue (Grounded For Life, The Tao of Steve) who's latest series The Knights of Prosperity premieres this week, and is bound to have some Dulli sprinkled in the soundtrack throughout the season.
