So it's been a week since "Saving Grace" premiered. And seemingly buzz has followed, whether it's been about how much of Holly Hunter appeared on screen or the way her character was driving recklessly with children in the back seat.

So let's tune in and log on again and experience it together. Jennie will keep up with the number of legit OKC references

Midway through his show -- after performing "The Last Worthless Evening" -- Don Henley asked the crowd to stop taking so many pictures of him.

He said that one or two pictures a song was ok, but the crowd was making it their own personal photo gallery. He said it was distracting. Perhaps the numerous strobe lights on the stage were different somehow.

Billy Bob Thornton's Saturday night show at Riverwind Casino in Norman has been cancelled. Just when the Webmonkeys thought their sure-fire Saturday entertainment plans were never fail, word spread about the cancellation.

This feels worse than when his Nineties sicom 'Hearts Afire' was cancelled. He and Markie Post had such great chemistry; oh, yeah, she was John Ritter's flame. Nevermind. But what a bummer to miss his musical performance!

Various state and city officials and leaders plan to attend a rally Saturday intended to "Save the Rails."

 

Andrew Rice, Wallace Collins, James Brannum, Tom Elmore and Fannie Bates are scheduled to appear at the 10 a.m. event to be held at Union Station, SW 7th and Harvey Ave.

 

Organizers say existing plans for the new Interstate 40 will pave over some of Oklahoma City's important rail structure and any future rail development could require massive expense to recreate what currently exists. Other concerns include rerouting heavy trucks along Interstate 240 instead of Interstate 40.

According to entertainment site zap2it.com, TNT has extended "Saving Grace" for a second season. Starring Holly Hunter as an Oklahoma City detective, the series airs Mondays at 9 p.m. following critcally acclaimed series "The Closer."

 

More than five million viewers have tuned for each of the series' three episodes including the Webmonkeys.

 

Wonder if viewers are more enticed by Hunter being scantily clad or the cliché cowboy hats and boots or maybe the oft-mentioned OU football references.
