Skipping the speech? Try "Onion News Network" and "Portlandia"


OK, you really know you should be watching the State of the Union speech tonight (Tuesday, Jan. 25). If you don't, however, this is the perfect time to find "Onion News Network" and "Portlandia."

Their openers aired at 10 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and rerun at 9 and 9:30 p.m. tonight. That's on IFC (Independent Film Channel), which is hard to find -- you'll need satellite or digital cable -- but worth it.
