NBC has a new late night series kicking off on January 2 at 2:05am – Poker After Dark with host Shana Hiatt.  The 60-minute nightly show from Poker Prods airs Monday thru Saturday, and features six professional poker players all looking to pick up the $120,000 first place cash prize.  During the course of the week, the show will follow the action at different poker tables, until ultimately on Friday night there is a winner. Saturday night show, which airs following SNL at 1am ET, is listed as the Director’s Cut with the host and that week’s winner recapping the week’s strategies.

New information from Nielsen Media Research from its third quarter 2006 Home Technology Report: more U.S. households now own DVD players at 81.2% vs VCRs at 79.2%. At the end of third quarter 2006, DVD penetration increased by 6% in the U.S. from the previous year and this figure continues to grow, while VCR penetration has started to slip. Just seven years ago in 1999, when Nielsen started to track DVD ownership, the DVD penetration was at 6.7% and VCR penetration at 88.6%. Other findings include: 73.4% of U.S. homes own a computer are more likely to do so if children or teens are present in the household; 95.4% of people with Internet access go online at least once a week and 37.3% go online more than once a day; 26.7% of U.S. homes own or rent an MP3 player; and 16.4% of US homes own a PDA.

The History Channel Presents this day in History: 
1989 – The United States launches an invasion of Panama to remove its leader Manuel Noriega, a steadfast ally of US anticommunist efforts in Central America and indicted drug trafficker and money launderer.  The fighting was brief, although it cost the lives of 23 U.S. soldiers, three U.S. civilians, 150 Panamanian soldiers, and an estimated 500 Panamanian civilians.  Noriega fled to the residence of the papal representative in Panama and surrendered to DEA agents in early January.  He was the first foreign head of state to be tried and convicted in a U.S. court and is currently serving a 40-year sentence in federal prison.
