Oscar winner and Nyack resident Jonathan Demme’s documentary about the aftermath of Katrina, in which he followed around residents of the Lower 9th Ward for a year after the hurricane, is airing right now on PBS. This much I learned while channel-surfing the wasteland that is early-summer TV. “Right to Return: New Home Movies from the Lower 9th Ward,” a five-installment series, has two more episodes to go — tonight and tomorrow on Tavis Smiley’s late-night program.
I was hoping we’d get to see this one take down “Sicko” at the box office, but I guess instead we’ll just have to see if it can outperform “Studio 60.” Should be an interesting face-off. Ready. Set. DVR!
