West Wing Not-Quite-Reunion, on Your TV Tonight

Bradley Whitford , The Best TV Show Ever

1. Sarah Silverman said in an interview a while ago that Bradley Whitford would be guest starring on the Sarah Silverman Program this season.
2. Yesterday, someone at the show tweeted that someone from Billy Madison would be on tonight's episode.
3. Bradley Whitford was in Billy Madison.
4. Then they tweeted that two people from The West Wing would be on tonight's episode.
5. Josh Malina (Will Bailey) tweeted a while ago that he and Whitford were going to be on the same Sarah Silverman episode this season.

So! It is POSSIBLE, I suppose, that three completely other people are going to be on the show tonight, and the Whitford/Malina episode will be later this season. But! When you hear hoofbeats, don't look for zebras.* I think it's pretty safe to assume that it's tonight. (And SOME West Wing folks will be on regardless, so...) Set your TiVos! Comedy Central, 10:30pm Eastern.

Why do I call it a not-quite-reunion? When I asked Malina whether he and Whitford were appearing together, he told me they were on the same episode but did not actually work together. (Because of this and their well-publicized practical joke war/the way they "hate" each other, I would like to nominate them as dark horse and possibly tongue-in-cheek candidates for this. But I doubt it's actually them.) But still! Two of my favorite actors in one half-hour episode. I will not complain.

UPDATE: After I wrote this post, Josh Malina confirmed that he will be on tonight's episode. All my detective work turns out to have been unnecessary. Ah well!

* This is a phrase that my physician mother actually uses, and that the interns were taught on Grey's Anatomy. I point this out only because I feel any time something on Grey's resembles actual hospital practices, it should be noted, as it is so rare.
