K-Ville and Kermit Ruffins' "Drop Me Off in New Orleans"

Tonight's new episode of K-Ville on Fox (airs at 8pm CT) will include what I believe will be a long performance of "Drop Me Off in New Orleans" from Kermit Ruffins' 1533 St. Philip Street CD. Please write to Fox and tell them to renew the show next season. It is great for New Orleans. If you haven't seen it, it is a cop drama set in post-Katrina New Orleans. It has hired a bunch of local actors and crew, and has used a lot of local music.
