comic-con-chuck-vamp-diarie.jpgIf you're a TV fan and you're attending San Diego Comic-Con, you might want to park yourself in Ballroom 20 of the San Diego Convention Center on Saturday, July 24.

Starting at 10 a.m. with a "Chuck" panel featuring the cast and a "special video presentation," the ballroom will host a nonstop lineup of TV favorites that also includes "Futurama," "The Simpsons," "Fringe" and "The Vampire Diaries."

The day will also feature a screening and panel with the cast and producers of NBC's new series "The Event," The CW's hot pilot "Nikita," the cast of "Community" and "The Venture Brothers." The big Hall H events are a Warner Bros. showcase of three of its upcoming movies: "Green Lantern," "Sucker Punch" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," followed by a sneak peek of "Let Me In." Later, Marvel will present the first looks at "Thor" and "Captain America," and Kevin Smith will be back for a nighttime session.
