Ok, readers. Don’t get spoiled here. I’m not going to make it my policy to always update you on what’s on each weeknight, but I feel like shows might get lost in the shuffle, so I’m doing it this week.
But tonight’s an odd night.
NBC’s got a new episode of Knight Rider on. I think it’s basically only new because they’re trying to get as many episodes of that out before canning it. It will be canned. I just don’t know when. Then we’ve got a Law and Order doubletake. A rerun of SVU, followed by a new episode of the original Law and Order. Ok, NBC’s sounding pretty normal.
The CW is premiering its new show Fear Is Real tonight. That show is odd in and of itself, and I won’t be watching it. Why? Because I’ll want them to kill people off like in horror movies, since this show is supposed to have that feeling like Saw. But it’s supposedly reality, so they can’t do that (nor would I want them to! Fiction killings only, people!). Supposedly they “kill” them off–meaning it’s fake–but if you know that, how is it scary? I don’t get the point. So I’m skipping out and waiting for my ANTM to come back. Then it’s got a rerun of 90210 (because Tuesday’s just not enough).
Where else is Tuesday not enough? ABC of course! Enter the oddness. In case you missed the hour of Scrubs last night (reviews coming up next), it’s on again! At 8:00. This show hasn’t gone through enough that now people won’t even know what time or day to watch it on its new station. Then after that, we’ve got those important shows like 20/20 and Barbara Walters, which are both new.
And on FOX? Two hours of Bones reruns. Odd only because I thought it was changing nights.
Now, for CBS. They’ve got an hour of rerun comedy (same old Wednesday night lineup) and then the People’s Choice Awards. I’m not a fan of the People’s Choice Awards, though I do hope Dr. Horrible wins in its category. All the show is is a popularity contest by the masses, and usually it means that the winners aren’t based on merit. Plus, you can vote more than once online, which me, a fan of science and accurate statistics, means it’s unfair. So boo on that.
What will I be watching? I hear Top Chef is new. So maybe we can get JC back here to do some more liveblogging. But I don’t know. Which do you want? Live or otherwise?
