Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, February 26, 2009

February 26, 2009 by  

ou know, I totally forgot it was Thursday until someone just now reminded me.  How sad is it that I don’t know the day of the week until I update the TV spotlight.  I’m ready for a little 30 ROCK.  And don’t even get me started about my excitement for tonight’s AMERICA’S BEST DANCE CREW.  I heard good things from those who were at this week’s live taping.

But I must say that I was devastate to learn that THE OFFICE is a repeat again tonight! I thought since the next new episode was going to address Valentine’s Day that it would at least run during the same month as the holiday.  Completely bummed.

Still, lots to choose from.  What does YOUR TV lineup look like tonight?

Find out who will be moving on in the competition.  The top guy, the top girl and the person who receives the 3rd most votes will move on to the Top 12. [GMMR: Did you vote in the GMMR poll yet? DOOGIE !!!]

America’s Best Dance Crew | 10pm on MTV
The final three crews – Quest Crew, The Beat Freaks and the Fly Khicks (how are they still there?) – take on dance styles from the history of hip-hop.  [GMMR: A challnege like this makes me wonder how a crew like Dyanmic Edition would have survived.  Face it – it’s a hip hop competition people, not just a dance crew competition.]

    Why are there so many re-runs this season (all of the shows) .I don’t remember it being this bad a couple of years ago.

    I read somewhere that the February 2009 sweeps were moved to March in order to avoid any “disruptions” caused by the digital switch. So maybe the networks are saving some shows for March?

    Oh! I thought it was weird that so many February episodes were repeats! Maybe Natasha’s right.

    Best teaser line ever: “Tracy’s interview with Larry King sends the city into a panic.”

    Totally over Salma Hayek, but did enjoy the church scenes in the Valentine’s episode.

    I can’t wait to watch ER. Love having Carter back and all the vague comments that he was making last week. I never watch ads so I was guessing that he and Kem both got sick in Africa and that she died. He said she was with her parents in Paris and I guessed that she was buried with her parents there. It’s more fun to guess when you don’t read any previews. Plus, I always blamed Kem for breaking up Carter and Abby, who are my favorite couple, so I wanted her character to suffer some terrible fate. I still don’t buy the Kovac and Abby coupling. Carter and Abby always had that CONNECTION. Loved that Carter and Sam scene where they talked about their ex’s.

    Noah Wylie sure nailed the emotion of someone going through dialysis (sp?) with that look on his face at the end of last week. He just looked horrible!

    I believe that the Secrets of the Furious Five was some kind of cartoon special based on the Kung Fu Panda movie. At least that is what it sounded like from the listing on my t.v. I recorded it last night in case it was something my kids would like, but we haven’t watched it yet.
