Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Wednesday, April 29, 2009

April 29, 2009 by  

Holy Shmoly! Tomorrow is the last day of April. How did that happen? I’ll be honest with you, this time of year is not good for bloggers like me (meaning bloggers who do this as a side gig rather than a full time job). The weather is getting nicer and it’s really hard to justify staying inside to watch TV and blog. I don’t want to wish for a weekend of rain, but it might be the only way I get to catch up. That reminds me…I need to play the lottery tonight. Maybe then I’ll be able to do this blogging this full time.

Did anyone happen to catch the GLEE promo during IDOL last night? A comment from GMMR made it into the promo! I know it’s kind of lame to post this, but I’d be lying if I wasn’t a little excited.

On to tonight’s TV…

Presidential News Conference | 8pm on ABC, CBS & NBC
President Obama takes to the air waves in prime time tonight.  I know, I know…it’s important to hear from our President.  But why can’t he be on during the 7pm hour?  Seriously. No one would care if Billy Bush or Mario Lopez got bumped.  This speech better be good if it’s bumping the season finale of BETTER OFF TED.  And I mean good…like they’ve solved the economic crisis, found a cure of swine flu, renewed CHUCK, and saved the auto industry good.

Lie to Me | 8pm on Fox

An undercover cop chasing a drug suspect mistakenly shoots an innocent teen, and Cal is hired to determine the man’s intentions. Meanwhile, Loker’s lie during a recent Ponzi-scheme investigation could come back to haunt him (and Torres as well) when Cal tells them that they’ll be deposed in a lawsuit over the matter. [GMMR: Seems like Fox is giving the ‘ol shun to Obama and not airing his press conference.  How very CW of you. I’ve heard rumors that ‘Lie to Me’ will air and that it won’t, but it’s still listed on Fox’s site so I’m going with it.]

American Idol | 9pm on Fox
One contestant is faced with elimination; former “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks performs a song from his latest album. [GMMR: Here’s to hoping The Gokey…or Matt Giraud goes home tonight. Taylor Hicks – this should be interesting.]

Lost | 9pm on ABC
“The Variable”
Faraday discloses what he knows about the island, beginning a time of reckoning. Eloise Hawking: Fionnula Flanagan. [GMMR: So excited!]

The Unusuals | 10pm on ABC

Cole gets a disturbing call from Frank Lutz; Delahoy and Banks investigate a series of bank robberies. [GMMR: I’m still not watching. At this point it’s ridiculous to think that I’ll get caught up. Oh well, can’t watch ’em all.]

Criminal Minds | 10pm on CBS
“The Big Wheel”
A serial killer (Alex O’Loughlin) sends the team a videotape, detailing one of his crimes and asking them to help him stop his murderous ways. [GMMR: Expect this show to see a big bump from MOONLIGHT fans.  Well, maybe not that big. I suppose if there were that many MOONLIGHT fans it wouldn’t have been canceled. Am I right?]

Also Playing…

  • America’s Next Top Model | 8pm on The CW: The five remaining contestants try to impress five different designers throughout the city.
  • CSI:NY | 10pm on CBS: The most exclusive jewelry auction of the year comes to an abrupt end when one of the appraisers is killed, forcing the CSI team to confront one of the greatest tragedies in human history.
  • Law & Order | 10pm on NBC: Detective Bernard and Lupo’s investigation into a series of hate crimes against Hispanic men leads to controversy.

May I ask…what will YOU be watching?

    Yay, congrats! You’re hitting the big time, Kath! When does Glee start? I wasn’t going to watch it, but then I saw Jane Lynch is in it so now I totally am.

    That’s great, Kath! Kudos to you! Maybe you won’t need that lottery after all and this can become your full time job.

    Wow, you’re famous! Up there with EW and Teen Vouge and TV Guide!

    I love the Unusuals most out of all the new shows. Too bad nobody else does.
    But I know what you mean about not being able to watch everything. That’s what DVD is for, right?

    Thank you CBS for being on demand so I can watch Criminal Minds later. Not something I would normally watch when there are models in competion! Plus isn’t The Cougar on TVLand too? Wednesday is the new Monday!

    Haha congrats on the shout out! AintItCool aint got nothing on you!

    Wednesdays are my second biggest TV night. We’ve got Top Model– love it, Criminal Minds– love it, LOST (yay!!!) and then me watching My Boys from last night because I’m a lazy a$$ who is in bed by 10:30. 😀

    Excited for Alex O’Loughlin to be back on my tv tonight. Apparently he has a new CBS pilot out, hoping to see it get picked up in the fall. Though it’s CBS so my hopes are not high. Moonlight did have a huge devoted following, look how many of us love Chuck and there’s a chance it might not come back. Not saying moonlight had as big of a following as Chuck does, but unfortunately sometimes the number of fans isn’t in direct correlation to the cancellation of a show.

    Yay for GMMR quote! Will be watching AI and Criminal Minds tonight. Can we keep Criminal Minds at 10 pm please? Makes my viewing night a little easier.

    It’s not lame it’s AWESOME! You deserve it!

  7. Kris on April 29th, 2009 6:52 pm

    I hope Gokey DOESN’T go home tonight on AI. But I think Matt needs to go. I’ll be upset if Danny goes.

    Also, I am SO EXCITED to watch Criminal Minds tonight! I’m a HUGE Moonlight fan (or was…I should say) and when I found out that Alex would be on, I immediately set it up to record on my DVR (though I’m going to watch it live anyway). I’m still holding out hope that Moonlight will come back someday…ok, no it won’t.

    I don’t suppose the episode title “42” is a reference to “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”?
