What to Watch…Tuesday, April 8, 2008

April 8, 2008 by  

There’s plenty of TV to choose from tonight, especially if you like reality shows. I might be live blogging IDOL, I haven’t decided yet. What do you think?

Here’s my big question though…who is still watching REAPER? I gave it a fair shot at the beginning of the season but it completely lost my interest. I don’t watch that much CW so I don’t see many promos for it and I often forget all about it. Are any of you watching? I’m intrigued. I’m still a fan of Bret Harrison (not his fault the writing sucks) and I’m a big fan of tonight’s guest stars – Michael Ian Black and Ken Marino. Maybe I’ll check it out.

American Idol | 8pm on Fox
American Idol The eight remaining finalists perform inspirational songs. Seriously? Inspirational songs? I know “Idol Gives Back” is tomorrow night, but I think this is the latest theme ever. I have to wonder what little David Archuleta’s Dad is going to choose for him this week. Cheese. I can just see Simon rolling his eyes now.

Dancing with the Stars | 8pm on ABC
The third results show of the season. Also: Sheryl Crow sings “All I Wanna Do” and “Out of Our Heads”; ballroom-dancing champions Delyan Terziev and Boriana Deltcheva perform; two teams of kids age 9 and under compete.

Big Brother 9 | 9pm on CBS
Big Brother 9 The Power of Veto competition is held. I’m not sure which houseguests should be allowed to participate but it shouldn’t be James. James should actually have all his house privileges revoked and have to stand in a corner for his ridiculous outburst the other night. I haven’t seen anyone cry like that since my three year old niece fell down and when boom. Pathetic James, just pathetic. And all this time I thought the gay porn was going to be the biggest regret of your life. Crying like a baby on national TV may just trump gay porn.

Boston Legal | 1opm on ABC
Boston Legal “Tabloid Nation”
Alan and Jerry go after a tabloid talk show when a women is murdered for turning down a marriage proposal on the air. Meanwhile, Denny hopes a dinner invitation from Shirley will rekindle their long-ago romance, and Lorraine advises Alan to seek help

Also playing…

  • NCIS | 8pm on CBS
  • Beauty & the Geek | 8pm on The CW
  • The Biggest Loser | 8pm on NBC
  • Just for Laughs | 8pm on ABC
  • Reaper | 9pm on The CW
  • Secret Talents of the Stars | 10pm on CBS
  • The Office | 10pm on TBS | Repeat – “Sexual Harassment”
  • The Office | 10:30pm on TBS | Repeat – “Office Olympics”

What will YOU be watching on this fine Tuesday evening?

    Well, tonight’s episode is a repeat but I have to say I am still watching Reaper… amazingly enough. Michael Ian Black and Ken Marino increased my enjoyment tenfold and, then, the last new episode actually finally gave us a hint at something deeper going on than just the week to week formulaic stuff we’ve had most of the season. So now I’m kinda looking forward to the next new episode.

    We are actually still watching Reaper. Totally agree that they dropped the ball on the promotion of this show. I really enjoy the show. it is one of those shows where the supporting cast makes the show. The devil and the sidekick Sock totally drive the show. They are both hysterical. I would give the show another shot.

    The only show I am very interested in tonight is NCIS. So excited it is back. I record Dancing with the Stars to watch Adam Carolla and see if he makes it to the next week, but I skip everything else. I can’t watch much reality because they drag everything out to a ridiculous degree.

    I am still watching Reaper, although I already saw the one tonight. I enjoy it, but probably wouldn’t miss it too much if it were gone. I think it has a lot of potential, but it doesn’t seem to be improving much as it goes on. The weakest part is his potential love interest from work. They have no chemistry and bore me to death. If she finds out soon what is going on, then I might become more interested.

    I still watch Reaper – and I agree, it’s getting better with this intimation of a deeper conflict. Plus Michael Ian Black and Ken Marino are awesome. I’d love to see them stick around.

    I watched Reaper when it first started, but got overwhelmed by all the shows I was watching. Something had to go, and unfortunately, Reaper got cut.

    I’m watching Idol and Hell’s Kitchen tonight. One question about Idol: since tomorrow is Happy Charity Night, will anyone be eliminated during that show? I think last year they rolled the votes over to the following week… any news yet if they’re doing that again?

    I still watch Reaper, too. although it is sometimes boring. Michael Ian Black and Ken Marino are such good actors (Vinnie Van Lowe!!) so I’m glad they are guests on the show! It definitely became more interesting with the addition of them; for once I’m actually looking forward to next week’s episode. oh and I’m also getting tired of Sam’s girlfriend, she needs to go in my opinion.

    I’m still watching Reaper. Ray Wise plays the devil with such unmitigated glee that I just have to smile. Also, the addition of the demon neighbors is a great new twist. Love them!
