What to Watch…Tuesday, April 29, 2008

April 29, 2008 by  

Another Tuesday night. There’s lots of TV to check out tonight, but I don’t have a lot taking up space on my TiVo. Tuesdays are relaxing – I like relaxing.

American Idol | 8pm on Fox
American Idol The final five contestants take on the music of Neil Diamond with Neil himself as their mentor. I’m a big Neil fan myself and I’m really excited to hear the Idols sing his songs, but let’s think about the overall demographic of Idol and more importantly – the voting audience.Next season I’d like to see mentors that are a little more relevant and contemporary.

Andi sees Sam behead a demon and thinks he’s killed someone, so Sam makes a deal with the Devil. Meanwhile, Ben gets married under unusual circumstances, and Tony (Michael Ian Black)

    i am looking forward to Neil on AI as well. I can understand your point about the Neil Diamond demo, but there are so many bands that are covering his stuff these days, and all the kids who were made to listen to his older stuff in the car while growing up (ND is the only person I think my mom played) know all those songs- Forever in Blue Jeans, Sweet Caroline, etc.

    Because of that, I have an appreciation for his new stuff as well, but don’t tell my mom! 🙂

    Mostly, I’m interested in seeing the song choices tonight!

    Just two shows for me tonight, and of COURSE they conflict! (Damn that I don’t have a TiVo). SVU and Women’s Murder Club at 9 pm!!

    Just so you know, the description of Reaper is cut off mid-sentence.
    I feel this show has kicked into gear pretty well. I am looking forward to the newest ep.
    I also haven’t watched BBT and HIMYM yet and will probably do that tonight.
