What to Watch…Friday, August 8, 2008

August 8, 2008 by  

Wait, what’s this? A GMMR entry not dedicated to SYTYCD?  Shocking, I know.  But yes, I guess the show (or blog) must go on.  There’s new TV to watch tonight and I guess it’s my job to give you a heads up as to some of your options.

No TV for me tonight or for this weekend for that matter.  After work I’m heading to Vermont to kick off the wedding weekend for my friends Gretchen & Erik.  I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate with them.  CONGRATS GRETCHEN & ERIK!!

Oh, TV?  Yeah…here you go.

And may I just say that if we in fact see John Krasinski & Zach Levi acting together I might just pass out from the joy of it all.]
