August 18, 2008 by  

Happy Monday to you all. While pulling together today’s ‘What to Watch’ list I was surprised to learn there was something besides the Olympic games on. Who knew? The Olympics may be exciting, but can they really hold a candle to the drama in the 4th season premiere of THE HILLS? Come on now.

Here’s a little taste of what’s on tonight…anything you’re interested in checking out?

Clearly NBC has a lot more Olympics coverage than what is shown here, but here are a few highlights of tonight’s primetime events.
