What to Watch…Tuesday, September 9, 2008

September 9, 2008 by  

Bad blogger.  Bad blogger.  It’s closing time here on the East Coast and I’m now just getting a chance to talk to you about tonight’s kickass TV lineup.  So much to see and most of it great!

Tonight’s big premieres include PRIVILEGED and the much anticipated FRINGE (which we will be discussion in depth tomorrow so be sure to take note).  With tonight’s second episode of the all new 90210 we’ll see if the show can keep up the buzz and the ratings of last week’s premiere. One of my favorite summer shows WIPEOUT is back with an all new episode tonight, and BIG BROTHER‘s live show will reveal the final four houseguests left in the game. Based the rumors I’ve heard I think it’s going to be quite the eviction ceremony tonight.

A thousand apologies for just getting around to posting this now.  But better late than never, right?

    Fringe was amazing and Privileged was great too! Didn’t catch BB or 90210 tonight but plan on watching them as soon as I can.

    I really liked Privileged but was somewhat disappointed with 90210 this week. Didn’t we have almost the exact same episode in the original version (Kelly’s mom drinks, Kelly ends up at the Walshes, Walshes talk sense into Kelly’s mom). Also, I felt that Kelly’s mom was way more mean to Erin than she ever was to Kelly. I liked the idea of her finally getting her life together and wasn’t a fan of her still being a mess after all these years.
