Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, February 5, 2009

February 5, 2009 by  

Happy Thursday TV my friends.  I hope you’ve got your remote in hand because it’s going to be a busy night surfing among the channels.

A few notes…

  • CBS is airing reruns of THE BIG BANG THEORY and HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER tonight.  Not sure why, but I personally would love to see both these shows air on Thursday nights.  It would make my Mondays so much easier.  ABC has announced that it’s going to a new Thursday night comedy block, so perhaps CBS is testing out the same. Let’s do it CBS!
  • Don’t be swayed by the deceptive ABC promos.  Tonight’s GREY’S ANATOMY and PRIVATE PRACTICE and NOT big crossover episodes like ABC would have you believe. The scenes they are showing with Addison and Derek aren’t even from this week’s ep.  I just wanted to set your expectations because I was excited for the crossover and was bummed when it didn’t happen. I think we’ll have to wait another week. On a side note, both GREY’s and PRIVATE PRACTICE are actually pretty good this week.

Lots and lots to choose from. What will YOU be watching?

    Oh GMMR, cannot concur with moving BBT and HIMYM to Thursdays…I already need to manage my live v. DVR viewing within an inch. I do watch the Ugly Betty, Gray’s line-up then there’s comedy night done right. I couldn’t handle it.

    GMMR, I thought you’d want to know that the Bones time is still wrong on the full post. It airs at 8pm, not 9pm.

    And thank god, too. I don’t know how I would choose between The Office and Bones. I tremble at the mere thought.
