Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, March 19, 2009

March 19, 2009 by  

I know you’re probably still recovering from Wednesday night TV, but buck up little solider because it’s Thursday and things ain’t any easier today. It’s tough to be a TV fan sometimes, isn’t it.  So much commitment. Oh the drama of it all.

Before we get to tonight’s programming, let’s close the loop on last night. Did you guys give BETTER OFF TED a shot?  What did you think? Click here to share your thoughts on last night’s new comedy.

And what about last night’s AMERICAN IDOL shocker?! I didn’t see that one coming.  What do YOU think about who got voted off IDOL last night?

My thoughts on LOST will be posted later today.

Ok enough about Wednesday, let’s move on to Thursday night TV. Any time there’s a new episode of THE OFFICE I figure it’s going to be a good day.  And tonight we’ve got John Krasinski in a tux. Can you beat that?! No? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

March Madness begins tonight!!  No, it’s not a count down to my birthday celebration on Saturday but rather some basketball tournament.  I know it’s a big deal but unless Fairfield U is playing I think I’ll pass. Don’t laugh, it’s happened before. Go Stags!

And our President sits down with Jay Leno for an extended segment.  It’s a big night.

Bones| 8pm on Fox

The body of a pregnant 16-year-old athlete found buried in a mound of salt in a city de-icing truck leads Booth and Brennan to the discovery that many of her teammates are pregnant or have babies after a pregnancy pact.

The Office | 9pm on NBC

[GMMR: Wait – any chance Violet’s pregnant patient will have a direct affect on how she feels about her own pregnancy? Sorry, but even in utero this kid is annoying.]

    woo hoo!! Thursday is my favoritee tv day. Greys Anatomy!! I’ll also be watching ugly betty, the office , 30 rock, and private practice. Oh no, I reallyyy hope Jim doesn’t get busted, that would depress me lol. Oh ya, me and my friend have to replicate a scene from our favorite tv show in school so we are doing the office!! I’m so excited, she is going to be Michael and I’m going to be Jim, even though we are both girls lol. We are doing the scene from season 3 “The Negotiation” when Michael is practicing negotiating with Jim who is pretending to be Darryl asking for a raise lol it should be interesting. Also, I recorded Better Off Ted but i haven’t watched it yet.
