Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Tuesday, March 31, 2009

March 31, 2009 by  

Noting you can say can tear me away from MY BOYS…MY BOYS. Yup, it’s back tonight with all new episodes. What makes this show so damn lovable?  I’ve always found fault with aspects of MY BOYS yet I’ve got this connection to the characters that I just can’t explain.  I’ve already seen the first two episodes but I’m excited to watch them again tonight. I’ve got some teasers and clips to share with in preparation for tonight’s return so check back later.

But P.J. and the guys aren’t the only ones hanging out tonight.  Over on ABC is the series (kind of) premiere of CUPID starring Bobby Canavale and Sarah Paulson. Let’s see if the show takes any better this time around. I’m not convinced it will.

But wait, there’s more.  Much more.  Check out a few highlights from tonight’s TV schedule.

American Idol | 8pm on Fox
The nine remaining finalists compete for eight spots.  [GMMR: I’m really worried about Matt Giraud. He had a stellar performance last week, and if that couldn’t keep him out of the bottom two I have to wonder if he’s lost some of his nerve. I really do think that people didn’t vote for him because they assumed he was in.  I can’t decide who I want off more – Megan Joy or Scott MacIntyre.  I’m thinking Scott.]

Reaper | 8pm on The CW
I Want My Baby Back”
Morgan tells Andi about Sam’s secret; Ben and Sock turn to Tony (Ken Marino) for help when an escaped soul leaves her child behind.

The Biggest Loser | 8pm on NBC
Past winners Ali Vincent and Michelle Aguilar return to the ranch to take over hosting duties from Ali Sweeney. Elsewhere, new arrivals change the competition; a player suffers a medical setback; a balance challenge suspends the contestants over a pool; and Bob holds last-chance workouts at the beach.

The Mentalist | 9pm on CBS
Russet Potatoes
Patrick and the team hunt for a criminal mastermind who hypnotizes people and tells them who to kill.

Cupid | 10pm on ABC | Season Premiere
In the opener, Trevor (Bobby Cannavale)—who believes he’s Cupid, the Roman god of love—is released from a three-month stint in a mental institution on condition that he attends a therapy group led by psychiatrist Claire McCrae (Sarah Paulson). He picks up with the same case that put him in the lockup: connecting a street musician (Sean Maguire) with his true love, whom he briefly met in a Dublin pub. [GMMR: I was a big fan of ‘Cupid’ during its first go around, back when Jeremy Piven was the lead. I can’t say that I was too fond of the pilot of this remake.  It underperformed all around – writing, acting, plot. But I’ll give it a few more episodes. Interested to hear what you all have to say about it.]

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit | 10pm on NBC
A young rape victim whose throat was cut draws a picture of the devil in an attempt to identify her attacker. While investigating the crime, detectives question a local priest (Robert Wisdom) whom neighbors claim is a devil worshipper.

My Boys | 10:30pm on TBS | Season Premiere
“Welcome Back Kalla Fotter”

    Have they put Season Two of My Boys on DVD yet? I can’t watch the third season until I’ve seen the second!

    Reaper has been pretty entertaining. The last ep had a pretty neat cliffhanger that should address something I’ve been waiting for since last year’s finale.

    I know this is lame but doesn’t 90210 come back tonight?
