Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Monday, April 13, 2009

April 13, 2009 by  

Welcome to the busiest night of TV all week – Monday! Rest up during the day kids because it’s going to be a long night of TV watching.

If Mondays weren’t messy enough as is, I’ll be on a plane to L.A. smack in the middle of the 8pm power hour. I’m going to be at the mercy of the TV on my Virgin America flight. Fingers crossed I get some good stations.  Because I am a huge dork I’ve already thought ahead to my in-flight entertainment options.  If the flight has CBS, I’m going to be watching THE BIG BANG THEORY and HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER from 8-9pm.  Why not CHUCK or HOUSE or GREEK?  Well, (a) CBS doesn’t have it’s sh#% together so I can’t watch BBT and HIMYM online (b) I’d rather have NBC count me in with the online watchers of CHUCK rather than not being counted at all, (c) I’ve already seen this week’s episode of GREEK, (d) Erik has HOUSE covered and I don’t feel the need to watch that one live.
