Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Monday, May 19, 2009

May 18, 2009 by  

We’ve got an interesting night ahead of us.  A mixture of the old and the new.  We say goodbye for the summer to some of our favorite shows like HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, GOSSIP GIRL, 24, ONE TREE HILL, and more. But we’ve also got the premiere of the new season of THE BACHELORETTE. I’m partial to the single lady looking for a man to put a ring on it, but I my days of The Bachelor/ette are behind me.  Are you all into it?

What show’s finale are you most looking forward to?

Greek | 8pm on ABC Family

    Hey there! I’m just chiming in to say that I watched my first episode of Greek (the pilot) on Friday and I’ve now seen the first eight episodes of season one. I’m LOVING it! It’s so fun and adorable and surprisingly risque for a show on ABC Family. I assumed it would be a very watered-down and sanitized version of college life but it’s pretty honest about drinking, drugs and sex which is refreshing. The actor who plays Evan reminds me a lot of Jason Dohring which is never a bad thing, Rusty is adorkable and Cappie is made of win. I watched due to your enthusiastic support Kath, so thanks!
