Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Tuesday, June 2, 2009

June 2, 2009 by  

Wowza! Tonight’s TV lineup is bleak. When ACCORDING TO JIM is one of the few shows with new episodes you know it’s got to be June.  So sad.

How about we skip right over the barren prime time schedule and go right into late night? Here’s just a few of the guests hanging on the late night couches tonight:

  • John Krasinski on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’
  • Tom Hanks and Green Day will be on ‘The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien’
  • Denis Leary will be chatting with Craig Ferguson on ‘The Late Late Show’
  • Steve Martin, Paul Simon & Vanessa Williams will be in NYC with Jimmy Fallon
  • Danny McBride & Nia Vardalos will be talking with Jimmy Kimmel

Seems late night is the place to be.

But alas, there are still a few prime time shows to check out.  Here are a few of them…

According to Jim | 8 & 8:30pm on ABC
Ep: 1: Jim is haunted by a ghost when he buys Cheryl a diamond necklace that was taken off a dead woman. Ep. 2: Jim must stand trial in heaven after he chokes on a shrimp puff. [GMMR: Can I please share with you the title of tonight’s first episode? It’s “Diamonds are a Ghoul’s Best Friend” – I kid you not.]

Earth 2100 | 9pm on ABC
Scientists predict that without action, population growth, climate change and resource depletion over the next 100 years could result in catastrophe. [GMMR: Just in case you weren’t worried enough with the economy and planes disappearing over the ocean. Watch tonight’s uplifting program about how you are killing your future children and their children.  Good times. Cheers!]

Inside the Obama White House | 9pm on NBC
Brian Williams will take viewers “Inside the Obama White House,” for an exclusive, wide-ranging look at what happens throughout the White House and the West Wing during a day in the life of the Obama administration. There will be more than a dozen crews and cameras strategically placed throughout the White House, capturing nearly ever aspect of the day. This unique documentation will consist of behind-the-scenes footage, as well as interviews with key administration players and those who make the West Wing work. [GMMR:I think this is going to be very interesting. It’s like “The West Wing” reality show.  Perhaps the we’ll see the real life Josh Lyman and the real life Matt Santos having a quick hallway chat full of intelligent but funny banter.  Someone keep an eye on “backpack”]

Mental | 9pm on FOX
“A Beautiful Delusion”
Jack and Veronica are called to treat a woman (Nicholle Tom) who believes she is pregnant, but the ultrasound reveals there is no baby; Jack searches for his mentally ill sister, who is homeless and wandering the streets of the city. [GMMR: Can you please raise your hand if you’re going to be watching tonight? I’m trying to get a sense as to whether or not we should be following the show on GMMR.]

Just Because…

Selfishly I’m highlighting two episode of THE OFFICE tonight.

If you’ve never seen the pilot, it’s on at 10pm tonight on TBS.  And to this day, my very favorite episode, “Diversity Day“, is airing right after at 10:30pm.  So excited to see both these episodes again. It’s going to be a hoot to see how different everyone looked. And let’s not forget Pam falling asleep on Jim’s shoulder. Ah, young love.  How far they’ve come. Can’t wait!

What will YOU be watching tonight?

    Raising my hand to say I will be watching Mental tonight (and taping the WH show as I love Brian W. and well yes, I like POTUS a lot too.) I think I’m going to have to start taping late night as it is sounding pretty good these days.

    *raises hand* I’m watching too!

    Is there a website that has a comprehensive listing of late night talk show guests evey day? My comcast dvr is terrible for having the proper guests listed and I cannot miss a J Kras appearance!

    I tried to watch Mental… pilots are often so painful to watch with all the future storylines being thrown at us. Maybe I love House too much because I prefer my doctors cranky and sarcastic!

    Diversity Day… the one that got me hooked.

    If I get home early enough, I will be watching Mental. Or at least putting it on the DVR. I still have last weeks I haven’t watched yet. It’s been a busy week!

    I watched last weeks mental. I just concluded a called called “Law and Psychiatry” for my 2L year, and thought this would be an interesting summer series.

    I like Mental well enough as a summer fill in… new I had seen Jacqueline McKenzie somewhere, and it came to me…she was Diana on the 4400.
