Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Monday, June 22, 2009

June 22, 2009 by  

This is a cruel joke, right? It can’t possibly be Monday again, can it? Did we even have a weekend? Ugh. Not ready to go to work this morning, that much I can tell you.  But alas I must.  Let’s at least talk about what’s on TV tonight before I head into the office and start my non-TV related workday, ok?

Here’s just a few shows you might want to check out. If there are others I”ve missed, leave a comment below or sent me a tweet at

    I am on a personal mission to make J&K go away. I will be watching anything but.

    I want to watch Jon & Kate, but part of me doesn’t want to. I think that part will win.
