Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, June 25 ,2009

June 25, 2009 by  

There’s a lot of great scripted shows for you to check out tonight.  Quality TV. Real entertainment.  And I don’t watch any of them.  My loss, I’m sure.  For me, it’s all about the SYTYCD results show.  I’ll be live blogging starting at 9pm, so I hope you’ll make plans to join in on the conversation.

And if you’re in NYC today, you might want to avoid the area around The Ed Sullivan Theater.  David Letterman’s guests tonight are Johnny Depp and Megan Fox.  It’s possible that the building might spontaneously explode from that level of hotness. And CHUCK fans be sure to tune into Carson Daly as Zachary Levi will be a guest.

Which shows will YOU be checking out tonight? Leave a comment here or send me a message via Twitter.

    i really find it hard to believe you arent watching burn notice, royal pains, and the listener. come on. thats what dvrs are for.

    The Listener started out really slow but I kept with it due to the total hotness brought by the main character (can’t remember his real name). But, this last episode, it finally started to get a little more interesting. That’s not me saying I like it yet but I suppose I’ll keep watching. I won’t be heartbroken if (when) it gets canned. If this was on in the fall, it wouldn’t have stood a chance with me though.

    I am really digging Royal Pains so far – a great, fun show.

    I posted last week about the Listener. I like it and I will continue to watch it. I know that if I get caught up in the show that there is already a full season shot and I won’t be left wondering wtf?

    I think NBC is going to give it the full run this season, for one main reason – MONEY! It’s a Canadian show, which means it’s cheaper to shoot, cast and produce. Plus, what else is there? The pickins’ are slim folks.

    Last Friday I Hulu-ed the first three episodes of Royal Pains. I was very impressed by it. Although the story lines so far have been a bit predictable,It actually captured my attention. I think sometimes it has to be for the initial character build. The season recording is already set.

    I too am liking Royal Pains, the pilot being the best so far.
