Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Monday, June 29, 2009

June 29, 2009 by  

Happy Monday!  It’s another gorgeous sunny day here in Boston.  I can’t get over just how much sun we’ve had this June.  I’ve hardly been able to take my sunglasses off. [/sarcasm]

The rain isn’t the only reason for the doom and gloom I’m feeling.  At some point today yours truly is going to be without TV and internet.  And at this point in time I’m not sure when I’ll have the services back.  Tomorrow is the big move and my TV watching and blogging is going to depend on how quickly Comcast can get over to the new place to hook me up. to  Hopefully we won’t be out of touch for too long. But if I’m MIA for a few days, at least you’ll know why.

Since time is of the essence, let’s get talking about tonight’s TV, 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
