Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, August 20, 2009

August 20, 2009 by  

I woke up this morning and thought it was Wednesday. It’s not.  It’s Thursday. Even better!  I know this is sad to say, but during most of the year I immediately know what day of the week it is by what shows are on TV.  The summer confuses me a bit. Yikes, I need to get a life.

But enough of that nonsense – big news tonight my friends…PROJECT RUNWAY IS BACK! A 2-hour All Star Challenge kicks off the new season of PROJECT RUNWAY, now on Lifetime. I’m so excited! Please tell me you’ll be watching too!

Here are just a few shows you’ll fund on TV tonight. Which shows will YOU be checking out? Leave a comment here or send me a message via Twitter.

    OMG, way too much to watch tonight…a true embarassment of TV riches. Off to draw up a watch/DVR plan now.

    Kath, I’m with you. I get so confused with days, but during the regular tv season that never happens, because I refer to the days by their shows. “Oh, it’s 30 Rock Night”, or “Chuck/House Night”. Tonight is “Supernatural Night”, because I just started watching, and am catching the CW reruns of the last season.
