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

September 2, 2009 by  

Now this is what I call a fun night of TV!  Here’s to hoping the day flies by tonight so we can get this TV thing going. We’ve got SYTYCD, another look at the pilot of GLEE, the cast of HIMYM bantering their way through the CBS fall lineup and Jason Bateman on the late night couch.  That’s what I call a good night of TV! And that’s not even the half of it!

    I actually freaked out when I saw this because I thought I had missed the reairing of Glee. But I’m ok now lol.
