Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Wednesday, September 16, 2009

September 16, 2009 by  

What?! It’s already Wednesday? Whoa, whoa, whoa…this week is going by a bit too fast. I’m leaving L.A. in two days and I’m just not ready. At least we are making the most of our time here.  Last night we saw the man who by the end of the night on Sunday, we can hopefully call an Emmy winner – Mr. Jim Parsons! Dan and I attended a taping of THE BIG BANG THEORY.  You’re going to love the episode filmed last night. I’ll be sure to let you know when it airs. So fun.

As I mentioned in a previous post, in a few hours we’re heading over to the set of CHUCK. Be sure to get in any questions you have may have for the cast soon.

Here’s a look at the Fall schedule for the big networks. Check out the notes at the end to find out when these Wednesday night faves will be premiering.

After all this, the least you could do is tell me what shows YOU will be watching tonight!

    Haha … the all male a cappella in my high school was called Acafellas!

    so excited for Glee!

    Acafellas … LOVE it! So … Mr. Schu is going to be running both New DIrections and Acafellas? In addition to teaching Spanish, and dealing with his bitch of a wife? Wow … busy man! I can’t wait for the episode. I’m trying not to spoil myself with the songs, as they seem to be released on iTunes earlier than the episodes themselves (what is with that??), so most of it will be a surprise!

    Also – SYTYCD YAY! And also YAY to Shankman as the third judge! So … will they continue to have guest judges as the fourth one? I’m confused, and want to see my Mia, so hopefully they just added another perm judge for fun.

    Acafellas was SO good! When I heard Bel Biv Devoe I couldn’t contain my smile. I also loved the rendition of Mercy by Duffy – I love that song! Mr. Schu is capital A Adorable, and Kurt had me crying – I had to re-watch his scene with Mercedes a few times because he was so good.

    And finally….an explanation for Cory Montieth’s twitter moniker, frankenteen! That was hysterical.
