Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Tuesday, September 29, 2009

September 29, 2009 by  

I’ll deny it if you tell anyone, but I kind of love Tuesday nights.  As of now I’m only regularly watching two shows on Tuesdays. It’s rather relaxing. As a TV lover I know I should be saying ‘bring it on’, but with Monday, Wednesday and Thursday so jam packed with good TV, a girl needs a breather every once in a while.  So thank you Tuesday, you rock!

Tonight we see more auditions for SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE.  If you’re going to be watching SYTYCD tonight, why not join me for a LIVE chat starting at 9/8c. We’ll watch together.  And make sure you’re following me on Twitter so you know when we get started.

I’m also going to be checking out the second episode of THE GOOD WIFE.  I’m trying to find out the interest level for this show on GMMR, so PLEASE drop a note in the comments if THE GOOD WIFE made your TV lineup. I think people may enjoy it, but I’m not sure it’s the type of show that will have an active online audience each week.  Maybe I’m wrong. Let me know.

If you like your TLC reality shows, then don’t miss what’s happening on tonight’s 18 KIDS AND COUNTING.  Read on to find out.

Rounding off the evening will be watching John Krasinski on THE TONIGHT SHOW with Conan O’Brien. John is always so fantastic when he’s sitting out there with his old boss.  I can’t wait! And don’t miss John’s boss, Ricky Gervais on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE.

    Tonight is light for me too; definitely agree a breather is so good. My picks are 90210 and The Good Wife. Also catching up on Monday fare that didn’t fit on the TiVo and that I’m behind on.

  2. Sara V on September 29th, 2009 9:17 am

    I’m a little bummed that SYTYCD is on tonight because I wanted to get some work done. Oh, who am I kidding? I’ll be there for the live chat!

  3. Patty on September 29th, 2009 10:52 am

    The Good Wife has made the cut for me…so far. It’s sad but true it doesn’t seem like much is holding my attention this year. I expect my TV will eb more than managable by the end of the month.

  4. Sara on September 29th, 2009 11:56 am

    Might have to record the Duggars because I’d heard about this ep and have been excited for it since then but with it in the middle of BL, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to switch. Depends on what’s going on I guess.

    Good Wife is totally on my schedule. I really enjoyed the first episode last week.

    And of course John on Conan, I’m worried about wedding spoilers though. I’m trying to stay as spoiler free as possible right now about that ep…

    Tuesdays are easy for me too. Never noticed before.

    Tuesday=NCIS night 🙂 I’m still not 100% on board with NCIS:LA but I’m willing to give it time

  6. seeleybaby on September 29th, 2009 4:11 pm

    I am going to watch last night’s CASTLE and The Good Wife. And I am going to try to join in on the SYTYCD chattie!

  7. Alison on September 29th, 2009 4:31 pm

    I’ll be watching 90210, Melrose Place, SYTYCD, and The Good Wife and I have to catch up on last night’s shows.

  8. grumpyoldman on September 29th, 2009 4:55 pm

    Biggest Loser, baby!!

    We are taping The Good Wife, but it’s on a short leash.

  9. Mandi on September 29th, 2009 6:22 pm

    You are so missing out by not watching NCIS. In the past several months, it’s become my favorite show on TV – bypassing Grey’s, OTH and, dare I say it, The Office. Tuesday’s have a whole new meaning now. Plus, it’s the most-watched show on TV right now with 20 million people tuning in for last week’s season opener.

    So check it out (ala Saturday Night Live variety).

    I like seeing all the love for NCIS!!! I thought NCIS colon L.A. started off as an “Alias-esque” episode (with a little humor thrown in) last week and then fizzled into a blah procedural. NCIS colon The Original still rocks. The season premiere last week was a great place to start if you haven’t followed the show. Tony is highlighted and it really takes viewers through who each of the characters are, while still discussing plot points that only hardcore viewers will appreciate and follow. We watched re-runs all summer on USA, so we are thrilled when they mention details from past episodes. I was sad to see only limited amounts of Gibbs and Abby (Kath, my heart ached when you called her the weird girl on their commercial—Abby is the BEST!) last week, but I can’t wait to see tonight’s episode!

    I watch Biggest Loser and the results of DWTS online. DVR SYTYCD because I like to rewind my favorite routines (the auditions are kinda boring, I fast forward through the obvious bad ones). Tuesdays are busy busy busy!

  11. Toast with JAM on September 30th, 2009 1:13 am

    P.S. Kath, you had mentioned that you were going to possibly make time to watch The Mentalist. If you’re going to watch any procedural, it should be NCIS. They have 5 great characters that they’ve developed, whereas on The Mentalist, Simon Baker is good, but the writing and the other characters really stink. The lady who plays his boss is totally unbelievable. Why do they name his character Jane? It is grating to hear whatshername calling him all the time “Jane! Jane!” Ugh. It annoys me. They are going to drag out the Red John mystery for the life of the show (like on Monk, I hear there’s an unsolved “who-killed-his-wife” that is being solved finally on the very last show?).
