Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Sunday, November 8, 2009

November 8, 2009 by  

Today is one of those Fall New England days that people write poems about. It’s so beautiful out, with the sun shining and the temperature just coming close enough to 60 that you can be outside without a jacket. I hope it’s nice out where you are too.

Enjoy the day, and then settle in for a full night of TV. Don’t forget that tonight is the (sniff sniff) season finale of MAD MEN. I’m sure people will be buzzing about this one tonight.  And if you’re a fan of THE FAMILY GUY then you’re in for a treat.  Tonight there are two new episodes as well as a special featuring Seth McFarlane.

    Well, I’m still loyal to Three Rivers. Sue me, I like Katherine Moennig and Alex O’Loughlin, and the show isn’t half bad. Any idea how the ratings are? I know, probably not the best.

    I hope you are doing well enough that you can get out and enjoy the nice weather.

    Score!!! I could have sworn that last weeks episode was the season finale of Mad Men. It sure felt like the season finale. Maybe we’ll get more resolution in tonights episode.

    I’ll admit it. I’m really excited to see Pickler on EM:HE. She cracks me up.

    It’s beautiful in Chicago today too. Was able to go for a great run. Can’t really complain about the whole weekend.

    Ohio was very pretty, and your beginning comment reminded me of Robert Frost. “Apple Picking” or “Mending Wall”, something like that. Tonight I am DVRing the Seth and Alex Family Guy dealio and I’m going to catch up on White Collar from Friday night, and we’ll see what happens after that!
