Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Wednesday, November 18, 2009

November 18, 2009 by  

Finally…it’s Wednesday. And this week there’s not anything standing in the way of our favorite Wednesday night shows.  MODERN FAMILY returns with special guest stars Ed Norton and Elizabeth Banks. SYTYCD is sending two more people home.  And the kids of GLEE are looking for love in all the wrong places.  I can’t wait!

If you’re a Top Model fan, tonight you’ll find out the winner.  Expect to never see or hear from this model again.  I’m not a fan of the show, but I’m still sad it’s ending.  Top Model is one of my favorite segments on’s ‘Realite’.

And finally, Robert Pattinson and David Letterman will be chatting it up tonight, as will Kristen Stewart and Jimmy Fallon. Oh this is going to be awkward.

Sorry for the radio blog silence yesterday. My back injury woes knocked me down in a big way. You know I’m in pain when I go almost the entire day without TV or being online. I even missed SYTYCD (ok I tuned in for the Travis Wall routine, but that’s all I saw.) Hopefully we can play a bit of catch-up today as tomorrow it’s going to be quiet once again as I head to the surgeon.

But let’s have fun while we can.  There are quite a lot of shows for you to pick from tonight.  Tell me, what gets priority viewing and what’s stored on the DVR to watch later on?

    Why did the idea of Courtney Cox having a nemesis make me smile so much.
    Also, always happy to see Elizabeth Banks (I was always rooting for JD to forgive her and stay with her on Scrubs).
