Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Tuesday, December 8, 2009

December 8, 2009 by  

Hey GMMRers! Happy Tuesday. Just wanted to check in to say Hi. GMMR will still be somewhat quiet over the next few days as I continue to recover from my back surgery, but not all is completely dark. We’ll have a few updates so keep checking back.

Tonight’s TV is a mix of new episode an holiday specials. BETTER OFF TED returns tonight. If you like THE OFFICE and ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT you might want to give the show a shot as it has the same sensibility. And if you haven’t already entered out BETTER OF TED S1 DVD Contest, then get on it.

For THE BIGGEST LOSER fans, tonight’s the night. See who wins the big prize!

Tonight the Top 8 dancers compete on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. I’m especially excited to watch tonight as I’m getting together with our friends from the Woo whom we watched all of S5 with (SYTYCD podcast listeners know Heather, Whit and Jess well). I haven’t been out of the house much over the past few months so it’s going to be awesome to see my friends!

    Hope you are feeling better. Sounds like it if you are up to getting out of the house!

    This season is FLYING! I don’t know if it’s just because I wasn’t into it much this past summer or if the fall is so busy time flies but I love the couple left (except Mollee of course!) and will be sad to see anyone go. I am excited about tonight. I saw the pairings and dances and it’s gonna be GREAT!
