Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Tuesday, February 9, 2010

February 9, 2010 by  

It wasn’t that long ago that Tuesday was almost a throw away night for me. Maybe I’d be watching one or two shows bu that’s about it. Suddenly it’s filled to the bring with good TV.

Obviously I’m excited for the latest episode of LOST (if you were looking for my thoughts on last week’s premiere, I hope you checked out our “Two Idiots Talk Lost” podcast.

I’m really excited about AMERICAN IDOL too.  Tonight the contestants finally make it to Hollywood, and Ellen joins the judges for the first time. Finally we get to see what she’s all about.

Following IDOL is the series premiere of PAST LIFE on Fox. Sorry kids but this one didn’t grab me enough to get a spot on my already crowded Tuesday night schedule. But check it out if it looks interesting to you. You never know, you might like it.

    I love my Tuesdays right now. So easy with BL and TGW. But once Parenthood starts and Glee comes back, it’ll all go crazy with catching up on shows like my Mondays.
