Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Sunday, March 7, 2010

March 7, 2010 by  

Happy Oscars day to you! I know, this is a TV site but I’m actually really looking forward to the Academy Awards tonight. Of course I’m only excited to see Adam Shankman’s influence on the show. I really could care less who wins any awards, I’m just looking forward to seeing my favorite SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCErs and LXD (League of Extraordinary Dancers) who are taking the stage tonight. It’s the little things…

The Academy Awards officially gets underway at 8:30pm, but ABC’s red carpet special begins a half-hour earlier at 8pm.  If you’re looking for in-depth coverage the definitely check out E!.  Their awards pre-show with Ryan Seacrest starts at 6pm, but E! starts the party much earlier in the day, so be sure to check it out.

Anyone else excited to watch?
