Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Wednesday, April 4, 2012

April 4, 2012 by  

Are any of you watching BENT? I know it will get canceled thanks to NBC’s brilliant marketing, but I’m really enjoying it.

If you’re looking for something more dramatic, tonight is the series finale of ONE TREE HILL. The 7th-grader in me is pretty devastated.

Look below to see what else is new tonight!

America’s favorite comedy sweetheart sends a fearless band of senior citizens to the streets to pull shockingly hilarious pranks on the younger generation in this outrageously funny “hidden camera” show. Seven-time Emmy Award winner Betty White stars and executive produces the series, which delivers cleverly-crafted comedic stunts, candid moments and priceless reactions captured by hidden cameras. Sassy seniors target unsuspecting young “marks” with their irreverent behavior, from pouring a late spouse’s ashes on a favorite park bench or writing up tickets for absurd, made-up violations, to asking strangers to watch a runaway motorized scooter or pretending to see a dead person who appears all too real. The inimitable and charming Betty White stars in brazenly funny sketches, providing saucy commentary between the pranks and sharing her engaging, comical pearls of wisdom.

Meanwhile Jessica adjusts to her new single life by reconnecting with old friends like Rav; however her new efforts meet the critique of the friends’ precocious nine-year-old neighbor, Queenetta. [GMMR: Hey all, it’s Kath jumping in to say that I have watched the series premiere of this show twice and I thought it was really funny!  The leading ladies are hilarious. I know it’s NBC and that alone should make you skeptical, but definitely check it out.]

So much more. Keep reading…

    Glad you’re watching it! I love him, too. Popped collars are only acceptable when he’s wearing them.
