On TV Tonight: Too Many Good Shows
Thursday has got to be the best night of TV for each network. You need 2 TiVos to keep up…
ABC: ABC is the only channel not showing new shows tonight. They are running “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.” A great movie, but I can’t watch movies with commercials.
CBS: Probably the best 1-2 punch of the night on CBS. At 8:00, Survivor: Guatemala. The tribes are merging and there seems to be some good drama coming from last week’s preview. At 9:00 CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is back from a few weeks off. At 10:00 Without a Trace is a good alternative if you don’t like ER.
NBC: NBC starts with comedy, moves to reality, then transitions to drama. Joey is on at 8:00 followed by the final season of Will & Grace at 8:30. Joey isn’t doing as well as the network had expected, but it’s a funny show in its own right. The Apprentice, the good one, is on at 9:00 and we’ll see the 10th, and possibly the 11th and 12th, person fired tonight. NBC ends the night with the long running ER, with guest star John Leguizamo.
FOX: At 8:00 The OC is back all new after the baseball break. Maybe I’m tainted being from Orange County, but this show is the best. I hope Ryan gets into a fight with some preppy kids tonight. At 9:00 is the new show Reunion. Each episode represents a year in 6 close friends lives from 1986 (high school graduation) until 2006 (20-year reunion). The first episode shows you someone was murdered and one of them is the guilty one. Its a good concept but not sure how’ll they’ll do season 2.
WB: At 8:00 is Smallville followed by Everwood at 9:00. I bet Superman saves the day.
UPN: UPN has a few really good shows (Veronica Mars,) but they always get lost in the shadows of the big networks. Everybody Hates Chris at 8:00 is a perfect example. Its a really funny show, and I’d say its like The Wonder Years and Malcolm in the Middle, if those shows were written by Chris Rock. Very funny if you get a chance to see it. At 8:30 is Love, Inc. followed by Eve at 9:00 and Cuts at 9:30.
Great night of TV. Have fun watching.
