THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE
Julia Louis-Dreyfus doesn’t just put an end to that silly SEINFELD curse. By taking a page from the Will Ferrell book of comedy and doing anything for a laugh, she eviscerates it. From verbal sparring with her ex-husband, to dating a twenty year old, all the while defending herself against television’s two funniest mean mommies [spin-off please!] OLD CHRISTINE is hands down our favorite femme fatale since THE COMEBACK’s Valerie Cherish. Why not help ensure CBS doesn’t trade OLD CHRISTINE for a newer and less funny model next season [see: RULES OF ENGAGEMENT] by tuning into tonight’s brand new episode following the return of TWO AND A HALF MEN at 9:30PM on CBS.
ELI STONE has something for everyone. It’s the ultimate TV mash-up. Medical mystery, law, order, ghosts, visions, mythology, romance and EVERWOOD alumni Tom Amandes. Heck, it even has a weekly musical number for the few fans old enough to remember COP ROCK. All it needs now is a break. As if having an inoperable brain aneurysm wasn’t bad enough, does Eli really need to find himself unemployed come fall 2008? Show a little compassion by tuning into ELI STONE this Thursday following a brand new episode of LOST at 10PM on ABC.
Something unexpected happened when this TV Addict stuck around for LIPSTICK JUNGLE’s third episode. I found myself starting to like these characters. Aside from really cool names, Nico, Wendy and Victory have it all. Money, power, looks and fame. The only thing that’s missing are viewers. Which you can easily remedy by tuning into the season finale this Thursday at 10PM on NBC.
ALIENS IN AMERICA
Just because the CW eliminated its comedy department doesn’t mean the laughter has to die. ALIENS IN AMERICA is undoubtedly the funniest show you’re not watching. Don’t believe me? Check out last night’s installment as Son Justin [Dab Byrd] ends up playing opposite his Mom Frannie [Amy Pietz] in a community production of RENT. Awkward and embarrassing yes, but like every episode of ALIENS, it’s balanced perfectly with humor and heart.
So you’re probably surprised to see LOST on this list. But what’s even more surprising is that in its most exhilarating season to date, LOST continues to hemorrhage viewers. According to Variety, last week’s incredible episode set a record low for the show. Which can only mean one thing. America is officially dumber than a fifth grader. Smarten up! Don’t miss Thursday’s mid-season finale at 9PM on ABC.
