What the TV Addict is Watching: Thursday April 23

While we’re pretty sure Betty’s birthday wish involves running off with Henry and ditching his meddlesome ex [Jayma Mays] who decided to crash the party, our wish for Betty involves one word — contacts!

Shonda Rhimes promises fans [via TVGuide] that the five upcoming episodes of GREY’S ANATOMY brings, “a sense of hope.” Which is either a really good sign, or someone spent her WGA Strike watching a little too much political coverage.

Answers! Answers! Answers! [Maybe if we say it three times fast, they’ll come]

Since NBC’s doesn’t really believe in ‘promoting’ SCRUBS, it’s up to this TV Addict to remind you that starting tonight, the show’s switched time-slots with 30 ROCK.

That noise you hear… could it really be wedding bells…

30 ROCK, NBC 9:30PM
… or Jack celebrating his big promotion over rival Devin Banks [Will Arnett]…

… all quiet on the Lana front, she’s still in a coma…

Okay, it’s confirmed. The noise you’re hearing: a million SUPERNATURAL fangirls squeeing over the return of their favorite Winchester brothers.

    Um, yeah tonight is like a week long marathon of good tv watching in one night.

    I plan on watching The Office, 30 Rock, Scrubs, Ugly Betty, Grey’s Anatomy, LOST and Without a Trace. I save CSI for summer viewing.

    I’ve got my 2 TiVos working overtime tonight.

  • Linda B.

    My 2 Tivos will be working overtime as well. I think i’ll be watching Survivor, Grey’s Anatomy, Lost, and maybe a comedy or 2. I’ll be tivoing Smallville, Supernatural, and all the NBC comedies. 7 hours total.

    I’ll obviously be sitting in front of the tv tomorrow night to play catchup.

  • SimplyKimberly

    Don’t even talk about tomorrow night.

    Tomorrow night is science fiction night – The Sarah Jane Adventures, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica and Moonlight (Mick is back!).

  • Jacob

    What no live lost blogging tonight?

  • SimplyKimberly

    BSG has to really bring it tomorrow night because LOST just had the best episode of the week tonight.

    Ben Linus is just one frakking badass!

    And I hope my favorite character being such a big damned hero isn’t foreshadowing his imminent demise. I don’t want to watch the next 2 seasons without him.

  • Jacob

    Best episode of the week? Try of this season (yes better than ‘The Constant’) and quite possibly the most shocking moments of the show since Ana and Libby double kills and Locke in a wheelchair.

  • Hopefully amidst all the squeeing of SUPERNATURAL fangirls, you’ll fails to notice the giggling gee of this SUPERNATURAL fanboy too.
