WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
THE BIG BANG THEORY (8PM CBS, CTV in Canada)
Wolowitz is a lean, mean love machine… if only in his own mind. But when Penny tries to burst his bubble, it’s gonna cause problems for everyone… including a slew of battle bots!
24 (8PM FOX, Global in Canada)
We get another two hours of Day 7, and things will begin to make a little more sense tonight. Actually, most of you probably figured out some of what will be revealed. Look for some familiar faces to return and a major development in the annoying-but-apparently-necessary-on-this-show secondary storyline involving the First Husband’s situation. Sorry, but I’m already bored with that plot. Sherry Palmer he ain’t!
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (8:30PM CBS, E! in Canada)
Remember the famous episode of SEINFELD where Jerry and Elaine thought they could be friends with benefits? Remember how badly that turned out? Well, tonight we’ll find out if that notion works any better for Robin and Ted. On the downside, Spencer & Heidi of THE HILLS, along with some of their equallyuntalented reality brethren, do cameos.
NEW & NOTABLE:
THE BACHELOR (8PM ABC)
Find out tonight who gets the season’s first kiss. Which leads me to wonder if before throwing these people into a cesspool of spit-swapping, the producers give them all STD tests? Before the night is over, three ladies — and I use the term loosely — will be gone. One, perhaps wisely, by choice!
ONE TREE HILL (9PM CW, SunTV in Canada)
It’s a good news/bad news scenario tonight. The bad news: Chad Michael Murray is at it again. The good news: This time, he’s only directing, and it seems unlikely that position will allow him to do nearly as much damage as his disastrous attempt at writing an episode yielded earlier this season. In this outing, word of Peyton’s condition spreads, and Mouth has to figure out if he can live with Millicent’s fling.
KYLE XY (9PM ABC Family)
As the third season begins, its bellybutton-less boy to the rescue in the wake of Amanda’s kidnapping.
WORST WEEK (9:30PM CBS)
Sam accidentally gets a glimpse of Angela’s… um… “girlies”. And then kinda writes about it.
TRUE BEAUTY (10PM ABC)
The problem with this show is that the beauties on this show aren’t actually all that hot. Sure, most of us would kill or die to look like them, but… this is the best they could find? There is, however, a certain joy to be found in watching obnoxious hot people being mocked for their lack of inner beauty. Or, um, human decency.
GENERAL HOSPITAL (10PM SOAPnet)
Funniest sentence of the day: “Nikolas and Nadine take on the government.”
