Tonight’s TV Addictions: January 18, 2009

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES (9PM ABC, CTV in Canada)
When neighborhood handyman Eli Scruggs dies, each housewife reflects on how much he affected their lives. While the rest of us ponder why on earth anyone continues to live on Wisteria Lane, the most dangerous street in America.

BIG LOVE (9PM HBO, TMN in Canada)

BROTHERS & SISTERS (10PM ABC, Global in Canada)

UNITED STATES OF TARA (10PM Showtime)
Fans of witty pop culture references will feel right at home with Diablo Cody’s first post-JUNO project.
