Tonight’s TV Addictions: January 24, 2009

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
THE SIMPSONS (8PM FOX, Global in Canada)
In her twentieth year on television, Lisa Simpson continues her remarkable streak of making really cool friends. This week’s “BFF”: Special guest voice Emily Blunt (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA)

UNITED STATES OF TARA (10PM Showtime)
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT Alum Alert! Tony Hale plays Marshall’s English teacher who brings out the Martha Stewart side of Tara’s personality.

NEW & NOTABLE:
THE LAST TEMPLAR (8PM NBC)
In deciding whether or not to tune into the first part of tonight’s four hour NBC miniseries, here is all you really need to know. The producers behind this derivative DA VINVI CODE rip-off are also responsible for last year’s Sci Fi bomb FLASH GORDON.

GOLDFINGER (8PM BBC America)
Do you expect us to talk? Why no TV Addict reader, we expect you to watch… one of Bond’s finest adventures ever.

SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS (8PM TNT & TBS)
EW.com took the words right out of our mouth when they wrote, “Looking for a good drinking game? Chug every time an actor goes on about how this award means the most because it’s from actors. You know, not those — blech! — directors or screenwriters.”

  • Aleks,

    Sorry for the lack of BIG LOVE love. It definitely has a season’s pass on my PVR. I just couldn’t think of anything interesting to say about it.
