Tonight’s TV Addictions: February 25, 2009

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
LOST (9PM ABC, “A” in Canada)
We’d be far more excited for tonight’s Locke-centric installment had TV Guide’s listings not already spoiled it by revealing two very special guest stars. Seriously, what’s up with that?

LIFE ON MARS (10PM ABC, Global in Canada)
As if newspapers aren’t having a rough enough time as it is, this evening’s LIFE ON MARS puts another nail in print media’s coffin by quite literally killing off a newspaper columnist. Ouch!

AMERICAN IDOL (8PM FOX, ABC in Canada)
The only thing we can promise you with regards to tonight’s second set of 12 semifinalists is that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie most definitely will not be watching.


NEW & NOTABLE:
DAMAGES (10PM FX)
“They had to Tweeze that out of my kidney” gets our award for tonight’s ickiest episode title.

CRIMINAL MINDS (9PM CBS)
In these dire economic times, should we really be punishing a prostitute whose only crime is luring and murdering ethically bankrupt business executives? Discuss.

    Guest stars are WAY too hard to hide on a mega-profile show like LOST. The only way to remain ignorant is two-fold:

    1) Don’t use the internet
    2) Don’t read the name credits at the start of the episode. Some are better at ignoring these than others… but the actors unions require the names to be there.
