Tonight’s TV Addictions: March 1, 2009

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
THE SIMPSONS (8PM FOX, Global in Canada)
Yet again Bart illustrates that underachieving is the way to go when he alongside his fellow Springfield Elementary “underperformers” get an exemption from taking the test and are whisked away to Capital City.

BROTHERS & SISTERS (9PM ABC)
In an effort to single-handedly prop up the California wine industry, tonight’s two-hour installment promises double the surprises (A Walker health crisis!? A Walker exit!?) and assuredly, double the alcohol consumption.

UNITED STATES OF TARA (9PM Showtime)
While you’ll tune in for Toni Collette’s Emmy worthy performance, you’ll stick around for the equally unique, hilarious and touching supporting cast of characters including Keir Gilchrist, Nathan Corddry and Rosemarie DeWitt. The latter of whom delivered one of the funniest monologues in recent memory during last week’s very NSFW episode.


BIG LOVE (9PM HBO, 10 HBO Canada)
In what is shaping up to be a phenomenal third season, BIG LOVE continues to give us BIG reasons to keep shelling out the BIG bucks for HBO.

NEW & NOTABLE:
THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE (9PM NBC, E! in Canada)
For continuing to milk this tired an unentertaining franchise, we’re going to borrow a line from Mr. Trump himself and say Ben Silverman: You’re Fired. Or at the very least, you should be.
