Tonight’s TV Addictions: March 2, 2009

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
THE BIG BANG THEORY (8PM CBS)
That big bang you just heard was Wolowitz finally getting some action.

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (8:30PM CBS)
How is this for huge news? On tonight’s very special episode, we guarantee you’ll meet a mother. Not the mother mind you, but a mother nonetheless.

CHUCK (8PM NBC)
Since quality storytelling and the most likable cast on television has done little to attract America’s attention, who are we to blame co-creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak for tonight’s shameless stunt casting of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Brooklyn Decker.

NEW & NOTABLE:
24 (8PM FOX, Global in Canada)
With Jack continuing to root out conspirators inside the government, Agent Walker leading the investigation on the ground and the villainous Jonas Hodges (Jon Voight) exacerbating the situation, are we the only ones who regret having jumped off the 24 bandwagon six episodes ago?

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT (9:30PM CBS)
Tonight’s third season opener is entitled “Russell’s Secret.” Which we can only imagine is one helluva doozy considering he’s managed to keep this series on the air for three seasons.

SAVING GRACE (10PM TNT)
A sure sign March Sweeps has arrived is when serial special guest star Christina Ricci (GREY’S ANATOMY, ALLY MCBEAL, JOEY) arrives on the scene for the first of a three episode guest arc.

    Finally, we get to meet Barney’s mother. It should be very funny, I can’t wait…

  • Gabi

    Have you stopped watching 24?? It’s so good this year!

  • Gabi,
    I know I know I know! I just haven’t had the time. Might try and catch up with a mini-marathon this weekend!

  • TVFan

    I have to meet anyone who watches Rules of Engagement.

  • I’m so addicted to Chuck–I wish more people would watch! I’m really in love with anything Josh Schwartz is involved with–The OC and Gossip Girl all the way! He’s promoting some new online series on TheWB.com right now called Rockville, CA, which looks pretty cool. There always seems to be a geeky cute guy with quick wit in all his projects–I wonder if that’s on purpose, haha. I think Josh is answering fan questions right now on TheWB.com message board–maybe he has plans to expand the amazingness of Chuck to a broader audience…
