Tonight’s TV Addictions: March 29, 2009

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
KINGS (8PM NBC, CityTV in Canada)
Dear Prince Jack, there are far easier ways to tarnish David’s heroic image than a night out on the town. Just ask this guy.

THE NO. 1 LADIES DETECTIVE AGENCY (8PM HBO)
Lady detectives, this we gotta see!

FAMILY GUY (9PM FOX, GlobalTV in Canada)
When he’s unable to get his question answered at Quahog’s STAR TREK Convention, Stewie does what so many of us Comic Con nerds attendees only wish we thought of first: Builds a transporter and beams the entire cast of “The Next Generation” into his bedroom.

AMERICAN DAD (9:30PM FOX, GlobalTV in Canada)
FYI: Seth Macfarlane’s far less popular animated series may not have the entire cast of “The Next Generation,” but Patrick Stewart does lend his voice, alongside Amy Sedaris, Meg Penner and Carolyn Gilbert-Lawson.


NEW & NOTABLE:
THE UNIT (10PM CBS)
When Jonas and Mac work undercover to locate the terrorist responsible for killing the US Vice President, the mission doesn’t go as planned. Here’s a question (having never seen a single episode of THE UNIT): Do the missions ever go as planned?

GOODFELLAS (8PM ION)
Good News: GOODFELLAS is one of those movies (alongside THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION and MR. HOLLAND’S OPUS) that we cannot stop watching if we happen to come across while flipping. Bad News: There is very little chance we’ll ever flip to ION. Seriously. Does anyone get this channel?

JIM GAFFIGAN: KING BABY (9PM Comedy Central)
Jim Gaffigan performs in Austin. Topics include, waffles, bacon, bologna and bowling. Topics not included: An apology for starring in “The Love Guru”

    While the story line involving meg finding religion wasnt hilarious the star trek story with stewie was hilarious!

  • Nick

    Regarding the above mentioned religious storyline on Family Guy: Seth MacFarlane is a very funny guy, but he sure better hope there isn’t a God, because….whoo boy. His atheism was on full display last night, burning books that might be supposedly dangerous to religion, including “Basic Reasoning for First Graders.”

  • Josh C,

    The only funny thing about Meg’s story-line is that Seth MacFarlane warned us ahead of time that we might want to change the channel. And as for the TNG reunion, with the exception of Denise Crosby getting stunned into the wall — highly disappointing.
