Tonight’s TV Addictions: April 8, 2009

SCRUBS (8PM ABC, CityTV in Canada)
Good News: The Janitor and Lady plan a fake wedding in the Bahamas in an effort to score gifts. Bad News: The plot backfires when all of the invitees accept.

LOST (9PM ABC, “A” in Canada)
Finally, one LOST mystery definitively solved: Ben is not Jewish. How else to explain the fact that he decided to call upon good Ol’ reliable smokey [monster] to atone for his sins on Passover rather than Yom Kippur!

Moments before one of the remaining IDOL contestants [cough*cough*Scott MacIntyre*cough] has their dreams crushed in front of an audience of millions, Kellie Pickler performes the song “Best Days of Your Life.” Awkward.

THE UNUSUALS (10PM ABC, GlobalTV in Canada)
Has LIFE ON MARS ruined New York City-set police dramas for eternity? By which we mean, has Det. Casey Shraeger (Amber Tamblyn) really transferred from vice to homicide? Or will she awaken in sixteen episodes only to discover that it was all a dream and that it turns out she’s actually locked inside a cryogenic chamber on her way to Mars. Stay tuned…

LIE TO ME (8PM FOX, Global in Canada)
Would a beautiful woman really lie to an internet entrepreneur and marry him for his money? What’s this show called again?

Are we the only one’s wondering what exactly Clay Aiken is doing judging models and at an acting class?

CSI: NY (10PM CBS, CTV in Canada)
A man in shot to death in an empty theater, but Stella soon realizes that the crime was staged…. well, that and WATCHMEN really didn’t hold up at the box office.

    this looks like a super-mega important lost episode tonight. It is Ben-Centric after all. That’s bound to be a bunch of awesome.

    I will give the Unusuals a chance despite the poor mini review from the TVA. The previews are good.

    No doubt Clay can act. He spent last year starring on Broadway as the lead actor, Sir Robin, in Spamalot. He also guested on Scrubs, ED and a couple of Soaps.

    I’m also going to try out The Unusuals –I’m trying to build up my resistance to having my favorite shows canceled (most recently, KINGS). When they finally cancel Unsusuals, I’ll already be desensitized from the eminent axing of other shows like Southland.

  • bws

    I don’t try too many new shows for that very reason. I have all of the Kings sitting on my DVR. I may watch them… I may not. But probably not until mid-May after all the finales. It’s a mad race to the finish now!
