Tonight’s TV Addicions: April 14, 2009

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
AMERICAN IDOL (8PM FOX, CTV in Canada)
Tonight’s big IDOL mystery has to do not so much with why director Quentin Tarantino is mentoring a bunch of singers. But rather, if AMERICAN IDOL will be able to ‘cram’ all 7 finalists along with the obligatory judges critiques into a mere sixty minutes! Stay tuned…

FRINGE (9PM FOX, CTV in Canada)
Animal rights activists continue to take a prime-time beating (see: DOLLHOUSE and NUMB3RS) when a rescue mission at a laboratory backfires releasing a vicious beast on an unsuspecting public.

90210 (9PM CW, GlobalTV in Canada)
Not only did Donna Martin graduate, it turns out she may have put those smarts to good use. How else to explain Tori Spelling returning to 90210 on the same exact day her new book Mommywood hits the shelves. Daddy would be proud. Candy, well… not so much.


NEW & NOTABLE:
ACCORDING TO JIM (8PM ABC)
Just when you thought it was safe to return to ABC at 8PM on Tuesday night… along comes ACCORDING TO JIM with back-to-back episodes.

CUPID (10PM ABC)
It’s not quite the My Girl reunion fans, we’ve been clamoring for. But it’s still a pretty big coincidence that Anna Chlumsky guest stars on tonight’s CUPID mere days before My Girl co-star Macaulay Culkin drops by KINGS. Agreed?
