Tonight’s TV Addictions: May 20, 2009

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
AMERICAN IDOL (8PM FOX, CTV in Canada)
The most dragged-out competition on television crowns another person you won’t remember a year from now (Taylor who?), but not before stretching it out for as long as they possibly can.

THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE (8PM CBS)
The fourth season concludes with me still never having seen it. Wait, does she really call Scott Bakula’s character “Papa Jeff?” Is that as creepy as it sounds? Anyway, Christine and the guy I can only assume isn’t her daddy rekindle their feelings at Richard’s wedding. But then she gets a major shock. (Despite having never seen a single episode, I’m going to guess the twist involves a pregnancy. Let me know tomorrow if I was right, okay kids?) — CT

GARY UNMARRIED (8:30PM CBS)
The title of tonight’s outing is “Gary Fixes Allison’s Garbage Disposal” but I hear that’s just a euphamism for “they have sex.”

NEW & NOTABLE:
TAKE THE LEAD (8PM CW)
Fun Fact: Co-Starring The TV Addict’s real-life brother!


BIG MOVIE PREMIERE: TERMINATOR SALVATION (8PM TVGuide Channel)
Sure, it’s just a big ol’ ad for one of Summer’s first blockbusters, but it’s the best thing those mourning the cancellation of THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES have to help ease their pain.

CRIMINAL MINDS (9PM CBS)
The team is after a serial killer in Detroit. You know, if there were as many serial killers in the real world as there are on TV, I think they’d have all run out of victims by now.

HANNITY (9PM FOX News)
The accidental funnyman gets facts wrong, avoids Keith Olbermann’s waterboarding challenge and generally flounders around as if he has a clue what he’s talking about when clearly he doesn’t. Basically, we could run this same listing for any episode of his show.

LAW & ORDER (10PM NBC)
Stolen skates play into tonight’s tale, as do dead people, a serial killer and a copycat.

MAKE ME A SUPER MODEL (10PM Bravo)
This show loves to strip it’s models down, and we love them for doing so. Tonight, they do a sizzling photoshoot on a frigid beach. Hey, nobody said being a model was easy!

  • Common Sense

    I just read (because I certainly wouldn’t waste my time *watching*) that Kris Allen beat overwhelming favorite Adam Lambert to win American Idol. Can everyone please now admit, this is not a talent contest anymore, but has become nothing more than a male beauty pageant. Obviously the right wing lobbied hard for votes, as well. Question is, would you ever buy a Kris Allen record? No, didn’t think so. Who will become the far greater star? Right again. Not Kris.

    Actually I’d/will buy Kris’ album so what does that make me? As much as I like Adam, I think he’s one note and that’s why he lost. That and the fact that the judges have been shoving him down our throat this whole season.

  • Kristen

    Ditto to what Luke said. I never once heard any of the right wing lobby for Kris. I did, however, hear all the liberals lobby for Adam CONSTANTLY!

    Gotsta say: I think Adam is a better SHOWMAN, but if I was going to buy a CD? It would totally be Kris’.

  • CT, Agreed.
