You Asked For It
For years, viewers have complained about the lack of original, scripted programming on the networks once the summer months hit. So unless you’re content to spend the next three months getting your jollies from BIG BROTHER or THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF SASKATCHEWAN — while at the same time dooming future summer TV watchers to more of the same — you need to tune in for FOX’s one-two punch of original programming, LIE TO ME and THE GOOD GUYS.
Not only does one of our favorite VERONICA MARS alum make a triumphant return to the small screen tonight, with a killer (pun intended) guest gig on tonight’s LIE TO ME, the artist formerly known as Logan Echolls is so rockin’ in the role you’ll walk away asking how the heck Dohring isn’t headlinging a series of his own.
You liked him in ROSWELL. You loved him in The House Bunny. And despite being the son of uber-famous Tom Hanks, Colin seems to have avoided the trappings of pampered, scandal-ridden next generationers. That alone makes us wanna give his show a chance.
We’re asking nicely.
Even if LIE TO ME and THE GOOD GUYS aren’t going to go down in histroy as examples of TV’s Golden Age, it’s in the best interest of all of us to encourage original scripted programming over… what’s the phrase for which we are searching? Ah, yes, “reality crap.” So we hope you’ll consider our sincere plea that you tune in to FOX tonight. Otherwise, we just might head over to Youtube and post the entry you submitted — obviously after a night of partying — to our “OMG, I Am So The Biggest Hannah Montana Fan Ever!” contest. Bet you thought you dreamed that whole thing, didn’t you? Nope. We’ve been sitting on all the entries to that completely fake contest, waiting for just the right moment. Don’t test us!
Two words: THE BACHELORETTE.
