Thursday night is always a bit of a debate for me. For one there’s a lot of television on that I either watch despite my better instincts or which is actually worth watching AND there are also frequently “college night” drink specials available at a wide variety of local establishments near my University BUT Friday morning is my earliest morning of the week. It’s unfair, and a moral struggle every week between being a responsible student or giving into the lure of fun, cheap alcohol, and watching the 19 year olds who just got a good enough fake to get past the bouncer try to hold their liquor. Over the course of the semester I’d say it ends up splitting 50/50 but I tend not to keep close track. Here’s the TV you can watch while I struggle with this heavy and terrible important issue:
7:30pm: “Fox Sports Special: Major League Baseball - NLCS Game #5” on Fox
8:00pm: “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS
“Community” on NBC
“The This Old House Hour” on PBS
“The Vampire Diaries” on The CW. There’s a few of you on Facebook who are absolutely NUTS about this show and it’s making me curious. Is it just the hot men or is it actually a good show?
8:30pm: “30 Rock” on NBC
“Twat My Dad Says” on CBS
9:00pm: “Clash of the Tiger Queens” on Animal Planet
“Nightmare on Elm Street: The Inside Story - Part 2” on Bio
“Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert for Autism Education” on Comedy Central. This looks like it could be kind of fun, but also like it’s going to be rerun about a billion times in the next few weeks so I don’t feel a pressing need to watch it tonight. Have to keep this space free for all the other terrible television I plan on watching.
“CSI: A New Hope” on CBS
“Destination Truth” on SyFy
“The First 48” on A&E
