I feel sorry for Tuesdays sometimes. Monday earns a lot of scorn, it being the first day of the week, but at least people pay attention to it. Wednesday gets credit for marking the exact midpoint of the week, when you’re in college weekends generally start on Thursdays, and Friday is the obvious popularity winner out of all the weekdays. Hell, I could barely remember today was supposed to be Tuesday yesterday, I kept thinking it would be Wednesday. Wishful thinking, I guess. So yeah, I occasionally feel sorry for Tuesdays but then I remember that Tuesday is like that friend who, at first, seems to just have a lot of shit going on and you’re like “man, sucks for that guy” and offer sympathy. But then you realize that it actually doesn’t matter what happens to that person or whether or not their shit gets resolved, they’re always miserable. And then you stop feeling sorry for them. Here’s tonight’s television with my own plea to Tuesday to stop being such a miserable whiner.

“So You Think You Can Dance” on FOX (new time slot for this).
9:00 p.m.: “Dancing With The Stars” on ABC.
“Dirty Jobs” on Discovery. It says “Camel Rancher”. I’m not sure what to make of that.

9:30 p.m.: “18 Kids and Counting” on TLC (See?).
10:00 p.m.: “Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World” on Travel, and they’re going to be in Wisconsin tonight. What scary things can you eat in Wisconsin? Rancid cheese? Actually, don’t tell me. I probably don’t want to know.
“The Forgotten” on ABC, which is a great title as I can’t actually remember ever hearing anything about this show. At all. I haven’t the foggiest clue what it’s about.
