That'll Do, Mr.Lewis

Woooooooo! The Ravens won! Although that game also showcased why I get so frustrated with the Ravens sometimes; that first quarter where we scored three touchdowns and a field goal was absolutely magical. If we could play like that consistently I might think we had a real shot of getting to the Superbowl. Alas, as the other three quarters of the game proved, you can’t really count on that sort of playing with the Ravens. You can, however, count on stupid celebration dances. Yeah, I said it. I don’t get any football celebration dances though. They’re all “yeah, I caught the ball!” or “yeah, I tackled that guy!” and I’m like “that’s your JOB, dingus. And you get paid ridiculously well to do it, so stop strutting like a jackass.” Anyway, I will likely be spending my evening trying to figure out whether or not my house has heat in order to combat the weird cold spell currently happening in Miami (there was only a high of 45 F today! Horrors!) but here’s what the rest of you can entertain yourselves with:

7:00pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS

“America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC

“Dateline” on NBC

8:00pm: “Celebration of Gospel” on BET, two hour special presentation. I grew up in a majority black neighborhood and one of the things I missed the most when we moved was all the Gospel on the radio on Sunday morning. I was always jealous that the music at my Catholic church didn’t sound like that. Then again, my Baptist friends had to go to church for four hours and I was usually out in a flat 60 minutes if not less, so I guess there’s an upside to everything.

“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC

“Nature: Hummingbirds” on PBS

“The Simpsons” on FOX, and it’s the 450th episode. I guess that’s important.

8:30pm: “The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special: In 3D! On Ice!” on FOX. You know, we have a cat who’s about 20 years old now. She used to be a pretty awesome cat, she could catch birds right out of the air, was haughty yet amenable to being petted and was a bad ass when it came to establishing her dominance over our dogs. Now, however, she’s skinny, cranky, pukes a lot, and has a habit of pissing in the closets. I’m sure some of you are reading a metaphor here, but really I just wanted to tell you about our cat.

9:00pm: “Ax Men” on History, 3rd season premiere.

“Battlestar Galactica: The Plan” on Syfy, who apparently figured out that BSG was the only reason many MANY people ever watched their crappy network. Well, that and the “X-Files” reruns.

“Big Love” on HBO, 4th season premiere

“Chuck” on NBC, two hour 3rd season premiere on a special night and time, just to confuse the hell out of EVERYONE.

“Cold Case” on CBS

“Desperate Housewives” on ABC

“Masterpiece!” on PBS, 40th season premiere.

“Brace for Impact: The Chesley B. Sullenberger Story” on TLC. Timely.

9:30pm: “The Cleveland Show” on FOX

10:00pm: “The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty” on A&E

“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” on E!

“Secrets of Aspen” on VH1

“Worst Cooks in America” on Food Network

“Brothers and Sisters” on ABC, officially starting at 10:01pm so ABC can continue their habit of pissing me off for no good reason.
