It’s been a rough weekend for me, because as I’ve mentioned elsewhere the internet and cable at my house has been out. I’ve got a strong suspicion as to what happened and where the problem actually is, but no expertise to fix it. And since my name isn’t actually on the account, I have to wait for my roommate to get back to call for a technician to come out and get us hooked back in. Words cannot describe how ready I am for this to happen, as biking a mile to campus and back to use the internet is not fun. Here’s what the rest of you get to watch tonight:
7:00 p.m.: “60 Minutes” on CBS.
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC.
“Football Night in America” on NBC (does anyone watch this? If I’m going to watch the game I usually just tune in for … the game. I don’t bother with the hour-long lead-up to the game).
8:00 p.m.: “The Amazing Race” on CBS.
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC. I notice that there’s no regular “Extreme Makeover” on anymore, just like there’s no “The Swan” on anymore. I guess someone figured out that giving women drastic plastic surgery so they could conform to a socially accepted notion of “beauty” might be deemed offensive. Perhaps there is hope for this country.
“The Prisoner” on AMC, first night of this mini series. I’m interested in it, but have no TV so I’ll just hope it ends up on Hulu.
“The Simpsons” on FOX.
8:15 p.m.: “Sunday Night Football: New England Patriots at Indianapolis Colts” on NBC.
8:30 p.m.: “The Cleveland Show” on FOX.
9:00 p.m.: “Curb Your Enthusiasm” on HBO.
“Desperate Housewives” on ABC.
“Dexter” on Showtime.
“Family Guy” on FOX.
“The Prisoner” on AMC.
“Three Rivers” on CBS.
“WWII in HD” on History.
9:30 p.m.: “American Dad” on FOX.
10:00 p.m.: “Californication” on Showtime.
“Cold Case” on CBS.
“Brothers and Sisters” on ABC.
Intern Rusty is a Masters student at the University of Miami. You can learn more about her at Rusty’s Ventures. For those interested, her leg is feeling a lot better and she’s tapering off the Percocet because of the queasiness it causes and because it kills her appetite. She appreciates all of your help though.
