The Sports Showdown That Should've Happened Last Night
Thanks to Daylight Savings Time, Monday here in Miami dawned bright, sunny, and an hour earlier than usual. Somehow, I’m still tired. Also, we’ve moved into the time of year when living in Miami begins to feel like an altered state of consciousness; this week the highs are all in the 80s and the lows in the 70s. It’s the first week of November. I don’t know that I’ll ever really get used to it, even though I enjoy it. Here’s your Monday night TV:
7:30 p.m.: “World Series Game #5” on FOX. Tonight could clinch the series for the Yankees. That doesn’t mean I think the game will be exciting, I’m just stating a fact.
8:00 p.m.: “Dancing With The Stars” on ABC.
“How I Met Your Mother” on CBS.
“Heroes” on NBC.
“One Tree Hill” on The CW.
8:30 p.m.: “Accidentally On Purpose” on CBS.
“Monday Night Football: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints” on ESPN.
9:00 p.m.: “Gossip Girl” on The CW.
“Dr. G : Medical Examiner” on Health. This used to be my little sister’s favorite show when she was like 10. I’d make a comment here about age-appropriate television, but I was watching “The X-Files” at that age, which is arguably gorier and more disturbing.
“Greek” on ABC Family.
“Trauma” on NBC.
“Two and a Half Men” on CBS.
“WWE RAW” on USA.
9:30 p.m.: “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS.
10:00 p.m.: “Animal Cops: Philadelphia” on Animal Planet. In case the baseball game is hideously depressing for you Philly natives, just watch about 5 minutes of this. Then even if the Phillies are losing, it’ll be like sunshine and rainbows.
“CSI: Miami” on CBS.
“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC, as it continues it’s long slow slide into oblivion.
“Castle” on ABC, which again starts two minutes after the hour even though there’s no lead in. I think ABC is programmed by contrarians.
