I am so glad that today is election day because election coverage is some of my least favorite TV ever and most of the political commercials here make me want to throw my TV off my non-balcony and set it on fire. Obviously popular elections are a keystone of the American Government and it’s all very important blah blah civic duty blah blah whatever. Even as someone who tries to be politically educated, elections wear me out. By the time we get to them I’ve been sick of all the candidates for at least a month. So thank all of you who voted, and let’s all discuss something else. At least for tonight. Here’s your Tuesday night TV:
8:00pm: “30 For 30” on ESPN
“The Biggest Loser” on NBC
“Dancing With the Stars” on ABC. 90 minute episode at a special time.
“Nova: Trapped in an Elevator” on PBS. I have to tell you, I’m not quite claustrophobic but getting trapped in an elevator is one of those things that still gives me the willies. Especially if it’s full of other people.
“One Tree Hill” on The CW
9:00pm: “19 Kids and Counting” on TLC
“The Bad Girls Club” on Oxygen
“Dirty Jobs” on Discovery
“America’s Election Headquarters: The 2010 Midterms” on Fox
“In Treatment” on HBO
“Life Unexpected” on The CW
“Meteorite Men” on Science
“Millionaire Matchmaker” on Bravo
“Mysteries at the Museum” on Travel. Series premiere. I love museums, this might be worth a watch.
“2010 Election Night” on NBC
“Private Chefs of Beverly Hills” on Food Network
“Stargate Universe” on SyFy
9:30pm: “ABC News - Vote 2010” on ABC
“Billy the Exterminator” on A&E
“In Treatment” on HBO
10:00pm: “1000 Ways to Die” on Spike TV
“16 and Pregnant” on MTV
“Auction Kings” on Discovery. They list what’s for sale in the episode title and the first item was “Ladies muff” which made me do a double take until I realize it was “Ladies muff pistols.” It’d be a very different kind of show if it was the first.
“Being Terry Kennedy” on BET
“CBS News: Election Coverage” on CBS
“Dance Cam Slam” on VH1. Is this the more boring version of “Pants Off Dance Off”?
“I (Almost) Got Away With It” on ID
“Independent Lens: Reel Injun” on PBS
“My Life on the D-List” on Bravo
“The Little Couple” on TLC
“Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time” on Comedy Central
“Parking Wars” on A&E
“Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel” on TruTV
“Running Russell Simmons” on Oxygen. Series premiere. Didn’t realize that Mr.Simmons was an Oxygen network kinda guy. Learn something new everyday.
“Sons of Anarchy” on FX

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC featuring Thandie Newton, the latest “Dancing With the Stars” castoff, and Anberlin
“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Comedy Central featuring Michael Beschloss
