Hello everyone! I hope all you U.S. Pajibans had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was great, if a little on the busy side. And I saw the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in person (or at least all of it until my brother’s marching band and then got out of town before the rush) so I can now check that off my list of “Things I’d Like to Do One Day, Maybe, Not Especially.” The most entertaining part of seeing the whole thing in person was watching this one photographer guy who looked like he was training for some kind of photographer marathon the way he was sprinting up and down the street, speed walking backwards while taking pictures, and getting right up in the faces of the performers to get a shot. The man waded into the middle of the jump rope group and actually kneeled down in front of a teenager spinning a plastic jump rope at a high rate of speed to get a shot. I think he deserves hazard pay. Oh, and a guy on stilts went down about 20 feet from where we were standing, which was interesting in a horrible, car wreck sort of way. Anyway, here’s what’s available for your amusement on this fine Cyber Monday:
8:00 p.m.: “Heroes” on NBC.
“House” on FOX.
“One Tree Hill” on The CW.
8:30 p.m.: “Monday Night Football: New England Patriots at New Orleans Saints” on ESPN, and not to take away from this game, but was anyone else watching the Ravens/Steelers game last night? Which was a complete nail-biter but really shouldn’t have been? Cause I was. And I nearly had a heart attack like four times. Still, great game.
9:00 p.m.: “Find My Family” on ABC, which I’m still scared to watch.
“Gossip Girl” on The CW.
“Intervention” on A&E, season premiere.
“Trauma” on NBC. First season fall finale, if any of you out there were hugely invested in this show. No? Alright, good.
“Lie to Me” on FOX.
10:00 p.m.: “Hoarders” on A&E. Second season premiere! And I know the Misery Night ladies are going to be watching this no matter what, but I read a write up of this episode already and it’s going to be a doozy. Just trust me, those of you who are faint of heart or stomach might want to steer clear.
“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC.
“PBS Special: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live” on PBS.
