No Wine and No TV Make Rusty Something Something
Last night while I was watching TV, the screen suddenly filled with static on all channels. I haven’t turned the TV back on since then (it was around 12:30 a.m. last night) because the arrangement by which I was getting my cable was… let’s just say questionable and I’m scared that it’s gone forever. So I will be trying to watch TV tonight, but there’s a good chance that it won’t be working and I’ll end up working on the pitch I have to give in movie production class tomorrow (It’s a medieval sex romp based on a story out of Boccaccio’s The Decameron and I’m proposing Amanda Seyfriend and Taylor Kitsch as the leads. Director is still undecided.) while glaring bitterly in my television’s direction. Here’s what the rest of you have to look forward to:
7:30 p.m.: “World Series Game #6” on FOX. Yankees are playing to win, Phillies are playing to take this series to Game #7.
8:00 p.m.: “America’s Next Top Model” on The CW.
“Hank” on ABC.
“Lock and Load: Granny’s Got a Gun” on Showtime (I’m bewildered… yet intrigued).
“Mercy” on NBC.
“The New Adventures of Old Christine” on CBS.
8:30 p.m.: “Gary Unmarried” on CBS.
“The Middle” on ABC.
9:00 p.m.: “Criminal Minds” on CBS.
“Friday Night Lights” on DirecTV.
“Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” on NBC, which my mother unfailingly refers to as “Law and Order: SUV” because she’s slightly dyslexic.
“Modern Family” on ABC.
“Mythbusters: Hurricane Windows” on Discovery, which might actually be useful for me if I can watch it.
“Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” on TBS. 4th season premiere. Just so you know.
9:30 p.m.: “Cougar Town” on ABC.
“Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” on TBS.
10:00 p.m.: “CSI: NY” on CBS.
“Eastwick” on ABC.
“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC.
“Nip/Tuck” on FX.
“Top Chef” on Bravo, but it’s “All Stars Dinner” which I think means there’s no competition happening tonight, just people from previous seasons talking about their experiences. Lame.
“Flowers Uncut with Jeff Leatham” on TLC, which is about floral arranging but I gave it a double take since the first episode is called “Virgin Alley” and my mind went to a bad place.
