Maybe it’s just me but have y’all noticed that it’s seemed a bit… contentious around here lately? I mean, I’m used to having the occasional barb lobbed at me, that’s what I’m here for after all, but it seems like there’s been more fights and sniping in the comments overall this week and I don’t know why. The onset of winter making you punchy? Premature holiday decorations in the stores got you twitchy? Or does everyone just need to retreat to their own corners for the weekend and take a bit of a breather? Whatever it is, I encourage all of you to do it, because while I’m pretty sure no one minds a good natured argument now and again, I’d rather we not descend into the kind of nastiness and points-scoring mentality that seems to infect other sites. Let’s all just get back to loving one another in that delightfully inappropriate way you’ve all got. Here’s your Thursday night TV:
7:30pm: “Thursday Night College Football: Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech” on ESPN
8:00pm: “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS
“Bones” on Fox
“Community” on NBC
“The This Old House Hour” on PBS
“The Vampire Diaries” on The CW. I swear I saw a kid on my campus today who looked like that Iam Somethingorother guy on this show. I don’t think he was a vampire. I doubt that would cause most of the fans of this show from tackling him on sight. I didn’t, I’m not into men who are prettier than me.
8:30pm: “30 Rock” on NBC
“Fuck My Dad Say” on CBS
9:00pm: “CSI: People Still Like Vegas, Right?”
“The Fairy Jobmother” on Lifetime. Time slot premiere. This seems a bit like that Supernanny show except for people who can’t find jobs, the commercials I’ve seen all show a stern British woman disciplining people in a frank manner.
“The First 48” on A&E
“Fringe” on Fox
“Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC
“Nikita” on The CW
“No Heroics” on DirecTV. Series premiere. Is DirecTV trying to be a thing now? Draw in people to watch something other than “Friday Night Lights”? I don’t see that going well for them.
“The Office” on NBC
“Police Women of Dallas” on TLC
“TNA: Impact” on Spike TV
9:30pm: “How Not to Live Your Life” on DirecTV. Series premiere.
“Outsourced” on NBC
10:00pm: “Ancient Aliens” on History
“The Apprentice” on NBC. Florida just sent a former “Apprentice” contestant to the state house. This is one of the many reasons why Fark has a “Florida” tag.
“Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” on SyFy
“The First 48” on A&E
“Food Feuds” on Food Network
“Ghost Lab” on Discovery
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” on FX
