Last night we learned that a healthy chunk of the Pajiba After Dark community were students of some kind or another who were busily putting off studying, writing, or other school related work. The good news for all of us students busy procrastinating is that there’s not a lot to distract you on TV tonight, new show-wise. The bad news, as I’m already well aware, is that there’s still re-runs and the internet out there to distract you, which is really my biggest problem. Even if I take myself over to campus to get away from the TV, I still end up browsing my facebook every ten minutes or so, like anything important ever actually happens on facebook. Also, I’m sure your room could use some straightening up. Do you have any laundry to do? Say, wouldn’t a snack be great right now? I’m a terribly evil person sometimes, and here’s your Tuesday night offerings:
8:00 p.m.: “90210” on The CW.
“The Biggest Loser” on NBC, 8th Season Finale.
“So You Think You Can Dance” on FOX.
8:30 p.m.: “Lanny and Wayne the Christmas Elves in Prep and Landing” on ABC. And things like this, ladies and gentlemen, are why I’m not a big fan of Christmas. Inevitably, this program will be peppered with commercials for expensive yet shoddily made toys that children will demand for Christmas, only to make themselves heartbroken and their parents feel hideously guilty when they don’t get them for Christmas. Never mind that I can’t imagine it’s going to be anything other than an uncreative retread of some tired Christmas theme involving the “saving” of Christmas by someone other than Santa. Yes, Christmas makes me curmudgeonly. Deal with it.
9:00 p.m.: “18 Kids and Counting” on TLC. Michelle Duggar was reportedly rushed to the hospital last night after experiencing complications with her current pregnancy, which is lucky number 19. How this woman has not experienced uterine prolapse (warning: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT GOOGLE IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT IS) I can’t begin to imagine.
“Dirty Jobs” on Discovery.
“I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” on Health.
“Melrose Place” on The CW.
“Scrubs” on ABC.
9:30 p.m.: “Better Off Ted” on ABC, 2nd Season Premiere.
10:00 p.m.: “The Bad Girls Club” on Oxygen.
“Independent Lens: Between the Folds” on PBS.
“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC.
“The Secret Lives of Women: Cat Ladies” on WE.
“Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” on Bravo. Another Miami salon I’m not familiar with. Given how many have popped up on this show I’m beginning to be glad I wait to get my hair cut until I’m back in Maryland.
