Happy New Year, everyone! I hope 2010’s being good to you so far. At the moment I’m watching the Ravens attempting to make it into the playoffs and eating some sushi, so I have to say that it’s going well for me. I hope everyone enjoyed Sarina’s version of Pajiba After Dark, as she was generous enough to take over for me while I did silly things like enjoyed time with friend and family and took ridiculously long and unnecessary naps. And I do have to say that she offered a refreshing take on television, mostly unfettered by pesky reality, and probably heavier on the “iCarly” than anything I’ve ever written, but it’s the differences between us that make this place so great! Here’s what you can enjoy on television tonight:
7:00pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC. For Christmas, I actually got my brother called “Bacon Salt” which is, bizarrely, both kosher, low sodium, and brought to you by the geniuses behind “Baconnaise”. I read a bit about the company which was partially funded by winnings from “America’s Funniest Home Videos”. Just thought y’all would like to know.
“Football Night in America” on NBC, and the “finale”, since we’re into the playoffs after today.
8:00pm: “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC
“Iron Chef America: Super Chef Battle” on Food Network
“The Simpsons” on FOX
8:15pm: “Sunday Night Football: Cincinnati Bengals at NY Jets” on NBC
8:30pm: “The Cleveland Show” on FOX, so all of you can look forward to Barbado rambling about his deep and abiding love for Seth McFarlane some more. Again.
9:00pm: “Desperate Housewives” on ABC
“Family Guy” on FOX
“My Shocking Story: My Giant Head” on TLC. I’m picturing a live action bobblehead here, which I’m sure is incredibly insensitive but I’m blaming TLC for having such an evocative title.
9:30pm: “American Dad” on FOX
10:00pm: “The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty” on A&E
“Keeping Up With The Kardashians” on E!. Discussion question: is it more distasteful to ride the coattails of your dead brother to renewed fame, or to use the fact that your sister/daughter was the star of a legendarily terrible sex tape involving water games to make your family famous?
“TLC Special: Super Face Surgeries” on TLC. I wonder if the person in that other special can get their Bratz-esque head fixed on this show.
“Brothers and Sisters” on ABC
