Misery night is here, with the addition of the made for TV movie about the murder of Meredith Kercher featuring that girl who used to be in “Heroes” and yes I do know her name but I don’t know how to spell it so I’ll just keep referring to her as “The Cheerleader” thank you very much. (As a side note, as an American doing a study abroad shortly after the investigation began, this is also where I learned that people can decide whether or not you’re a murderer by the contents of your MySpace page. Once they can figure that out through Facebook and Twitter I’m really in trouble. Uh, I mean, nothing to see here.) Really, just a banner night of “feel terrible about the world” television unless you’re lucky enough to get Logo so you can watch “RuPaul’s Drag Race” which probably makes you feel better about the world. Or at least better about the levels of sequins in the world, which is all it really takes for some of us (like me). Here’s your Monday night TV:
8:00pm: “90210” on The CW
“Antiques Roadshow” on PBS

“Bait Car” on TruTV. I TOTALLY REMEMBERED THAT BOOK. It was Brasyl, and probably none of you know what I’m referring to but I felt it necessary to share that information anyway. Moving on now.

9:00pm: “Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial in Italy” on Lifetime. Original Telefilm. I suppose we should give Lifetime a soupçon of credit since they didn’t incorporate the “Foxy Knoxy” nickname the tabloids bandied about into the title. Seems a little soon though, right?
