I’m writing this while watching the US/Canada gold medal hockey game, as I’m sure many of you are. I don’t watch hockey, it’s almost completely uninteresting to me which is fairly unique for someone who has wasted many an afternoon these last two weeks developing passionate feelings about cross country skiing events, but there it is. However, I watched the first US/Canada hockey game and even with my hockey aversion I was like “DAMN, but that’s a good hockey game” so now I’m watching hockey again. Also, this is the last time you’ll have to hear me talking about the winter Olympics for about four years. And there was much rejoicing. Here’s your Sunday night TV:
7:00pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC
“Olympic Winter Games” on NBC. Closing ceremonies are tonight and they are prominently advertising a performance by Nickelback. NICKELBACK! Oh, and Avril Lavigne. Canada, you are FAILING SO HARD right now. I swear, you’re going to need to mail apologies to the whole world after those closing ceremonies. I will accept maple syrup in lieu of a formal apology. Although I guess the epic levels of suckage might get people to forget about that giant snafu with the Olympic flame cauldron that kicked off the games. Well played.
“‘Til Death” on Fox
7:30pm: “‘Til Death” on Fox
8:00pm: “The Amazing Race” on CBS
“Frank the Entertainer… in a Basement Affair” on VH1
“Ruby” on Style
9:00pm: “Big Love” on HBO
“Desperate Housewives” on ABC
“The Family Crews” on BET
“Masterpiece!: The 39 Steps” on PBS
“Your Kid Ate What?: Parent’s Worst Nightmare” on TLC. This sounds… not good. Like, on several different levels not good.
“Tool Academy” on VH1
“Undercover Boss Goes To Whitecastle” on CBS.
10:00pm: “Ax Men” on History
“Cold Case” on CBS
“How To Make it in America” on HBO. I hear this sucks. But I don’t have HBO so I can’t confirm.
“Brothers and Sisters” on ABC
10:30pm: “The Marriage Ref” on NBC. I swear there’s been a promo for this show every 20 minutes throughout the Olympics which basically ensures that I will never watch it. I mean, aside from the fact that it seems like a really awful idea for a show, it has also managed to get on my last nerve before a single episode even aired. “Parenthood” is also on that train.
