Its Thursday night which means something for me, because I’m a student and Thursday night is the night when we all go out because there’s a lot of drink specials and we think we’re invincible until about 8am Friday morning when the alarm goes off and it becomes immediately apparent that we’re not. It will only be worse this weekend because the Super Bowl is here this year and there’s all sorts of sponsored promotional crap happening thats supposed to be all about giving the fans a good time but is really more like “PLEASE BUY THE BIG MAC SNACK WRAP! AND WASH IT DOWN WITH A PEPSI! WHILE WATCHING VH1!” Not that I object to corporations giving me free shit in futile attempts to convince me to buy their products, which is why I have both a PSP and a Ford Fiesta tee shirt yet own neither a PSP or a car. While I attempt to convince a friend with a car to take me out to the beach to collect any and all cheap free crap available to me through the weekend, this is what’s on television:
8:00pm: “Bones” on Fox. Fifth season winter finale, so we’ve got the whole Thursday night line up together for this one week before going back into re-run and mid season replacement land.
“Carnie Wilson: Unstapled” on GSN
“Community” on NBC
“The Deep End” on ABC
“The Vampire Diaries” on The CW
8:30pm: “Parks and Recreation” on NBC
9:00pm: “CSI: Colonel’s Original” on CBS
“Fringe” on Fox. Second season winter finale.
“Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC
“The Office” on NBC. This better not be a clip show or Figgy will probably set the internet on fire.
“Supernatural” on The CW
“Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam 2010” on VH1. This appears not to be free, although since its being headlined by Justin Bieber and Rihanna, I probably would’ve given it a miss even if it was.
9:30pm: “30 Rock” on NBC
10:00pm: “Ace of Cakes” on Food Network
“Archer” on FX. I keep missing this thanks to the Thursday = go out drinking night aspect of college life and it’s super annoying to me that FX doesn’t have episodes online. Fix your shit, FX.
“Burn Notice” on USA
“Celebrity Rehab with Dr.Drew” on VH1
“Important Things with Demetri Martin” on Comedy. Second season premiere.
“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC
“The Mentalist” on CBS
“Project Runway” on Lifetime
“America’s Best Dance Crew” on MTV
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” on Bravo
“Private Practice”on ABC
