Obviously the big news today is that there was a football game played yesterday and this one team won it and the other team lost. And that all the performers seemed to be on a mission to out-do each other in the field of embarrassing moments in front of the nation. It just got worse as the night went on, to the point where it was almost funny if it hadn’t been so painful. In my opinion, the whole mess probably wasn’t worth the hangover some of y’all are sporting today, although I wasn’t around for the live chat so maybe that part was. But that’s all in the past and right now we’re looking to the future. Specifically, to the immediate future involving what’s on television tonight. Here’s your Monday night TV:
7:00pm: “Inside the Actor’s Studio” on Bravo. Guest this week is the always appreciated Colin Firth probably talking about that movie of his that’s been winning lots of awards recently. Man could talk about grass growing and I’m betting there’s still a significant percentage of you that would tune in.
8:00pm: “90210” on The CW
“Antiques Roadshow” on PBS
“The Bachelor” on ABC
“Chuck” on NBC
“Enough Already with Peter Walsh” on OWN
“House” on Fox
“How I Met Your Mother” on CBS
“Pretty Little Liars” on ABC Family
“The Unpoppables” on TLC. Series premiere. The TLC description of this “‘The Unpoppables’ follows the quirky daredevils of New Balloon Art as they wow clients with the most innovative balloon sculptures ever.” I think there’s a copywriter out there who needs to be shot for using the words “quirky,” “daredevils,” and “innovative” when discussing freaking balloons.

“Greek” on ABC Family
“Reagan” on HBO
“Intervention” on A&E
“Top Gear” on BBCA. 16th season premiere.
“Two and a Half Men” on CBS. Honestly, at this point I’m more curious about what it would take to get Charlie Sheen taken off this show than why he hasn’t been removed already.

9:30pm: “Mike and Molly” on CBS
