Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today’s a day when we honor the strong Irish heritage of many Americans by engaging in behaviors generally considered socially unacceptable, and egregious use of tacky decorations. A day when everyone is Irish, if by “Irish” you mean “prone to drinking a lot while wearing ridiculous clothing prominently featuring green, shamrocks, or directions to kiss something”. Today is also a day when I get an above average numbers of inquiries into my heritage since I “look” Irish, except that I don’t really because most people assumed I was French before I started dying my hair red. However, I will be attempting to parlay my ability to sing Irish folk songs in Irish Gaelic into free drinks. Gotta play to your strengths. Here’s what’s on TV:
8:00 p.m.: “America’s Next Top Model” on The CW. Another 90 minute episode.

9:30 p.m.: “High Society” on The CW. I’ve read a couple reviews of this show that basically say that most of the participants are just downright terrible examples of human beings. I don’t know if that’s an argument to start watching or not.
“The Inbetweeners” on BBCA.
10:00 p.m.: “Addicted” on TLC. Series premiere. I’m waiting for A&E to take TLC to court for identity theft.
