I’m writing this from the school library since I left my MacBook’s power cord back in Maryland. Now, knowing that I had to do this, I felt a twinge of guilt that I’d be depriving someone who may have genuine academic needs of a computer. But then I glanced over to my right and realized that another student is watching the latest episode of “24” on a school computer, and felt less guilty. At least with a Word document open I look like I might be doing something school related, he’s got the show full screened so there’s no question that he’s deeply engaged in the exciting exploits of Jack Bauer. Either way, my cord should be back to me tomorrow, so I won’t have to do this again. Here’s Wednesday night’s TV:
8:00 p.m.: “America’s Next Top Model” on The CW.
“Mercy” on NBC. This is still around? OK then.
“Great Performances: Dance in America: NY Export: Opus Jazz” on PBS. That’s a bit of an unwieldy title which doesn’t actually tell me what the show’s about, exactly. Nice one, PBS.
“Survivor” on CBS. New episode on a special night.
8:30 p.m.: “The Middle” on ABC.
9:00 p.m.: “American Idol” on Fox. Someone’s getting voted off, y’all.
“Fly Girls” on The CW. Series Premiere. This is not about the former “In Living Color” dance troupe, but rather a reality series starring flight attendants. I think I might be more interested if it was about the original “Fly Girls.”
“Ghost Hunters” on SyFy.
“Modern Family” on ABC.
“Mythbusters” on Discovery. Eighth season premiere and Kari should be returning from maternity leave!
“Great Performances at the Met: Les Contes d’Hoffmann” on PBS. See, that’s much clearer.
9:30 p.m.: “Cougar Town” on ABC.
“High Society” on The CW.
“The Inbetweeners” on BBCA.
10:00 p.m.: “Addicted” on TLC.
“Destination Truth” on SyFy. Most of the titles of programs on SyFy sound like they were dreamed up by pretentious 15-year-olds.
“Is It Possible?” on Discovery. Series premiere. The first episode will be tackling Ironman, Batman, and Flexi-Woman.
“Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” on NBC.
“The Real World” on MTV.
“The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi” on Logo.
“Shear Genius” on Bravo.
“South Park” on Comedy Central.
“Ugly Betty” on ABC.
Intern Rusty is a Masters student at the University of Miami. She is forgoing her usual sign off because it’s saved on the MacBook which currently has a dead battery and she doesn’t care to re-write and format the whole thing just for one day.
