While on the one hand I’m glad that it’s Wednesday because now that “Mythbusters” is back there’s actually a purpose to Wednesdays I’m still having one of those weeks where I’m like “It’s only Wednesday? HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE!” and start contemplating the wisdom of partaking in my local bar’s Ladies Night specials which happen on Wednesdays before remembering why that’s a bad idea. (Hint: Thursday.) Then I remember that every passing day brings me closer to the day that I have to hand in my not-thesis and internship reflection so I can get my Masters degree and then I think maybe it’s not such a terrible thing that it’s only Wednesday since I still have at least 1,000 more words to write and a whole bunch of editing to do. But, see, now I’ve gone off on one of those little tangents about me that make people complain. Damn. Anyway, it’s Wednesday, there’s television on, details are below:
8:00pm: “American Idol” on Fox
“America’s Next Top Model” on The CW
“The Middle” on ABC
“Minute To Win It” on NBC
“Survivor” on CBS
8:30pm: “Better With You” on ABC
“Throwdown with Bobby Flay” on Food Network. Ninth season finale.
9:00pm: “Are We There Yet” on TBS
“Criminal Minds” CBS. I keep watching this show because two of my TV boyfriends star in it, but it’s really gotten completely fucking ridiculous. Or always was and I was too blinded by the pretty to notice. Probably the second one.
“Ghost Hunters” on SyFy
“Countdown to Zero” on History
“Inside NASCAR” on Showtime
“Modern Family” on ABC
“Mythbusters” on Discovery
“Operation Repo” on TruTV
“Shedding for the Wedding” The CW. First season finale.
9:30pm: “Are We There Yet” on TBS
“Breaking In” on Fox
“Extreme Couponing” TLC
“The Franchise” on Showtime. Series premiere.
“Gun Fight” on HBO
“Happy Endings” on ABC. Series premiere. I’m actually interested in watching this because the commercials make it seem kind of funny, but I’m certain I’m going to be horribly disappointed. As is usually the case with sitcoms. The name is already kind of terrible.
