Pajiba After Dark: Oh Yeah, NBC Comedy Night is Back Also

Apparently I have permission to talk about myself again, for a while I was getting comments on any intros that related to me that were basically “shut up and tell me more about TV” which, ok, but it doesn’t change week to week that much. Have you ever tried to write about exactly the same thing week after week after week? It’s a little rough, so I’m glad there are some of you out there willing to forgive if I lapse into an anecdote now and then instead of another rehashing of why television is depressing me THAT night. So! In things which are unrelated to TV but are related to me, some of you may recall that our lovely Lady of the Links posted an item about a contest to pick people to be a part of the American Gods audio book yesterday in Pajiba Love. I entered. You can see/hear my entry here and then if you really like me you can vote for me once per day. You’ll have to search for my name since there’s over 500 entries now, but I have confidence in all of you. Here’s your Thursday night TV:

8:00pm: “American Idol” on Fox

“Community” on NBC

“The Vampire Diaries” on The CW

“Wipeout: Spring Wipeout” on ABC

8:30pm: “The Paul Reiser Show” on NBC. Series premiere. I wonder if Reiser is jealous that while he’s getting a new half hour sitcom on NBC, Helen Hunt is starring in that Soul Surfer movie I totally thought was just a Lifetime move for the longest time. Probably not, I’d say they’re at equal levels of crap.

9:00pm: “Bones” on Fox

“The First 48” on A&E

“Nikita” on The CW

“The Office” on NBC. Is this the week Will Ferrell joins the cast? I haven’t watched this show in forever. Oh well.

“Police Women” on TLC

“Swamp People” on History

9:30pm: “Parks and Recreation” on NBC

10:00pm: “30 Rock” on NBC

“Archer” on FX

“I Was Held Hostage” on E

“Ice Brigade” on Food Network

“Manhunters” on A&E

“Mounted in Alaska” on History. I keep wanting to make an incredibly tasteless joke involving the tile of this show and other prominent Alaskans but every time I mention certain names I get a whole lot of crazy spewed at me. However, I’m giving you permission to make whatever tasteless jokes YOU might like to make and I will sit here and giggle at them.

“Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew” on MTV

“The Real Housewives of New York City” on Bravo

“Unleashed: K-9 Broward County” on TLC

10:30pm: “Outsourced” on NBC
