Sunday has been one of those days that I find confusing to refer to, because I consider it the end of the week but calendars and some very wrong people consider it the beginning of a new week. It’s certainly not the kind of difference of opinion to fight wars over or anything, but just a sort of mental perception. Are you spending your whole week looking forward to “The Killing” and other Sunday shows, or do you start your week off with them and then spend the rest of the week waiting for a new episode? Then again, since I’m currently unemployed and job hunting it’s really just another day in a series of days that I get to wear pajama pants and spend most of my day on the couch in front of my computer. Actually, that sounds less like I’m unemployed and more like I’m a successful blogger. By the way, thank you to all of you wished me congratulations last Thursday on my graduation. And no, I don’t plant the trolls who only show up when I talk about myself. They’re apparently kind enough to read my column every day to know when their unique and thoughtful contributions are needed to spur intelligent discourse on who is stupider. Here’s your Sunday night TV:
7:00pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS

8:00pm: “Bert the Conquerer” on Travel
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC. Eighth season finale.
“The Family Crews” on BET. Second season finale.
“Food Network Challenge: Wrestling Cakes (WWE)” on Food Network. I don’t know any of the WWE guys aside from the Rock and that dude in the jean shorts who looks like Matt Damon on a truckload of steroids so I’m even more bewildered by this show than usual. Are the cakes going to look like wrestlers? Are they going to be perched on ladders so they can fall off onto other, lesser cakes? Have all the bakers agreed who’s going to win beforehand, but will spend the entire hour “confronting” each other “unexpectedly” while still being suspiciously mic’ed with cameras in the room to up the tension? I’d watch to find out, but I think that would leave me with far more questions than answers.
“Jerseylicious” on Style. Third season premiere.
“Minute to Win It” on NBC

“Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes” on OWN

“Survivor” on CBS. Two hour 22nd season finale.
“NBA Playoffs: Miami at Chicago, Game 1” on TNT. I’m not going to say much about this because my friends are fiercely divided on this game and I’d rather not lose any of them over what is actually not really something I’m super invested in.
