We’ve got a whole slew of season finales tonight so my job’s going to be getting a lot more boring really soon. I mean, I guess there’s some summer replacement stuff coming up, but is there anything you’re really excited about? There’s only a few shows I get really excited about, and one of them won’t be on again until the end of August (“The Venture Brothers”), one of them is still going for at least another couple of weeks (“Glee!”, which I’m only really excited about because next week is the Lady Gaga episode!), and the other one is currently on but I have to emotionally prepare myself for each and every episode (“Friday Night Lights”). I’m seeing a lot of Netflix in my future. Here’s what’s on tonight:
8:00 p.m.: “Bones” on Fox. Fifth season finale.
“Community” on NBC. First season finale.
“Flash Forward” on ABC.
8:30 p.m.: “Parks and Recreation” on NBC. Second season finale.
9:00 p.m.: “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” on CBS. Tenth season finale. I’m sure Laurence Fishburne is a wonderful guy, but there’s a very selfish part of me that wishes he’d play every role as either Morpheus or Cowboy Curtis. It certainly would’ve made the current version of “CSI” much more interesting.
“Fringe” on Fox. Second season finale.
“Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC. Two hour sixth season finale. I’m pretty sure shit is going to get fucked up real good, because if everybody on the damn show isn’t somehow miserable, the writers don’t seem to feel like they’re doing their job. I’d be watching my back if I were either Derek or Owen is all I’m saying.
“The Imploders” on TLC.
“The Office” on NBC. Sixth season finale.
9:30 p.m.: “30 Rock” on NBC. Fourth season finale.
10:00 p.m.: “The Dudesons in America” on MTV.
“The Marriage Ref” on NBC. First season finale.
“The Mentalist” on CBS. Second season finale.
“The Real Housewives of New York” on Bravo.
Late Night Listings:
“The Late Show With David Letterman” on CBS featuring Katherine Heigl, Steve Cohen, and Band of Horses.
“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on NBC featuring Chelsea Handler, Chris Matthews, and Sarah McLachlan. I wonder if McLachlan will be bringing on some heartbreaking animals to really up the emotional impact of her set. I swear, I’d give money to the SPCA if they set a dollar amount at which point they’d pull those commercials.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC featuring Josh Holloway, Adam Perry Lang, and Slayer.
“The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson” on CBS featuring Holly Hunter and Vampire Weekend.
“Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” on NBC featuring Will Forte, Jim Parsons, and John Delucie.
“Last Call With Carson Daly” on NBC featuring Maria Menounos, V. V. Brown, and She & Him.
