We lost a television legend today, and there’s really no entertaining spin on that. Everything that needs to be said has already been said far more eloquently than I could ever manage. I will say that it seems a little unfair that the generation prior to mine had “The Golden Girls” in their formative years, whereas my generation had “Sex in the City.” Here’s Thursday night’s TV:
8:00pm: “ABC Sports Special: Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” on ABC. Special presentation.
“So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox. New two hour episode. I was talking about this with a friend last night; I really like it in that there’s a lot of real talent on display, but hate that about 70% of the show is people talking, rehearsal footage, interviews, and other things that aren’t people dancing. I might just DVR it so I can fast-forward through all the useless crap. Fun TV fact: “Glee“‘s Brittany was on some previous season of “So You Think You Can Dance.”
8:30pm: “100 Questions” on NBC
“ABC Sports Special: NBA Coundown” on ABC. Special presentation.
9:00pm: “Burn Notice” on USA. Fourth season premiere.
“The First 48” on A&E
“Police Women of Memphis” on TLC
“Creating Synthetic Life: Your Questions Answered” on Science. One hour special presentation. Is that you, Skynet?
“ABC Sports Speical: NBA Finals, Game 1” on ABC. Special presentation.
10:00pm: “Mall Cops: Mall of America” on TLC. This episode is called “Palin Power.” I just don’t want to know.

“The OCD Project” on VH1
“The Real Housewives of New York City” on Bravo. Third season finale.
