The fifth game of the NBA finals is on tonight and if you’ve been following along at all, you’ll know that the series is tied up at 2-2. The games I’ve seen so far (the first three, I missed the last one because of work and will be missing tonight’s game for the same reason) have been back and forth the whole time and incredibly exciting. Except I don’t really want exciting, because I’d just like the Heat to win. Frankly, it’s probably a little better for my sanity that I won’t be able to get any information on the game other than what the little ESPN app on my phone is able to tell me. Anyone who’s not watching basketball tonight, I hope you’re either big “So You Think You Can Dance” fans or have some nice DVDs to get through because otherwise you’re SOL. Here’s Thursday night’s TV:
8:00pm: “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” on ABC
“3 Steps to Incredible Health with Joel Fuhrman, M.D” on PBS This sounds way more like an infomercial than an actual PBS show.

8:30pm: “NBC Countdown” on ABC
9:00pm: “NBA Finals, Game 5” on ABC
“The First 48” on A&E
“Police Women” on TLC
“Swamp People” on History
9:30pm: “Stop Back Pain with Vijay Vad, M.D” on PBS. Oh! I know this one! Commercials tell me that it involves some combination of a special mattress (memory foam or one of those ones that you can adjust the inflation on), the ‘toning’ shoes that make your feet look like boats and increase your chance of tripping by 400%, a wide variety of over the counter pain killers, and also probably boner pills judging by how happy those dudes in the commercial look about them.
