So… unlike the Hulk, y’all apparently like me when I’m angry. I’d like to thank everyone for the overwhelmingly positive response to my little rant and offer my apologies to Canadians; I’ve been to your country many times and everyone I’ve met has been unfailingly lovely and the maple syrup really is that good. It did feel good to get some of those frustrations off my chest, but now everything is back to normal, where I just insult bad television. At least for the time being. Here’s Wednesday night’s TV:
8:00pm: “Big Brother” on CBS
“Minute to Win It” on NBC
“PBS Special: Tavis Smiley Reports: New Orleans: Been in the Storm Too Long” on PBS. Some of the PBS shows I want to start typing in the style of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters” just to highlight how unnecessary and ridiculous these title constructions are.
“So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox. 150th episode.
“TLC Special: Super Pooches” on TLC. But are they little pooches with 15 babies who bake cakes? No? How’d this get on the schedule?
9:00pm: “America’s Got Talent” on NBC
“Come Dine With Me: Plymouth” on BBCA
“Confessions: Animal Hoarding” on Animal Planet. Series premiere. OK, seriously? The hoarding shows are bad enough on their own and you’re going to add neglected animals to the mix? Is this being sponsored by someone who makes SSRIs because the only response I can think of to something like this is crippling depression.
“Dad Camp” on VH1
“Ghost Hunters International” on SyFy
“I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” on TLC. Third season premiere.
