I had this entire column written and between finishing it and saving it my computer froze and it all disappeared. I’d be more upset, but it wasn’t that super good in the first place, but I’m not going to reproduce the whole thing from memory because frankly that’s a waste of everyone’s time. Anyway, lesson learned, save frequently, all that good stuff. Here’s Thursday night’s TV:
8:00pm: “Big Brother” on CBS
9:00pm: “Burn Notice” on USA
“Mary Knows Best” on SyFy
“Police Women of Memphis” on TLC. I don’t understand why it has to be “Police Women” but I guess a whole sale knockoff of “COPS” is just a bit too on the nose for TLC. Because they’re so known for their original programming and all.
“Project Runway” on Lifetime. Eighth season premiere.
“Rookie Blue” on ABC
Smoking Gun Presents: World’s Dumbest Tourists 2” on TruTV
“So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox
10:00pm: “Confessions of the D.C Sniper with William Shatner: An Aftermath Special” on A&E. One hour special presentation. This sounds like something I’d watch in one of my disturbingly realistic fever dreams and then take a while to remember wasn’t real once I woke up again. The fact that it’s apparently real is starting to screw with my head a little bit. Do I need a totem? How did I get here? Are Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon Levitt going to show up soon? I’m gonna go put on something cute just in case.
“Ace of Cakes” on Food Network
“Bethenny Getting Married” on Bravo
“Boston Med” on ABC
“Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” on SyFy
“Futurama” on Comedy Central
“Jersey Shore” on MTV. Second season premiere. I saw the cast around a couple times in Miami while they were filming but generally walked the other way. Sorry I can’t give you any spoilers or direct you to a specific episode where I throw a drink in The Situation’s face.
“NICU” on Health
“Penn and Teller: Bullshit” on Showtime. This week’s topic is “old people.” Scintillating!
“Royal Pains” on USA
“Cellblock 6: Female Lock Up - Mothers and Daughters Behind Bars” on TLC. One hour special presentation. Unless Dina Lohan ends up arrested in the next couple weeks, I don’t see a huge amount of interest in this show.
10:30pm: “On the Road with Austin & Santino” on Lifetime. Series premiere.
