Leno Begins His Assault on Primetime
Unless you’re a football fan, after a good night of finales, tonight’s television highlights are going to be a letdown. Let’s get right to them:
— Buffalo Bills vs. The New England Patriots, in the first of two Monday night games on ESPN. My prediction: Patriots 35, Bills 21. And I think It’s going to be close until the fourth quarter. The Bills are hungry; Brady is rusty; and Moss is old.
— “America’s Got Talent,” on NBC remains the most popular television show nobody watches.
— “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” over on Bravo illustrates just how hard up James Lipton is for decent guests: Tonight’s episode features the cast of “The Family Guy.” Wow.
— “Lincoln Heights,” the fourth season premiere on ABC Family (never heard of the show)
— “One Tree Hill,” debuts its 7th season on The CW
— “Gossip Girl,” debuts its 3rd season on The CW. Never seen a minute of it. Does Kristen Bell still narrate?
— “Greek,” on ABC Family
— “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” on TLC.
— “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations,” has its season finale on the Travel Channel.
— “The Jay Leno Show,” premieres on NBC, with Jerry Seinfeld. Prediction: Cancelled by January.
— “Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers.” Chargers in a blowout. 31-7. The game, essentially, will be over by the end of the first quarter, and it’ll still be more interesting than Leno’s show.
