TV Tues - "You've Got a Little Evil on Your Face. No,the Other Side"

Well, I'm still really behind on my TV viewing; actually have been glad for the preemptions of election coverage and the like because they've kept from falling behind even further.



(CW 8:00): Am glad the "Yeah, Lily really was a thief" thing came out, was afraid that was going to be dragged out much longer. My favorite bits of the episode had to do with the girls and their volunteer project; much more entertaining than Megan's family dramatics.


Pushing Daisies
(ABC 7:00): While not as strong as some of the other episodes this season, this one still had quite a few good parts; I'm looking forward to seeing the development of Ned's relationship with his twin half-brothers.

Private Practice (ABC 8:00): Anyone who didn't see Addison winning the write-in vote coming raise your hand; what, nobody? That's what I thought. *sigh* So predictable.


(CBS 7:00): Yes! Yesyesyesyesyes! Was so incredibly worried that the snake with the shifty accent would finagle his way to the end; way to blindside him, Sugar!

The Office (NBC 8:00): Even though I hated to see Holly go so soon -- I figured they couldn't let Michael be happy forever, but I would have liked to have seen their relationship flourish a little bit more before the plug got pulled -- I thought this was a great ep. From the killer Halloween intro featuring creepy Creed and poor Pam ("I can't even take off the hat, because then I'm Hitler), to the absurdity of Michael's inability to grasp the concept of singing the Blues, to the glory that was the Dwight/Andy feud, I was rolling the whole time.


The Big Bang Theory
(CBS 7:00):

How I Met Your Mother (CBS 7:30): While the bulk of the best parts of the episode were Barney-centric as usual, two non-Barney moments stood out: Robin's Canadian past, and Marshall's revelation that Stella hated Star Wars.

Two and a Half Men (CBS 8:00): While Jake calling Charley out on being a sick freak was a highlight, the best part of the show had to be Alan's evil grin at Judith's plight. Charley pointing out the evil on his face was good; the quicksilver shifting from evil grin to faux-concern as he was faux-comforting her was comic genius.



(CW 8:00): Tension between the twins as they start to explore their separate goals in life; oh, the drama.


WEC 36: Urijah Faber vs. Mike Brown
(Versus, 7:00): The long-awaited title fight between Faber and Brown which was postponed due to hurricane issues. Will also feature a title fight between Paulo Filho and Chael Sonnen, as well as a match with Jens Pulver; I'm interested to see which version of Jens we get this time around.

Private Practice (ABC 8:00): Fall-out from the election of Addison as head of the practice.

Ultimate Fighter (Spike 9:00)


Survivor: Gabon
(CBS 7:00): It's merger-time, when all the alliances scramble for the swing-votes.

My Name is Earl (NBC 7:00)

The Office (NBC 8:00): The promo blurb seems to promise lots of Jim/Pam and lots of Jim/Dwight, which always bodes well. Plus, Angela and Andy choosing an "unusual" wedding location.

30 Rock (NBC 8:30): Speaking of promo blurbs, after reading the one for 30 Rock I have to say that while Liz meeting Oprah and Tracy and Jenna feuding over whose life is harder both sound kind of amusing, the real draw for me came from this sentence: "Kenneth tests Jack's morality." Comedy gold, people, comedy gold!

Grey's Anatomy (ABC 8:00): For those of you who haven't heard, tonight's episode will mark the last appearance of Dr. Hahn, who was been let go from the series. Let the conspiracy theories begin!

Life on Mars (ABC 9:00)

MONDAY, Nov 10

(NBC 7:00): Chuck's ex-girlfriend pops up while Captain Awesome does mandatory CPR training at the Buy More.

Heroes (NBC 7:30): A peek into the Petrelli's past that I hope will provide some answers.

The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 7:00): Sheldon bans Penny from the apartment, and Penny vows revenge. Can't wait.

How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 7:30)

Two and a Half Men (CBS 8:00): The events of last week play out as Alan tries to escape Judith and Herb tags along with Charley
