It’s On TV Tonight!

posted by on March 27 at 12:14 PM

Tonight there are two reasons to check out AMERICAN IDOL (FOX, 8 pm): 1) Special guest GWEN STEFANI will be onboard to teach the kids a thing or two about not being so shitty, and 2) the girl who is starving herself because Sanjaya hasn’t been voted off is STILL STARVING HERSELF!

Plus there’s the much-ballyhooed appearance of JENNIFER ANISTON on the failing FX dramedy DIRT (10 pm) starring Aniston’s old Friends co-star COURTNEY COX. (Advice to both: Jennifer, go back to the Leprechaun movies, and Courtney you may return to dancing onstage with Bruce Springsteen.)

Naturally, you should check out DANCING WITH THE STARS (ABC, 8 pm) if for no other reason that to see endless repeats of one-legged wonder HEATHER MILLS doing an extremely dangerous “backward walk-over.” (Something she perfected while endlessly nagging Paul McCartney.)
BTW, since you and everyone you know really want to see Heather’s leg fly off, here’s a computer-generated version of this eventuality as commissioned by Jimmy Kimmel.

Simon says he'll quit if Sanjaya wins? I'm going to vote for the first time. C'mon Sanjie!

Yes, please, everyone, help keep Sanjaya on. He is splendidly bad...

Dirt is failing?:(. Is it in danger of not being renewed? Too bad. After the first couple of episodes, I thought the show found its groove as a fun train wreck with it dysfunctional and crazy characters.
