It’s on TV Tonight!

posted by on April 5 at 15:03 PM

8 pm NBC THE OFFICE — As CLEARLY stated in this week’s TV column, I’m pissed at the way NBC “super-sizes” their episodes. For example, tonight’s Office is 42 minutes long, which throws off the rest of the evening, and makes me confused and worried I may have developed a brain tumor. REGARDLESS! New episode tonight in which Michael demands a raise, and we find out if Roy makes good on his cryptic words: “I’M GOING TO KILL JIM HALPERT.”

8:42 pm NBC 30 ROCK — “8:42??” Puh-LEEZE! Anyway, Arrested Development fans rejoice, because WILL “GOB” ARNETT guest-stars tonight as a network exec gunning for Jack’s (Alec Baldwin) job! (Maybe Buster and his hook will drop by as the body guard?)

10:30 pm MTV HUMAN GIANT — Comedians Aziz Ansari, Rob Huebel, and Paul Scheer team up to bring us this new sketch comedy show that… might actually be funny?!? Here’s a clip.

But but ... what about Ugly Betty?

I don't like the extended Office either. . .I don't watch it but it boots out the show I do like. . .My Name is Earl! It hasn't been on with these long epi's of Office. Pooh.

Rob Heubel and Aziz Ansari rock my socks. I can't wait!

The recent absence of Earl, save tonight, wasn't because of the Office. It was because NBC was afraid of running much new stuff against NCAA hoops.

The extended Office and 30 rock are great. Andy Richter will get his turn to have extended episodes after the show pays its dues for a while.
