It’s On TV Tonight!

posted by on April 17 at 15:59 PM

• It’s “Country Night” on American Idol (YEEEEEE-HAW! HOW EMBARRASSING!) and Sanjaya will reportedly be singing “Boot-Scootin’ Boogie.” This I gotta see.

• Remember that episode of The Shield (FX, 10 pm) when Vic mashed that drug dealer’s face against the burner on a stove? Tonight’s episode is gorier than that.

• According to USA Today, our fave teen detective Veronica Mars has already been cancelled. BOOOOOO!!!

• Want to stare into the eyes of The Office’s Jim Halpert all… day… long? Buy this painting of him for only $8.50! (I’m going to pretend we’re playing a prank on Dwight! Sighhhhhh……..)

To everyone who never bothered to watch 'Veronica Mars': I hate you so much right now. Second. Best. Show. Ever. ('Arrested Development' is the best show ever, obviously.)

We'll always have the DVDs...

Save your hate for the 5,000 people around the country who are Nielsen families.

It's pretty sad that a show watched by 5 million people is considered a failure.

Not V-Mars. Say it isn't so.

Although I do think that the crime of the episode became pretty predictable during the last season. And in the shows final episode from last season I figured out the murderer right from the beginning. It's pretty much always the one suspect that she is not concentrating on.

Cancelled??? ARRRRGH! I loved that show. Yeah, it was eventually predictable, but so's Law and Order and I have my eyes glued to that show all the time.

I love how Veronica is a beautiful blond cutie that everyone hates (not because of her hair, but because of her investigatory ways) yet everyone talks to her anyway. It's a bizarre dynamic that totally works. Plus, her dad rocks.

Is that one of those shows where you had to watch a whole season or two to get into it? Because I really wasn't feelin' it, but didn't give it much of a chance.

This is sort of a TV related question about the "enemies of slog" list.

Call me uninformed, but what did Robin Williams do to get on that list?

BTW, I have no opinion either way about Williams.

Damn, I was pretty intrigued by the Agent Veronica Mars reboot that was being pitched for season 4...
