It’s on TV Tonight!

posted by on April 18 at 14:43 PM

• In a blatant attempt to lure the nerdlings back to the fold, starting with tonight’s episode, comic author Brian K. Vaughan (of Y: The Last Man) will be co-writing LOST (ABC 10 pm). You may now change your underpants.

• Fox is replacing tonight’s new episode of BONES (Fox, 8 pm) with a rerun, because of the plot is too reminiscent of the Virginia Tech shootings. Cue Simon Cowell to roll his eyes.

• Speaking of AMERICAN IDOL (Fox, 9 pm)… what about SANJAYA?? While Chris should get the boot for his cloying attempt at invoking sympathy from the Virginia Tech shootings, after Sanjaya’s performance last night—which was even worse than usual—TONIGHT COULD BE THE NIGHT WE FINALLY SAY BYE-BYE! (Sorry, Sanjaya, the “Aunt Jemima” will never top the “Pony-Hawk.”

Fox are pussies. The plot of tonight's episode of Bones had nothing in common wit the Virginia Tech shootings. Except for South Park there is nothing good on tonight.

Sanjaya!! LOL!

Yep, that was pretty lackluster. And probably nothing can top the PonyHawk. But I've kinda taken a liking to the guy now. And Simon heaping abuse on him week after week is probably helping more than hurting him.

I get the impression that he could sing better if he wanted to. He seems to have a decent underlying voice. To me it sounds like he is holding back, not really going for it. Which is odd, given that he certainly doesn't hold back with the hair.

i don't care who's writing lost (although y: the last man was an entertaining read), heroes still kicks its ass all over the place.

@4 - we were supposed to VOTE?

I thought we just had to make Facebook groups.

Reminds me of that Buffy episode, Earshot, that got yanked the week after Columbine. Buffy gains the ability to read minds and hears someone saying they'll kill everyone. Prompting this joke...

Oz: "Are you sure they meant it?"

Xander: "Yeah, I mean, who hasn't just idly thought about taking out the whole place with a semi-automatic? ... I said idly!"


Xander: "I'm still having trouble with the fact that one of us is just going to gun everybody down for no reason."

Cordelia: "Yeah, because THAT never happens in American high schools."

Oz: "It's bordering on trendy at this point."
