It’s on TV Tonight!

posted by on May 21 at 15:16 PM

• It’s another big season finale night starting with the much maligned 24 (Fox, 8 pm), which everyone agrees is pretty crappy compared to last year. However, in tonight’s two-hour finale, expect a showdown with Jack’s dad (James Cromwell) and the death of yet another CTU member. (Trying to get a decent life insurance rate while working at this place must be a bitch!)

• Next, it’s the breakout freshman series HEROES (NBC, 9 pm). Tonight, all the heroes gather in Kirby Plaza to stop Peter Petrelli from going nuclear and destroying NYC. (Insert obvious 9/11 metaphors here.)

• And speaking of a dark, depressing future, check out the following trailer for the new Fox series debuting this Fall called THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES (say that five times fast), in which a not-as-buff-as-Linda-Hamilton mom tries to protect sonny-boy from the Terminators of the future (with a little bit of help from a hottie teenage robot… whoo-whoo!).

Sonny-boy from The Sarah Connor Chronicles being the "he's not gay, he's just gay" best friend of the cheerleader from Heroes.

Sarah Connor being the wicked hot British lead in the lesbian romantic comedy Imagine Me & You. I'd really like to see her naked a lot more often than I do. Too bad this new show is on Fox instead of Showtime. Heh.

So, is Peter P supposed to be GW?

24 was a lot better last year. I loved the whole 'the president is a traitor' plot - I can't imagine where they got the idea for that. And Jean Smart from Designing Women was rad as the killer first lady. Good times.

This year needs more action and explosions; it's just too sedate.

Will, I think you mean Nathan (Peter's politician brother).

Sorry, I was pretty sure it was Peter that was the politico.

Yeah, 24 WAS kind of disappointing this year. Chloe is pregnant...yay. /boggle Hopefully they'll pick-it-up next year.
