Baseball, you say? Yes indeed, we have both Texas at Detroit on FOX at 1:20/4:20 PM, then Milwaukee at St. Louis on TBS (very funny) at 5/8 PM. So, there's baseball. And there's sitcoms. An awful lot of them, in fact. I hear tonight's Community is supposed to be quite good. Are you into that? Do you like Community? I don't think I've ever heard anyone talking about it here on the site before. It's really flying under the radar of the critical community, as well. Maybe I'll check it out sometime, if it's not cancelled by the time I get around to doing so.
|It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia|
FX 10 PM: "The gang is shocked to meet Frank's long lost brother when he unexpectedly arrives at Paddy's Pub."
ABC 8 PM: "The angels try to crack a kidnapping ring in Cuba but are framed and thrown into a women's prison; Bosley works with his ex-girlfriend and CIA operative Samantha Masters (Erica Durance)." They're basically going to go through every fetish scenario on this show, aren't they? Are they all going to have to wear latex next episode?
ABC 9 PM: "The residents try to impress Jackson's mother, Catherine Avery, when she comes to Seattle Grace to perform a groundbreaking surgery; Alex and Arizona encounter a familiar face in the ER; Bailey makes a choice about her love life." Oh, wow, a character has to make a choice about her love life. At least this show can still innovate in its eighth season.
|The Big Bang Theory|
CBS 8 PM: "Wil Wheaton invites Leonard and Sheldon to a party at his house; Howard receives an opportunity." OH MAN GUYS I HOPE FELICIA DAY'S ON THIS EPISODE TOO BECAUSE MY NERD BONER ISN'T BIG ENOUGH YET
|Person of Interest|
CBS 9 PM: No episode description for this episode, but the episode's called "Cura Te Ipsum," which I believe is Latin for "only dorks know Latin."
CBS 10 PM: "Patrick Jane tries to prove a man carrying a gun at a political rally is planning to commit murder; Lisbon looks into a photographer's death." That's some precog shit right there. You gonna read his mind, Jane? Jane's a girl's name, by the way.
NBC 8 PM: "Things get strange when Troy and Abed throw a party at their new apartment."
|Parks and Recreation|
NBC 8:30 PM: "In retaliation to Ron's ``guys-only'' wilderness group, Leslie takes the women on an adventure weekend; Ben is forced into joining Donna and Tom for a day of relaxation; Chris spends time with Jerry."
NBC 9 PM: "When Andy decides to throw a garden party at Schrute Farms to impress Robert, Dwight researches how to be a good host; Andy's family makes him feel self conscious." Schrute Farms is still a thing on this show? Digging up the chestnuts, I see.
NBC 9:30 PM: "Whitney and Alex try to out-romance each other; Lily is anxious for Neal to propose to her." HEY GUYS RELATIONSHIP COMEDY ALL UP IN THIS PIECE
NBC 10 PM: "Jane suspects the wife in the mysterious death of a stockbroker; Jane uses hypnosis to help her quit smoking; Matt's ex-wife doesn't want Jane attending their son's birthday party." Jane gets it coming and going, huh? Jane's a girl's name, by the way.
|The X Factor|
Fox 8 PM: "The contestants visit the judges' homes." I think I'd risk getting kicked off this show if it meant I could disappear for a bit and get a look at Paula Abdul's medicine cabinet. Imagine the riches contained therein!
FX 10:30 PM: "Everyone is disappointed with their draft; Jenny goes back to work as a realtor; Ruxin tries to get baby Geoffrey into a Jewish pre-school." I remember when I interviewed one of the guys who's on The League. That was fun.
|How to Be a Gentleman|
CBS 8:30 PM: "When Andrew attends his ex-fiancee's wedding, he discovers she was not faithful during their relationship." WHOA SHOCKING REVELATION HEY GUYS I'M ACTUALLY GETTING TIRED OF BEING SNARKY ABOUT THESE SHOWS BUT I CAN'T STOP BECAUSE THEY ALL SOUND LIKE THEY SUCK
ABC 10 PM: "A woman without a uterus asks Jake and Addison to help her have a baby." Wait...what? What does she want them to do, make her a cyborg uterus? Oh, and why hasn't anyone named a thrash metal band Cyborg Uterus by now? I don't come up with these gems just to see them fade into the ether.
