Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives (Food Network) — Season premiere. I can’t see Guy Fieri without thinking of the one “Saturday Night Live” skit where Bobby Moynihan actually made me laugh. I think there’s some law of comedic relativity where if an SNL actor I don’t like is portraying a celebrity I dislike more than the actor, I’m allowed to think it’s funny.
Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern (Travel) — I may hate Guy Fieri, but I’d let him babysit my kids before I let Andrew Zimmern anywhere near them.
Chuck (NBC) — Drew shared this picture with me over the weekend. Say what you will about Christina Hendricks’s husband, at least he’s identifiably male.
24 (Fox) — Michael Madsen guest stars. I don’t care that I haven’t watched the last six or seven episodes — Madsen alone is worth tuning in. Few actors make bad behavior so charming. He could grope my mom and wink at me, and I’d probably just give him a high-five.
Trauma (NBC) — Season finale. Pardon me for not caring, but the only reason this show is on the air is because Leno’s departure from 10 o’clock left the Peacock scrambling for programming.
Gossip Girl (The CW) — William Baldwin guest stars as Blake Lively’s dad. Wait, are we calling Billy Baldwin “William” now? Is that a new development? *Googles* Huh, I guess not.
