What’s on Tonight: The Man in Black

05.11.10 8 years ago 18 Comments

Lost (ABC) — I actually almost forgot about “Lost” — that’s how little I cared about last week’s episode. I mean, not that “Lost” has ever been beholden to Newtonian physics, but if a hole gets blown in a submerged submarine, you can’t just swim out the hole. There’s the little issue of thousands of gallons of (very heavy) water flowing in through the hole that prevent that from happening. Anyway, there are spoofs about the end of the series at Atom and Babelgum. [GIF via]

30 for 30: Straight Outta L.A. (ESPN) — Ice Cube directed this documentary about the Raiders’ 1982 move to Los Angeles and how the nascent gangsta rap culture adopted the Silver & Black as its own. More at FilmDrunk.

The Biggest Loser (NBC) — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo makes an appearance to motivate the disgusting lardbuckets. “Please, guys,” he pleads with the contestants, “you need to take better care of your body than Jessica Simpson did after I dumped her.”

NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) — It’s like “NCIS,” but Los Angeles-ier.

American Idol (Fox) — Jamie Foxx serves as the mentor the final four, not that anyone in America cares. “Naw, see, you’re tryin’ too hard. Here, listen to this –” *cranks ‘Blame it on the Alcohol’* — “See? You just let Auto-Tune do the work.”

Glee (Fox) — Ever since “Community” took a potshot at “Glee” last week, people have been pointing out a growing backlash against “Glee.” I’m okay with that.

Little Chocolatiers (TLC) — Preceded by “19 Kids and Counting,” thereby checking TLC’s required minimum of predictably exploitative shows.
