Wednesday’s TV Picks

8pm – I want to keep endorsing the unique and interesting Pushing Daisies on ABC, but I stumbled across something that sounds so painfully god-awful that I might have to recommend as an alternative.  From a review thread on IMDb:

I just watched this new video show and must admit, I had one small chuckle. This was one about a guy who fell asleep and people kept waking him up to ask the time. None of the PICKS OF THE WEEK were even remotely funny. Whoever screens these videos should really give their sense of humor an extreme makeover. There was hardly anything funny about this whole show. I had been wondering what had happened to Arsenio Hall. He must have ran out of money and got really desperate to accept this job. The writers should have stayed on strike where they didn’t have to inflict their bad taste on the rest of the world. I had set my DVR to record these shows, but have since erased all of them. Find something better for Wednesday night like going to the dentist.

The show in disdain: The World’s Funniest Moments on MyNetwork.  And did this one-star review mention Arsenio Hall?  And this about the funniest moments in the WORLD?!  I’m tempted… very tempted.

9pmNBC‘s Life always gets very good reviews.  I tried to watch it once.  In the episode, they found a body buried in the foundation of a building.  I also think there was something to do with psychotropic drugs.  What does that mean?  To someone who has watched the show, maybe a lot.  To me – not so much so.

10pm – Ah, the bastard child of the CSI franchise, CSI: NY on CBS.  I’ve always liked Gary Sinise as an actor (even prior to Lt. Dan), and I always thought Melina Kanakaredes was a hot piece, but fans of CSI give this show the perpetual “meh” (which recently got some press itself).  Personally, I think the time is right for a CSI: Detroit.  It could open with The Who’s “Baba O’Riley.”  Oh, the New York one starts with that?  My bad.
