Your weekly glimpse into the mind of our Systems Administrator, Paul Jensen:
With no debates until next Wednesday, I thought I’d catch up on some light TV watching after I finish with tonight’s server reboots. Let’s see what’s on tonight:
8pm CBS: FAT GUY HOT WIFE
Premise: Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz) stars as Donny, a working-class fat guy who has an impossibly hot wife (Jessica Alba). In tonight’s hilarious episode, Donny’s wife leaves him for her Pilates instructor (Mario Lopez.) This is both the season premiere and the season finale for the series.
8pm NBC: THE JAYWALKER
Premise: Hugh Jackman stars as Drake Taylor, a habitual jaywalker who is hired by the Sacramento police department to crack unsolved minor traffic and/or parking violation cases. In this episode, Drake risks everything to find out whose Buick Skylark is parked in the Passenger Loading zone...and why.
Abe Vigoda co-stars.
8:30pm BRAVO: PROJECT MACRAME
Premise: Kate Moss hosts this new and exciting reality series devoted to finding the next top arts and crafts camp counselor. In the first challenge, competitors must make pot holders out of clay and ashtrays out of yarn, while Moss snorts coke through a piece of dried macaroni.
9pm VH1: I WILL F*** ANYTHING FOR $50. SERIOUSLY. I REALLY NEED THE CASH.
Premise: Twelve unemployed, horny hotties will have sex with anything for $50. The show’s title is pretty self-explanatory, really.
Tonight’s challenges: Eggplants and Danny Bonaduce.
9:30pm CNBC: ANEURYSM
Premise: With stock portfolios and 401Ks tanking, CNBC financial analyst Jim Cramer finally blows a blood vessel in his head.
(The show will be replaced by The Lou Dobbs Bigotry Hour.)
10pm HBO: SERVER REBOOT WEDNESDAY AFTER HOURS
Premise: A system administrator tries to balance work, fighting crime and his three mistresses (Zoey Deschanel, Amy Adams and Ziyi Zhang) who seem to be pretty cool with the fact that he’s seeing all three of them. Tonight’s episode: “Hot Tubs and Bourbon.” Parental discretion advised.
