Mega Monday, Part I

Someone please explain to me why there are at least four decent to great shows on Monday at 7, and three solid shows on Monday at 9, but ZERO good shows on Monday at 8. (okay, Hart of Dixie in theory, but my enthusiasm for that has been steadily waning)

I finally kicked myself into gear and watched the pilot of Smash. I was and still am debating whether I really want to watch this on a weekly basis or if I just want to store it all up for an unlimited run in summer, because it seems like the kind of series that would be better mainlined. However, since DVDs from the library will just take too long and it's a pain in the butt to track anything down online more than a month after airing, I think I'm resigned to making a standing appointment with it.

Mega Monday, Part II/Trashy Side of Tuesday

Attempted to watch The River, stupidly hoping that it would be genuinely scary despite its Paranormal Activity pedigree. Nope. I have not been that mind-numbingly bored in a long time. I barely made it 25 minutes in, and that was only because it was a better alternative than New Girl. What else you got, TV?

How I Met Your Mother ("Housewarming Party") was funny and should repeat well, but would have been better if they hadn't let Barney speak. At all.

Congratulations, Ricky Martin, you get the dubious honor of "worst guest star in series history." Dude is even less attractive than I remember him being, and I never thought he was cute. One look at that perfectly disgusting ink all over his biceps, and he could not be more repulsive to me. Turns out I am pretty glad Blaine was not here to bear witness to...whatever this hellish mess was.
