Tonight Grey’s goes musical. Will it work? Maybe. The problem I forsee is that in singing songs that the Grey’s soundtrack made famous in the first place, they’re already worn out. I mean after the second season finale, Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars was on every playlist and rotation for years. i have a feeling I’ll love it though, mainly becuase the super sexy Kate Walsh (Addison Montgomery, star of Private Practice) is back. Elsewhere newly renewed Archer – coming off it’s funniest ep EVER – is new tonight as is The Big Bang Theory, which are among our recommendations for tonight, Thursday March 31 2011
The Big Bang Theory “The Zarnecki Incursion” 8:00 on CBS
SOmeone hacks into Sheldon’s online RPG account and decimates his character and the boys try to figure out who the culprit is. I say it’s Priya. But more likely it’s Sheldon’s nemesis Actor and geek, Wil Wheaton.
Grey’s Anatomy “Song Beneath the Song” 9:00 (to 10:01) on ABC
It’s musical time as I mentioned before, and the cast of Grey’s is gonna sing songs that were used and made famous in the series. Songs like Anna Nalick’s Breathe, Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars, The Fray’s How To Save A Life and Brandi Carslile’s The Story will be sung by the castmembers. Not all the cast sings though, from what I hear Sara Ramirez, Kevin McKidd, Chyler Leigh and Chandra Wilson. I hope Karev sings. I hope this works. The clip below begins kind of intensely…
Archer “El Secuestro” 10:00 on FX
Last week’s cancer-med scam episode was by far and large the best episode of Archer to date. It was everything that Archer has come to stand for, scatagorical hilarity mixed with wit and boundary pushing action. Tonight Pam, Isis’ office mattress gets kidnapped. Keep it up guys.
American Idol 8:00 on FOX – Man Haley killed it last night. Check out the recap posted below!
Wipeout 8:00 on ABC – It brings schadenfreude to a new level.
Perfect Couples 8:00 on NBC – This is being replaced by Paul Reiser’s show. I haven’t liked Reiser since Aliens.
Rules of Engagement 8:30 on CBS – David Putty and Dennis Finch.
CSI 9:00 on CBS – I’m waiting for Lady Heather.
Mobbed 9:00 on FOX – Howie Mandell’s flash mob as singing telegram series.
Jersey Shore 10:oo on MTV – Last week was the underwhelming finale – underwhelming becuase it focusen on Ronnie and Sam. Maybe in Italy they won’t be such jackasses, but this season they were. Tonight is the reunion.
The Mentalist 10:00 on CBS – Taking a break from the ongoing plot about Red John, Hightower and JJ LaRoche and focuses on a single mystery (and Grace’s lovelife). Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under’s Matriarch) guest stars and Frances Conroy is not one to mess with. She can go from warm to creepy in a second. She would have made a great Mags Bennett (not that I’d ever take that away from Margo Martindale)
Private Practice 10:01 on ABC – Academy Award Winner Louise Fletcher (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) guest stars as Cooper’s mother as preparations for his wedding to Charlotte ramp up. The episode is also directed by Paul Adelstein, the actor that plays Cooper.
No NBC comedies tonight… can you make it two more weeks?
