TV Tonight: 90210, Chuck, The Event, Brew Masters


Winter Rerun Hell continues—well, not for all networks, but enough for me to unclog my Tivo. Yes, it is a weird feeling. ---

What’s new tonight:
90210 (The CW) Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) learns how to surf from a sexy beach jock. Am I interested in this because McCord will be in a wet bikini, or because there’s a higher chance than usual that she’ll drown? Yes.

Chuck (NBC) It’s Thanksgiving leftovers day at Casa Chuck and Black Friday at the Buy More. Sure, this should have been on last week—but, thanks to NBC’s interview with ex-president George W. Bush a few weeks ago, the schedule’s all effdup. Yes, it’s the first thing Dubya’s ever ruined.

The Event (NBC) Winter Finale: Tonight’s episode promises “earth-shattering consequences,” which likely means “big-ass cliffhanger that’ll be sorta-resolved when The Event returns sometime in 2011.” Oh, and Jason Ritter and Sarah Roemer will run down dark alleyways a lot and say “Look at me! Look at me! We’re going to get through this!”

Brew Masters (Discovery) New Timeslot: The Dogfish Head Brewery reality show moves from Sundays to Mondays, because Mondays are far better for beering up—at least that’s my theory/experience. Tonight, Sam and the Dogfish brew crew team with New Zealand’s Epic Brewery (not Salt Lake’s) to make a beer for an NZ beer competition. Mmm, beer ...

Also new tonight:
Skating With the Stars, CMA Country Christmas (ABC); Chase (NBC); Lie to Me (Fox); Gossip Girl (The CW); Cake Boss (TLC); Hoarders (A&E); In Treatment (HBO); Conan (TBS)

Preview: Sure, I might try out 90210 for one night …
