I missed the premiere last week, so let me remind you now: The American version of THE OFFICE is back on NBC, Tuesday nights at 9:30. I was lucky enough to catch the rerun late night on Bravo yesterday.
There are two big premieres tonight. The first is the two hour start of THE AMAZING RACE. This is the “Family Edition” series, although there’s only one or two little kids in it. It’ll be an interesting change of pace and break in the format, but I’ll be looking forward to the more traditional couples in the next season. I just hope they find some new couples of interest instead of the stock pairs they’ve had the past few seasons — “Internet dating,” “long distance dating,” “Life Partners,” “Dating But Strained,” “Father/Daughter” or “Father/Son” where the two don’t get along until they race together, etc.
The second premiere is the second season of Emmy Award-winning BOSTON LEGAL. This is the best legal drama I’ve had the pleasure to watch in — well, possibly ever. William Shatner and James Spader are hilarious. Candice Bergen was inspired casting with a great character to play.
COMMANDER IN CHIEF also premieres on ABC tonight at 9, but I don’t have any interest in it. Yes, part of that is politics, which is why I won’t be discussing it any further here.
If you missed the second episode of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL wherein the models move into their mansion, it airs again on UPN tonight at 8, opposite a new GILMORE GIRLS on the WB.
And of course, that card game whose name shall not be used for fear of invoking ten metric tonnes of spam comments returns to ESPN for more WORLD SERIES action.
Busy enough for ya?
