Tonight on the Tube: Drew Carey, David Spade and Danny DeVito

Look, Up in the Sky - The Amazing Story of SupermanDanny DeVito makes his return to series TV with the second season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadephia on FX. The show is a half hour comedy about a group of friends that own a bar. You may have caught an episode or two the last few week’s on Sunday nights on FOX after Family Guy. I have yet to see an episode but it is supposed to be pretty good from what I have read. Have you seen it? Is it any good? Should I check it out tonight? Let me know in the comments.

Prime Picks

My Name Is Earl (NBC): Repeat. Earl once stole a badge and when he and his brother come across it again he tries to return it.
The Office (NBC): Repeat. The hilarious “Christmas Party” episode is replayed tonight. Michael turns Secret Santa into a game of swapping for the best one. This leaves the mostly personalized gifts being pushed aside for the one gift that Michael bought for Ryan that was over the specified gift cost limit.

My Name Is Earl (NBC): Repeat. Earl tries to make up for shooting a girl with a BB as a child.
The Office (NBC): Repeat. Michael burns his foot at home and then demands sympathy for his injury from the staff at Dunder Mifflin.

Windfall (NBC): New. The rest of the lottery winners are told of Zoe’s disappearance. Cameron and Nina continue to have problems. Damien tries to show Frankie how he feels about her. Not a great show but at least it is something new.

Solid Selections

Gameshow Marathon (CBS): New. Could be fun watching Leslie Neilson and Tim Meadows play Family Feud. I wish they would have used more shows that are not still on in some form.

So You Think You Can Dance (FOX): New. Find out which two get eliminated.

Without a Trace (CBS): Repeat. A good episode that looks like a teacher who has disappeared might be having an improper relationship with a student who is also missing.

Drew Carey’s Sporting Adveture (Travel Channel): New. His travels take him to Stuttgart and Nuremburg.
