Tonight on the Tube: Simpsons, Housewives, Brothers & Sisters and The Dresden Files

Take a Virtual Tour of SpringfieldSo, what will you be watching tonight? Will it be The Grammy Awards? If you are a music fan at least you get a lot of musical performances between the award presentations. Usually more entertaining than most awards shows, well, except for the opening of the Oscars when Billy Crystal is hosting. An about hosts, the awards presentation tonight is going host-less in Los Angeles. This sounds like a good idea compared to most awards shows, as well. I can’t wait until awards season is over. Unfortunately, that only means the whole thing will be starting all over again, in no time. What do you think of awards shows?
