Welcome to Watch List, where we identify five things on TV to watch while you stay at home and recover from back surgery. Third time’s the charm for Drew! LET’S GO!
GLEE – 8:00PM (FOX) It’s the night you’ve all been waiting for, as the Gleeks spend an entire episode covering the back catalog of Britney Spears. That’s right, they’re doing all your favorites! “Oops I Did It Again”! “Baby One More Time”! “Toxic”! “Me Against The Music”! Okay, that last one probably isn’t your favorite, but they’re still gonna cover it nonetheless. They’re just that thorough. Spears herself takes some time off from poorly raising her kids to join in on the fun, along with newcomer John Stamos. Lea Michele will wear a Catholic schoolgirl uniform. This will please you. ANTICIPATION: HIT ME BABY!
NO ORDINARY FAMILY – 8:00PM (ABC) ABC’s big new drama is a superhero story about a family that develops superpowers after their plane crashes in the Amazon. Michael Chiklis is your dad, who has super strength. Julie Benz from “Dexter” is the mom, who is super fast. The son is a genius, and the daughter can read minds. They’re like “The Incredibles,” only they mixed around the powers a bit. ANTICIPATION: CHIKLIS IS KINDA FAT AGAIN!
BASEBALL, THE TENTH INNING – 8:00PM (PBS) Ken Burns’ zillion-hour documentary about the national pastime gets another installment to cover the history of the sport since 1994. You’ll learn about the ’94 strike, Ripken’s streak, the McGwire/Sosa home run chase, and lots of other stuff set to olde tymey music and featuring talking heads who care way more about baseball’s social implications than you do. ANTICIPATION: ENDLESS!
INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO – 8:00PM (Bravo – an NBC/Universal network) Betty White is your guest tonight. Why not? She’s been on every other show. May as well check this one off the list. ANTICIPATION: SMARMY!
THE GOOD WIFE – 10:00PM (CBS) It’s the season premiere of CBS’ hit legal drama. Tonight, Alicia and her very appealing straight brown hair have to choose between cheatin’ politician hubby Peter and Will, who is not a cheatin’ politician. Seems like an easy choice. ANTICIPATION: GOODY!
