It’s Friday the 13th! Which means you can see Jared Padalecki in Friday the 13th in all his tight-jeans wearing glory on the big screen tonight at movie theaters all across the country. If you can handle a slasher film, this is the one to see. It’ll be great fun, but not for me, because I’m chicken.
I’m not too chicken to watch Jared on Supernatural, but last night was a rerun — see me pout. I also watched Knight Rider from earlier in the week. KITT’s personality is hoot. He argues with Michael, makes decisions on his own, gets huffy. I’m digging it. The plot of the show was so-so, with an interesting final act where Michael tells a boy that just because the boy’s father was a drug dealer, that doesn’t mean he didn’t love him.
Tonight, Fox goes for the big one-two punch when they premiere Joss Whedon’s new series Dollhouse along with the return of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. If you like women who kick butt, this is your night. Now let’s see what else is on.
Tonight on TV – – Friday, February 13
Fox is hoping to take the night with the return of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and then Eliza Dushku stars in the new action, sci-fi series Dollhouse.
The women also rule on ABC on Wife Swap and Supernanny and then it’s a new 20/20.
The CW has reruns of Everybody Hates Chris, The Game, and 13-Fear is Real.
NBC has one new, one rerun of Howie Do It. Then the new kid is stealing the spotlight on Friday Night Lights, and that’s followed by Dateline. Women start off strong with Ghost Whisperer on CBS then it’s a deadly romp in the woods for the Flashpoint team and it’s a case of jury tampering on Numb3rs.
Over on cable
CMT has a new set of Wedding Disasters for your enjoyment.
There’s more make-overs on TLC’s What Not to Wear.
Sci-fi and horror fans might like the line-up on SCI-FI Channel, and there’s a new Most Haunted on The Travel Channel after an extended Ghost Adventures: The Beginning.
Comedic mysteries are what’s in store if you tune in to USA tonight as they have new episodes of Monk and Psych.
News and notable
Denis Leary returns to TV April 7 with the fifth season of Rescue Me. In the meantime, you can see Denis live in the Rescue Me Comedy Tour. Visit Denis’s website for details, www.denisleary.com
Fox is in development on a series called Cop Town about a half-way house for disturbed cops. Which sort of goes with ABC’s new comedy starring Cedric the Entertainer about weekend cops. Both of which sound about as funny as the new ABC comedy called Canned which follows a group of friends who all get fired on the same day! (I feel like we’re slipping back to the ’80s.)
CBS is working on two career oriented dramas – one about a family of doctors (I get that) and one about the construction business (I don’t get that.)
Bravo is working on a new reality show set in a private girls’ school and can we talk about E!’s Hot Girls in Scary Places — USC cheerleaders spending the night in a haunted hospital. Yes, it’s a reality show, or about as real as any show with that plotline can get.
