American Idol gets a visit from filmmaker Quentin Tarantino as the Idols sing movies’ greatest hits. 90210 finally welcomes home Tori Spelling.
Dancing with the Stars is really heating up as Gilles stumbled a little (according to the judges, not me) and Lil’ Kim rocked the jailhouse! You can read all about it in my Dancing with the Stars recap.
Now, I have a confession to make. I’m not really a sitcom person, but I’ve fallen hard for The Big Bang Theory. Yes, I know it’s been on forever, but I tuned in to see Summer Glau a few weeks ago and now I’m hooked. Those geeks – that’s my life.
Living the life I imagine is Nathan Fillion as Castle. He was working a case of voodoo last night and lo and behold, look who showed up. It was Aldis Hodge from Leverage. I met Aldis at that Supernatural convention a few weeks back and you couldn’t ask for a sweeter, funnier person. Right now he’s back at work filming the second season of Leverage, which should debut this summer. I can’t wait. Don’t miss my interview with Nathan here.
In the meantime, I’ll have to be happy with what’s on tonight. Let’s take a look.
