Oh, TV, welcome back from summer vacay. How we love you. Let us count the ways…
How is it a comedy as riotously funny as 30 Rock doesn’t have droves of adoring fans? GLDers, unite! We cannot allow this gem to go the way of Arrested Development. Think Tina Fey strikes comic gold portraying that idiot Palin woman? Try thirty minutes of her navigating the goofy waters of producing a fictional goofy SNL-esque show. Come on, be a maverick and tune in.
Thursdays, 9:30/8:30c on NBC
Shut Your Pie Hole
Writer’s strike be damned! Unlike most of last year’s freshman efforts, this quirky treasure wasn’t stalled by the WGA walkout and lengthy summer break. Adorable Lee Pace charms as the lead, pie-maker Ned, whose touch stirs the dead back to life. But we’re really smitten with Kristin Chenoweth’s Olive Snook, a sprightly sweet waitress pining for the affections of Ned. Mmm, tasty. Seconds, please!
Wednesdays, 8:00/7:00c on ABC
He Wears Short Shorts
We know what you’re thinking: Survivor’s so five years ago, right? Oh contraire, mon queer. Even in its 439th season, the reality show that started it all has upped the ante. Strategy? Who cares! Bring on the boys! The season serves even more eye candy than before. We heart watching adorable Charlie crushing on sexy straight boy Marcus, who walks around in his underwear all day long. Yum. We know who we’d want in our alliance.
