How is it already time for April? Soon, we’ll be deep into final season and the long boring Summer ahead of us. Well, enjoy it while you can, I guess.
1. TV Tonight! We have almost an entire night of new offerings.

2. Special Programming Note for Friday Afternoon! This is really aimed at my Lil TV Watcher but Handy Manny and Special Agent Oso are having a special, and first ever, cross over episode today at noon! The half hour special is called, Special Agent Oso – The Manny with the Golden Bear, and if you are a fan of either of these shows, this cartoon event is NOT to be missed!
3. TV Sunday! Go Country this Sunday!
- CBS turns over the network to Nashville, with The 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards airing from 8-11.
- Not to be outdone by Country Music’s finest, The Donald airs a three hour monstrosity of Celebrity Apprentice from 8-11.
- Fox’s Animation Domination is almost all new with only The Simpsons turning in a repeat.
- If you’re not into specials, check out ABC’s all new night of Once Upon a Time, Desperate Housewives and GCB.
- On cable, Discovery gets chilly all night with new Frozen Planet (Winter) at 8, Mythbusters (Fire vs. Ice) at 9 and Unchained Reaction at 10; Comedy Central has the special stand up, Jo Koy: Lights Out at 10; AMC has the two hour season premiere of The Killing at 8 and new Mad Men at 10; and Game of Thrones returns for its explosive season 2 at 9.
The North Remembers:
4. I always wanted James Lipton to ask me my favorite curse word.
5. I would make fun of the demo that watches this show but I watch NCIS so I should keep my mouth shut.
6. FX held its upfronts today but I am still trying to find decent info. Less Anger Management news and more about The Americans, an early front runner favorite for your pal, TV Watcher.
