Welcome to Watch List, where we identify five things on TV to watch while you stay at home and wave goodbye to Qaddafi. Oh Qaddafi, you tenacious little rascal you. Now all we need is for Castro to fall and all our enemies will be vanquished a solid three decades too late. LET’S GO!
THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF MIAMI – 10:00PM (Bravo – an NBC/Universal network) Can’t get enough of mildly wealthy, shallow women who don’t like each other holding staged dinner parties at the behest of Andy Cohen? Well, good news for you. Because now that we’ve gotten through the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” finale and reunion and blooper reel and bonus footage and Claymation re-enactment, there’s a whole new installment of the Housewives series waiting for us. Meet your new feudin’ nuveau riche trash, including Adriana, Marysol, Lea, Alexia, Cristy, and Larsa. That last name sounds like a brand of Finnish corn flakes, but I’m told it really is the name of a shallow rich lady with an IQ under 45. The Miami setting will no doubt add a spicy twist to the proceedings. Expect plenty of drama, and perhaps a Cuban finger sandwich or two. ANTICIPATION: ARRIBA!
GLEE – 8:00PM (FOX) It’s your special underage drinking episode of the FOX musical. Tonight’s covers include the Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me?” (truthfully, not really!), “TiK ToK” (of course), and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.” George Thorogood must be rolling in his grave. ANTICIPATION: BOOZY!
FRONTLINE – 9:00PM (PBS) Confused about the Egyptian Revolution? Not quite sure who to root for? Not quite sure where Egypt is even located? Fear not. You’re not alone. I, too, must profess a certain amount of ignorance when it comes to this conflict. After all, how often do you see revolutions happen in small South Asian countries like Egypt? What’s that? Egypt is in Africa? Africa is a continent? A continent is a giant landmass covering the planet? See, I didn’t know any of these things. Let this “Frontline” special set you straight on all matters Egyptian. ANTICIPATION: LEARNING!
DIRTY JOBS – 9:00PM (Discovery) Mike works on a fish grinder in the Bering Strait. Mmmmm… nothing tastier than ground fish. Let’s all have sardine sloppy joes! You can really taste the slurry! ANTICIPATION: FISHY!
BIZARRE FOODS – 9:00PM (Travel Channel) Zimmern eats wildebeest eyeballs in Namibia. Can I get those ground up? ANTICIPATION: EYEBALLS!
