What to Watch Tonight- 100th Post!


This is my 100th post since starting this blog in late July. Thank you for the support and please tell your friends about the blog.

Lots to watch tonight. This week marks the end of the summer season and the beginning of the fall season, so there will be a lot of finales and premiers this week. This is a good week to own a television.

Bachelor Pad (ABC)- Season finale. Young people compete to earn $250,000 that they do not deserve. This people already had their shot on 'The Bachelor/Bachelorette' why give them a second chance to win something?

Miss Universe Pageant (NBC)- A lot of lonely men and little girls will be watching this show tonight. I do not get why these types of pageants are still being performed. I am sure I will be reading a lot of bad pun and semi-sexist jokes tomorrow as I look for the results tomorrow.

Kate Plus 8 (TLC)- Series finale. Ding dong the witch is dead! Kate cares little about her children and I am glad she can no longer whore them out, although I am sure she will find another way. Another thought, why is this channel stilled called TLC? TLC stands for The Learning Channel. The only thing I am learning is how not to raise my kids.

Rizzoli and Isles (TNT)- Summer finale. I just can't wait 'til the fall potion of this show begins, so I can continue to not watch it.

Monday Night Football (ESPN)- Season premiere. Patriots at Dolphins and Raiders at Broncos. A lot is riding on these games for me. My fantasy team had a poor performance this week due to Kerry Collins. I hope to gain some respect points tonight.

Let me know what you are watching in the comments. I would love to know people are reading.

Winners of the Weekend Box Office Race: 9/12


Turns out the American public won't just watch any crap. 'Bucky Larson' bombed hard. Coming in at number 15, 'Bucky Larson' averaged just $967 a theater. That was leaps and bounds better than new horror release, 'Creature.' 'Creature' made $331,000 at 1,500 theaters making an average of $220 a theater. I have to imagine that it cost more to show this movie than the money the theaters brought in from tickets. Box Office Mojo had some choice words for these two films. 
To put it another way, it was the worst ever for a movie playing at 1,500 locations or more. Its per-showing attendance was less than six people, though Bucky Larson wasn't much better at a little over eight.
On to the results.
