BIG* NIGHT ON THE SMALL** SCREEN!


The lineup tonight (especially 9 PM) is truly awesome (see below), and quite disturbing if your DVR is out of whack (like mine).



* There are an awful lot of shows tonight, but the question is whether it is a big night?, an awesome night? an awful night? or whether the various channels are simply competing each other to death by fragmenting the audience? True, the stations are hedging their bets (most of them) by scheduling re-showings of the films later and later and on other days, and on their other channels. And many homes now have separate screens for each member of the house, and some people even monitor more than one screen. And most people (not me, tonight) can time-shift some shows with the help of their DVR. But I still don't know if putting everything together on Sunday is such a big idea.


** The "small" screen is an increasingly inaccurate description of what is (in this context) broadband/cable TV. The "small screen" is not always small >> sometimes it is now a 54" or bigger 3D behemoth, and sometimes it's tiny (watching the show wi-fi'd to a smartphone). And "TV" is not the only thing to watch there either, since the internet is often channeled to the TV monitor.

So, here's (some of) what's on tonight:
