  • 31comments

What to watch on Wednesday, April 4...

I realize for most of you it's been a long, hard day of visiting salons, shopping at boutiques and insulting the help, but for us WORKIN' CLASS FOLKS, we can't wait to get home and crack open a brewski and watch some CW. Just kidding, it'll be a wine cooler. Feast your eyes on these watchable items:

SERIES FINALE, 8pm, CW
One Tree Hill
A small but very devoted group of viewers will be SOBBING tonight, as One Tree Hill draws to an end in this two-hour series finale. Tune in as the gang commemorates the 10th anniversary of Tric, plus some familiar faces may or may not swing by for a last goodbye and a horrifying plague overtakes Tree Hill. Okay maybe not that last part. R.I.P. this show!

SEASON 2 FINALE, 9:30pm, ABC
Happy Endings
Leaving so soon, Happy Endings?! In tonight's season finale, "Four Weddings and a Funeral (Minus Three Weddings and One Funeral)," the gang attends yet another wedding and Dave and Penny's friendship takes an interesting turn. Meanwhile Max may or may not reunite with his former all-male Madonna cover band.

SERIES PREMIERE, 8:30pm, NBC
Best Friends Forever
Whoops, somebody lifted a rock and ANOTHER previously unheard-of NBC comedy popped out! Like Bent, this one's also romantically comedic, but Best Friends Forever tells the tale of a spirited young woman whose divorce prompts her to move back in with a gal pal and the gal pal's boyfriend. Shenanigans, etc. Is Happy Endings back on yet??

9pm, CBS
Criminal Minds
Tonight the gang heads to Oregon to look into a series of ritualistic murders. Were you expecting something else? (Oh and co-star Matthew Gray Gubler directs this episode, in case it looks slightly dreamier than usual.)

SEASON 1 PREMIERE, 8pm, NBC
Betty White's Off Their Rockers
I guess it's supposed to be inspiring that elderly people can pull pranks just like youngsters can, but to me this is just all so depressing. Isn't the whole point of growing old so that we don't have to deal with nonsense like pranks anymore? Pranks are just ways to treat people badly and then make them feel badly for objecting. Pranks are for the birds! (Old person phrase.) Anyway, yeah. Here's a show about old person pranks, including a prank in which an old person "accidentally spills" a late spouse's ashes, and also a prank involving giving people citations for nonsensical violations. It gets better worse.
