What to Watch Tonight: Touch, One Tree Hill, and Whitney

What to watch on Wednesday, January 25...

Quick question, completely unrelated to the listings below: Reading any good books? Just wondering!

SERIES PREMIERE, 9pm, Fox
Touch
If you enjoyed Heroes but wished it had fewer heroes and was more sentimental, then you may enjoy this newest series from Heroes creator Tim Kring. Kiefer Sutherland stars as a blue-collar widower whose mute son is some kind of autistic genius with numbers and can predict the future. That method is a step up from an artist dude who predicts the future via paintings, I guess.

8pm, CBS
One Tree Hill
The citizens of Tree Hill (LOL forever @ that name) continue navigating their rich emotional lives as Haley gets unexpected assistance from Dan at the café and Quinn discovers that Clay's been keeping secrets. Meanwhile Chase nurtures a busted heart and Brooke's father does something very disappointing.

8pm, NBC
Whitney
Tonight Roxanne hires Whitney to assist her at the office but more importantly to spy on a co-worker. Elsewhere, Alex attempts to get organized and Mark consults with Neal and Lily about sprucing up his love life. (The live studio audience will most likely be watching old episodes of Seinfeld on their phones.)

SEASON 22 PREMIERE, 10pm, MTV
The Challenge: Battle of the Exes
Let's stop pretending we don't watch this show, because we definitely watch this show. It's been around for 22 seasons for a reason! In tonight's season opener, we'll meet the 26 players who arrive in the Dominican Republic only to find themselves paired off with their respective showmance exes. Plus the normal amount of boozin' and bruisin', probably.

10pm, TV Land
Hot in Cleveland
Things are about to get slightly more incestuous, because Victoria's daughter is about to announce she's engaged to Melanie's son. Also, Joy's blind boyfriend believes she's 26 (sure) and Elka begins prank-calling a member of the New York Yankees.

Dragon's Den (Camada), Daily Show...reading "Confessions of an Economic Hitman". Everyone should read it, but especially Americans...All Americans should read it and refer to the sourced material.

I'm re-reading the Sookie Stackhouse novels (so great, team Alcide!). Oh, and e-readers may be handy but nothing beats the smell of a new book and the feel of the pages in your hands. It's my most favourite thing in the world, I really <3 books :)



Touch, The Soup, Are You There Chelsea?

Where's Revenge?

What a snoozefest... Guess that won't be any tv for me tonight (or to be more accurate in my case: tomorrow) after all...

my book will be: 'ADD-friendly ways to organize your life'

No that's not a joke. Nor is it ironic.

Paint dry. Naw, I'm just kidding, but seriously, why are you recommending Whitney for when it's just awful and you have Royal Pains, CSI, Criminal Minds, and The Exes all far more watchable?

OTH, Touch.

Royal Pains, because it is just a decent show. And I will be watching Touch. I have high hopes for it. But considering The Finder and Alcatraz I am not holding my breath.

Probably The Soup. I'll give Touch a try. Wednesdays really suck without ABC.

I guess I have to watch Touch, I guess it might be OK, and I kinda feel I owe it to Kiefer after he was so awesome in Melancholia (everyone's should see that!!)

I will watch The Soup... and Conan, but the rest makes me glad I got my Kindle for Christmas. Monster by Frank Peretti will be read.

I also got a Kindle for Christmas! Do you find it as awesome as I do? I paid $6 for the 5th Game of Thrones book that would have cost me at least $20 if I had to buy it in a book store.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE (sorry for the caps, but I LOVE) my Kindle! I think I have about 85 books of which I have paid for 10 or so. So many books are so inexpensive! I love their free lists. I have found quite a few authors I like there. Honestly, the selection of free books is the best, all books cost something usually in a bookstore! I only paid $7 for Monster, and it was $13 in a bookstore, plus of course, gas and my time...

Couldn't agree more! Watch out book stores, you're about to become obsolete!

David is correct above. When ABC does reruns on Wed. It leaves the evening lacking. I mean really what are we supposed to watch Whitney and Chelsea. I will finish off a couple of books undisrupted. I have a kindle as well, but on the Ipad2. I try to get through a book or two a week. Hurray for readers!

Since there's nothing else of interest to me on Wednesdays I'll probably check out Touch. But it doesn't sound like a show that would interest me.

Nature, Whitney, Chelsea?, Touch, The Soup, Royal Pains, Hot In Cleveland, The Exes (episode title: "When Holly Broke Kevin" wait what?), and Elizabeth Banks on Conan



it's really weird when you think of the actors playing Melanie's son (Joe Jonas) and Victoria's daughter (Jennifer Love Hewitt) being engaged..
