Thursday night TV refuses to give you your life back

Raines_lWhat? Four new shows premiere tonight and I didn’t DVR any of them. I am such a disgrace. No, really — to myself, for being an irresponsible entertainment blogger. And also to society, for actually considering my DVR negligence a problem. I mean, there are people who can’t afford TVs. And weirdos like this girl who choose not to have one. Gross! I hate her for making me feel like a loser… and because she would be absolute zero fun in my house, where the hot topics are currently the smoothness of Charles Nelson Reilly’s pipe-smoking on Match Game and how on Top Model, Renee’s “cool” new haircut has turned her from the worst girl ever to the hottest worst girl ever, and why does this make her suddenly tolerable?

Anyway, tonight! You’ve got the Conan O’Brien/Andy Richter project Andy Barker, P.I. at 9:31 p.m., and NBC can go to hell for making that the start time. Raines (starring Jeff Goldblum, pictured) begins at 10 — PARDON ME, 10:01 — on the same channel, and so does October Road on ABC. There’s also HBO’s Addiction kickoff at 9. (More info about all these, here.) Which shows, if any, are you most excited about? Which will you watch as they air, and which will you record for later? Ooh, and tomorrow morning, let’s use this post as a low-rent TV Watch for all four, and you can just complain your little hearts out in the comments, because honestly. Let’s not get our hopes up.
