Matt's Guide to Wednesday TV: Football, Dancing, Damages and Bogie-Bacall Magic

Rose Byrne and Ryan Phillippe

When the ratings for tonight's TV are tabulated on Thursday, there's little doubt what will top the charts — and it won't be the doings in Charlotte on the second night of the Democratic National Convention. (It won't be Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, either, for which civilization can breathe a sigh of relief.)

One of TV's biggest draws returns with the official NFL Kickoff 2012 on NBC (coverage starts at 7:30/6:30c), with the opening game of the season a rematch of the Giants and Cowboys. read more

Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz

"Sort of like an eclipse — it doesn't happen that often." That's Angela's wry take on the remarkable sight of "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) crying copiously at a grisly crime scene, as Fox's Bones (9/8c) finally begins its seventh season, re-establishing ...

"Lay Your Hands on Me"

After a long absence Greys Anatomy returned tonight with what could be the last glimpse we have at Seattle Grace for a whileand they did not disappoint In a change from the norm Bailey talked us through tonights episode and from the moment she stated God created man and its been downhill ever since we knew that it was going to be a night unlike any otherDerek and Mark started things off by taking what looked like a light-hearted nature walk through the woods Their travels ended up on a picturesque hilltop where Derek exclaimed he was going to build his dream house He wasnt kidding With the architectural plans already mapped out Derek blindsided Meredith with the news and her reaction was less than enthusiastic Perhaps she was as shocked as I was to learn that McDreamy had put any thought into ever moving out of his shiny trailer Or perhaps she was too preoccupied with her culinary creation for Lexie to properly process the news Either way I was disap read more

January 18, 2007: Six Days, Part 2

How many of you were a complete mess while watching this episode, like I was? Out. Of. Control. Hey — it's not a shocker when Grey's Anatomy makes you cry — I'm used to getting teary-eyed at least once per episode. But multiple times throughout the hour — that only happens once or twice per season for me. Wow. Can someone please give T.R. Knight an Emmy, Golden Globe or SAG nomination? To the best of my knowledge, he has never been individually nominated for any TV acting award, and after tonight, he's due. He had so many award-worthy scenes, starting with the moment when George figured out that Webber and Bailey had abided by Mr. O'Malley's wishes and given him the surgery, even after seeing that his cancer had spread. "He didn't know any better! You knew better!" Then, I lost it again when George spoke to his on-life-support father and admitted to lying to him as a child, apologized and asked him to "fight a little harder — that'd be good" and then kissed him. ... read more

January 11, 2007: Six Days, Part 1

The title of tonight's episode was "Six Days." But it's been a long six weeks since we've had the privilege of a new episode. I've missed my Grey Thursdays. Do you agree with me that it was worth the wait? First things first — it's about frickin' time Izzie deposited that check! I loved George saying to her, after the check fell off the fridge yet again: "I just dropped 8.7 million dollars on the floor. You need to deposit that check!" I imagined hearing millions of homes screaming: "Yes!" So it was quite appropriate for Izzie to be so hysterical at the bank toward the end, loudly crying: "I'm supposed to do something good! Can you just deposit it already?" Since this was part one of a two-parter, I think it's pretty obvious that Izzie will use some of the money to pay for patient Heather's expensive spine-straightening surgery next week, especially since Heather's insurance won't cover it. ABC likes to give the fabulous Mae Whitman from Arrested Development work — first D... read more

November 23, 2006: From a Whisper to a Scream

Hours after the effects of the tryptophan from the fabulous Thanksgiving dinner I had with friends wore off, I gave thanks for a new episode of Grey's. This episode was anything but a turkey. How many of you were screaming "yes!" to the TV as soon as you heard Sandra Oh's voice in the opening narration rather than Ellen Pompeo's? Not that I dislike Meredith Grey being the show's narrator — it is called Grey’s Anatomy. But it's a nice diversion when someone else takes over for a change. Last time this happened, it was T.R. Knight's narrative voice and I remember how most of you were thrilled and only a few of you insisted on having it be Meredith's voice. It made such good sense for Cristina to narrate at the opening and closing of the show since it was a heavily Cristina-centric episode. In fact, the entire super-sized hour and 10 minutes made such good sense, I kept thinking how satisfied I was. In fact, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'd like to send a thank you note to ... read more

November 12, 2006: Children and Art

Well, you knew that after last week's standout shoot-out episode, tonight was going to be somewhat of a letdown no matter what. How can you top last week? Since my expectations were already lowered, I was able to enjoy tonight for the most part — especially the Bree and Orson scenes. Continuing in the tradition of casting the very best actresses in the business to play the mothers of the characters, Dixie Carter acted up a storm as Gloria, Orson's mother of a mother. As soon as Bree started talking to Gloria as though she were senile, you knew there was going to be hell. I like that we still don't know exactly why Orson wants to keep his mother in the nursing home, yet Gloria has something over Orson — something that could get him in big trouble: "I gave you life. You know I won't hesitate to take it away." Maybe we'll find out next week.It was great to see how frustrated Orson was getting around Gloria, which just frightened Bree and humored Andrew: "So — can we call... read more
