One More Thing Before We Go: DVR Alert

Is it me or is Monday TV becoming an out-and-out pile up. Here’s what’s duking it out today:

Heroes, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, CSI: Miami, Gossip Girl, Dancing With the Stars, Daily Show, Colbert Report

And here’s how I prioritize:

1. What CH and I like and can watch together (Heroes, Big Bang Theory, CSI: Miami)
2. What CH likes — since he has more time to watch TV. (Daily Show, Colbert Report)
3. What I like (Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother)
4. My Guilty Pleasures — which I only watch online where no one else can see me (Dancing with the Stars)

So if you’re in the same boat as me, just remember that you can catch many of these shows online at their networks’ sites, before you get in a fight w/ your S.O. or roommie (DVR spots are like relationship landmines).

That all said, since Bones and House have already started, there’s only one DVR alert for Tuesday — and it’s a new kid show called The Mentalist. Yes, yes, I know that this is the basically USA Network’s Psych with a helluva lot more pedigree. But I’m intrigued with getting the high-concept of a fake psychic turned detective — without having to sit through James Roday’s never-ending schtick. So I’m giving the show a chance. Plus, it’s like the law that all black women in interracial relationships¬†have to support everything headliner Simon Baker does, because he was in Something New (you think I’m kidding, but I’m not).

Catch it on CBS, at 9pm et/pt
