Partners – Right off the bat it looks just like Will & Grace, which I liked. Glad Brandon Routh has found some steady employment. I didn’t love the show but I liked it. It was consistent and has some laughs. I like Sophia Bush’s character. I feel like she is still playing Brooke from One Tree Hill though. Michael Urie is adorable. It looks like he is playing a less bitchy version of his character on Ugly Betty. We’ll see how the next episode goes.
The Mindy Project – Liked it. Its funny and quirky (not Zooey Deschanel annoying quirky. I love New Girl but sometimes its just too much). The show wasn’t a slam dunk but it has great potential. Mindy Kaling is a great writer so I only see the show getting better. I thought the supporting characters were pretty good as well. This gets a season pass because I really like Kaling.

It’s the weekend. YAY!!!!! What are you doing tonight? How about checking out these season finales.
The Finder – FOX 8/7c – Season 1 finale This show is a goner. I don’t know anyone that watched this show. I like Michael Clark Duncan and I wanted this show to be good but it just isn’t. On tonight series finale, Walter’s dad is dying and his older brother asks him to visit. As his final wish, his father wants Walter to find their mother. Uncle Shardrick continues to force marriage on Timo and Willa.
Undercover Boss – CBS 8/7c – The CEO of MasTec, Jose Mas goes under cover at his infrastructure-construction company.
Fringe – FOX 9/8c – Yay this was renewed for a 5th and final season. The team has to figure out a way to stop a catastrophic event that would cause death and destruction. I wonder how they are gonna set it up for next season. Can’t wait its gonna be great.
CSI:NY – CBS 9/8c – Season/Series finale. Ratings for this show have been going down and this may be the possible end if CBS decides to cut this loose. On tonight’s finale, Mac is shot and has to fight for his life while the team goes after the shooter.
Blue Bloods – CBS 10/9c – This season has been just off. It’s a good show but they just drop story lines for too long and then randomly pick them up. This season ends with Frank trying to stop a biological weapon from being spread in the city all while keeping it a secret from his family. With everything that is happening, Danny and Jamie’s conflict from earlier in the season comes to a head.
Fridays are usually the nights where they send shows to die a slow painful death so there really isn’t anything to watch tonight. Next Friday are the premieres of Fringe, Blue Bloods, Supernatural and A Gifted Man so there will be plenty.
