Daily Picks For Wednesday, May 21, 2008

by Lauren Gitlin May 21, 2008 6:00 am
Cute explosion.As I mentioned before, tonight's Law & Order (NBC, 10 PM) will be, in the great Wolfian tradition, a ripped-from-the-headlines jammie. This one will revolve around a politician busted for his involvement in (gasp) a prostitution ring! But leave it to Dick to give it a kooky L&O twist. My money's on something sex-change related.

It's the moment we've all been waiting for: The American Idol (Fox, 8 PM) finale! And not a moment too soon, because if I have to hear one more stupid "Battle of the Davids" quip I am gonna seriously lose my shit.

Screw Battle of the Davids (oops, I'm dead) -- it's Battle of the Puffies on Boston Legal(ABC, 10 PM), featuring portly but faintly hot William Shatner and portly but searingly hot James Spader. May the puffiest puffy win!

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Death! Death by cute! If for some reason you did not catch Puppy Bowl IV (Animal Planet, 11 PM) when it aired to coincide with the actual Super Bowl back in February, you missed a priceless moment in television: Hours of footage of puppies playing. That's it! Just puppies playing! On a mini-football field! I am not even kidding when I tell you that my eyes were glued to the TV for at least an hour. Inexplicably mesmerizing, I tell you.

Need to re-up on your rock & roll cred? Peep the rad rock doc End Of The Century: The Story of the Ramones (Showtime, 9 PM), make yourself some punk-as-fuck flashcards and drop impressive Ramones knowledge at the next cocktail party you attend. If it doesn't get you laid, I owe you a coke.
