Daily Picks For Thursday, January 1, 2009

STFU, n00b!

G4's got eight straight hours of Cops (G4, 7 PM) tonight, which is probably one of the greatest television guilty pleasures of all time. They exploited poor people way back when Secret Millionaire was just a glimmer in Stephen Lambert's eye. We call that trail-blazin'.

As a new convert to the cult of The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8 PM), I'd like to recommend you check out tonight's rerun of the "Barbarian Sublimation," if you've yet to give the show a chance. It involves a n00b and a Conan the Barbarian video game, so obviously it's great television.

I guess this is a rerun? I think I remember hearing about it a while back and it has 2008 in the title, but in case you missed it, the magnificent Neil Patrick Harris is hosting The 2008 World Magic Awards (MNT, 8 PM) tonight. Maybe you should DVR it and just watch the NPH wonderfulness later. Because magic is really stupid.

I'm not sure why I'm putting this on here, but I am pretty sure I'm going to watch it because I'm easily confused by current events and need to sort this mess out in my head: Scam of the Century: Bernie Madoff & The $50 Billion Heist (CNBC, 9 PM) attempts to explain that whole Bernie Madoff business, in the most sensationalistic way possible. Always the best way to learn anything, really.

Cinema's Exiles: From Hitler to Hollywood (PBS, 9:30 PM) revisits some of the most famous Jews who escaped Nazi Germany, fled to Hollywood and changed American film forever. See? The Holocaust wasn't so bad; we actually got some great movies out of it.

Aww, who doesn't love Rocky IV (AMC, 10 PM)? APOLLOOOOOO!!!
