Stuff To Tune In To And Zone Out On For April 16th
• More NHL Playoff Hockey! A unheard of playoff tripleheader on the rodeo channel tonight. It starts off with Columbus Blue Jackets at Detroit Red Wings (7:00 EST), next is Calgary Flames at Chicago Blackhawks (9:30 EST) and wraps up with the Battle of California as the Anaheim (Mighty) Ducky take on the San Jose Sharks (11:00 EST). You’ll have to burn the midnight oil to stay awake for this one. Just not the album with “Beds are Burning” on it, though. That song rules. [Versus, 6:00 EST]
• Boxing: Mike Tyson’s Greatest Hits, Volume II (Electric Booglaoo). I’m pretty sure this will highlights the fights in his career before he became concerened about fading into Bolivian. [ESPN2, 9:00 EST]
• Probably Funny: New episodes of The Office and 30 Rock tonight. [NBC, 9:00 EST]
• Double Feature Movie Night! Talk about an odd combo – Blazing Saddles and then The Untouchables. Be sure to eat all of your schnitzengruben or you might get a baseball bat to the cranium. [AMC, 8:00 EST]
That does it for me, folks. Have a good evening. Tomorrow’s Friday, so that’s good. Unless weekends frighten you – to tell you the truth, when I was a kid, I saw the video for “Working for the Weekend” by Loverboy and for a while there I dreaded Fridays – and headbands.
