On this day in 1775, Patrick Henry delivered the “Give me liberty or give me death” speech.
2012 NCAA Basketball Tournament (CBS 7pm, 9:30pm) Xavier vs. Baylor, Indiana vs. Kentucky
I’m right in thinking that March Madness ends in March, yes?
Shark Tank (ABC 8pm) Beer-infused ice cream; pre-packaged meals for pets; safety wear for motorcycle enthusiasts; a clothing business that allows people to digitally add images to any garment; a follow-up with the creators of Ride On Carry On luggage.
I like beer. I like ice cream. I don’t think I would like them together.
Who Do You Think You Are? (NBC 8pm) Episode: Helen Hunt
I didn’t realize that they needed to pander to the insomniac audience this early on a Friday night.
Kitchen Nightmares (Fox 8pm) Chef Ramsay travels to Philadelphia to revive Chiarella’s, a family-owned Italian restaurant that has an outdated menu, a disorganized staff and sloppy service.
The Yelp reviews for this restaurant are almost all two stars… both before AND after Gordon Ramsay’s visit.
Fringe (Fox 9pm) After recent emotional events and shocking revelations, Peter considers his options; a killer targets love.
Supernatural (The CW 9pm) Episode: The Born-Again Identity
This show is not shy with the punny episode titles.
The Ultimate Fighter Live (FX 10pm)
I’m guessing people are going to fight…? Ultimately?
Merlin (SyFy 10pm) Episode: The Sword in the Stone — Can smugglers help Arthur and Merlin escape when Morgana’s army attacks Camelot?
I’m starting to think that they just throw classical Arthurian phrases around willy-nilly to keep people tuning in.
Spartacus: Vengeance (Starz 10pm) Spartacus tries to convince his people to unite against the Roman assault; Lucretia struggles to be free from the men who threaten her fate.
Fun fact: when Lucy Lawless’s kids are being too rowdy in the car, she starts doing the Xena Warrior Princess yodel, and they chill right out.
My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding (TLC 10pm) Premiere: Flamboyant wedding dresses including a pineapple and palm tree combo.
I really want to see these dresses on an episode of Drag Race.
What will you be watching tonight?
