What's Hot On TV Tonight – National Spelling Bee


Good spelling runs in the family here. I did well at a district spelling bee (not that you’d know it from my horrendous typos), and my son was in two district spelling bees, the second time coming pretty close to the end. HIs first was when he was in just 3rd grade. Although, spellcheck on computers seems to have made me forget how to spell on my own. Or is that just old age?

1. Regis and Kelly. Jeff Daniels is on the show, and I don’t care what roles he does; I will always think of him as Flap. Also on is Danny Gokey. Syndicated, check local listings.

2. George of the Jungle. I like this live action version with Brendan Fraser even butter than the cartoon. Will we be able to say the same thing for Land of the Lost, that it’s better than the cheesy version we watched in the 70s? 12:00 PM CT TBS

3. Back to the Future Part II. It’s the better of the two sequels depending on your preference, futuristic or Old West. I like the futuristic and how they depict life to be in the future. I could get used to tooling around on hoverboards. 1:50 PM CT Starz Kids & Family

4. 6. 2001: A Space Odyssey. And if you like futuristic, It’s eve more interesting now in 2009 to look back at what Stanley Kubric thought our life would be like not now, but eight years ago. 2:20 PM CT Encore Drama

7. NBA Playoff: Game 5: Magic at Cavaliers. Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals series. 7:30 PM CT TNT

8. Grease. This and Saturday Night Fever helped John Travolta make the switch from sitcom actor to film actor in the 1970s. 7:30 PM CT VH1
