Can you feel the fall in the air? Do you know what that means? It’s time for some football! It’s Thursday night with CBS offering Thursday Night Football with the New England Patriots at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It used to be that football was on networks more often during prime time. The competitive nature of TV has changed these dynamics, but the hope of turning on football and turning out the real world is still possible. And even if you don’t want to watch the game, Thursday has some great programs on to enjoy. Take a look at some highlights below!
Will & Grace Bloopers
Will & Grace jumped on the American sitcom scene quickly to become one of the most discussed shows on TV. On Thursday night fans will once again tune in to see what the show offers (and I’m sure nobody will be disappointed.) If you can’t wait until prime time and need a shot of Will & Grace before dinner, check out the new Will & Grace bloopers released officially by the show. A video of outtakes, bloopers and funny moments, it’s a great way to fill in that empty space until the new episode airs tonight.
ABC’s Scandal final season
On Thursday night the viewers of Scandal might not be available. The debut of the final season will have the attention of every Olivia Pope fan as they watch to see what she has up her sleeve for the last time. On Wednesday night Kerry Washington, who plays the aforementioned character, was on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, but she didn’t give away any secrets. Instead she shared a brief history of some of her other jobs when she was younger, including being a high school substitute teacher.
James Corden celebrates Christmas in October
For three glorious minutes fans of The Late Late Show with James Corden enjoyed a little Christmas holiday fun. The talented entertainer was feeling a little out of sorts on his show and wanted to cheer himself up. While it might be the beginning of October, that didn’t stop him from putting on the Christmas music, bringing out Santa Claus and parading a camel around the studio. The funny skit had fans thinking about the holidays, snow and plenty of joy.
At first I really thought this was an awkward skit that wouldn’t work, but Corden’s brilliant. Not only does it make you feel better to get in the mood for the holidays, it made viewers laugh too. It’s October and he’s handing out Christmas gifts (which were demanded back at the 3 minute mark.) It’s a funny look at celebrating a holiday off calendar and the desperately needed laughs are well placed in our all too serious surrounding world.
