Surfing The Bay: Thursday, August 12, 2010

Get off the computer and get in front of your TV (or if you don't actually have to get up, turn your head... and if you don't even have to turn you're head... well you're too lazy for your own good) because here's what's on the tube for you tonight. All times are pacific.

Giants Postgame Live | 3:30 p.m. | CSN Bay Area - By the time this post goes up, I'm sure the game will be ending or close to ending, and the best way to recap the action and the storylines is to watch this, obviously.

Chronicle Live: Authentic Postgame BBQ Edition | 4:00 p.m. | CSN Bay Area - I hadn't heard of this, mostly because I've been under a rock and also missing these Surfing The Bay posts but players from the Giants, Sharks and Earthquakes, as well as a few MMA fighters and other analysts will be on - better tune in!

NFL Total Access | 4:00 p.m. | NFL Network - I explain this every time, it's the best show for general NFL news. You have to watch it. Unless you're watching the other thing I noted for this time slot. Otherwise, no excuses.

Women's Tennis: Western and Southern Open | 4:00 p.m. | Tennis Channel - I'm a big tennis fan. At this point, I believe this will have been on for awhile - but never too late to tune in to potential awesomeness, right? Right.

NFL Exhibition: Oakland Raiders @ Dallas Cowboys | 6:00 p.m. | KICU - Football is back for Bay Area teams! We've got a stream up with a preview of the game and the like, so go and check that out - then watch the game (while of course participating in Silver And Black Pride's game thread) and then after that comingh ere and reading the recap. What do you mean shameless plug? I'm full of shame!

Arena Football: Milwauke @ Spokane | 5:00 p.m. | NFL Network - Putting this below the Raiders even though it starts later. Playoff football is playoff football, should be a good game, I know I'll be flipping back and forth.

Bellator Fighting Champions: Bellator XXIV | 1:00 a.m. | CSN Bay Area - I know it's going to be on late - but Bellator 24 is on today, and then airs late on CSN Bay Area via tape delay. Check your local listings to see if you get it without tape delay on Fox SportsNet, but either way this promises to be a good mixed martial arts event and something you should watch if you can.

Other stuff not related to sports...

Futurama | 10:00 p.m. | Comedy Central - I'm a big Futurama and the new season has been good and bad at the same time. More good than bad though, I think. New episode.

Stan Lee's Superhumans | 10:00 p.m. | History Channel - It may be on sooner, the guide isn't very clear, but I watched the first episode of this last week and found it to be surprisingly insightful. It's far off from the freak show aspect that shows like Ripley's endorses - it's actual an interesting, informative show about people with crazy talents. New episode.
