I can’t believe San Diego Comic-Con is only three weeks away–I’m excited and a bit overwhelmed, They haven’t even released the schedule yet, and I’m already stressing out about how I’m going to make it to all the panels I want to see—and when I’m actually going to sleep. But enough about my problems other people probably wish they had. Let’s get to what we think you should check out on TV tonight.
Syfy has moved their Saturday original movies to Thursdays for the summer, and tonight is the premiere of Independence Daysaster. It is July 4th and the President (Tom Everett Scott, Southland, That Thing You Do) is returning to his hometown to see his son (Keenan Tracey, Bates Motel) and brother (Ryan Merriman, Pretty Little Liars, Final Destination 3), when Earth is suddenly attacked by aliens. Now it is up to the President of the United States and his fireman brother to save the planet. While the film’s premise is awfully similar to Independence Day, I still found it different enough. It is a nice mix of action, drama, and humor, and certainly of higher quality than the typical Syfy original movie.
Find out if this unique family can save the world tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Rookie Blue, Hell’s Kitchen, Does Someone Have to Go?, Wilfred, Chopped, The Hero, Burn Notice, Graceland, and The Graham Norton Show.
