“Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” starring Neil Patrick Harris makes its television debut tonight

You may have seen Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog online but now you can see it on broadcast television complete with commercial interruptions!

Originally produced in 2008, the little online musical starring Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion went on to be named #15 in Time Magazine’s Top 50 Inventions of 2008 and also won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Online Sensation and the Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class – Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Programs.

It features NPH as Billy, a.k.a. Dr. Horrible.  Billy’s a budding super villain whose plans always get interrupted by Captain Hammer (Fillion).

This was dreamed up during the 2008 writer’s strike by Joss Whedon and his brothers Zack and Jed who were able to move forward because it was a project for the web, not television which was being negotiated.

But now it is on television after all! The special airs tonight on The CW at 9 p.m.

Here is a preview:
