Summer T.V. Premieres – May 28, 2012
Now that our season finale hangovers are passing, it’s time to look ahead to what the summer has in store for us on the television. It’s a long wait for September, and there is nothing wrong with spending those humid, 40-degree nights in the glorious cool of air conditioning, giving some of the summer premieres a chance.
We know, summer television is usually the backwoods cousin of the regular season, but you never know what you could find. After all, ‘True Blood’, ‘Weeds’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ are all slated to start their new seasons.
As for tonight, the pickings are slim, unless of course you LOVE “reality” television. A&E seems to be the only station premiering shows tonight, and they aren’t exactly the SurlyGurls cup o’ tea.
At 9 PM ‘The Demon’ and his new bride return on ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels’. Now, we’ll admit, we watch this one every so often, who doesn’t like watching a womanizing, braggart, Rock’n’Roll God get told off by just about everyone in his family? While this is probably more scripted than some of the fictional shows on T.V. there is something hilarious about watching rich kids get cut off from the family fortune and 50-something parents decide to adopt a new baby. It’s a disaster waiting to happen.
If the aging rock star and his playboy bride don’t fill your need for drama, fear not. Following Gene and Shannon at 10 PM are two back-to-back episodes of ‘Monster-In-Laws’. Nothing says entertainment than watching middle-class Americans fight and argue and beat on each other. Oh, wait, they bring an ‘expert’ in to help solve their problems, thank goodness, that makes it alright to profit from people’s problems.
