Summer T.V. Premieres – June 3, 2012

For a Sunday night, there is a lot going on in the world of T.V. premieres! There are four premieres and a special event going on tonight, which means there is lots of variety, and even some that the SurlyGurls will be watching (or PVRing while we’re at the theatre seeing ‘Snow White and The Huntsman’)

First up, at 9 PM on A&E is the premiere of their comedic cop drama ‘The Glades’. We can’t be the only ones out there that think this is just a new version of ‘CSI: Miami’ with a better looking cast. Who keeps green lighting all these cop shows, seriously?!

Lifetime is also competing for your views at 9 PM with the premiere of the fourth season of ‘Drop Dead Diva’. The hilarious journey of Deb/Jane as she learns just how different life can be for a plus-size girl continues tonight. We’re not saying this is the height of intellectual television, but it is a cute little comedy, but it is one of Whitney’s guilty pleasures.

Midseason T.V. Premieres – Jan 10, 2012

It’s all about competition tonight on television!

The crazy women of ‘Dance Moms’ return at 8 PM on Lifetime tonight. If there was ever an argument for keeping little girls out of competitive dance classes, this show is it. It still amazes us that there are women out there who will spend every penny they make on sequinned costumes and cross-country trips just so their kid can win a competition.

A&E is premiering their newest competition show tonight at 9 PM. ‘Shipping Wars’ is the third “wars” show the channel has produced and looks to follow the formula pretty close. The truckers on ‘Shipping Wars’ bid for the chance to haul unusual cargo across America, taking anything from million dollar luxury cars to camels.

Not to be outdone, Bravo is premiering ‘Tabitha Takes Over’ tonight at 10 PM. Tabitha and her always perfect hair are branching out from just salons and helping all kinds of small business owners. She’ll even be taking on a doggie hotel this season. She’s like the prettier, nicer, female version of Gordon Ramsey.

However, what we’ll be tuning into tonight is ‘The L.A. Complex’ tonight at 9 PM on Muchmusic or CTV here in Canada. It’s our beloved Jewel Staite’s new show about actors trying to make it in L.A. Sorry to our American friends, you’ll have to wait until the spring to see it when The CW picks it up.

Midseason T.V. Premieres – Jan 5, 2012

Oh Yeeeeahhh!!! It’s time for smushing and fist pumping again. God help us all.

‘Jersey Shore’ returns to MTV tonight at 10 PM for their 5th season. How these fake ‘n’ bake, sexed up Guidos have managed to infect our televisions for FIVE seasons is beyond us. We’re sure this season will be more of the same – G.T.L – Gym. Tanning. Laundry. Who wouldn’t want to watch that?

If you’re more interested in watching people with ACTUAL talent and skill, tune into Lifetime tonight for the premiere of ‘Project Runway: All Stars’ tonight at 9 PM. All your favourite designers are back and battling it out again. This is one of our guilty pleasure shows, because we love us some new and exciting fashion!

Returning from the holiday hiatus:

The Vampire Diaries – 8 PM
Grey’s Anatomy – ABC 9 PM
The Secret Circle – CW 9 PM
Private Practice – ABC 10 PM
