Spring T.V. Premieres – Apr 1, 2012

Its time to return to Westeros and the fight for power.

Season 2 of HBO’s wildly popular ‘Game of Thrones’ returns tonight at 9 PM. As if there weren’t enough people vying for the title of King, this season promises many new characters who will be throwing down the gauntlet for the title as well.

Season 2 will be based around creator and fantasy-God George R.R. Martin’s second book in the series ‘A Clash of Kings’. Hopefully the show can keep up the momentum and keep fans happy.

Spring T.V. Premieres – Mar 23, 2012

If you’re one of the few people not flocking to the theatres tonight to see ‘The Hunger Games’, you’ll be happy to know that the small screen does have some excitement in store for you!

The big news tonight: Castiel is back!!! Everyone’s favourite not-so-naive-anymore angel returns to ‘Supernatural’ in tonight’s episode airing on the CW at 9 PM. In our opinion, he’s been gone WAY too long and this news is ALMOST enough to keep us away from the theatres as well…almost. God love the PVR!

Everyone’s favourite dimension-jumping crime-fighting team is back tonight at 9 PM on FOX when ‘Fringe’ finally returns with a whopping 8 new episodes in a row. While we think JJ Abrams is a freaking genius and we love a good multi-dimensional sci-fi story, we’ve fallen out of love with ‘Fringe’ lately. Oh, we’ll watch it to the end, as we are fiercely loyal, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it axed from the schedule next year.

Spring T.V. Premieres – Mar. 22, 2012

Tonight is going to be a slow one on the television.

FOX is premiering its newest hour-long drama, ‘Touch’, at 9 PM tonight. Somehow it seems like this show has been on for weeks now with all the advertising they have been doing.

Kiefer Sutherland returns to television as a dad with an autistic son who sees the whole universe in numbers. Jack Bauer he isn’t. We’re sure there are going to be some heart-warming moments between father and son, and some life-affirming lessons throughout the season. That still isn’t enough to make us invest a single moment in this show.

Spring T.V. Premieres – Mar. 8, 2012

Brace yourself Canada….Abby Lee Miller and her troupe of tiny terrors are back for another season of tutus and tantrums.

Slice will be airing the new season of the So-Bad-I-Can’t-Look-Away ‘Dance Moms’ at 9 PM. Then, as if one hour of a large woman yelling at small girls and their insane mothers wasn’t enough, you can watch yet another episode at 10 PM.

If two hours of overbearing moms pushing their kids to do better isn’t how you would like to spend your Thursday evening, you could always tune into the spring finale of ‘The Finder’ at 8 PM on FOX. Of course, even Walter Sherman would be hard pressed to “find” anyone that even watches that show. We’re convinced it was created so that the actors from ‘Bones’ would have something to do while Emily Deschanel has her baby.

Spring T.V. Premieres – Mar. 6, 2012

We can not explain how excited we are for tonight’s premiere! After waiting and hoping and wondering if the show would survive into it’s second season, ‘Breaking In’ is back!

FOX has brought back the quirky show about the coolest private security company of all time to round out their Tuesday night comedy lineup at 9:30 PM. It’s the perfect pairing with our beloved ‘New Girl’.

Seriously, we would KILL to work for Contra Security. We love the collection of super nerds and outcasts on the team…we would totally fit in! Also, we’re fiercely loyal to our favourite actors and we love our boy Bret Harrison (check out this amazing short film he was in.)

Don’t forget, ‘Raising Hope’ has moved into it’s new time slot on FOX starting tonight as well. You can find the kooky Chance Family on at 8 PM now.

Spring T.V. Premieres – Mar 4, 2012

Tonight at 10pm, ABC premieres its new heavily promoted prime-time soap opera ‘GCB’. Starring Kristin Chenoweth, Leslie Bibb, and Annie Potts, this series is like ‘Mean Girls’ with Dallas socialites in place of catty high schoolers. The dialogue is quick and funny, not to mention Chenoweth looks incredible as the GCB “Queen Bee”.

Based on Kim Gatlin’s popular book Good Christian Bitches, and brought to the small screen by Darren Star (Sex and the City) and writer Robert Harling (Steel Magnolias) this is sure to be a hit. Especially considering all those ‘Desperate Housewives’ fans will need a new show to flock to when the ladies of Wisteria Drive bid farewell later this year.

Also premiering tonight:

Army Wives – Lifetime 9pm
Breakout Kings – A&E 10pm

Spring T.V. Premieres – Mar 1, 2012

Spring has arrived friends. We know because there is a whole new line-up of mediocre looking shows just waiting to premiere.

Apparently alternate realities are the new black this season. NBC’s newest show, ‘Awake’, premieres tonight at 10 PM.

We will admit that this show does intrigue us at least a little bit. The premise – a detective gets in a horrible car crash with his family. He wakes up to realize his son has died and begins seeing a shrink to deal. But wait! The next morning he wakes up to realize it’s actually his wife that’s died and he’s seeing a different shrink to deal with that.

The only hesitation we have about investing our precious little time (seriously, we already watch WAY too much t.v.!) in this show is the inevitable fact that the writers will take the easy way out once it reaches it’s end and tell us…wait for it….that it’s actually HIM that is dead. Promise us another ending and we would be willing to fit ‘Awake’ into the PVR schedule.
