Remember the good old days when season finales meant you got to escape the grasp of your television for a mere 3 months of the year? You got to get outside and enjoy the company of actual people? There are so many premieres happening tonight it’s like September has come early…only with really shitty offerings.
Apparently NBC and FOX are competing to have the absolute worst take on the “Dating Game”. NBC will be creating some kind of terrible Frankenstein’s monster of reality game shows with ‘Love In The Wild’ at 8 PM. It’s a little bit ‘Survivor’, a little bit ‘Fear Factor’ and a little bit ‘The Bachelor’. At the same time FOX will premiere ‘Take Me Out’, a show in which 30 women will compete for one man by turning a light podium off and on. If that sounds like the worst part, it’s not, this show is hosted by the always irritating George Lopez.
Well, it was only a matter of time before someone decided to cash in on the drama and jealously of the ballet world. What makes better reality t.v. than a bunch of perfectionist super-athletes all competing for the same two roles in a production?
Looks like The CW is going to bring you all the Pas De Deux and Plies you could ask for with the premiere of ‘Breaking Pointe’ tonight at 8 PM. Focusing on the Salt Lake City ballet company, Ballet West, the show will follow both the personal and performance lives of it’s best and brightest. We can only hope for some ‘Black Swan’ style freak out to make it interesting.
Well, tonight gives us half an hour of relief from the constant reality t.v. viewing. Of course, it comes in the form of a cheesey, family-friendy sitcom…so you know, what is worse really?
If you’re looking for something to watch at 8 PM tonight, you’ve got two choices:
On ABC Family, the second season of ‘Melissa and Joey’ premieres tonight. Someone, somewhere thought it would be an amazing idea to pair Melissa Joan Hart and Joey ‘Whoa’ Lawrence up – we’re not sure why either. It’s pretty much ‘Who’s The Boss’ for a new generation with Joey playing the ‘manny’ to Melissa’s politician.
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.
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.
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.
It’s going to be a BIG night on television tonight! Not only is Discovery Channel unveiling their newest 7-part series on our incredible planet, but one of the most anticipated season finales airs tonight as well.
‘Frozen Planet’ is the newest in the series to make us aware of just how wonderous and amazing our third rock from the sun actually is. If anyone knows how to show us the intricacies of both the Arctic and Antarctic it’s the BBC and Discovery Channel. The first episode will air tonight at 8 PM.
After you’ve learned a little something about the reality of our planet, you’ll have lots of time to change over to AMC at 9 PM for the season finale of ‘The Walking Dead’. We can’t even imagine what is going to happen, that was one massive herd of walkers heading for the farm, and lets face it, Rick (and Carl…who gives a 10-year-old kid a gun?!) have already killed one of their best fighters. Its going to be bloody and we can’t wait to see it!
