I usually don’t do any sort of posts about what’s on TV. I figure there are lots of other sites that do the trick and also your good old fashioned menu on the TV. But tonight there is just so much amazing stuff on TV, I wanted to share everything I’ll be watching and my thoughts on one new show premiering that I think is most certainly worth watching.
Glee, 8 pm, FOX: The second episode of the second season is dedicated to Britney Spears (she guest stars as well). To be honest, I couldn’t care either way for Britney Spears (her music is catchy but it’s not frequently played on my iPod) but this episode is going to be EPIC. Madonna episode level of epic. The music has already been released and it’s amazing. There are new takes on songs (“Stronger” is sung by Artie), Emma is BACK (holy crap I am excited) and Sue Sylvester seems more angry than usual! I really can’t even contain my excitement.
No Ordinary Family, 8 pm, ABC: This new ABC drama that centers around a family who gets in a plane crash and discovers they have superpowers, is in an unfortunate time slot. However, it is really worth watching. No Ordinary Family stars Michael Chiklis (from The Shield) and Julie Benz (from Dexter) who have great chemistry and headline the show very well. The show is being compared to The Incredibles, and while I see the similarities, it’s very different in tone. It has a ton of potential, great acting and is really just a lot of fun to watch. I recommend checking it out.
The Biggest Loser, 8 pm, NBC: How can I watch all of these shows, you ask? Magic! Or um, DVR and On Demand. Anyway, last week The Biggest Loser had its 10th season premiere but things really get kicked off this week as they head to the ranch and there is an elimination. I love seeing Bob and Jillian whip people into shape and the show never disappoints.
Life Unexpected, 9 pm, CW: I wish I could get 4 million people to watch this show because it is just so so good. Tonight’s episode “Criminal Incriminated” centers around Lux deciding whether she should buy the answers to an exam so she can pass. Oh Lux! And there may be some banana bread laced with pot. This amazing drama about an unconventional family needs your support. It’s amazing! You should watch! Also Britt Robertson (who plays Lux) will be tweeting during the episode at twitter.com/officialLUXcast.
Raising Hope and Running Wilde, 9-10 pm, FOX: Both of these new FOX comedies air their second episode tonight. I enjoyed the pilots of both so I’m hopeful that the 2nd episodes will be good. However, with my incredibly busy TV schedule, they probably will have to be watched online the next day.
Parenthood, 10 pm, NBC: The Bravermans are back and better than ever. Lauren Graham is one of my favorite actresses ever and I love that she is back on TV, even if she isn’t playing Lorelai Gilmore. The show is funny, dramatic, heart-warming and just about everything you look for in a drama. Each part of the Braverman clan deals with their own interesting issues, all while standing by each other. One of the Executive Producers, Jason Katims, is from Friday Night Lights, and the show is just as emotionally resonant. Watch!
The Good Wife, 10 pm, CBS: The Good Wife is back for its 2nd season premiere after a breathtaking season finale cliffhanger. In its freshman season, it quickly set itself apart from any other procedural by being about the people and not the cases. Julianna Margulies leads this stunning cast as Alicia Florrick, the wife of a politician involved in a sex scandalf. Rounding out the cast is Josh Charles, Chris Noth, Archie Panjabi, Christine Baranski and Matt Czuchry. The season premiere is just as amazing as the finale was. Who will Alicia pick? Will she choose to stay with her husband or run into the arms of incredibly good looking Will Gardner (Josh Charles)? I can tell you this — the decision won’t be made right away in episode one. The creators of The Good Wife are too smart for that. Instead, we will have to wait — who knows how long (my guess is maybe half way through the season?) for some sort of resolution. There is also a VERY racy scene in the premiere, one that I was surprised to see on network television. But The Good Wife pushes boundaries a lot so I enjoyed it.Tweet
