Sunday Night premieres tonight are mostly from the lovely Showtime network but there is also one from Lifetime.
Nurse Jackie, Showtime 9pm/8c – Season 4 Premiere. Love this show. This season is going to start off with Jackie (Edie Falco; The Sopranos) at rock bottom from her family finding out about her prescription drug addiction. She heads to to a rehab while All Saints (the hospital they work at) is taken over by a new director (Bobby Cannavale; Third Watch) who makes a major change in personnel. I’m so glad that there have finally revealed Jackie’s addiction to her family. Just hated how she was getting away with everything. From the promo looks like it’s going to be a pretty good season.
The Big C, Showtime 9:30pm/8:30c – Season 3 Premiere. Cathy (Laura Linney; The Savages, Kinsey) receives medical news that gives her reason to hope for recovery; Sean supports Andrea’s newfound appreciation for her heritage; Adam turns to prayer to help his ailing mother. Excited for this season because Susan Sarandon (Stepmom, Jeff Who Lives At Home) is going to be guest starring thought it.
The Client List, Lifetime 10pm/9c – Series Premiere. Jennifer Love Hewitt (Party of Five, Ghost Whisperer) stars in this series that was based on the Lifetime movie of the same title that Hewitt played in the year before. The show is about a single mother who makes ends meet by working as a massage therapist at an overly accommodating day spa. I’m not even gonna lie, I watched the Lifetime movie of this and I’ll be watching this as well lol.
The Borgias, Showtime 10pm/9c – Season 2 Premiere. This season is the continuing the saga of the 15th-century family, headed by patriarch Rodrigo Borgia aka Pope Alexander VI (Jeremy Irons; The Man In The Iron Mask, Margin Call) — which blended the influence of the Roman Catholic Church with plenty of temporal power and wealth (not to mention heaping helpings of sin and debauchery along the way). In tonight’s premiere, Pope Alexander VI takes a new lover and throws a big party for the citizens of Rome; the rivalry between Cesare and Juan finally boils over; Della Rovere narrowly escapes an assassination attempt.
