It’s the unofficial start of the Fall season tonight and there are so many premieres to watch tonight. Be sure to give some of these returning and new shows a shot.
7/6c – ESPN – Monday Night Football – The 43rd season premiere of the long running tradition will premiere with the Cincinnati Bengals versus the Baltimore Ravens. I couldn’t even begin to tell you anything about these two teams or if it’ll even be a good game, but if you love football then you should be watching.
8/7c – VH1 – Basketball Wives LA – This train wreck of a show returns for its second season premiere tonight and for all that love this series it won’t disappoint. People returning to the show are Jackie Christie, Gloria and Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo and Draya Michele. Other newbies will be introduced as the season goes on and there will always be enough fighting and drama for everyone to get their fill.
8/7c – NBC – The Voice – Season 3 premiere – This show in 2 seasons has definitely gone downhill. I almost stopped watching last season because the quality just wasn’t as good as Season 1. I am holding out hope that they have some amazing singers this year. NBC is rolling out a three night premiere for this show and tonight starts of with the beginning of the blind auditions with all the coaches returning (Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and CeeLo Green), Carson Daly as host and Christina Milian doing absolutely nothing.
9/8c – A&E – Hoarders – Season 6 Premiere. This show is a mess. I just can’t take it. I’m all for train wrecks but this is just a sad show. Tonight’s premiere focuses on a husband who threatens to take his children and leave since his wife has made their home a complete nightmare to live in with the amount of clothes she has accumulated. Another woman moves into her son’s apartment because she can no longer live in her home because of her hoarding but it still follows her to her new place.
10/9c – NBC – The New Normal – Series Premiere. This show from creator Ryan Murphy is about a gay couple Bryan (Andrew Rannells; The Book of Mormon) and David (Justin Bartha; The Hangover) who want a baby. And just when they think they will never get one, Goldie (Georgia King; One Day) shows up looking for an escape from dead-end life and her bigoted grandmother (Ellen Barkin; She Hate Me, Ocean’s Thirteen). She decides to move her young daughter with her to LA and while seeking means to gain some money decides to be the surrogate to Bryan and David’s baby. This show could have potential. We shall see. It’ll probably be good this season or this first episode even and then just disappoint the rest of the season in typical Murphy fashion. The show’s regular night is Tuesdays @9:30/8:30c.
10:30/9:30c – NBC – Go On – Series Premiere. This show ran its premiere towards the end of the Olympics on a random late night and most people didn’t catch it. Here is your chance to get it again. This show stars Matthew Perry (Friends, The Good Wife) as a Ryan, a man who recently lost his wife in a car accident is now ready to get back to work.While he seems like himself, his boss wants him to get some counseling to deal with the loss. He joins a support group with to get in, get out and get back to work as quickly as possible. Ryan’s total lack of interest in healing might be just what this group needs – and maybe, what he needs to move on with his life. I watched the preview episode and I didn’t hate but I didn’t like it either. I shall be giving it another go tonight to see how I feel again. The thing is, as horrible as this sounds, I secretly want this show to fail so that it can free up Matthew Perry for The Good Wife where there is an amazing showdown with him and Peter (Chris Noth) going down. The show will also move to its regular night on Tuesdays @9/8c.
