9/8c – CW – Supernatural – Season 8 Premiere. Dean re-emerges from Purgatory, but he isn’t alone. He heads straight for Sam, but the reunion isn’t exactly what he thought it would be. Sam drops everything to join his brother, but leaving the life he had grown to enjoy turns out to be harder than he imagined. Dean and Sam look for Kevin who has managed to escape Crowley’s grasp, but things come to a head quickly when Kevin tells them what it is that Crowley wants.
10/9c – VH1 – Couples Therapy – Season 2 Premiere. The will examine the complicated and often misunderstood world of high-profile relationships. ” Alex McCord & Simon van Kempen, Shayne and Nik Lamas-Richie, Todd “Too Short” Shaw & Monica Payne, Joel “JoJo” & Tashaunda “Tiny” Hailey, and Doug Hutchison & Courtney Stodden will all take a seat on Dr. Jenn Berman’s couch.
10/9c – Bravo – Life After Top Chef – Series Premiere. The show follows Richard Blais in Atlanta, Jen Carroll in Philadelphia, Spike Mendelsohn in D.C., and Fabio Viviani in Los Angeles as they reach milestones in both their personal lives and culinary careers, from opening their own restaurants to expanding franchises and establishing themselves as culinary leaders in the food world.
Fall premieres continue tonight. Got some Glee kids, some housewives and Brian Williams? Here are the premieres for Thursday, September 13.
9/8c – FOX – Glee- Season 4 Premiere. In this new season, the members of New Directions compete among themselves to see who will become the next star of the glee club. During open auditions, a fresh crop of students are introduced (Yeah cause that’s what this show needs– more new characters) Meanwhile, Rachel (Lea Michele) has a rocky start in New York and struggles to please her demanding dance teacher, guest star Kate Hudson (How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, Almost Famous). She also meets Brody, a handsome upperclassman who will certainly get in the mix of the Rachel/Finn tale. This show is pretty dead to me and there is nothing that can save it. It got so ridiculous, I quit. Won’t be back. I hope it gets back on track for anyone that is still a fan but I doubt it. You should just go back and watch the perfection that is season 1 and just stick to that.
9/8c – BRAVO – The Real Housewives of Miami – Season 2 Premiere. Returning Housewives Lea Black, Adriana de Moura and Marysol Patton are joined this season by socialite Lisa Hochstein, supermodel Joanna Krupa, successful lawyer and chef Ana Quincoces and celebrity dentist Karent Sierra. Also returning in a recurring role is Alexia Echevarria, who made her son Frankie’s rehabilitation from a bad automobile accident earlier this year her main priority. I’m actually surprised this one is back. I mean it has been almost 2 years since it was on and the show just wasn’t up to par with the crazy and drama factor like the other Housewives franchises. They clearly really wanted to change that and decided to bring 4 new women in. 7 women is entirely too much. I mean you have an hour every week; how are you supposed to get to know the ladies? I couldn’t care less about who they are as long as they bring the drama. I watch every other Housewives city (don’t judge me), so I’ll be back again for this one.
10/9c – NBC – Rock Center With Brian Williams – Season 2 premiere. The news magazine returns for season 2 and on tonight’s premiere Nancy Snyderman examines Internet dependency and studies that equate it with drug or alcohol addiction. Also: a report on media outlets that scrutinize statements by public officials; an interview with pop sensation Justin Bieber; and a look at extravagant family reunions. This show is a good but it does absolutely nothing to dig NBC out of the hole that they are in.
Suburgatory – ABC 8:30/7:30c – Season 1 finale. Tessa feels left out when the town celebrates the mothers in the community. Dalia takes off for a trip to Israel leaving Dallas all alone. Meanwhile, an endangered-animal theme at the Lerners’ baby shower draws a not so good reaction from Eden; and Fred surprises Sheila with one of her favorite performers. I love this show and I’m glad its coming back for a second season. It’s so funny. Jeremy Sisto is so great. He always takes me back to his Clueless days as Elton.
Criminal Minds – CBS 9/8c -Season 7 finale. A federal bank is under attack and the BAU is called to negotiate a hostage situation. As events unfold in real-time, tensions rise as one of the team becomes a hostage. Also, Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) says goodbye. This is like the 3rd time she’s saying goodbye. This will be the last time though as the studio didn’t want her to leave and pursue other shows so she opted to leave. I like her and will miss her character on the show.
Interior Therapy With Jeff Lewis – BRAVO 9/8c – Season 1 finale. Jeff and Jenni find that comedian Mark Decarlo has bad taste. Jeff finally meets his match tonight. It’s gonna be two Jeff’s going at each other. This show is actually pretty good. I like his design stuff and the couples and families whose homes they fix up are pretty messed up in some form or fashion. It’s stuff.
Don’t judge me but most of my Sunday night was spent watching the premiere of some of my guilty pleasure reality shows (I didn’t have to work today woo hoooo yay for government holidays) as well as trying to clean up my dvr. But we’re talking reality shows here and Celebrity Apprentice, Khloe and Lamar, The Amazing Race, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta were on deck for my Sunday night watching pleasure.

Lots of reality returns tonight as most scripted shows returned last week. Here’s what’s returns and premieres tonight.
Dance Moms (Lifetime) – Season Premiere. I watched an episode of this show because I was forced to by a friend who is obsessed with it. It was of course a train wreck in the same vein of Toddlers and Tiaras. So if you like Toddlers and Tiaras, we can no longer be friends but you will also enjoy this show.
The Game (BET) – Season Premiere. Brittany Daniels (Kelly Pitts) is out and Brandy Norwood is in as Chardonnay (could this not be a more ghetto name, then again this is what this show has become on BET) who gets into a romantic entanglement with Jason Pitts (Coby Bell). I watched the show while it was on the CW and was happy that it got saved but not that it got saved by BET. It has gotten so bad. The characters are former shells of themselves and the writing is TERRIBLE. It reminds me of the even WORSE show Single Ladies that airs on VH1.
Tabitha’s Takeover (BRAVO) – Season Premiere. I love some Tabitha Coffey. This season she’s not only taking over salons, but restaurants, boutiques, etc. Yes! More ways for her to get even snarkier.
Let’s Stay Together (BET) – Season Premiere. Season 2 opens and picks up with dramas surrounding Charles’ and Stacy’s wedding. Here, Charles escapes from an elevator and attempts to head home. Meanwhile, Troy arrives at Tasha’s house, upsetting Jamal. I don’t know anything about these characters. All I know is I watched the pilot, it was terrible and I gave it a pass.
Bravo is cleaning house with the Real House Wives of New York cast. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that several cast members of the show are out. More details inside.
