Summer Television May 27, 2013


45c4e-summer2btvHappy Memorial Day!!!! Hope everyone is having an amazing day. With all the barbecues and poolside activity happening today, some might not be thinking about what’s on television tonight but a couple of premieres are happening tonight.

The Bachelorette – ABC 8/7c. Season 9 premiere. You all know the premise. One of the ladies that was dumped on The Bachelor gets chosen to be the new bachelorette. She then is given 25 suitors looking for “love” to choose from. I really don’t know why this show is still on. There have been maybe 3 relationships that have lasted out of all the seasons of the Bachelor and Bachelorette. It is a little fun to watch these people act ridiculous on television.

The weekend is ending so it’s time to unwind with some premieres tonight.

8/7c – VH1 – Rehab With Dr. Drew – Season 6 Premiere. This season instead of focusing on celebrities, Dr. Drew is going to take on everyday young adults who are going through the rehabilitation process. From heartbreak to hope, you will see Dr. Drew and his patients on their difficult and deeply emotional journey to sobriety.

9/8c – VH1 – Behind The Music – Season 15 premiere. The music documentary series returns with a season that premieres with the behind the scenes story of the group Train. I won’t watch this episode as I don’t really like Train — at least not since Drops of Jupiter. But I shall be checking out the other artists they will be featuring for the rest of the season like Ne-Yo, Gym Class Heroes, Toni Braxton, T.I. (updated), P!nk (updated) and Carrie Underwood. Nicole Scherzinger will also be featured but I won’t watch that one as I don’t like her.

9/8c – HBO – Boardwalk Empire – Season 3 premiere. The premiere is set more than a year after the events of the finale. Nucky is feeling some emotional conflicts with killing his former protegé. Despite this conflict, he refuses to slow down in business. He is going all out to fight his new rival, Gyp Rosetti played by Bobby Cannavale (Will & Grace, Third Watch), who challenges the corrupt politician for control of the bootleg business.

10/9c – Weeds – Showtime – This isn’t a premiere but it’s the series finale of the show. A show that has had more drama and laughs than a lot of other shows. There have been a lot of ups and downs for Nancy Botwin and her crazy crew and I’m sad to see them go. I hope the show goes out strong and with some resolution.

And This Is Why I Continue To Not Watch VH1’s “Single Ladies”


Single Ladies is a show that airs on VH1 that revolves around the romantic relationships of three friends played by LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea, and Denise Vasi. I watched the first episode of this show when it premiered last year and it’s one of the worst shows ever. The writing and acting are just so awfully bad. There are some shows that are bad but somehow justify to yourself a reason to still watch (Top Model, Tough Love, Jersey Shore, etc). This show has none of that. You would think it would be a little decent too since it’s produced by Queen Latifah but nope. Season 2 of the show premiered this past Monday and a friend of mine watched it for some reason and was kind enough to send me his thoughts as he watched the episode.

  • Is it just me, or in order to be on this show, you have to have a bad weave/wig?
  • Horrible/unnatural introductions and backstories:
  • “My aunt used to live next door to her in Inglewood, and I’d stay there every other summer.  Now we’re like sisters.”
    • I mean, can you really be “like sisters” with somebody you see on average 6 weeks a year?
  • “I just got an email from Val.  She’s not coming back from Milan…forever”.
  • Is everybody an effing Tango dancer?!  I mean dang, now they got a brother feeling like he needs to take classes and ish
  • Oh, hello Rick Fox awkwardly interjected into the scene….with his non acting self.  Somehow, they make him seem shorter than he actually is.  I think they make him stand in a hole or something.
  • Great dialogue: “As you’re looking for things, look for a new dance partner.  Because as you know…it takes two to tango!”
  • “Good morning, Single Lady”
  • Oh, and a literal use of the title helps us remember what we’re watching
  • Did they just REALLY pour out some champagne in honor of Stacey Dash?!?
  • What’s up with these hallucinations?
  • Why is this show feeling like a Mexican telanovela?
  • (we’re only at the second commercial break.  this is easily the most awesomely bad show I’ve watched before)
  • Aaaand nerdy girl becomes magically sexy by taking down her library bun. Never seen that before.
  • I think Big Boy got new veneers.  They look good.  I think rappers getting their teeth fixed is a new trendy: Jay-Z, 50, Nelly…maybe Fabolous just didn’t get the memo yet?
  • Who is Shawn Clark, the lawyer…who busted into the interrogation room RIGHT as LisaRaye asked for her right to attorney?
  • Oh, this random convenient back story tells me that he’s her ex…who got another chick pregnant
  • I will say this is the best that Lisa Raye has looked,ever
  • She’s eating a plain bagel.  No cream cheese; no butter; no jelly.  Is that what’s hot in the streets now.  dry bread is the new black!!
  • What grown man says “You’re not interested in me!  I’m nice. I’m decent looking.  And I make six figures!!” [pouting face]
  • Does Queen Latifah think that just because she is singing the theme song that this show will be as good as Living Single

Thank you friend for letting me know that I can continue to not watch Single Ladies.

Premieres and Returns For Thursday 1/12/12


More premieres and returns tonight. NBC Thursday night comedies are back, well most of them (sorry Community fans), as well as CBS’ Thursday lineup. Also, VH1 has the Critics’ Choice awards. Soo much to watch and these are just the premieres.

8/7c

Big Bang Theory (CBS) – Winter return. Sheldon gets in trouble with Amy when he isn’t impressed by her recent accomplishment, and Howard must come to grips with Bernadette’s dislike of children.

 

30 Rock (NBC) – Season Premiere. Love this show. It got pushed up to mid-season because of Tina Fey’s pregnancy but thank goodness its back. Too bad its at the expense of Community. Tonight’s premiere finds that as everyone is returning from the holiday break, NBC’s new talent competition, “America’s Kidz Got Singing”, is a hit, but Jenna’s role as the judge everyone loves to hate causes Jack to question the show’s family value. Much to his chagrin, Tracy’s usual antics fail to aggravate Liz, while Kenneth takes the day off to do his dream chores as he awaits the Rapture.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards (VH1) – It’s the first big award show on the road to the Oscars. Plenty of stars will be in attendance and the fashion will be AMAZING as it usually is at these things. For the list of nominees, check out the Critics’ Choice website.

 

 

8:30/7:30c

Parks & Recreation (NBC) – Winter return. Another show that is absolutely hilarious. I finally got to the end of season 1 and it seriously hilarious. Gotta catch up to the current season. On tonight’s episode, Leslie enlists everyone’s help in staging an attention-getting event. Ben explores a new hobby, while April and Andy adopt a pet.

Rob! (CBS) – Series Premiere. This show stars Rob Schneider and that should just about tell you all you need to know about this show. It looks awful. Almost as awful as the ABC show, Work It. Rob plays a guy who use to be a confirmed bachelor, but just recently married into a tight knit Mexican family. Here is a clip. 

9/8c

The Finder (FOX) – Series Premiere. This is a spin-off from the show Bones. It stars Geoff Stults (7th Heaven, October Road) as Walter, an investigator who uses his  gift of finding things (get it The Finder) to help others recover what they’ve lost.  Michael Clarke Duncan(The Green Mile, Talladega Nights) also stars as Walter’s lawyer. Here is a clip. 

The Office (NBC) – Winter return. This show has been very hit or miss this season after Steve Carell’s departure. Mostly miss and I’m just hoping the they find their footing soon. On tonight’s episode, Oscar joins a trivia night contest, Andy decides to get the whole office involved. Meanwhile, Dwight visits Sabre headquarters to explore other job opportunities.

Person Of Interest (CBS) – Winter return. This show started off slow but it really picked up half way through the fall. They also put Taraji P. Henson in a lot more episodes so that also made the show even better. Tonight’s episode has Reese working the computer while Finch does the legwork with their latest POI, a building super who keeps too close an eye on his tenants. Meanwhile, Detective Carter may finally get her long-awaited glimpse into a case.

9:30/8:30c

Up All Night (NBC) – Winter return. This show is hilarious. I thought it was ok when it started but it got better as the season went on. On tonight’s episode, Regan’s competitive streak surfaces during a New Year’s Eve game night, much to Chris’ chagrin. Meanwhile, Kevin suspects that Ava may be ashamed of him; and Missy shows up with a surprising date.

10/9c

The Mentalist (CBS) – Winter return. Jane and the CBI team narrow down the long list of suspects after a high-end divorce attorney, with many enemies, is killed on his speed boat. Meanwhile, Jane is questioned by Agent Darcy about whether Red John was responsible for Panzer’s murder.

Meeka Claxton Out of Basketball Wives


For those who like this show, Wife of retired NBA player Speedy Claxton (who), Meeka Claxton is done. I guess VH1 decided to let her go. Basically the drama with her and Tami was too much and they chose Tami to stay on. In my opinion this show needs to die and Meeka needs to thank her lucky stars not to be associated with it anymore. I can’t stand it. I’ve watched maybe an episode or 2 and I just can’t handle women that look like me acting ridiculous like that. I’ll watch a Real Housewives of whatever (which is the same show but with less melanin) before I watch this show. It doesn’t even matter that she is gone. Shaunie O’neal and VH1 are just gonna find some other desperate NBA baby mama/ex-wife/eternal girlfriend/groupie to take her place.
