Daily Picks For Monday, June 23, 2008

by Lauren Gitlin June 23, 2008 6:00 am
Follow that asparagus spear!The title Growing Up Giraffe (4 PM, Animal Planet) is a reason in and of itself to tune into this Animal Planet show. I'm sure it's probably about baby giraffes (CUTE! Just died from exposure to CUTE!) but I'd prefer to think it's about a bunch of Long Island giraffes with mob ties who live with their mom and use a lot of hair gel.

In inimitable fashion, E! brings us another riveting docu-drama in the form of THS Investigates Spring Break Nightmares (E! 5 PM). What they don't realize is that spring break is inherently a terrifying prospect. All those wet T-shirt contests and body shots and bad tans and mandals? Ugh. Nightmare doesn't even begin to describe it.

Another instance where the name alone is reason enough to tune into this show. What on earth do you think Follow That Prawn (FLN, 5 PM) is about? Is it like the Sesame Street movie Follow That Bird, only with a big walking shrimp? A girl can dream!

Sure, new eps of The Bachelorette and American Gladiators are airing tonight. But snoozefest '08! I'd rather watch an old episode of Gossip Girl (The CW, 8 PM). This is the one where Blair turns 17. Any episode where Blair is the focal point is brill in my book.

Quick! Before the Broadway show begets another awful bigscreen remake! Enjoy the unspoiled beauty of John Waters' Cry-Baby (Encore, 6:30 PM) the way it was always meant to be enjoyed. There's a character named Hatchetface for god's sake. Not to mention Johnny Depp looking foxy as all get out.

The Middleman (ABC Family, 8 PM) is my new favorite show, not the least of which is because Matt Keesler is a stone cold fox. Don't believe me? Feast your eyes on a new episode tonight.
