Daily Picks For Thursday, June 5, 2008

by Lauren Gitlin June 5, 2008 6:00 am
Behind the scenes with Babs et. alI know you are but what am I? Feast your eyes on the candy-colored Tim Burton classic Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (HBO Family, 4 PM). Tell 'em Large Marge sent you.

Have you spent your nights lying awake wondering what confluence of events made it ok to regularly discuss menopause and episiotomies on network television? Then you'd be wise to watch The E! True Hollywood Story - The View, which clocks in at a whopping ninety minutes. Expect a goodly portion to be devoted to the Rosie vs. Hasselbeck throw-down and Star Jones' gastric bypass surgery.

Ok it's confession time: I find Dr. Drew ... foxy. But there are plenty of other incentives to checking out VH1's Celebrity Addiction Special (VH1, 9 PM). They're just escaping me at the moment ...

Feathered hair! Grant Show! A soundtrack featuring Wild Cherry! Just a few of the myriad reasons you'd be a fool to miss the pilot episode of Swingtown (CBS, 10 PM), CBS's new and (hopefully) salacious depiction of polyamory in the suburbs.

Watch as JT morphs from boy band-er with expertly placed highlights into urban music titan and squire to A-list starlets (oh, and Britney, duh) on Biography of Justin Timberlake (Bio, 10 PM)

It's been a long and winding road on the maiden season of Step It Up & Dance(Bravo, 10 PM). Despite initial misgivings, we're convinced it succeeded in distinguishing itself from the seventeen other dance-related competition shows that have aired concurrently, if only because it dared to feature cameos from Jason Alexander and Toni Basil over the course of nine episodes AND made Elizabeth Berkley (sorta) relevant again. The finale airs tonight. We salute you, Nomi Malone!
