Week in Preview: June 13, 2009 – June 19, 2009

Bringing a show back from hiatus after it's been announced as cancelled is like offering someone on their 12th step a free beer. But if you think you can handle the tease, tune in for the return of Kings (NBC, 8 PM) and see how King Silas prevents the spread of a deadly plague. Crackberry? Maybe?

Speaking of series cancellations, tonight marks the final episode of Pushing Daisies (ABC, 10 PM), which entails a murder investigation at a traveling aquatics show. Sounds like the perfect set-up for an emotional farewell episode.

Wait, people die on Harper's Island (CBS, 9 PM)?! This is one crazy reality show! What's that you say -- it's not just a jacked up version of Survivor? How 'bout that. In any case, tonight the remaining characters turn on each other, and then they come together. And then I'm guessing someone dies.

Sunday June 14, 2009

The trailer for season two of True Blood (HBO, 9 PM) mostly just predicts a lot of ass-kicking and pants-dropping. Other than that, a creepy little girl invites Bill into her house by saying, "Won't you please come in, sir?" which immediately made me think of "Please sir, can I have some more?" True Blood meets Oliver? A musical number sure would lighten the mood.

STOP! It's Hammertime (A&E, 10 PM)! Check out the series premiere to see Hammer (why'd he drop the MC?) be quite amusing while leading his family in Spring cleaning. This show just might be 2 legit 2 quit.

Monday June 15, 2009

The recent sexual tension between Casey and Cappie has been almost painful to watch, and it's finally time for her to choose on the season finale of Greek (ABC Family, 8 PM). Meanwhile, Dale and Calvin take a purity pledge together. The hormones they are a-ragin'.

Don't you love it when two reality shows combine? It's like yo, this just got even realer. This week on Jon & Kate Plus 8 (TLC, 9 PM), the guys from American Chopper (yes, the biker show) come to PA design a custom motorcycle for Jon. And apparently the three of them have a "surprise" for Kate.

On this episode of Weeds (Showtime, 10 PM) Silas and Doug attempt to start their pot farm, Shane goes to live with his aunt, and Nancy visits Guillermo in prison. But really, we don't care. Just tell us if she's really pregnant or not!

Word on the street is that nurses everywhere are all in a tizzy because Nurse Jackie (Showtime, 10:30 PM) is kind of a badass. What, most nurses don't put Percs in their coffee and then leave it to end up in the hands of the hospital administrator? Woops.

Tuesday June 16, 2009

It sounds like Jada Pinkett Smith's character on Hawthorne (TNT, 9 PM) is going to be everything that House is not. But we'll watch it anyway in case Will makes a cameo.

This nerdy looking guy named Josh Dorfman is going to teach some self-important person how to go green on the series premiere of The Lazy Environmentalist (Sundance, 9 PM). I'm sold.

Shit's gonna hit the fan tonight on the season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo, 10 PM) when Danielle whips out "the book." Also, Teresa officially takes the title of most socially inappropriate person ever.

This week's episode of Mental (FOX, 9 PM) is entitled "Manic at the Disco," which has barely anything to do with the plotline about a suicidal 8-year-old boy, but is still really hilarious.

Wednesday June 17, 2009

Watch the RW/RR Challenge: The Duel Reunion Special (MTV, 10 PM) to see everyone talk about one another like they're not even in the same room and find out who managed to hide the fact that they were totally doin' it. Hopefully Landon (who is a man among men, by the way) will get some vindication for getting screwed over in the finale.

On the season finale of The Unusuals (ABC, 10 PM), Beaumont and Cole go undercover to catch a criminal that breaks into people's apartments to shoot pornos. How...unusual.

Thursday June 18, 2009

In what might be the most practical mini-challenge of The Fashion Show (Bravo, 10 PM) ever, the designers will revolutionize college campuses everywhere, transforming last night's party outfit into today's work ensemble. Keep your heads held high, walk of shamers.

Hank and Divya are called to give an "executive physical" to a senator's son on Royal Pains (USA, 10 PM). If nothing else, watch the show just to find out what in the world that even means.

So maybe it's exploitation at its finest, but Farrah's mother comes just short of calling her daughter the anti-Christ in this week's episode of 16 and Pregnant (MTV, 10 PM). How can you say no to that?

Friday June 19, 2009

Chopping Block (NBC, 8 PM) returns from a hiatus with the "Big White Challenge," which has nothing to do with sharks or obese Caucasians (that we know of), but does entail the teams cooking for a restaurant full of couples on blind dates.
