The Travel Channel's new show Paranormal Challenge premieres tonight at 9 PM. It's a ghost hunter show, but also a competition -- because there aren't enough ghost hunter shows or competition shows on TV. It's just what we were missing in our lives. So if you're into a bunch of crazies who shout "Come play!" into the dark because they think they hear children's voices, then this is for you! If you couldn't tell already, I'm a skeptic. So I'm not watching unless I get to see actual ghosts, like the creepy children The Others.
Don't believe the title -- Daily Show veteran Rob Corddry's cult Cartoon Network series is definitely not child-friendly as it creepily combines two things that every kid hates: clowns and hospitals. Grown-ups, on the other hand, have been laughing their asses off at the antics of Dr. Blake Downs and his fellow medical "professionals" for three seasons now, making it one of the most-watched shows in the Adult Swim line-up.
You can't keep a good nanny down. Fran Drescher returns to television with this semi-autobiographical sitcom about a recent divorcee named -- what else? -- Fran, whose ex-hubby (ace scene stealer John Michael Higgins) has just emerged from the closet and stands blinking in the sunlight as an out-and-proud gay man.
Hopefully we all did the sensible thing and took the day off from work to watch ABC Family's marathon of Season 1 today, yes? Of course we did. The entire nation probably did. It's the only thing one can do when there's a Pretty Little Liars marathon on. So I'm just going to dispense with the rehash and focus on what happens tonight, which is: all the Liars have to go to therapy to deal with their non-stop tragic lives -- together. O. M. G.
Secret Life's third season may have ended just a week ago, but the fourth season starts tonight, and thank goodness for that. After last week's tragedy, to make audiences wait any longer than seven days would've been cruel. It's usually shows like this that we make fun of for being so soapy -- and rightly so! It seems like someone is either pregnant or getting proposed to in every episode. But credit where credit is due -- last week was pretty powerful. Tonight is the calm(ish) after the storm.
It's the gayest night on television!
No, really. Ryan Murphy's newest cash cow The Glee Project is committing the musical theater cardinal sin: airing opposite the Tonys tonight. Theater folk, which one will you watch? Obviously, the Tonys. But just in case you want your commercial breaks to be filled with song and dance too, you can head over to Oxygen and check this one out.
Tonight is the Season 1 finale of Starz's soapy guilty pleasure Camelot retelling, and all I can do is wonder why they didn't save this series for the summer to begin with. It's full of boobs, melodrama, bad acting, cheesy fantasy and beautiful gore. It's basically True Blood with British accents, if you think about it.
It's country music's biggest night! Or is that the CMAs? Or the ACMs? ACAs? Does it even matter? Not at all! Just like country music, country music award shows are the same. Everyone shows up, but Taylor Swift takes everything home.
The second season of Gordon Ramsey's billionth cooking show premieres tonight. (It's the first part of a two-part premiere -- the second part airs tomorrow night.) If you're unfamiliar, the premise is as follows: Gordon Ramsey finds regular people who are not chefs at all, but have a passion and talent for cooking, and gives them the chance to become... you guessed it! A master chef.
The Real L Word returns for its second season tonight on Showtime -- this time around with a slew of new faces (only Whitney returns from Season 1). While it's a little strange that Showtime just did away with the Season 1 cast -- who were in the middle of some pretty big storylines -- this season promises more drama than the first. The poster, along with (I kid you not) a picture of the girls covered in mud and not much else, tells us, "This time, they're getting dirty."
