Rizzoli & Isles (TNT) — I saw a trailer for this at the movies earlier this summer, and I made a mental note to keep an eye out for the show’s debut. It debuted seven weeks ago, and this is the first time I’ve remembered it or seen anything about it. It looks astoundingly bland. They should have just named it “LADYCOPS!”
Kate Plus 8 (TLC) — Kate Gosselin parades her tortured spawn around New York City. Elsewhere, Jon fondles a lonely ampersand.
Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo) — Last week was the season finale, so of course there’s another episode this week. That’s just the way things work around here.
Dance Your Ass Off (Oxygen) — Season finale. Fat people dance.
Dating in the Dark (ABC) — I finally got to watch this again last week. Absolutely delightful: a Chippendales dancer happily ended up with a fat girl, and a smoking-hot blonde with huge fake breasts got ditched by an ultra-Christian virgin. I absolutely want to be on this show. Except instead of women I might date, I’d like the room to be filled with puppies. “Puppies in the Dark” would be a ratings smash.
