Chuck (NBC) — Steve Austin, Stacy Keibler, and Nicole Richie all have guest roles. That marks the first time I’ve ever written “Steve Austin” and “Nicole Richie” in the same sentence. It’s also a huge downgrade from last week’s guest star, Old Spice spokesman Isaiah Mustafa.
Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo) — Season 3 premiere. Quick tally of the “Real Housewives” cancer — Orange County: six seasons. New York: three. New Jersey: three. Atlanta: three. D.C.: one. Presently in production: the first season of a Beverly Hills edition. Guhhh. Fortunately, this cat picture can cheer me up.
Dancing with the Stars (ABC) — David Hasselhoff and Michael Bolton were the first people voted off. Well played, America.
The Big C (Showtime) — Bryan Cox guest stars as Laura Linney’s cranky father, proving that Showtime knows a hell of a lot more about casting grump old dads than CBS. Lookin’ at you, “Bleep My Dad Says.”
Mike and Molly (CBS) — The DVD of Wet Hot American Summer has a special cut of the movie that adds fart noises throughout the film. I can’t wait for this show to get the same treatment.
The Event (NBC) — This has been getting some buzz over the last couple of weeks, but I’m going to keep ignoring it for now. Monday nights are football-watchin’, anyway. (Psst, live-blog of
Jets-Patriots-Dolphins at KSK.)
Money Hungry (VH1) — Season finale. Hey, remember this show? Summer TV feels like a hundred years ago.
