Jersey Shore (MTV) — Season finale. At last. This season went on forever; it’s like they’ve been in Italy most of my adult life. In other “Jersey” news, BadtvBlog compiled this season’s most depressing quotes, while With Leather brings us the news that Ronnie will be the fourth “Shore” member to dabble in pro wrestling.
Gigolos (Showtime) — Season premiere. This is the state of reality TV: Showtime wants to do a show about male hookers, and it wants to show the sex, so it pays the women who are supposedly paying for sex to do the sex scenes. Everyone’s a whore!
The League (FX) — Ruxin tries to keep Taco away from his new au pair played by Brie Larson (inset, click for larger) of ”United States of Tara” and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. She makes me wish there was a super-woman named Alison Brie Larson.
Charlie’s Angels (ABC) — One of your last chances to watch this show. Thank God.
Sweet Home Alabama (CMT) — Season premiere. A good ol’ boy from the South has to choose between 10 city girls and 10 country girls in this reality dating series. Perfect viewing for people who think “The Bachelor” isn’t white enough.
Project Runway (Lifetime) — Part 1 of a 2-part season finale. So really, next week is the season finale.
Rules of Engagement (CBS) — Season premiere. David Spade stars in a network comedy in 2011; Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Reno 911!,” Bridesmaids) plays his new wife that he regrets marrying.
