Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday) – Lindsay Lohan hosts. Maybe. I mean, there’s at least a chance she just doesn’t show up, right? All I’m saying is that if I was Lorne Michaels, I’d have Tara Reid on standby. You’d barely even have to change the jokes. (Musical guest Jack White.)
Blue Bloods (CBS, Friday) – The 16th most popular show in America airs at 10 p.m. on a Friday night. We, as a country, need to get out more.
The Fast and the Furious (Bravo, Friday) – Over the past year or so, I’ve become fascinated by cable channels playing movies that seemingly have nothing to do with the rest of the shows on their schedule. (Previous example – CMT playing Dangerous Minds.) An action movie about street racing airing on a channel mostly aimed at women and gay men falls squarely into that category.
GCB (ABC, Sunday) – Series premiere. The show stars Leslie Bibb (Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) and is based on the book Good Christian Bitches. I wonder what “GCB” stands for. Probably something like “Great College Bands” or “Giant California Boas.” Welp, I guess we’ll never know.
The Good Wife (CBS, Sunday) – Josh Charles has one hell of a schnoz.
The Walking Dead (AMC, Sunday) – You can either watch this episode on Sunday night, or just go to the AMC website between now and then to see if they’ll just tell you what’s going to happen. Could be a real timesaver.
Luck/Eastbound & Down/Life’s Too Short (HBO, Sunday) – I’m going to be very sad when “Eastbound and Down” is over for good. Treasure it while you can, people.
Shameless/House of Lies/Californication (Showtime, Sunday) – Showtime is a network I really appreciate. The shows they’ve created over the years, I don’t really watch them. But the fact that they’re making them? I respect that.
