Romantically Challenged (ABC) — Series premiere. This is getting terrible reviews, but it’s on ABC and it’s tailored to women, so it should do just fine.
Damages (FX) — Season finale. It’s also likely that this will be the series finale, as positive reviews don’t cover the ad rates when no one’s watching the show. I don’t know what it was about this show, but it could never pull in new viewers. I’m a huge convert to the church of FX, and I never considered watching “Damages.” I blame all the people wearing suits. I see suits and I think “lawyer,” and when I think “lawyers on TV,” I instantly don’t care. I missed the first season of “Mad Men” when it aired because of that.
Top Gear (BBC America) — It’s a special 100-minute episode tonight, as Jeremy goes wildly over budget making a film about the BMW X6.
24 (Fox) — Apparently, this season has gotten pretty good again after sucking for hours 5-10. See, the thing is, when a show has four or five lousy episodes in a row, I stop watching. Smell ya later, “24.” Smell ya later forever.
Dancing with the Stars (ABC) — Every couple will dance to a well-known song from a film. “Ooh, I can’t wait!” said your girlfriend who also wants to tell you about today’s episode of “Oprah.”
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (Travel) — Ron Jeremy makes an appearance in this episode about the world’s sexiest food. Helpful suggestion to Tony: stay away from the mashed potatoes.
