Kitchen Nightmares (BBC America) — Season finale. When a woman has as many reality shows as Gordon Ramsay does, we call her a whore.
Mary Knows Best (Syfy) — Series premiere. Here’s the premise from Yahoo: “Meet Mary Occhino: a radio host, psychic, and mother of three grown kids. A few of her offspring are following in her footsteps — one of them is a reluctant psychic, and another is a paranormal investigator — but the third is a skeptic.” That description is so textbook sitcom-y that I can’t even tell if this is scripted or a reality show. Probably the latter. It’s cheaper, after all.
Boston Med (ABC) — A few weeks back, I joked that the title fit in nicely with “Boston Public” and “Boston Legal,” and that the only thing missing was “Boston Police.” Then sexy fried food enthusiast Becky emailed to point out that “Boston’s Finest” once existed, but never made it past the pilot stage. Oh, Hollywood, thank you for being you.
Futurama (Comedy Central) — I still can’t make myself a fan of this show. Like, I can watch it and enjoy it if it’s on, but I’m never like, “Man, I gotta watch ‘Futurama’!” But I’m happy for you if you like it.
Big Brother 12 (CBS) — Live! Oh my gosh, who’s going to get voted off? I have no idea, because I have no idea who’s even on the show. But if I had to guess, I’d say either the muscular guy or the attractive in-shape girl.
