10 Things I Hate About You (ABC Family) — This is a serialized reinterpretation of the 1999 movie starring Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, and Joseph Gordon-Leavitt (not all that bad, despite this scene), which in turn was a reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, which was also made into a musical called Kiss Me, Kate, which then had a film adaptation of the same name (minus the comma).  Ugh.  Even though this is supposedly a timely update, it’s on ABC Family so I’m giving it two big middle fingers up.

The Great American Road Trip (NBC) — Families in RVs head west across Route 66 and compete in challenges while seeing all the landmarks along the way.  I wonder if they’ll hit up the methamphetamine labs in the California desert.  Ever been to Victorville?  Amboy?  Nothing there but death, meth, and Manson fans.

Warehouse 13 (Syfy) — Two federal agents, sexual tension, and paranormal activity.  Apparently “Warehouse 13” is where the government keeps the X-Files.  Watch the trailer here.

NYC Prep (Bravo) — It’s still on.  It’s still awful.

Heroes Among Us: The 2009 Hero Awards (MyNetworks) — Dean Cain hosts the annual award show honoring “people who make the world a better place.”  Kathy Ireland will get an award tonight — I assume for heroically being the driving force behind me first learning to masturbate.

Bite Me with Dr. Mike (Travel) — Surprisingly, this isn’t about vampires: a virologist looks at harmful creature (this episode: Vietnam).  The vampire series you’re looking for is called “Suck It with Retarded Teens.”
