Past Life (Fox) — Series premiere. From Yahoo: “Dr. Kate McGinn, a paranormal psychologist who studies the soul, and Price Whatley, a skeptic NYPD detective who tolerates nothing but hard facts, join forces to solve ancient mysteries. By delving into clients’ past lives and out-of-body experiences, the pair cracks cases that have eluded traditional investigators for years.” In short: they use reincarnation to solve crimes. The reviews are calling the writing for the show “shockingly bad.”
American Idol (Fox) — I haven’t seen anything more than “Pants on the Ground” this season, so I don’t know what’s going on, but I think this is the judging debut of Ellen Degeneres. At the very least, it’ll be a good lead-in for “Past Life” before that show flames out.
Lost (ABC) — On tonight’s episode, things you can’t explain happen.
RuPaul’s Drag Race (VH1) — Do you want to be terrified by this show? Look at this.
Teen Mom (MTV) — Season finale. Spoiler alert: none of the babies grow up to be Tim Tebow.
Little Miss Perfect (We) — I love that TLC and We have competing shows about children’s beauty pageants. Now if only they can make a show about dwarf children’s beauty pageants where their talent is making cake. Ratings GOLD, baby.
