Ruining the Concept of a "Fixer Upper" for 7 Seasons
Arrow on The CW at 8:00pm ET. I’ve finally started hearing good things about this show from people who aren’t actively lusting after the Stephen Amell, so I’m considering giving it a chance. I have a hard time with superhero series, though, as the longer they go on the more improbable I find the conceit. A two hour movie is nothing, but the contrivances necessary to keep a secret identity AND YET have allies and enemies over the course of several months of TV just irk me.
Psych on USA at 9:00pm ET.
The Americans on FX at 10:00pm ET.
Flipping Out on Bravo at 10:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere. I partially blame house-flippers for turning the housing market around so fast that my head’s still spinning. That’s cool, though, I’m a millennial with student loans so I won’t be buying a house until I’m 50 no matter what they cost!
The Fabulous Life Of… Kim + Kanye on VH1 at 10:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere. This is, apparently, all about how Kim Kardashian and Kanye West chose to spend their money. Because between the tabloids, other celebrity-spotting shows, and the reality show starring one of them, we definitely need another one hour special all about how there’s a whole lot of really expensive things out there that are also hideously tacky.
Genevieve Burgess would like to believe she’d be better about spending her money, but there is surely a gold-plated laptop desk with a silk-velvet pillow out there with her name on it.
