No Capes!

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 9, 2011 |


Welcome to the beginning of the mid-season replacement extravaganza! Where all the shows that weren't given a shot in September come back to plead their case by stepping over the corpses of their fallen comrades. And, of course, I get a whole new slate of shows to mock, so it almost looks like I have fresh material for a couple weeks. Hooray! Here's your Sunday night TV and feel free to rate the shows in the comments, Olympic Gymnastic Judge style (by which I mean bribes are not only welcomed, but encouraged. ARE YOU LISTENING NBC? I HAVE STUDENT LOANS!):

7:00pm: "60 Minutes" on CBS

"America's Funniest Home Videos" on ABC

"Dateline NBC" on NBC

8:00pm: "Basketball Wives" on VH1

"CSI: Miami" on CBS

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" on ABC

"Food Network Challenge" on Food Network

"Jerserylicious" on Style

"Nature: Elsa's Legacy: The Born Free Story" on PBS

"Ask Oprah's All Stars #2" on OWN

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" on TLC. This show is apparently being cancelled, but no official reason for it's cancellation is forthcoming. Probably just because I heard it's boring as shit, but whatever.

"The Simpsons" on Fox

8:30pm: "Bob's Burgers" on Fox. Series premiere. Wait, what? An animated show airing on Fox on Sunday night that's not a Seth MacFarlane property? Must be a mistake. Though you won't catch me complaining about more H. Jon Benjamin on my TV.

9:00pm: "Ax Men" on History

"Bridalplasty" on E

"Californication" on Showtime. Fourth season premiere.

"The Cape" on NBC. Two hour series premiere on a special night. Any thoughts on this? Kind of looks like "Heroes" but with far less extraneous characters. Still, always remember what Edna Mode said about capes. I don't see a long future here.

"Desperate Housewives" on ABC

"Family Guy" on Fox

"Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane" on Style

"Masterpiece: Downton Abbey" on PBS. 41st season premiere.

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" on TLC. Series finale.

"Undercover Boss" on CBS

"What Chilli Wants" on VH1

"The Wild Within: Off the Grid Alaska" on Travel. Series premiere.

"Worst Cooks in America" on Food Network

9:30pm: "Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business" on VH1

"The Cleveland Show" on Fox

"Episodes" on Showtime. Series premiere.

10:00pm: "Iron Chef America" on Food Network

"Kendra" on E

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" on Bravo

"Rich Bride, Poor Bride" on WE. Um... is this as terrible as it sounds or am I being unnecessarily judgy?

"Shameless" on Showtime. Series premiere.

"William, Kate, and 8 Royal Weddings" on TLC

"Top Gear" on History

"Brothers and Sisters" on ABC

11:45pm: "Robot Chicken" on Adult Swim. Fifth season premiere.
