I feel like I’m getting better at this because the reaction to last week’s fake show was less feeling certain that it was fake and more begging me to tell you it was fake. Well, good news, everybody! “Gimme Some Sugar” was, in fact, fake. For now. I don’t doubt that a show very much like that is making its way across some reality show producer’s desk right now. Congratulations to Irina, emmalita, Monica, and DataAngel for correctly identifying it. Also, thanks to TheOtherGreg for giving me the idea for this fake show. And thanks to the producers of “Spell-Mageddon” for giving me an absolutely beautiful decoy this week. I’m almost disappointed that I didn’t make that up.
“The Killing” on AMC at 9:00pm ET.
“Unforgettable” on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. Oh my god, so many terrible ‘I totally forgot about this show!’ jokes are flitting around in my head despite the fact that I know I’m better than that. Except that I’m not, apparently. I TOTALLY FORGOT THAT “UNFORGETTABLE” WAS COMING BACK, YOU GUYS!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!
“Copper” on BBCA at 10:00pm ET.
“The Newsroom” on HBO at 10:00pm ET.
“Total Divas” on E at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new reality series following the exciting behind-the-scenes lives of the WWE Divas. Because there’s a lot of demand for that? I guess any excuse to put pretty ladies who don’t frequently wear a lot of clothing on TV is a good one.
Genevieve Burgess is anticipating that a show very much like “Gimme Some Sugar” will be on a cable network’s lineup by May, 2014. You are all now potential witnesses when she sues for credit.
