Right now (Sunday night, I’m prewriting) I’m in Orlando, which I will leave tomorrow to take a train back to Miami. Once in Miami I will enjoy the comforts of my house for approximately 15 hours before leaving to get on a plane to Memphis, where I will spend about 40 minutes before boarding another plane to Baltimore. That’s four cities in a little over 36 hours. Looking at that all written out I really don’t know what to do except ask the Pajibans to pray for my sanity in that time period. Unless you’d really love it if Pajiba After Dark became thousand-word screeds about the inherent evilness of hair gel, then by all means root for my mind to snap like a dried twig when the person next to me on a flight and/or train manages to step on my foot or elbow me in the chest like I’m somehow invading their space even though I’m one of the few people I know who genuinely fits into a coach airplane seat with ass-space to spare. As I’m packing and enjoying what may be my final hours of being questionably sane rather than certifiably insane, here’s what the rest of you can watch on TV:
8:00 p.m.: “20/20: Inside the Bachelor: The Stories Behind the Rose” on ABC. Two hour special presentation. I get cross promotion for shows on the same network, but this just feels like overkill.
“Chuck” on NBC.
“House” on Fox.
“The International Sexy Ladies Show” on G4. Each week this is on I grow more intrigued as to what, exactly, could be going on here but I just can’t bring myself to watch. Yet. Give it a few weeks.
“Life Unexpected” on The CW.
“Top Gear” on BBCA. Eric Bana is the guest and it’s the 13th season finale.
8:30 p.m.: “Rules of Engagement” on CBS.
9:00 p.m.: “24” on Fox.
“Celebrity Fit Club” on VH1.
“Gossip Girl” on The CW.
“Home Rules” on HGTV. Series premiere.
“Rupaul’s Drag Race” on Logo.
“Trauma” on NBC.
10:00 p.m.: “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” on Travel. He’s in China this week.
“Rip the Runway” on BET. One hour special presentation.
“Damages” on FX.
“Greek” on ABC Family.
“Kell on Earth” on Bravo.
“Law and Order” on NBC. I’m so glad the “Law and Order” shows are back at 10pm again. It felt weird when they were on earlier.
“The Price of Beauty” on VH1. Series premiere. The goal of this show is to investigate different standards of beauty all over the world and what people go through trying to achieve them. It sounds like a very thought provoking and interesting show, until you find out Jessica Simpson is hosting it.
“Rupaul’s Drag Race: Untucked” on Logo.
“Secret Diary of a Call Girl” on Showtime.
10:30 p.m.: “Be Good Johnny Weir” on Sundance. This show better come out on DVD because I will add it to my Netflix queue immediately and possibly buy it if it lives up to my fabulous Johnny Weir loving expectations.
“Secret Diary of a Call Girl” on Showtime. Third season finale at a special time.
