It’s cloudy and drizzly today, but I tend not to mind that as much on Sundays as I do on other days. Mostly because it gives me an excellent excuse for laying around on the couch watching whatever awful movies are being broadcast that day and possibly napping, which is usually what I want to do on Sundays anyway but I feel less guilty about it when the weather’s bad and because it is a weekend I actually can stay home all day in my pajamas without consequences. I hope that everyone else out there is having a nice Sunday afternoon and evening, however you choose to spend it. Here’s your Sunday night TV:
7:00pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC
“Dateline NBC” on NBC
“Les Misérables 25th Anniversary Concert at the O2” on PBS
“Ruby: My Naked Truth” on Style
8:00pm: “The Amazing Race” on CBS
“America’s Next Great Restaurant” on NBC. Series premiere.
“Basketball Wives” on VH1. Second season finale.
“Brick City” on Sundance
“The Family Crews” on BET. Second season premiere.
“Food Network Challenge” on Food Network
“Ruby” on Style. Fourth season premiere.
“Secret Millionaire” on ABC. Series premiere.
“The Simpsons” on Fox
“When Vacations Attack” on Travel. The title of this had to do with a group bungee jump going wrong and I thought for sure they were going to refer to this incident which I’ve seen on no less than three “disaster caught on tape” type shows over the years. However, it appears there is a different group bungee jump gone horribly awry on showcase tonight. Just so you know.
8:30pm: “Bob’s Burgers” on Fox
9:00pm: “The Apprentice” on NBC. 11th season premiere.
“Army Wives” on Lifetime. Fifth season premiere.
“Ax Men” on History
“Big Love” on HBO
“Cake Boss” on TLC
“Californication” on Showtime
“Chopped: All Stars Tournament” on Food Network
“Daniel Tosh: Happy Thoughts” on Comedy Central
“Desperate Housewives” on ABC
“Family Guy” on Fox
“Love & Hip Hop” on VH1. Series premiere.
“Undercover Boss” on CBS
9:30pm: “The Cleveland Show” on Fox
10:00pm: “Breakout Kings” on A&E. Series premiere. This series is centered around the concept of using criminals to catch criminals and the creators are probably really hoping that the promotion blitz they’ve been doing for this ensure that you don’t notice that there are currently at least two other shows airing (“Leverage” and “White Collar”) that use this same idea. Never mind other shows, novels, movies, etc. that previously existed. Also, I’ve heard them bandying about that “From the makers of ‘Prison Break’” as though anyone was watching “Prison Break” for reasons that didn’t involve ogling Wentworth Miller or Dominic Purcell.
“Coming Home” on Lifetime. Series premiere. All about soldiers reuniting with their families after long tours of duties. Do not watch without an ample supply of tissues.
“CSI:Miami” on CBS
“Iron Chef America” on Food Network
“Kourtney and Kim Take New York” on E
“Ask Oprah’s All Stars #4” on OWN
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” on Bravo. Sixth season premiere.
“Shameless” on Showtime
“Taking on Tyson” on Animal Planet. Series premiere.
“Brothers and Sisters” on ABC
10:30pm: “Holly’s World” on E
