Stupid French Vowels
Against all odds I’ve actually managed to be marginally productive this weekend despite sleeping way too late both days and the associated hassles and time suck of making a police report because my bike got stolen. I’m looking forward to the end of the semester so I can go back to having weekends that can be spent doing my best impression of someone with narcolepsy before I get bored with that and start seeking out new projects to fill my time. And after next week I won’t have any more “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” to watch on Saturdays for a very very long time, so I’ll have to find something to fill that gap. Here’s your Sunday night TV:
7:00 p.m.: “60 Minutes” on CBS.
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC.
“Dateline” on NBC.
“Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” on Animal Planet.
“‘Til Death” on Fox.
8:00 p.m.: “The Amazing Race” on CBS.
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC.
“Life: Hunters and Hunted” on Discovery.
“The Simpsons” on Fox.
“Sunday Best” on BET. I didn’t realize what this was until they showed a clip of it on “The Soup” this week. Apparently it’s “American Idol” but for Gospel singers. That sounds kind of awesome and I may start watching when they get to whatever their equivalent of “Hollywood Week” is.
8:30 p.m.: “The Cleveland Show” on Fox.
9:00 p.m.: “The Apprentice” on NBC.
“Brandy and Ray J” on VH1. Series premiere. Remember when Brandy had her own career based on her talents and didn’t have to leach off the pseudo-infamy of her brother whose only real accomplishment is having sex with Kim Kardashian on film? Yeah. I remember that.
“Brothers and Sisters” on ABC. Back to back new episodes at a special time.
“Family Guy” on Fox.
“Holmes on Homes” on HGTV.
“Life: Insects” on Discovery.
“Masterpiece! The Diary of Anne Frank” on PBS.
“The Pacific” on HBO.
“The Tudors” on Showtime. Fourth season premiere. I’m still disappointed that they’re not going to make Jonathan Rhys Meyers wear a fat suit to play a more convincing Henry the Eighth.
“Undercover Boss: 1-800 Flowers” on CBS.
9:30 p.m.: “American Dad” on Fox. Returns from hiatus.
“Gene Simmons Family Jewels” on A&E.
10:00 p.m.: “Army Wives” on Lifetime. Fourth season premiere.
“Ax Men” on History.
“Basketball Wives” on VH1. Series premiere.
“Breaking Bad” on AMC.
“Cold Case” on CBS.
“Deadliest Catch: Best of Season 5 Opilio Crab” on Discovery.
“Hoarding: Buried Alive” on TLC.
“Iron Chef America” on Food Network.
“Kirstie Alley’s Big Life” on A&E.
“Treme” on HBO. 90 minute series premiere. Every time I read the name of this show, I pronounce it wrong in my head. I keep thinking “Treme” like the end of “extreme” but it’s supposed to be more like “Tre-may”. I’ll have to do some mental exercises with that since it’ll probably be a super hot show and I’ll actually have to pronounce it out loud at some point.
