Pajiba After Dark: At Least 50% Of You Are Excited Because of This
Last night the world got some extremely big news that I am not at ALL qualified to discuss which is really unfortunate since tonight’s television offerings are duller than watching paint dry for the most part. Actually, I’m kind of eager for most of the current shows to end and the summer series to start because there’s a few I’m actually interested in and they’ll give me something new to talk about. Right now? It’s like “Hey, it’s Monday! That means ‘House’ is on! Again. Because I’m sure some of you still get excited about that, maybe.” And “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is over so I can’t even be jealous of those of you who get Logo. At least until “Be Good Johnny Weir” comes back. Then I’ll be breaking out the voodoo dolls. Here’s your Monday night TV:
7:30pm: “NHL Playoffs: Boston at Philadelphia, Game 2” on Versus
8:00pm: “90210” on The CW
“Antiques Roadshow” on PBS
“Chuck” on NBC
“Dancing With the Stars” on ABC
“House” on Fox
“How I Met Your Mother” on CBS
“Love & Hip Hop” on VH1. First season finale.
“The Secret Life of the American Teenager” on ABC Family
“NBA Playoffs: Atlanta at Chicago, Game 1” on TNT
“WWE Tough Enough” on USA
8:30pm: “Beverly Hills Fabulous” on VH1
“Kid in a Candy Store” on Food Network
“Mad Love” on CBS
9:00pm: “All Worked Up” on TruTV
“American Chopper” on Discovery
“The Bad Girls Club: Reunion” on Oxygen
“The Chicago Code” on Fox
“The Event” on NBC
“Gossip Girl” on The CW
“Make It or Break It” on ABC Family. This name has always bugged me because… break what? I know it’s a show about gymnastics and there are some fairly nasty injuries one can get participating in gymnastics so that doesn’t make me feel better about what the title is trying to convey. Although I guess “Make It or Just Quit And Start Menstruating” isn’t quite as snappy.
“Relapse” on A&E. First season finale.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race: Reunited” on Logo
“Stargate Universe” on SyFy
“WWE: RAW” on USA
9:30pm: “Mike and Molly” on CBS
10:00pm: “Bethenny Ever After” on Bravo
“Castle” on ABC
“The Hard Times of RJ Berger” on MTV
“Hawaii Five-0” on CBS
“Kate Plus 8” on TLC
“Law and Order: Los Angeles” on NBC
“Nurse Jackie” on Showtime
“Paranormal State” on A&E
“Pawn Star$” on History
“Sanctuary” on SyFy
“Setup Squad” on Logo. Apparently this revolves around a ‘dating service’ which hooks people up with wing-men or women rather than actual dates. So… it’s like “rent a friend” but with slightly more purpose.
“Southern Fried Stings” on TruTV
10:20pm: “James May’s Road Trip” on BBCA. Second season premiere.
10:30pm: “Paranormal State” on A&E. Sixth season premiere.
“Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory” on MTV
