A lot of the American readers of Pajiba After Dark are likely looking forward to the three day weekend we’ve got this week. Of course, the bad news about Memorial Day weekend is that it tends to mark the departure of basically all television shows worth watching. Makes my job easier, but more depressing for the next few months. So I hope everyone enjoys their picnics, pool parties, or day spent lounging around in PJs but while doing so, give a thought to the brave service people whose sacrifices are being honored this weekend. Here’s your TV:
8:00 p.m.: “Flash Forward” on ABC. First season finale.
“So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox. It says “Two hour seventh season finale” but I swear they mean “premiere.”
8:30 p.m.: “100 Questions” on NBC. Series premiere.
9:00 p.m.: “Hollywood Salutes Matt Damon: An American Cinematheque Tribute” on ABC. One hour special presentation.
“Police Women of Memphis” on TLC. Third season premiere. TLC’s programming schedule is like, the craziest thing on the air these days. I’m pretty sure it’s run by someone’s schnauzer.
10:00 p.m.: “The Dudesons in America” on MTV.
“Mall Cops: Mall of America” on TLC. Series premiere. I blame Kevin James for this. I have no hard and fast basis to do so, but I am.
“The OCD Project” on VH1. Series premiere.
“The Real Housewives of New York City” on Bravo.
10:30 p.m.: “Mall Cops: Mall of America” on TLC.
“Samantha Brown’s Great Weekends” on Travel. Third season finale.
“Ultimate Parkour Challenge” on MTV.
Late Night Listings:
“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on NBC featuring Katherine Heigl, Matthew Morrison, and Allison Moorer.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC featuring Chris Harrison and Stone Temple Pilots.
“The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson” on CBS featuring Michael Sheen and Band of Horses.
“Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” on NBC featuring Ann Curry, Steve & Joann Ward, Reflection Eternal.
