Pajiba After Dark: Holy Mother

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Pajimoms out there! I hope your offspring and/or spouses were appropriately demonstrative today. There have been some great mothers in television but I don’t think there’s many on tonight. From what I understand of “The Borgias” and “Game of Thrones” those ladies are just as likely to have their kids killed as they are to read them a bedtime story. However, I encourage all of you with a great mom in your life to do one thing tonight: hand her the remote. That may mean watching “CSI: Miami” because she finds David Caruso hilarious (Hi, mom!), that may mean having to sit through commercials because if you change the channel she might miss when the show comes back on, or it might mean turning the TV off for the night altogether. You’ll survive, I promise. Here’s your Sunday night TV:

7:00pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS

“America’s Funniest Home Videos” on ABC

“Dateline: NBC” on NBC

7:30pm: “American Dad” on Fox

8:00pm: “The Amazing Race” on CBS. Two hour 18th season finale.

“The Apprentice” on NBC. New three hour episode. Good thing we already got Osama so there’s no chance that this 180 minute ode to Trump will be interrupted by actual news, thus damaging Mr.Trump’s belief that he is the most important thing on TV.

“Bert the Conqueror” on Travel

“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC

“The Family Crews” on BET

“Mob Wives” on VH1

“Nature: Bears of the Last Frontier” on PBS

“Last Cake Standing” on Food Network. Second season finale. How much longer do you think the cake show trend is going to last? And what’s the next big decorative food trend? Fruit and veggie carving? Extreme plating? Head to head marzipan sculpting? The mind, she boggles.

“Masterpiece!: South Riding, Part 2” on PBS
