The real networks have yet to roll out their television schedules, so for the moment, we’re still suffering the network-let shows. I know someone here is excited about one of the shows returning tonight, though. I won’t say who, but her name rhymes with Pacey.And Jared Padelecki makes her ALL CAPS hard.
Here are the night’s television highlights, such as they are.
— The series premier of “Vampire Diaries,” over on the CW.
— The NFL kicks off (!) with the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the Tennessee Titans on NBC.
— The 5th Season Premiere of “Supernatural,” over on the CW.
— “Skins” continues on BBCA.
— Trash TV Alert: “Police Women of Broward County” on TLC.
— “Aces of Cakes” on the Food Network (I understand this is the better of the cake shows).
— “Behind the Music” on VH1 covers lil Wayne, cause apparently they’ve run out of real musicians to document.
— “Project Runway” on Lifetime offers some decent counter programming to football. This is where it’s beneficial for many married couples to have two televisions.
— “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” over on Bravo is a nice reminder of what Bravo is missing since it lost “Runway”
